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

I have done some research and realized this isn't the first time:

Small grammar bug on area51 (1 users instead of 1 user)

So here you go:

It'd be nice if the grammar were correct! :)

You'd better hide from the 'S' now: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/9662/… – Manishearth Apr 4 '12 at 6:14

Did Jeff hand that S over when he left? – Belinda Apr 4 '12 at 8:28

In all seriousness, I do find correct pluralization to be a sign of attention to detail in software. The argument (or rather religious debate here) is, it's often attention to the wrong details. But, good luck, and may the S be with you. – Tim Post Apr 4 '12 at 8:46
    
@TimPost Do those S's work like boomerangs? Differently, I imagine Stack Exchange needs to buy a new giant S every time it uses one. ;) – kiamlaluno Apr 4 '12 at 13:52

@TimPost as long as it's an improvement it's not the "wrong" details, fixing something is never wrong and leaving something unfixed is never right, it's just a matter of priorities. – Ben Brocka Apr 4 '12 at 13:52

grumble fine!, but only because to match other places like this we already fixed it grumble

Right now we have the habit of bludgeoning any pluralizsation complainer with a giant S.

This is great, but kind of messy. So I have a counter proposal:

Let anybody that wants to report a pluralization bug, bake a giant sized S shaped cake and get it to the SE team (fresh and complete).

I should take it from Italy, and USA customs would not let me take it with me. – kiamlaluno Apr 4 '12 at 13:53
