Is it really necessary to have more than one logout link when you are posting a comment or post? I refer to the Posting as: [username] (logout) right above the post textbox. More than once recently I have been aiming for the textbox with the mouse and clicked on the logout link by mistake. (Why anyone would actually want to log out of Metafilter is beyond me, but also fodder for a different post.) Seriously, once a page up at the top is enough, no? Logging out should be a deliberate act.

I agree. I haven't actually had that catastrophe happen (and I agree about the mystery of people wanting to log out), but now that you point it out, it's terrible design.

I presume it's for people who share computers, who might begin to post a comment and then realize, "Oh hey, I'm posting as [username1], I'd better log out first and sign into [username2]." In which case that placement makes sense to me.

Where would you put it?
posted by cjorgensen at 9:05 AM on April 14, 2013


We have it there because we have quite a few people with multiple accounts. It's there as a convenience to them. They can see who they're posting as and then have the exact link they need to change that where they're looking. Posting comments from an account you don't intend to happens quite a bit, and this logout links helps with that.

Having a sock account is fine if you limit use of that account to eg questions or comments that pertain to your work identity (or whatever specific, narrow thing you want to cordon off - eg sex stuff; medical stuff), but you maintain your main account for all your other interactions on the site. The idea is, we expect you'll have one main persona on the site, but a second account for the occasional special-purpose thing is ok.

The link at the top asks you to confirm logout, at least on an iPad. Does it not do that on the posting screen?
posted by disclaimer at 9:23 AM on April 14, 2013


And note this means people have sock puppets specifically for asking questions they really don't want attached to their main account. If they goof and post their "help I have hemmorhoids" question from the wrong account, we can delete it (if they realize and contact us) but then if the same question shows up under the other username, still they have risked revealing who they are.

People use sockpuppets for the exact situation where you really don't want to make a mistake and post from the wrong account.

I would firmly, yet avuncularly suggest you consider putting in some clickytime at the firing range on your scheduled off-hours. We need you all to be in top op-condition at all times. Command never knows when a mission might present itself or who will be assigned to it. Don't be, or post, the weak link.

But everyone should have their own damn accounts on the computer. Unless we're talking about iPads it's trivially easy and free to create a second account on pretty much any OS.
posted by cjorgensen at 9:54 AM on April 14, 2013


Well yeah sure, they all have their own accounts. That's the whole point. Sometimes the other person left their account logged in so you notice that while posting then log them out and back in again as yourself.

Unless you mean windows accounts in which case, why? We never bother when we share a computer (which does happen) and I know other people with only one computer who also don't bother. I'm just not that special that need things set up so carefully that logging in and out of windows is worth it to me.

I use my wife's iPad fairly often. There's no way to set up separate user accounts. I use chrome and she uses safari for gmail. She's not a MeFite, but I can easily see how it could be a problem for couples who are. A reminder of who you are posting as and an easy way to fix it seems to make sense. Maybe if there was a logout confirmation on the link?

Yeah there's no problem generally with sock puppets. The big thing is that you can't pretend they are two different people, you can't use them to get around the posting limits and we'd prefer if people were somewhat restrained with their joking so that people don't get confused and/or irritated. That said, it's one of those things where almost all the time it's not a problem. We mention second accounts in the FAQ.

A possible change would be to make the logout link work the same as your username does now. It takes you to your user page, and if it said this instead:

Joe User (user page)

with the words in parentheses being a link and your username just plain text, it would suggest that the link leads to a page where you can log out. And if you clicked it accidentally, you would be able to just click the back button to return to the page. (I assume this works with all modern browsers. Am I right?)

I don't personally mind there being a logout link there, though. I'd use Ctrl+Home to find the logout link at the top if this one were removed, when I might need to log out. That's just one keypress, so no big deal.

The problem I have with this UI implementation is that it's inconveniencing one set of users to avoid inconveniencing another set of users. So look at the two groups and decide who has the better case. Group one says it's too easy to hit by accident where placed. Group two says they need to be able to switch back and forth between accounts.

In my opinion the first group has the stronger claim (by far). I appreciate the fact that metafilter is trying to make things easier for a segment of it's user base, but it's essentially coming up with a technological solution to what amount to a management problem.

