Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

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.
