    Letter writing stuff

    Firstly, what do I put if I don't know the person's name.

    Like Уважаемый Пётр Иванович, but what happens if I don't know the name.

    Like, "Dear Sir/Madam"?

    Also how does one say "give me your e-mail address"?

    Уважаемый/ая ... ! (если знаешь имя, но не знаешь пол).
    Или можно никак не обращаться, просто написать "Добрый день!"

    "give me your e-mail address":
    Сообщите мне, пожалуйста, Ваш электронный адрес.
    или
    Дай мне своё мыло!
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    Лучше написать "Здравствуйте!"
    «И всё, что сейчас происходит внутре — тоже является частью вселенной».

    Couldn't you also make it slightly more formal and use Уважаемый + title/position/role. Something like министер, коллега, клиент, избиратель, и т.д.? Presumably TATY would know the position of the person he's writing if not their name/sex...
    Заранее благодарю всех за исправление ошибок в моём русском.
