Why hide the logout?


I seem to have trouble finding the LOGOUT at this site..
And, IRONY!, I go to post this, and there it appears beside my
name. Not being critical, really, but I don't understand why
the LOGOUT is so hard to find here.

Please forgive me, if I am the only person with this problem.
I can just go to POST A NEW THREAD, to logout, I guess.

I think you'll find that the logout is not a button, but the words 'Logout' when you go to the main page. Of course, you'll have to be logged in for it to work (I seem to have an intermittent problem in that I keep getting logged out for no reason).

Smile This is THYMOX DAY, eh?

Hello again to Cornwall..
Two posts and two Thymox replies.

Well, actually finding the words is a bit hard on some places..
But, like I said, it was just an observation.
I get logged out too, because I have a small cache that
automatically dumps cookies...yet sometimes I can come back
here and it recognizes me anyway. I don't know....

More importantly, I have just responded to your note...AT
DISTRIBUTIONS? It shocked me, admittedly...AT FIRST,
I may have over-reacted, but some of that was thinking just
how I did something like any newbie would do, so I left it with
that sound.....

Thymox day? No, just keep LQ in the background whilst I look for other stuff. Right now I'm supposed to be looking for stuff on the toxicology of paracetamol, and it's not going to well. Oh well.

I get automatically logged out after about 15 minutes of inactivity. I also can get automatically logged out while I'm working on posting a reply if I take too long. Is that normal?

If you don't use cookies you will not stay logged in.

I have cookies enabled, but it still automatically logs me out.

Well, at least I wasn't the only one who noticed the logout
button was a bit less obvious.
And it will probably keep coming up...
UNTIL you put some GIANT "login" and "logout" on every page.
Us older folks don't have young eyes, sometimes..

Now we politically correct people want to make this site
ACCESSIBLE to all challenged folks, right?
Not speaking for myself, of course.
Me, I'm in no minority...I'm linux -challenged and I think most
folks are!
