I was reading the close dialog on a question that I had already voted to close. I put my cursor over the vote count and saw in the title attribute text: "these many votes already exist". Shouldn't this be "this many votes..."?

    Depends on whether you want to put additional emphasis on these particular votes, I believe. Seriously, you're most probably right. Commented Dec 3, 2013 at 23:11

    n user(s) already cast votes using this close reason. The original tooltip is too vague and undescriptive.

  • @Robert, on the other hand there is a large blue 3 right behind that tooltip. Commented Dec 3, 2013 at 23:30

No idea when this changed, but as of April 2016 that tooltip reads 'number of votes already cast', which feels like a slightly more grammatical description.

I feel it could probably still be improved a bit, but the current status is fine.