And you can't make the case you don't need separate computer accounts while maintaining it's too easy to post from the wrong metafilter account because you're sharing a computer with someone. This is the exact reason you need your own account.

I'm not going to waste time explaining why every person needs their own account. To me it's like trying to explain why every single inhabitant of a house needs their own key.

I mainly have accidental logouts using the non-mobile site on my mobile (phone) device when I try to click on metatalk and miss. I don't have internet at home so the phone's my main access since I cannot visit when at work.

When I used to have a less sucky job I could use my computer there on lunch breaks, but I was always careful to log out whenever I exited the site. So, yes, there are people who don't have the good fortune to be able to stay logged in.

I'm reluctant to admit I've had this problem, as if it is possible to add the confirm dialog then I don't want to sour the deal by saying so. Still, yes, it is an issue that is easily fixable.

I will say my phone gives me a non-trivial amount of problems in which there is some dissuasion from actively avoiding a misadventure with that logout in certain instances.

Also, since we have some serious disagreements about social/political issues, I would appear to be constantly arguing with myself.

My wife and I share most documents and all our music, pictures, movies and downloads on our desktop comp. We only need one user account. Setting up a second one would be impractical.

Things shared across user accounts can go in a public folder. Windows 7 has a "libraries" feature whose default configuration gives you a unified view of your own account's stuff and whatever is in the corresponding public folder, which makes this arrangement quite easy.

In any case, if you're running Windows it's a really good idea to set up a second user account for admin tasks (e.g. installing and removing software) even if you're sharing your day-to-day user account with somebody else; that way the day-to-day account can be changed from a computer administrator to a standard user, which eliminates a whole class of security threats.

This kind of setup has been possible and beneficial since Windows NT, and particularly easy to live with since Windows 7.

I brought this up initially out of annoyance at having been twice bitten.

Logout does the same thing for me, either place I click it. BANG, you're dead. I don't get any verification dialog in either Firefox 20 or Chrome. It sounded to me like someone upthread was getting that? pb?

I would also perhaps vote to move the logout link at the top of the screen, since I have also accidentally frobbed it when trying to hit the MeMail link.

I realize that this complaint, while perhaps making me seem unduly klutzy, seems minor and perhaps picayune, and I do have a little essential tremor in my mousing hand, I still feel that the design here is worthy of attention. We are all getting older, and what was great when the people who wrote the code were in their late 20's seems less accessible as I approach 60.

I think that this is the discussion we might really want to start feeling our way into. Thoughts?

If all the things in the house are shared, why make individual access to them unnecessarily complicated?

In our case, my wife and I have different interests. She needs to have a set of social media, facebook accounts and so on separate from mine. Also, having different email addresses and calendars is really convenient---we can message each other easily, for instance. Our domain is our "home", but we each have different spaces, for mail, etc... to store our stuff.

You might argue that still doesn't mean that we need unique computer accounts. You would be right in principle, but it would mean that we were constantly logging out and logging back in to make sure that we were using the proper identity. This is what having differing accounts does: all of my id's, mail, website fora, messaging are tied to my account, all of hers, tied to hers. We can set the desktop backgrounds too so that it's obvious whose account is logged in at any particular time.

So, it's actually much less complicated to have a single login do all of that switching, than try to do it on the fly.

Oops. Sorry. Windows account. Not mefi account. My wife does read mefi on occasion, but never comments or posts.

We're still using Vista. I haven't upgraded out of laziness.

We have separate social media and email accounts, and do most of our surfing on websites, rather than through desktop programs. We log in and out under our own identities, which takes seconds, since id's/passwords are stored. As far as I know, we have never mistakenly posted or emailed from one account or another. (It would be hard to mistake each other's personalized screens in most website-based services like gmail, anyway.) We share a gmail family calendar across all our devices.

Perhaps this is more of a personal use thing. If we want to im or sms someone while at home, we use our phones.

We used to keep separate logins. It wasn't worth the effort. We wound up only ever using one id.

I treat the multiple accounts on Metafilter the same I do with multiple accounts with Google*. I use different browsers for each one.

