Description

"You have 124 posts, 8 pages, 1 draft, contained within 22 categories and 273 tags."

Should it display the draft of the logged in user or change "You have" to "There are"?

And should the Pending Review appear on the Dashboard?

  • Priority changed from highest omg bbq to low
  • Severity changed from critical to minor
  • Type changed from defect to enhancement

Setting the priority to "highest omg bbq" and the severity "critical" is a pretty quick way to have your ticket ignored ;-)

  • Version set to 2.5

"This site has" or "There are" is probably more correct, but it does seem that the "You are" language is there intentionally, and is evocative of Kathy Sierra's user-centric (rather than product-centric) approach. Promote the user's achievements (with the product), not the product's achievements.

Maybe "You have" is intended to be plural and represents all the authors on the site -- stupid English not having 2nd person plural. "Ya'll have" as a compromise solution? Kidding!

I'm splitting off your question about "Pending review" to a new ticket, because that's a separate issue.
