comment Why the preposition “à” in “à cette saison”
@AbhimanyuArora I keep seeing you write "merçi", so I just want to say you don't need the cedilla, it's spelled "merci" as i is a soft vowel.

comment How do I write “Thousand Hearts” in French?
Nice suggestion. However I will point out that "One Thousand and One" is already 1001 (mille et un). The French version didn't add an extra night to the tales.

comment Doit-on écrire « sûrement » ou « surement » ?
@Zistoloen La nouvelle orthographe n'a jamais vraiment réussi à supplanter l'orthographe traditionnelle. Comme Un francophone l'a dit, les deux variantes sont correctes, mais un texte doit être cohérent. Un mot orthographié selon les rectifications dans un texte écrit selon l'orthographe traditionnelle sera considéré mal orthographié, et vice-versa.

comment Utilisation des subjonctifs imparfait et plus-que-parfait
@indoxica Downvoting is part of the system as much as upvoting is. If you hover over the downvote button, the tooltip says "This question does not show any research effort; it is unclear or not useful" and that is most likely the reason it was downvoted, but as much as explanations are nice and encouraged, they are not mandatory. Also please do not take downvotes personally, we've all received them on our questions or answers for reasons known and unknown.

comment The “comme pour mieux nous cacher que le logos, […], nous trahit” quandary
I think the underlying question is fine, but the current formulation makes some people queasy. You basically have a "what does this phrase mean, why is it constructed this way" question, but your (very commendable) attempt to explain it yourself covers it up some and makes it look like it'd only be helpful to you, and we try to avoid those kinds of question. But I don't think it's one. You could either edit it to clear that up if you wanted, but I don't think anything is going to be done to it if you leave it as is.
