This is one place where I feel the pluralization strategy is fine - and I just got finished sending another one to our esteemed Aussie to fix. –  Jarrod Dixon Mar 16 '12 at 6:39
    
@JeffAtwood There has been a few like this hasn't there? (One by me also ;P) –  Benny Mar 16 '12 at 8:22
    
@JarrodDixon Same pluralization is correct on summary tab. In past, 1 Times has been corrected to 1 Time. Then, why is this one status-bydesign? –  Sachin Shekhar Mar 16 '12 at 21:49
    
To me, the identifying text beneath each stat in the table acts as a header - the only reason it isn't a header cell is because there're 80+ sites in our network now and it's impractical to scroll back to the top to see what is in each column. –  Jarrod Dixon Mar 17 '12 at 5:45
    
Now I'm going to see if header cells with a fixed position would look good and remove all the duplicated text completely - nothing to properly pluralize then! –  Jarrod Dixon Mar 17 '12 at 5:48

1 Answer 1

This is not a bug.

It's actually a clever feature designed to encourage people with obsessive-compulsive tendencies who are bothered by this sort of thing to contribute more content to the site.

If you ask another question and post another answer, the problem goes away. It's not the developers who are at fault here, it's you!

If it is, go here: serverfault.com/users/71823/sachin-shekhar . Here, you can find words "1 Question" & "1 Answer". Why is that? –  Sachin Shekhar Mar 15 '12 at 10:15
