comment Are the subjunctives of “brauchen” and “verbrauchen” different?
@Hendrik: I think an ngram of a single word without a comparison is next to useless.

comment What typographical rules are applied when creating the “Esszett” in a new font?
@Takkat: I agree that the keyboard question is not really on topic either. However the other two are questions about punctuation which is part of German orthography. Character design certainly is not.

comment What typographical rules are applied when creating the “Esszett” in a new font?
Come to think of it, this question is actually off-topic. There is a graphic design site that should be better suited.

comment What typographical rules are applied when creating the “Esszett” in a new font?
To be honest: I fail to see the real problem. Sure there are a lot of variants but that is true for many letters, e.g. a, g, w, and &. And these are only latin letters. (Admittedly, I'm no type designer but merely a typography geek.)

comment Verwendet man Abkürzungen in (technischen) Texten?
Nun, in der Frage ging es ja eher um Abkürzungen wie z. B. oder bzw. Die gehören m. E. nach nicht in ein Glossar. Dann lieber ausschreiben. Für technische Begriffe halte ich ein Glossar und evtl. Ausschreiben bei erster Benutzung aber für angemessen.

comment How do I answer a phone call?
I used to do that too. However I don't think you have to be particularly polite when answering a phone anymore. Someone else wants something from me (the least of which is my time). It also creates a lot of confusion when e.g. you still live with your parents and get confused with your father/mother all the time. All this only applies when I don't know/see the caller ID.

comment Translation of IT term “code folding”
Just as a starter: I usually check what other programs do. A quick example would be Geany which uses Quelltext-Ausblendung. (I agree with the others that you shouldn't translate it though.)

comment Using “nen” instead of “einen”
@fzwo: That's a bad example because it is an expression in itself. I heard the wrong nen more often than I want to remember...

comment Using “nen” instead of “einen”
If you really want to sound like a native, you shouldn't restrict your usage of nen to einen but also einer and eine. In my experience especially in chats but sometimes in sloppy speech it is used like that. Personally I despise this usage and it absolutely drives me nuts.

comment Does using the pronouns “sie” and “er” when refering to objects sound odd to native German speakers?
I have to disagree (which highlights the subjectivity of this question). I think in this case it does sound slightly odd; especially compared to "schauen Sie sich die Datei an". However in the general case using such a pronoun for a thing is not odd to me ("Ich habe sie [die Datei] schon gesehen.")

comment Is “ich biere gern” a correct sentence to use instead of “ich trinke Bier gern”?
Well, it's true that the term being declared as a neologism may suggest it's already widely used. It might even be the case. I have to concur with nd01 in that I never heard of it though. However most natives—albeit being puzzled—may guess what it means and I can imagine this being some sort of trend word in certain societies.
