This has happened before, and it's happened again, all because Cognitive Sciences recently was renamed Psychology & Neuroscience, with a change to the URL.

The first thing that needs to be fixed is the name should be changed, as it uses has the old name.

The second problem, due to the URL changing from cogsci.stackexchange.com to psychology.stackexchange.com is that the icons are broken.

These are the right URLs:

https://cdn.sstatic.net/Sites/psychology/img/apple-touch-icon.png

https://cdn.sstatic.net/Sites/psychologymeta/img/apple-touch-icon.png


These problems affect both the Psychology & Neuroscience main and meta site listings. And it's not just one page either: the problems are seen in the dropdown, on the main list, and on the compose query page.

It's currently also affecting Writers Writing, which has been renamed more than a year ago.

It also currently affects Code Golf

The issues will be quick hacked (fixed if you wish) running the following SQL update statement on the Data.StackExchange database by someone with full database access.

That sites table does get/should be populated now and then (on changes) from a different source so maybe it is wiser to fix that instead.

The script fixes Writing, CogSci and CodeGolf

I have tested below script here

Use [Data.StackExchange]

-- writing
update Sites 
set BadgeIconUrl = 'https://cdn.sstatic.net/Sites/writing/img/apple-touch-icon.png'
  , ImageUrl = 'https://cdn.sstatic.net/Sites/writing/img/logo.png'
  , IconUrl = 'https://cdn.sstatic.net/Sites/writing/img/icon-16.png'
  , Longname = 'Writing'
where Id = 84 

-- writing Meta
update Sites 
set BadgeIconUrl = 'https://cdn.sstatic.net/Sites/writingmeta/img/apple-touch-icon.png'
  , ImageUrl = 'https://cdn.sstatic.net/Sites/writingmeta/img/logo.png'
  , IconUrl = 'https://cdn.sstatic.net/Sites/writingmeta/img/icon-16.png'
  , Longname = 'Writing Meta'
where Id = 85


-- CosSci
update Sites 
set BadgeIconUrl = 'https://cdn.sstatic.net/Sites/psychology/img/apple-touch-icon.png'
  , ImageUrl = 'https://cdn.sstatic.net/Sites/psychology/img/logo.png'
  , IconUrl = 'https://cdn.sstatic.net/Sites/psychology/img/icon-16.png'
  , Longname = 'Psychology & Neuroscience'
where Id = 146 

-- CogSci Meta
update Sites 
set BadgeIconUrl = 'https://cdn.sstatic.net/Sites/psychologymeta/img/apple-touch-icon.png'
  , ImageUrl = 'https://cdn.sstatic.net/Sites/psychologymeta/img/logo.png'
  , IconUrl = 'https://cdn.sstatic.net/Sites/psychologymeta/img/icon-16.png'
  , Longname = 'Psychology & Neuroscience Meta'
where Id = 147

-- CodeGolf
update Sites 
set  Longname =  'Code Golf and Coding Challenges'
where Id = 92

For reference here is what the icons will look like:

This has been updated and should now be showing the correct names and icons for:

  • Writing
  • Writing Meta
  • Psychology & Neuroscience
  • Psychology & Neuroscience Meta
  • Code Golf and Coding Challenges
  • Code Golf and Coding Challenges Meta

  • Were you able to fix this so it will not "break" with name changes in the future or was that not possible in the end? – rene May 7 at 15:20
  • @rene no I didn’t implement a permanent fix…yet. – Taryn May 7 at 15:22
  • Bummer ... we'll keep on eye on it then. Thanks for the effort! Appreciated! – rene May 7 at 15:23
