comment On the declensions of the pronoun “man”? Part I: Finding a substitute for the genitive for “man”
Jemands kenne ich auch nicht, jemandes hingegen schon, wobei auch dieses nicht sehr gebräuchlich ist.

Ich würde stark vermuten, dass hier eine Analogie zu fotogen, telegen und filmogen besteht.

comment How to type the capital ß (ẞ) on a Windows 8 German keyboard?
@userunknown: Man kam auch jahrhundertelang ohne große Umlaute oder einen Unterschied zwischen großem I und J aus. Aber bevor das jetzt in eine Diskussion über das Für und Wider des Versaleszetts ausartet, hier eine Zusammenfassung der Argumente für das Versaleszett.

comment How to type the capital ß (ẞ) on a Windows 8 German keyboard?
Just to clarify: The original question used U+1E9E (Latin Capital Letter Sharp S, ẞ) and not U+00DF (Latin Small Letter Sharp S, ß). All I did was adding “capital ß” in order to make this more clear for users who cannot see the difference for technical reasons or because they did not spot it. (And in particular I did not change the topic of the question at all.) Whether the capital eszett in the original question was intentional or not is something only the OP knows. @KareemErgawy: Could you please confirm or refute this?

You might also want to take a look at this question. The ẞ is only for all-caps, so you likely don’t need it for now.

The question is about the capital ß (and I edited it so it to make this clear).

comment What's the meaning from “Machenschaft”
@Toscho: Ich habe den Fehler erstmal bewusst dringelassen, da er Teilursache des Problems sein könnte. Außerdem finden sich tatsächlich Abhandlungen über Heidegger mit Machenshaft, wie ich gerade festgestellt habe.

comment Can one suppress the comma of a relative clause in parenthesis?
You can mostly apply the first part of my answer about dashes and commas here: Commas and parentheses roughly have the same function here and thus you do not need both. Funnily, the official spelling rules are not much clearer than the Duden and also have no corresponding example.
