comment Confused by “lange” as adverb
That would be wrong. In fact the adverbial here also should contain Zeit IMO.. but it seems that was dropped somewhen

@dirkt because kurze is not an adverbial. To ger the adberbial you need. to specify additionally: 'Ich muss kurze Zeit warten'

comment Besser als meines – why “meines”?
@Mac meintest du nicht "Mein Deutsch ist besser als das von dir."? Und inwiefern ist "meines" kein Possesivpronomen? "Das da ist mein(e)s."

comment Besser als meines – why “meines”?
@Mac "Dein Deutsch ist besser als wessen?" vs. "Dein Deutsch ist besser als was?" m.E. sollte es "wessen" sein.

comment Besser als meines – why “meines”?
Neuter what declension? There is no actual way to declense something into neuter. While it actually is the neuter declension that's used, it is genitive neuter what you want. So genetive declension is not wrong, but also not fully correct..

comment Using definite article with people's names
@guidot disagree. I do not, most people I know don't and I find it to have the air of childishness. Also being from and living in south Germany ...

comment Using definite article with people's names
lol offense? none taken ;) Additionally SO is the same. Not a forum, but a Q&A site. I try to keep these as separate as possible. The rules and mechanics are intrinsically different, and to prevent mixing stuff up I try to purge every reference to any se-site as "forum" or similar ;)

comment Using definite article with people's names
I took the liberty to slightly edit your questions. I personally very much dislike the name "forum" for this site, as well as "thread" for questions. Additionally you were talking about the "accepted" answer. If you disagree with the edits, feel free to roll back or call me out in German Language Chat or German Language Meta ;)

Ich bin nicht sicher ob das ein Regionalismus ist, der sich auf Köln und Umgebung beschränkt.

comment Connotation of the word “Mischling” for Germans
@Matthias I've been here for almost 2 years now. I didn't witness any edit wars yet and I have full confidence in our mods to act if something were to happen. Whenever you have questions like that: German Language Chat and German Language Meta are your best chances to get an answer:)

@Matthias when you see such things happen, don't hesitate to flag for moderator attention. If you think an edit was invalid you have the right (and imo duty) to object.

comment Connotation of the word “Mischling” for Germans
FWIW the second edit was by an anonymous user. I have no idea why this went through the edit queue but I used my privilege to roll back the edit. Any further discussion about this should be moved to German Language Meta. I can also be found in German Language Chat in case there are objections. In case of more vandalizing edits I will flag this post for moderator attention. Additionally to already given points the edit partly invalidated already given answers!
