There's a minor typo on the Established User page:

User hover cards allow you to show off your awesome to other users in our network.

Should "awesome" be corrected to awesomeness or some other synonym?

  • Fair enough - changed question title & switched "bug" tag to "discussion"

Since a site for programmers is bound to be filled with pedants who are offended at the slightest little mistake, it would awesome if this was fixed.

A more in-depth article, devoid of said "creative liberty", is available on Meta Stack Overflow's privilege page, and will eventually be rolled out to the other sites.
