# Should the HTML title of this CrossValidated site still be "Statistical Analysis"?

Is it intentional that the HTML title for the CrossValidated site is "Statistical Analysis"? Or is it a hold-over from the beta name?

The HTML title is what determines the browser window title and the default bookmark title, which makes things seems a bit out of sync.

EDIT: Just to clarify/expand after seeing mbq's answer, there are three prominent "names" for the site:

1. stats.stackexchange.com: domain name in URL
2. Statistical Analysis: HTML title used in browser title and bookmarks
3. CrossValidated: internal name used in page headers

I understand it's difficult to update a domain name (though not impossible), but I don't see why the HTML title (#2) shouldn't also be changed to "CrossValidated".

• In fact the situation is a bit more complex -- crossvalidated.com is registered and works as a synonym to stats.stackexchange.com; on the other hand Statistical Analysis works as the name on SE-wide pages like stackexchange.com, data explorer, blog, etc...

• And I know what you meant; I just hope that your post may be an impulse to rethink and settle this stuff.

• @mbq, by editing my question, I didn't mean to suggest a misunderstanding in your answer. It's just that your secondary point motivated me to clarify that my question is not about whether CV or SA is a good name.

A few months ago, we went and updated most of the HTML for the named sites. Now, Cross Validated should appear in the title text of the page / in the tab you have the site open in.
