Considering there are no plans to localize the site, I don't see why this (and other examples) weren't coded in originally. –  Jon Seigel Jan 25 '10 at 13:36

We should have a single questions where all the problem plurals are listed - a master list to be used in the event that Jeff sees the error of his ways on a programming website, given that programmers are pedantically picky peoples. –  Adam Davis Jan 25 '10 at 17:14
    
Thanks for asking this. I gained 20 rep for an answer on the duplicate. –  Andrew Grimm Jan 28 '10 at 6:57
    
This is not a duplicate: "viewed 1 times" has been fixed but "1 questions" has not. –  Hugo Dec 7 '12 at 9:37
    
@Hugo It has been fixed: i.stack.imgur.com/oCQ0B.png. –  Anna Lear Dec 25 '12 at 22:01
    
@AnnaLear: Good stuff, fixed on site-specific profile pages, but still unfixed on the accounts page. For example, this has "1 questions" and "1 answers". –  Hugo Dec 25 '12 at 22:07
    
@Hugo That's a completely different page than reported here. :) Come to think of it, it's possible that Accounts page didn't even exist when this bug report was posted. If you feel strongly about it, toss up a new post. Be prepared for the MSO meme. –  Anna Lear Dec 25 '12 at 22:12

Should be "one time". You've added an extra s. Which is ironic, as the question is about plurals. –  Kobi Jan 25 '10 at 13:35
