Found this out when trying to recite the alphabet in messages.

When you hit the rate limit in chat, and there is 1 seconds left, it says the incorrect form. It shouldn't be plural.

Example:

Can this be fixed please?

Seriously, this is slightly irritating. I am not just posting this to point out how annoying plurals are.

    Another way to fix this would be to increase the minimum timeout to 2 seconds. ;) – Adam Lear May 7 '16 at 14:44
  • @AdamLear that... would work but isn't exactly what I had in mind. :P – Riker May 7 '16 at 15:01

    @ArtOfCode ahaha! That is what my giant strikethrough shield is for! deflects and nullifies – Riker May 7 '16 at 15:27
  • You forgot to quote the 'bug' in the title, so your shield is weakened! ArtOfCode uses Bludgeon! It's super effective! – ArtOfCode May 7 '16 at 15:28
  • @ArtOfCode Riker uses "Hey, Jeff Atwood is behind you with a bigger S!"! It's super effective. Then ArtOfCode is hit in the head with a bigger S, actually from Jeff. – Riker May 7 '16 at 15:32

  • Woot. I can swear I've seen this bug report at least twice before . . . – M.A.R. May 7 '16 at 18:06

    @Ph I searched around. Either it isn't tagged plurals, or it doesn't exist. – Riker May 7 '16 at 21:35
  • @RikerW plurals -> misplaced-giant-s – cat May 9 '16 at 13:06

Chat rate limit messages are now appropriately pluralized.
