There are two Logout options on the front page: one very close to the link taking you to your profile and one very close to the "go" button for the search field. Am I the only one here who often log myself out instead when wishing going to my profile or do a seach? This specially often happens when using my ipad. Is there any special for having two logout options sitting so close to two often used functions? May I suggest removing these two logout options and replace it with only one far away from other functions?

Just to add a related suggestion on behalf of every BGG user with fat fingers/poor aim, could the "Vote to Approve" button in Geekmod be moved further away from the "Vote to Approve and Recommend" button as well?

I never click my name next to logout. You can do the same thing by clicking "My Geek" to the right.

To be honest I never even noticed the logout button above the search box. I've never had a problem clicking it by accident, I suppose because I watch the mouse pointer and click when it's a caret, rather than an arrow or hand.

I find it to be more of an issue with a touch screen than a conventional mouse.

Yeah, I could see that. On my iPad/iPhone I usually zoom a bit before I try to click something in a dense area.

I have fat fingered a log out on more than one occasion on my IPhone while checking the subscription link.

I've only logged myself out by mistake on my phone a handful of times when trying to tap "Next" but it is a pain when it happens.

Maybe move it down by the Tanga link or way down at the bottom.

Also suggested here:

Is there any chance (or way) to relocated the "Log Out" button?
Log Out link under username on top left menu
Move "Logout" link away from "Go" button on search bar

It was moved in the redesign, but that has been put on hold for now.
