Currently the full name of our twitter account is:

Brix Stack Exchange

Whilst saving two characters in the account name is possibly valuable understandable when someone else already has the preferred account, there's no need for the "x" to propagate into the full name - please can it be be changed to:

Bricks SE

And then include the site name in the account Bio?

    I'd support this if I had any idea what our site's actual name was or will be.

    @JoeWreschnig Heh, I did think about waiting, but the Brix thing just makes me sad. Nov 18, 2011 at 1:05
  • Why not Bricks.SE?

  • No real reason, other than Stack Exchange is more obvious than SE - I'm really only after the profile name being tweaked, although I saw music.se seems to have changed the account name too. To be honest so long as we lose the x from the profile I'll be happy ;) Nov 18, 2011 at 18:34
  • FWIW: the account is StackBrix not to save two characters, but because stackbricks was already taken

  • @shog9 fair enough, as I said this was about the profile full name. Nov 20, 2011 at 11:41

Sorry, this won't work. ):

Twitter enforces a 20 character length limit on the description field. "LEGO® Answers Stack Exchange" is 28.

The Name field has been changed to "Bricks SE"

The Bio field has been changed to "LEGO® Answers - Stack Exchange is a Q&A site for LEGO® and building block enthusiasts."

@StackBrix on Twitter

  • Hmm, well either "LEGO® Answers SE" or please just lose the x from the name (which was the original request) so it's "Bricks Stack Exchange"? Jan 10, 2012 at 16:48
  • Apparently I still couldn't count :S Many thanks Rebecca. Jan 10, 2012 at 17:48

StackBrix sounds cheap and unoriginal.

Could we not use a word divider (delimiter) to divide the words Stack and Bricks?

  • Stack-Bricks
  • Stack.Bricks
  • Stack:Bricks

It appears Twitter usernames are letters, numbers, and underscores only so the only other option would be:

  • Stack_Bricks

    Actually, since that account is inactive and obscure, it should be possible to contact Twitter to claim that username. Dec 12, 2011 at 16:14
