I've been meaning to post something about this for months, but after hitting this problem twice in one night now, it's starting to bug the hell out of me.
On the main homepage, there is a nice "New Posts" link that I use every time I come here to read the new stuff. However, right below it, within half a dozen pixels, is a "Log Out" link. If you accidentally click on that "Log Out" link for some reason, and then log in again, you lose your "New Post" flag.
Is there any way we could get that "Log Out" link moved somewhere else? Maybe right under the user name, so it's separated from the "New Posts" link by the "Last Visited" info, at the very least? Or move it somewhere across on the far side of the page, maybe?
