Please advise me if this is better suited towards the main site. I posted the question here considering that it is about an ELU feature.

My question relates to the Editor Statistics above.

My area of concern is the phrase

-user- had 47 edit suggestions approved

To me, the sentence sounds very "terminated". What I mean by that is it makes it seem like the user has since deleted their account and I feel that the Editor Stats are providing a summary instead of an up-to-date statistic/record.

The below phrase seems a much better fit:

-user- has had 47 edit suggestions approved

This is also taking into consideration the fact that the Reviewer Stats use "has":

Is there a reason why "has" isn't, or shouldn't be, used?

    It's only marginal, but you're right that 'has had' is more natural. But this should be raised at Meta Stack Exchange. May 14, 2015 at 12:29

    I might as well point out that meta posts tagged bug or feature-request, no matter what meta site they are on, are all aggregated into the same tracker that the SE developers look at. May 25, 2015 at 23:41
