"certain people" have a "you-know-who" sound to it.
We didn't publish those documents and no one believed us.
We published those documents in national press and some of the people (of the population) believed us.
We published those documents in legal journals and certain people (lawyers, judges, law makers, etc.) believed us.

Native speakers think differently than most people who speak Engish as second language, you need to look for the shortcuts.
Neglecting that it sounds like a Ponzi Scheme, you may say :
Bring a friend and share a discount!
Bring more friends, share more discount.

Flavor means taste, aroma.
To give flavor to something, means adding a distinct taste to it. Like, by adding cream to coffee you alter its taste, add the cream flavor to your drink.
I haven't come across a context where the word flavor is used in physics. But your sample context suggests that it is used as "alternative outcomes".
This comes in two flavors: The weak termination condition and the strong termination condition.
Are these sentences grammatically correct and Natural enough?

When in doubt, rephrase.
1) Could you please provide your input
the below email?
The word input is plural already.
2) Do you have any input about going to the gym for me?
This one seems OK but replacing input with advice would be better.
3) Thanks for your insightful input.
This one seems fine.

I'd phrase it :
"A 16-year-old Singaporean is in critical condition at National University Hospital (NUH) after collaps
at home on the morning
Saturday (Jul. 3). He had received his first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine on Jun. 27."

According to wikipedia:
Distribution of colours in national flags
one of 15 astronauts to have landed on Mars

You may use future perfect tense :
"Peter, one of the 15 astronauts who will have landed on Mars by 2024,..."
"Peter is an astronaut who will be landing on Mars."
Pretty much just a number...

It may be in the correct context, but standing alone it doesn't look like a complete sentence.
Maybe : "
What I saw was
Pretty much just a number of things racing through my overactive imagination
or so I thought."
Anyway, you would need a comma before "or so I thought"
