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

Looking at some badge pages, the title reads:

$num Users earned this badge. Recently awarded to:

But for badges that can be received multiple times this is incorrect, and should actually be:

This badge was awarded $num times. Recently awarded to:

Because there are $num badges but less than $num users involved. This is of course a bit pedantic, but the real reason I've noticed this is that I'm interested in seeing the distribution of such badges. More specifically, what I would really like to see is something like the following:

This badge was awarded $numawards times to $numusers different users. Recently awarded to:

Where the italicized text only appears for badges that may be received multiple times.

A change to the badges page was deployed last week that takes care of the phrasing here. This one took slightly over 6-8 weeks.
