I see a spelling mistake in Stack Exchange network profile page accounts tab's tool tip. The "across" is displaying "accross" in the accounts tab.

But in reputation and activity tab the tool tip is correct. Screen shot for reference.

Across not Accross

  • Just in case somebody ends up confused for some reason (like me): You'll have to hover the cursor at those tabs to see that toast. The cursor is not visible in the screenshot. Hovering on accounts tab would show you the issue.

  • @Firelord: Usually the cursors wont visible when we take print screen option. Now I manually added those cursors. It is fine?

What? It's simply the less traditional two-'c' spelling of across. It comes from our uniccorn ancestors.

Anyway, about that. Turns out, it wasn't even the only place in our code with that spelling (although, the only user-facing instance). It's fixed now. Thanks for reporting it.

  • It's simply the less traditional two-'c' spelling of across. If so, then why the "accross" is not same on across the tool tips.
