I would like to list remaining issues here below that need attention after our name change. I have added a new one open one below:

  1. The Site description now reads:

Q&A for practitioners, researchers, and students in cognitive science, psychology, neuroscience, and psychiatry

In my opinion, this should be changed to

Q&A for practitioners, researchers, and students in psychology & neuroscience, including the cognitive sciences and psychiatry.

Action: I was hoping @StevenJeuris can help out how to tackle this, if need be.
Status: pending

  1. The new name is not reflected on Area 51.

Action: Update the name.
Status: Who do we contact about this?

  1. New mod. Artem hasn't been on the site since November and I think this site needs a dedicated person that likes to volunteer to actively support new users, vote heavily (up votes, and at least as important, down voting), and actively support the above issues :)

More issues here are more than welcomed. I can't turn this into a community wiki, but please comment below or grab me in chat and we'll fit it in.

Completed stuff, but please review if need be:

  1. Site name is not updated in the Android app
    Action: AliceD notified @AdamLear on this.
    Status: Fixed by @AdamLear from the the SE mod team
    Credits: @Ooker :)
  2. Our new close-vote reason reads

This question is not framed within the cognitive sciences. It is based on assumptions which are not made explicit, are not well-motivated (e.g., referenced), or are not held to be true within the cognitive sciences. For more information, see Why was my question closed as “not framed in cognitive sciences”?

Action: Should we re-phrase this in terms of our new site name? If yes, I was hoping @StevenJeuris can help out how to tackle this, as this new vote reason was managed by him afaik.
Status: Fixed (by StevenJeuris? How did you do that so quickly?!)

  1. The Neurobiology tag needed to be slaved to the Neuroscience tag, given that Neurosci is in our site name.
    Action: Swap Neuroscience tag to be the master and Neurobiology to be the slave.
    Status: completed
  2. The tag description (For questions about the biology of the nervous system) needed editing to reduce the Biology emphasis.
    Action: I edited the tag info to emphasize Neurobiology and de-emphasize the Biology part. Check it out here.
    Status: completed
  • Hey - wait -- who fixed the close-vote reason? @StevenJeuris -- How did you do that?

    I did not. :) Must have been some other mod, or the nice people of SE. :) I literally just heard about this awesome news!

  • I updated the on-topic description. Is this the one you were referring to @AliceD?

  • Oh the tour needs updating. I think we need to ping Ana or someone else for that one.

    I double checked the close reason and noticed no change? I started a meta post to poll for new suggestions.
