comment What is the correct term for paper that has become wet and deformed as it dried out?
If it were actually creased, I'd probably say wrinkled, but yeah, good point.

Upvoted cockled, but +1 for crinkled too. That's the word that most people would understand.

comment I work “at” registrar's office or “in” registrar's office?
To be honest @sumelic, I think you were a little bit rude here today. Not in a serious way, but enough to annoy. I only suggested the other site, and you dismissed me in two words, then accused the OP of expecting a proof reading service. +1 for the duplicate, but -1 for manners.

+1 I take back the bit about it being a better fit for ELL.

comment I work “at” registrar's office or “in” registrar's office?
@sumelic -- The part the OP is unsure about is clear: Should they say they work at or in the registrar's office, which seems like a bad fit for this site to me.

You can say that you work in the registrar's office or at the registrar's office.

Welcome to the site. You would likely find English Language Learners a better fit for this question.

comment How to say thank you for someone tried but could not help me?
Yes, that is a perfectly natural and appropriate thing to say. You can also use thanks all the same, which no one has mentioned in the answers yet.

comment Use of “don't mention it” for “you're welcome”?
Minor gripe: It doesn't make sense to distinguish between Black teens and young people.

comment Use of “don't mention it” for “you're welcome”?
There are also no worries, no problem and it was nothing. These are all used in the UK too.

comment “page has not updated” or “page has not been updated”
Both are equally valid and correct: The page has not updated. The page has not been updated. -- Welcome to the site.

comment Phrase meaning keeping faithful during painful trials and tribulations
The OP is looking for phrases, but +1 anyway -- endure is a good word here.
