comment Translating: “一人でも多くの方にコメントしていただけたら嬉しいので ”
@phoenixheart6: The particle for もらう・いただく (to receive) is に because に points to the source of the thing you are receiving. You can also use から, but I hear/see that a lot less frequently. Using は or が shows who is doing the receiving. 私はXさんに本をもらう → I will get/receive a book from Xさん.

comment Expressing: “Send them over/up, please”
[[ I don't want to poach the answer spot that yadokari and oldergod should get, but in my experience, 送る has definitely been used. ]] Why not? They didn't bother to make their thoughts an answer.

comment How does the use of いかんによっては in this question determine one answer over another?
@DaveMG: Yes, I want to understand Japanese as much as possible too. But like I said before, I think that'd make a better question on its own (my opinion), because you could explore the whole "realm" of は, not just in how it relates to 〜いかんによって.

comment How does the use of いかんによっては in this question determine one answer over another?
@DaveMG: I think that would better be a question of it's own, and that your original question "How does the use of いかんによっては in this question determine one answer over another?" HAS been answered; since it's a JLPT question, the two forms (one with and one without the は) carry two different meanings. So knowing those meanings helps you choose the correct answer on the test.

comment Grammar problem
Welcome to JLU! This sounds too much like a "Please translate for me" question, which usually get closed. I suggest rewording your question to include what you think might be correct, why you think so, and then ask for any pointers. "Show your research" as it were.

comment Do we use odd day pronunciations outside of calendar ranges?
Did you read that whole comment? Sounds like either way is fine for out-of-calendar-range numbers.

comment Pronunciation of 日 in compound words
@Kaz: But the "ateji" reading itself is kunyomi, as Dono explained in his opening comment about 月立ち. So that doesn't count?

comment Pronunciation of 日 in compound words
@小太郎: : edited wording in my answer for clarity. As for not putting , indicates the length of the period and puts focus on it. For the "4 days before"/"6 days after", you're not really focusing on the whole 4/6 day interval, just which day it is. I'm not 100% positive that you can't put it in, but it feels wrong to me.

comment Pronunciation of 日 in compound words
@Dono: [Hence, the claim is 一日 does NOT use (or have) a kun reading "as noted with 一日目"]. Wrong. The claim is that 一日 does not ALWAYS USE the kun reading. ついたち is a kun reading, is it not?

comment Pronunciation of 日 in compound words
@Dono: Nitpicking continued - Then your example didn't disprove anything; in fact, it further proved it because the quote said "use the kun readings" and you provided another kun reading.

comment What purpose does は serve after へ in this sentence?
@Dono: I'm too lazy to do most things myself. That's why I became a software developer.
