    Haha you know the answer to this is that they used to just strip off the last letter of the word to make it "singular" and they recently switched to just using two different words. You just know it!!! – animuson Jul 30 '13 at 5:46
  • Looks like the code that removes the plural "s" got a bit over-enthusiastic. – Cody Gray Jul 30 '13 at 5:46

Thanks for pointing this out. It'll be fixed in build rev 2013.7.30.1289 (meta) / 2013.7.30.902 (sites).

As it happens some views got smart over time (thanks to fixing pluralization bugs in the past I guess..) and include own pluralization logic. This particular one had a one liner in a helper somewhere similar to count == 1 ? str.Substring(0, str.Length - 1) : str. Code like this is becoming obsolete as we're moving views to our localization API, and is easily missed when batch replacing hard coded strings. So the problem was that pluralization was performed twice, once via the API and then in the view.

I guess we're now paying the price for fixing pluralization in the past and Jeff was right all along!

But anyway, watch out for those, winter is coming...

    Is that URL to moonspeak intentional? There are no references to "moonspeak" on that page! – Matt Jul 30 '13 at 9:51
