When trying to navigate to Software Engineering Stack Exchange, I frequently find myself typing https://se.stackexchange.com into my browser instead of https://softwareengineering.stackexchange.com.

Would it be reasonable to ask for a redirect from https://se.stackexchange.com to https://softwareengineering.stackexchange.com? Or is it just me?

(disclaimer: I happen to work for Stack, but I'm asking this as a user)

    I put a status-review on this. It seems like a good idea, but I honestly don't know if there are rules or guidelines for subdomains, or if there is a potential SE site that may also claim the "se" subdomain. It seems worthy of consideration and would let people use a full URL (rather than a shortener) in text-constrained environments. – Thomas Owens Jul 13 at 19:12

    Definitely worth considering :) I've added this to our list to address and will have updates here when there's more. – Jon Chan Aug 5 at 20:26
