    For example in an interview you wish to ask the whole panel of interviewers a general question.

    I would say "I was wondering if you guys xyznmns??", however, the refering to the panel as "you guys" seems rather uncomfortable and a shade to informal for the setting.

    Can any of you guys:yep: :nah: come up with more suitable alternatives>

    Just "you" without the guys is perfectly acceptable.

    How about just "you"?

    You don't need to put "guys" on the end to make it plural...
