comment Is it correct to use で in this sentence if I want to convey “and”?
You're sure ですが is better? Sounds to me like you're changing the meaning to like 'even though it's still a month away I can't wait', but I feel like the OP's intent is more of 'it's only a month away now and I can't wait' (in which case just で might be best - 発売日は来月で待ちきれない).

revised If 「は」 marks a topic, and 「が」 marks a subject, what does 「です」 do in terms of nuance?

Yeah, I can see you're right - it's rare enough for me to have never seen it. Answer will be updated.

comment Help translating this paragraph: doubts about 「への」and「と共に」forms, and structure of a sentence beggining with 「これ」?
AFAIK への is about the only way to make an adnominal out of に in certain situations (like this) - that's probably why it's used with 参加.

Came up with them on the spot ^_^

I don't, but I'd love to find out if someone else does!

comment Please teach me more about ハダカ格
Yeah, the standard analysis is just that zero-marked core nouns are marked with a が or を that's subsequently been deleted. I really doubt that a zero-marked subject contrasts very much with one marked with が or は - certainly not enough to call it a whole separate case.

comment Why is Austin spelled with an オ?
As an Austinite myself, I definitely pronounce it with [ɑ], but since Japanese is based off of spelling and in whatever idealised American dialect it's based off of 'au' is [ɔ], it comes out as オ.
