  if ($_user_has_voted) {
	if ($_rating == 1) {
	  $atts['likes'] = __("You like this.", "gd-rating-system");
    } else {
      $_rating_mod = $_rating - 1;

      $atts['likes'] = sprintf(_n("You and %s other like this.", "You and %s others like this.", $_rating_mod, "gd-rating-system"), $_rating_mod);
  } else {
    $atts['likes'] = sprintf(_n("%s person likes this.", "%s people like this.", $_rating, "gd-rating-system"), $_rating);
