Below, the "Show X more comments" link has been capitalized, and a pluralization error has been introduced:

"Show 1 more comments"

It wasn't like that before (the grammar, I mean), so can we fix it?

    @Rob Good, glad it's not just me.

  • Easy fix will be to change the wording to: "Show more comments (1)", i.e. having the number of new comment(s) in brackets after the message. Feb 10 at 9:15
  • Anyway, SE started to mark plural bugs as by design without explaining, so I'm afraid you're wasting your time reporting such bugs. (that's the reason I stopped reporting such bugs) Feb 10 at 9:23

  • This seems to be a problem not specific to Stack Exchange. Isn't there a Stack Overflow question we can point the Stack Overflow developers to? Why isn't there a single central place (library, code generation, or similar) that takes care of if it (instead of inline formatting)? Hasn't a solution been developed in the last 12 years?

  • @ShadowWizardisVaccinating this also applies to the "1 users have bookmarked this question" tooltip, for the record.

  • @Ollie it's everywhere, always was, and always will - difference is that judging by the responses we get recently (or don't get, only cold retagging with status declined or by design), they won't bother fixing it anymore. :/ Feb 14 at 12:56
  • @ShadowWizardisVaccinating The new status-planned tag may tell a different story ;)

  • I'd argue... if there's only one additional comment, show it, don't hide till there's 2 or more to hide.

  • @Ollie so maybe it applies only to winter bash. Still, can take 6-8 weeks/months to be done. Mar 24 at 7:29
