    Logout Button

    Its probably just me, but does anyone else accidently click on the logout link when trying to click the 'show new replies to your posts" link? That link is by far my most used way to navigate the site, along with "show unread posts since your last visit" so I click those two buttons a ton everyday, but then there is that sneaky little log out button just sitting there, waiting for me to mess up.



    It would be totally awesome if there was an empty line between the top two links and that log out link. Just one extra
    tag would do it. It would make even more sense to group the logout button and the string that shows how long you have been logged in together on the bottom of that section. Looking at the source code, it would be a very minor change to the code, but would eliminate accidental log outs, which cause additional strain on the server.

    I know its a minor detail, but I'm sure there is atleast one another person out there who is plagued by that little bugger of a logout link..

    Nope, not me.........I'm a competent fuck.

    Here's a suggestion; Logout is one word & the two links you are trying to pick are 6 words long. Aim for the last words in the sentence. Clicking anywhere on the sentence invokes the link. You do not have to click on the arrow.

    I heard Webby is working on a deal with Microsoft so every new computer has pp.o as its homepage.

    Not trying to be a dick, but this is really picky.

    If you have noticed the "Logout" line is 1/3 the length of the other 2 lines.
    So...why don't you just click the other 2 furthur to the right (the green arrow).
    That way you eliminate any chance of hitting the "Logout" link?
