I use to post in a certain forum and many a time I write "Regards" as a farewel greeting. Is not this a bit formal? If it is, I'd like to be less formal. "Cheers" sounds to me informal enough, I mean a trade-off between rigid formality or the kind of greetings used in commercial correspondence on the one hand, and being totally informal on the other one. But isn't that greeting used from old people towards young people? I've only seen that greeting, in the forum mentioned above, written by people who only answer questions to people who know much less on the matters treated in the forum.

What about "good bye". Is there anything wrong in writting "good bye" at the end of a letter? Well, it's for you to speak. I won't explayar [spanish verb in infinitive form] any longer. Regards.

You could write "Thanks/Thank you in advance" if you have asked for help.
