Whilst you can logout from the forum via the web site at any time, there is no requirement to do so. You can just close your browser with the X and you will be logged in again when you come to the site.

Your password is NOT held anywhere on the forum for security reasons. When you login on the web site which is on a different server your forum access data is encrypted and held in a cookie on your PC and it is this data which logs you into the forum.

If everyone really wants a "Logout" button at the top, then it can be added.

You have to do it via the main site. It will log you in and out of both old and new forums

If you think nobody cares, try missing a couple of payments.

I never used it before but I noticed it was missing.

Sounds like it is not required, so if it ain't broke..........
