This post says:

This site is now "Code Golf & Coding Challenges"

Indeed, this is what it says in our banner too:


& coding challenges

But our tour page says:

Welcome to Code Golf Stack Exchange

Code Golf Stack Exchange is a question and answer site (…)

And on Meta, the ? menu has:

Back to Code Golf Stack Exchange
Return to the main site

How should we call this site, both on the site itself, and when mentioning it to the outside world, e.g. here and here?

    \$\begingroup\$ The official name is "Code Golf", despite the subtitle. The subtitle is just a part of the header logo. \$\endgroup\$ Jul 1, 2019 at 13:16

    \$\begingroup\$ @EriktheOutgolfer I didn't ask how it is named in the system, but rather how it should be called. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ What issue are you trying to solve here? Code Golf isn't going to be mad based on using the subtitle or not. I call my dad "Mr. Man" and he seems to be fine with that. Disclaimer: My last name is not "Man". \$\endgroup\$

Code Golf

We voted to name our site Code Golf and keep a subtitle in the logo, mostly for clarification purposes. This is what we should do.

The main drawback of referring to the site as Code Golf & Coding Challenges is clear: nobody is ever going to spell it out, so we're once more left with an obscure acronym that is meaningless for outsiders. This was also my first point when I proposed to name the site Code Golf.


The new site name is "Code Golf", and the subtitle is "& coding challenges". You can refer to the site with or without the subtitle – trichoplax 19 mins ago

(referring to it off site should probably include "Stack Exchange" as other golfing sites are available) – trichoplax 14 mins ago
