Vote summary refers to "you" even for another's profile

Votes summary page of my profile


In the votes summary page of my profile it says:

A daily summary of votes you have received for your posts.

This is an accurate description of my vote summary page. However, if I look at someone else's vote summary page, it still says "votes you have received for your posts".

Should this be changed to indicate that the votes are for the person whose profile is being viewed, rather than the person viewing the profile?

Wording

If so, how should this be worded to make it clear?

A daily summary of votes on trichoplax's posts

(tricky as 's won't work on all usernames, and the correct possessive indication probably can't be determined programmatically with arbitrary usernames not all of which are conventional/known names)

How about something like:

A daily summary of votes received on posts by trichoplax

Could this also work as the wording on your own profile, so there doesn't need to be different behaviour depending on whose profile you are viewing? That might work better for someone reading over your shoulder too, if you're showing someone your profile or asking for help.

You're right; that's awkward if you're looking at someone else's profile. I have submitted a pull request to change this wording to:

A daily summary of votes received for posts.

The user name is already shown in the line just above this one, so I don't think we need to repeat it.
