"Please be advised"

issue

#1

I just want to ask a question. I don’t want to insult anyone.
I am not a native english speaker, neither is the pimax staff.
In every big message from pimax the last line is “please be advised”.
Is that something which got confused with translation chinese->english->german (in my brain) ?

I understand sentences like: “Please be advised, that this or that…” But I don’t understand the meaning if you put it alone at the end of a message.

Does it mean I have to read the message carefuly? Is it a chinese phrase which makes less sense in english?

Perhaps a native english or chinese speaker can help me here. Because I was wondering many times. :slight_smile:

(As I said, I don’t mean this question like an insult. I am not a english speaker myself. I am just curious.)

:smiley: Yesterday, me and my wife had some brainstorming about this moment. No success.

Has the resource?

English is not my native language too. I can use only some simple grammar, and sometimes I think in Thai and translate in English and may using wrong word sometimes or some word which not be needed.

“Please be advised” --> Please advise (backer advise to pimax?).
But it is passive tense --> You will be advised (soon), please… lol , I don’t understand too.

But when I read some topic, may it mean “please wait…”

I beleive the intention simply means along the lines.

Please be patient message received & are working on request/issue.


#5

Yeah, probably some expression that doesn’t translate very well in google.


#6

Point is, pimax should stop saying this

I found a definition of please be advised.

Please be advised

Essentially meaning: “I am an asshole.” The beginning words from someone or something that is about to reject, worry or disappoint you.

Yes, but pimax dosn’t use it in a sentence. It is a sentence. That’s why I don’t understand. An example:

It dosn’t make any sense in this context. That’s why I think it’s a translation thing…

Outer Limits - Please Standby! :smirk::flushed:


#10

It’s being used in a statement like it means something like , next message will be forthcoming with more info.

Much like a service desk “i’ll do the needful” statement :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

It always makes me think of “all your base are belong to us” :slight_smile:

‘Please be advised’ in this context just means ‘FYI’ although a regular English speaker wouldn’t put it at the end like that (or anywhere…)

I want to know, if it takes 10 natural days, how many supernatural days does it take? :ghost::ghost::ghost:

It’s just a kind way of saying “please keep this in mind” or “please be aware.” I don’t see anything wrong with it.
