This question of mine was voted to be closed as a duplicate, and I received a banner at the top asking

Does this answer your question?

Auto-delete orphaned tag synonyms ( answers)

I presume the weird space in "( answers)" is because it's supposed to mention the number of answers that the suggested duplicate has, but in this case the suggested duplicate has 0 answers, which is causing some trouble.

Here's a screenshot of the entire banner: enter image description here

This should be fixed now. The duplicate notice for post owners should correctly show answer counts for all potential duplicate questions.

    Perhaps its worthwile to consider 0 answers as a special case. Seeing the post notice states "that may solve your problem" and "Does this answer your question" which both are unlikely if a question is unanswered. Perhaps we could emphasise more that it has already been asked, instead of emphasising that answers can be found in an unanswered question.
