"nie to widzę" = it is not this what I see. "Nie widzę tego" is the right form :)
Well, you can't omit it in English, unless you go with less formal "thanks". And in Polish... it just seems obvious that it's 'you', unless specified otherwise (Dziękujemy im = We are thanking them, for example).
"dziękuję" is the 1st person singular form, "dziękujemy" is 1st person plural.
So you usually say "dziękuję" because that's literally "I thank", but sometimes you say "dziękujemy" (we thank) because you're saying it not only on your behalf. For example if I am with my girlfriend in a restaurant and the waiter brings our food, it's natural to say "dziękujemy" because we both thank him for bringing the food - even if only one of us says it out loud.
Here, the person saying that probably speaks on behalf of their whole company, or something like that.
But is there a rule as to when I had to move the suffix indicating a conditional case to a preceding... Preposition? I grew accustomed to inexplicable rules in the Slavic languages, at least since yesterday, when one of the moderators in the Czech course recommended to someone to not ask where the logic was left with some verbs and the random meaning they can represent, depending on prepositions like O. :D
"Gdyby" is a complete word simply meaning "if" - the suffix is not "moved" from the verb to the conjunction (not a preposition) - it's just a completely different word from "gdy" (meaning "when"). Some conjunctions just have this suffix "-by" built into them. Most common are: aby, gdyby, jakby, żeby - if you use them, you don't repeat the suffix in the verb following them. Other conjunctions that don't have this suffix are treated differently: you either add the -by suffix to the verb, or write it as a separate word, for example: "If I was rich" = "gdybym był bogaty" = "Jeśli byłbym bogaty" = "Jeśli bym był bogaty". Notice that these conjunctions conjugate due to that -by suffix - conjunctions don't normally conjugate (they are invariant). Strangely enough, I couldn't find any mention of that fact anywhere - all sources just say that conjunctions are invariant, and then casually list exmples of conjunctions including gdyby, jakby, żeby, that do, in fact, conjugate because of that ending.
So, to sum up: you don't move the "-by" suffix, you just don't repeat it if the conjunction already has it.
p.s.: Those 4 most common conjunctions are synonyms by pairs:
gdyby = jakby = if (they can be used to start a conditional clause, so these are the cases where you have to drop -by from the verb following them)
aby = żeby = in order to (also just "by" alone can be used here)
"żeby" is also sometimes used as "if", but it's rare. There is also "ażeby" synonymous with "aby" and "żeby", but it's rarely used (it sounds very pretentious).
