Depends what variety you're aiming for and what you're trying to express.IpseDixit wrote:In another post I wrote:

But then I thought that maybe I should have written "I still haven't seen"... which one is better?
For me, there is a distinction. The first I would use when talking about a display problem. That is, I've been told the results are posted, but I've tried viewing them and I can't see them. So I tell someone and they say they'll try to fix it. But I try again a couple days later and still can't see them, so I write to them saying, "It's Tuesday, March 3 and I still don't see the results." The version with present perfect is more generally applicable. Maybe I haven't seen them because they aren't ready yet or maybe because I haven't yet looked for them.
