Not sure if this is the right spot but it seemed to be the best fit.

As website optimization is my career I can't help but think the "Logout" button on the top left of the navigation leads to many people unintentionally logging out. This position is typically for a "Home" button. I've, on many occasions, sub consciously navigated and pushed "Logout" thinking I would go to the main forums. Not a huge deal but I figured it wouldn't hurt to point it out.

Thanks for your feedback.

I did not consciously click "Logout" thinking it meant "Home", it just comes as a natural reaction to click on that area when navigating a website. 99% of websites I've seen use that real estate for a home button(cnn.com, pbs.com, linkedin.com, etc, etc).

This was simply an observation I was pointing out. If other don't agree, no big deal.

When you log in check the box which says 'log me on automatically each visit'.
