Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

“viewed 1 times”

Call me crazy but on a question's view if there is only one view, it states '1 views'. I have no idea why, but that really bothers me.

I do not think that it would be a big/hard change to make, simply add a line or two of code before the text is displayed:

viewSuffix = numOfViews == 1 ? "time" : "times";
var viewDisplay = string.Format("{0} {1}", numOfViews, viewSuffix);

Does this sort of thing bother anyone else? It seems like I am a minority on stuff like this, as I see the same 'mistake' on other websites/counters.

Seriously, how long is any question going to be at ONE VIEW?

C'mon! You're not even trying to file bugs when you file this stuff! :P
