I look at the website on my phone a lot and I've lost track of the number of times I've accidentally clicked "Logout" when trying to click on the search bar. shake

I'm not sure if anyone else has this problem but I thought I would bring it up and ask. Could we perhaps move it somewhere else? I'm not sure where (perhaps people might have some ideas) but I'd really appreciate if it wasn't right above that search box.

I'm a quitter. I come from a long line of quitters. It's amazing I'm here at all.

It'd be convenient in the upper left somewhere, say, right next to or below my user name. whistle

I don't think there's any place they can put it that wouldn't cause a problem on a cell phone.

Left hand side, between the BGG logo and "Recently Viewed", or on the line it currently is, between "Video Games" and "Events", since an important part is moving it away from the "Go" button.

Can you zoom on the phone? Problem solved.

Seriously, I have trouble clicking the spaces to enter my password and posting GG to G4GG accurately on my iPad. A quick two finger zoom fixes both handily.

How do people NOT zoom while using a phone? Crazy eyesight that one has.

How do you people NOT decide that the tiny box is the wrong tool for extended usage ...

At least this isn't a "jumpy" site. I'm having more and more problems with over-produced sites that won't sit still for me. I feel like I'm trying to click a link on a boat in the middle of the ocean.

An example of a male Post-American Croach (Periplanta oithicus), in the traditional garb of his people. His afro and false beard mark him as a priest of Boss Rob.

As someone with keratoconus who's also growing increasingly nearsighted, I usually find it far more comfortable to bring a phone into my focal range, instead of craning my head over the keyboard and squinting at the screen of my laptop.
I've come to really appreciate websites that still allow zooming, I've seen too many websites become basically unusable "mobile sites" that cannot be opted out of, even with browser controls.
