Not really a bug. This forum is often called “Ask Replit” as that’s the order the url is, ask.replit.

Well, the url .replit.com is the subdomain, and ask is to specify which one. You don’t call Replit Docs Docs Replit just because the url is docs.replit.com. Same for Replit Blog (not Blog Replit).

One could argue that “Ask Replit” is better because “ask” is a verb and “Replit Ask” suggests that it is a noun.
In your given examples, the other word is instead a noun, so it is indeed clearer to put it last.

Yes but Docs is not a verb. Ask is, suggesting an imperative “Ask us!” Just as NuclearPasta0 is saying:


Although:

The forum kinda is a noun, but Ask Replit is more of a call-to-action.

This could also be interpreted as “Go ask Replit”, further indicating the command form of it

Yes, the dual meaning. I was thinking that too.
