What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

There's a minor typo on the Established User page:

User hover cards allow you to show off your awesome to other users in our network.

Should "awesome" be corrected to awesomeness or some other synonym?

Fair enough - changed question title & switched "bug" tag to "discussion" –  JW8 Sep 6 '11 at 23:32

Awesome is being used as a noun, therefor the correct place for this question is on english.se –  Mark Henderson Sep 6 '11 at 23:46

@Matthew I thought this went against the professionalism SO tries to convey. –  NullUserException อ_อ Sep 6 '11 at 23:49

Since a site for programmers is bound to be filled with pedants who are offended at the slightest little mistake, it would awesome if this was fixed.

@TimPost But you see, we can get our daily quota of awesome after they fix the typo, so indeed it will awesome! –  Yi Jiang Sep 7 '11 at 5:42
    
@Yi Jiang - Well, I guess +1 for recursive awesomeness then. –  Tim Post Sep 7 '11 at 5:50

A more in-depth article, devoid of said "creative liberty", is available on Meta Stack Overflow's privilege page, and will eventually be rolled out to the other sites.
