Yep, it confused me :-) As I look at your explanation, I feel sheepish for mixing up cases.

comment Stellungnahme mit “Meiner Meinung nach”
Wow, that's a great observation. It is true! I could not wrap my head around the usage because of this. You can see that my original sentence in the question is framed like the way you have explained. (nach diese Thema)

I'm sorry, I meant subordinate clause, wrong words.

Okay, just to make sure I understood properly, I'll take another example. Q: Wie wichtig ist heute ein Hobby? A: Meiner Meinung nach ist heute ein Hobby nicht so wichtig. Am I correct?

comment Understanding usage of Wechsel Dative Prepositions
Just out of curiosity, does a native speaker also make mistakes while speaking? I mean it is soo difficult to remember everything. I don't even know half of my native language, even though I have been speaking it since young age.

comment Understanding usage of Wechsel Dative Prepositions
Oh great! I thought because "Wer" is there, we used Dative. So, prepositions of time/place is dative and directions is accusative. Will this logic apply to every sentence? I don't want to make mistake while writing to my German colleagues, and I really want to start writing e-mails (at least with basic responses) so that I get better soon.

comment Forming compound sentence using 'and' and 'because'
Oh, so is this sentence formation correct? Habe ich Ihnen sagen, dass ich 100 in Prüfung bekommen habe? (Did I tell you that I got 100 in the Test)

comment Forming compound sentence using 'and' and 'because'
So whichever verb comes at the end remains there and the conjugated form of the verb (be it hilfes verb or modal verb) comes at the end.

comment “Das Haar” oder “die Haare” als Kopfbehaarung
Scalp is the tissue on top of your head that has many hairs attached to it. I think die Haare makes more sense.
