comment Comparing 我一个弟兄们 with 我的一个兄弟
@user6065 this usage of 么 as in 我一个弟兄么 is not uncommon in spoken language. I agree with songyuanyao's speculation.

comment Usage: Spaces in Chinese
Agree with @Stan it's typography instead of punctuation. The first example is for alignment with 3-character names. The "spaces" in the second example are virtually tabs formatted as spacing.

If you find the correct pronunciation difficult, prefer /ʌn/ over /æn/ as the former sounds dialectical but the latter sounds foreign.

comment Can I communicate without changing tones?
I would say 90% for simple daily sentences, 50% for complex ones but if you repeat it in different ways eventually people will get it, but that's no easier than learning the tones.

comment Is Regulated Verse Used In Modern-Language Poetry?
If you are asking whether there modern poetry do not or should not rhyme, that is not the case. They do not have to rhyme or follow strict metrics anymore but the people can choose to, and plenty of modern poems do.

comment What does "不等“ add in 从A到B不等?
Note the example sentence isn't strictly grammatical or natural 这个商店的价格从五十元到五千元不等 means the price to buy the store (unless you mean it). It's more correct to say 这个商店里东西的价格从五十元到五千元不等.
