I hope/suspect that the actual text is only stored in one or two places, but nevertheless the "title" of our site appears in a lot of places other than the logo itself. I'd like to see the "internal" name changed to be more consistent and less confusing.
I don't care if it says
Seasoned Advice or
Seasoned Advice - Stack Exchange. I wouldn't even really mind if it said
Cooking - Stack Exchange (although one of the former two would be highly preferable). But I'd really like to get the word "Food" out of there as quickly as possible. After all, our subdomain is cooking.stackexchange.com and not food.stackexchange.com for a reason.
This may sound nitpicky to some team members, but unfortunately, some visitors are still not grokking the purpose of the site, and I think it doesn't help that the phrase "Food and Cooking" is plastered all over the place. In particular I'm concerned about:
The actual page title that shows up in the browser's title bar. I actually experienced this at some other, completely different site the other day (really wish I could remember which one), where the logo and contact information were inconsistent with the page title. I was always slightly bothered by the inconsistency here, but seeing it happen on a totally different site that I was not already familiar with made me realize just how disconcerting it really is to a newbie. I kept thinking "What's going on here, what site am I actually on?"
The FAQ. Since this is the first place people are going to go if they have questions about the site itself, we are liable to confuse them even more by referring to a name that they haven't seen before.
The text under the
How to Asksidebar when asking a new question, which says: Is your question about food or cooking? Obviously we're not going to put "Seasoned Advice" in there, but the word "Food" is only going to mislead people into asking the wrong questions. This should simply say, Is your question about cooking? If some people are unhappy with this (i.e. due to thinking of cooking as being separate from baking and so on) then cooking or food preparation would be a better catch-all phrase.
Finally, the meta sidebar says Is your question about the Food and Cooking Meta - Stack Exchange community or website? This, again, should probably refer to the name Seasoned Advice instead (again - if the team is concerned about branding, I don't think any of us will mind if it says Seasoned Advice - Stack Exchange, but please not Food and Cooking - Stack Exchange).
Can we get these changed in the very near future? And if not, can we be given reasons why they would need to stay as they are?
