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

It's 1 vote, 1 view, yet 1 kviews?
One wouldn't say one kilotons, or one kilobytes.

Is there any logical reason for this?

Actually, in this case I think it's fine. Because unlike "kilobyte", "kiloview" isn't really a word, I read "kviews" as "thousand views", so "1 kview" would feel wrong to me.

I won't comment on other singular/plural issues, because I like being alive.

If I would have read that, I might have made sure to wear a helmets. – oKtosiTe Jan 8 '11 at 11:28
@oKtosiTe, Giant S-es are immune for helmets. Especially if wielded by someone with a high geek factor. – Toon Krijthe Jan 8 '11 at 12:37
Jeff is probably just as tired of seeing this quote as he is of seeing pluralization bugs – Michael Mrozek Jan 8 '11 at 19:47
@Michael His fault :) – marcog Jan 8 '11 at 19:48
@Michael So the next time it will read, "Dear Next Person Who Quotes My Pluralization Bug Threat,..." – Mark C Jan 8 '11 at 21:11
