I have done some research and realized this isn't the first time:

Small grammar bug on area51 (1 users instead of 1 user)

So here you go:


It'd be nice if the grammar were correct! :)

    You'd better hide from the 'S' now: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/9662/… – Manishearth Apr 4 '12 at 6:14

  • Did Jeff hand that S over when he left? – Belinda Apr 4 '12 at 8:28

    In all seriousness, I do find correct pluralization to be a sign of attention to detail in software. The argument (or rather religious debate here) is, it's often attention to the wrong details. But, good luck, and may the S be with you. – Tim Post Apr 4 '12 at 8:46
  • @TimPost Do those S's work like boomerangs? Differently, I imagine Stack Exchange needs to buy a new giant S every time it uses one. ;) – kiamlaluno Apr 4 '12 at 13:52

    @TimPost as long as it's an improvement it's not the "wrong" details, fixing something is never wrong and leaving something unfixed is never right, it's just a matter of priorities. – Ben Brocka Apr 4 '12 at 13:52

grumble fine!, but only because to match other places like this we already fixed it grumble


Right now we have the habit of bludgeoning any pluralizsation complainer with a giant S.

This is great, but kind of messy. So I have a counter proposal:

Let anybody that wants to report a pluralization bug, bake a giant sized S shaped cake and get it to the SE team (fresh and complete).

    I should take it from Italy, and USA customs would not let me take it with me. – kiamlaluno Apr 4 '12 at 13:53
