comment Quand doit-on commencer un mot par une majuscule (noms de mois, de lieux, etc.)?
Nous avons juste discuté dans le chat si on doit écrire "les québecois" ou "les Québecois", alors je pense que cette question reste pertinente et intéressante.

comment J'ai bien peur que tu n'aies raison : faut-il mettre le mot « ne » ?
This could do with being a more generic question about when to use 'ne' on its own, without a 'paired' word like 'pas', 'plus', 'que', etc.

comment How does one “toast someone” in French?
I'd really appreciate if someone could address the 'trinquer' verb in an answer. I'm confused as to when you would use it.

@StéphanePéchard EL&U partially defines itself as a reference. If something is well-established in practical usage, you can perhaps tell people that it is now the rule. Things could work similarly here.

@StéphanePéchard That depends on whether you're as inflexible as l'Académie française or not. ;-)
