    Considering there are no plans to localize the site, I don't see why this (and other examples) weren't coded in originally. – Jon Seigel Jan 25 '10 at 13:36

    We should have a single questions where all the problem plurals are listed - a master list to be used in the event that Jeff sees the error of his ways on a programming website, given that programmers are pedantically picky peoples. – Pollyanna Jan 25 '10 at 17:14
  • Thanks for asking this. I gained 20 rep for an answer on the duplicate. – Andrew Grimm Jan 28 '10 at 6:57
  • This is not a duplicate: "viewed 1 times" has been fixed but "1 questions" has not. – Hugo Dec 7 '12 at 9:37
  • @Hugo It has been fixed: i.stack.imgur.com/oCQ0B.png. – Adam Lear Dec 25 '12 at 22:01
  • @AnnaLear: Good stuff, fixed on site-specific profile pages, but still unfixed on the accounts page. For example, this has "1 questions" and "1 answers". – Hugo Dec 25 '12 at 22:07
  • @Hugo That's a completely different page than reported here. :) Come to think of it, it's possible that Accounts page didn't even exist when this bug report was posted. If you feel strongly about it, toss up a new post. Be prepared for the MSO meme. – Adam Lear Dec 25 '12 at 22:12

    Should be "one time". You've added an extra s. Which is ironic, as the question is about plurals. – Kobi Jan 25 '10 at 13:35
