In the homepage of Data SE, I see that some sites have an extra "SE" in the name, while the rest don't have. Is this an intention or just a kind of bug? image description image description image description

At first I thought that this is a duplicate of “ - Stack Exchange” suffix no longer displayed in page title on many secondary sites, but as you can see not every beta sites have the suffix.

    If I had to guess, since all of those sites are in Beta, it's simply that whoever created the proposal called it that... and the name stuck. When you create a proposal in Area 51, you pick the name of the site. If it never gets changed, then it stays. – Catija Aug 31 '15 at 14:51

It's just an issue with tidying up the metadata, yeah (so a bug). When I have time I'm going to determine what the easiest way is to keep the site names consistent and in sync so it's no longer a problem in the future.

The expected behaviour is for "Stack Exchange" to be removed from all of them, with the obvious exception of this site, Meta Stack Exchange.

  • erm, don't you answer in that question as well? – Ooker Aug 31 '15 at 18:33

    Well, here I could confirm that the current behaviour is a bug, since you weren't 100% sure why this was happening. The other report was unquestionably a bug, so I'll wait to actually fix it to answer there. – Tim Stone Aug 31 '15 at 18:35