But I agree with whomever suggested that a nag screen (Are you sure you want to log out?) would be the ideal solution to this ever so important problem.

* I know about the Google Lab tool to use multiple accounts with one browser and I sometimes use it.

It sounded to me like someone upthread was getting that? pb?

You currently get a confirmation dialog with the top right logout link on the iPad only in the default theme only. The reason is because taps are less precise than clicks (there's no cursor), and the logout link is close to the Search button. That's not the case in the plain theme, so we don't have the confirmation prompt on that iPad there.
posted by pb (staff) at 7:54 AM on April 15, 2013


Yeah, I accidentally log myself out like this all the time (at least once every few days). It's something to do with how the page loads for me (with a MeFi Mail userscript or something), where I think I'm clicking on my username, but the page catches up with itself and before I know it I've clicked logout.
posted by iamkimiam at 8:45 AM on April 15, 2013


We discussed this today and we're leaning toward removing the logout link next to usernames. We know that'll be an annoyance to people who use that link to switch accounts, but the price will be learning where the logout links are in the header and footer which doesn't seem too bad.

Thank you pb, but I know (and have known) that those links are there. The reason that I'm asking that it please be put back is not that I think there's now no way to log out; it's that the link that has been removed is by far the most convenient link to log out in many situations wherein I often log out, and it's therefore the link I've gotten very used to using in those situations, and therefore the one I naturally go to, and therefore I've several times already been jarred and confused by the lack of it.
posted by Flunkie at 3:46 PM on April 17, 2013


I'm sorry about the confusion. Anytime something you're used to using changes it's jarring, and I understand that. We move slowly here, but we do move. I'm afraid there isn't a great way to implement changes and not have some annoyance along the way.

We made this change because we heard from several people that the particular location of that link was an ongoing problem for them. Because we have two links on every page that do exactly the same thing, we sympathized with that view and decided that we'd help them out. I'm sorry you're now being annoyed, but we're not going to add the link back.

posted by Flunkie at 3:59 PM on April 17, 2013


Flunkie, this might help: if you are at the bottom of a thread and want to go to the top where the remaining logout link is, the quickest way to get there is to hit the Home button on your keyboard. It'll take you straight to the top. Not many folks use the Home/End combo, but it can be very useful for things like that.

The worst thing about designing and building UIs for web sites and applications -- and I say this as someone who does, on a daily basis -- is that you can put terrible, terrible things in front of users, and once they're used to it, some of them will resist change with all their might. People hate change, and one a site like this, asking for a feature to be changed (or to be changed back) often appears easier to them than simply putting in the effort to adjust.

To maintain perspective when I consider potential UI improvements, I try to remember that as a QWERTY typer who types 100wpm, I can (in theory) type even faster than that with DVORAK, but the time to adjust would simply not be worth the effort I'd have to invest. So, if I'm going to change the UI to be "better", I'd best make sure I'm solving an actual problem, a problem that saves more effort than it causes for people to adjust. Keeping in mind, of course, that people often massively over-estimate the amount of effort it will take to adjust.

I won't speculate here on whether this particular change falls on one side or the other, just trying to help put things in perspective.
posted by davejay at 4:13 PM on April 17, 2013


A good example of this was, on a UI guidelines project I was involved in, our submit buttons. We put them along the right side of the page, to separate them from the too-numerous buttons on the left, and people really hated it, complained a lot. So we did user testing, and sure enough, moving them to the right end of the left-side buttons with a divider had a surprisingly large positive impact on usability for users not familiar with the application -- but also a large negative impact on usability for existing users, who kept moving their cursor all the way to the right, finding nothing, and then moving it back to the left once they'd located it. That effect wore off in about five form submits, however, so we made the change...and oh the yelling. Not from the users -- they adjusted quickly -- but from the people using the guidelines to design their own application pages, who didn't want to have to adjust to putting the buttons on the left side in their wireframes!

There's an amazing xkcd comic on how code/UI changes will always displease some subset of users. All I remember is there is something about making an application update makes it 1000x more efficient and some guy writes in to complain that he used to run the app in order to make his laptop overheat until the fan came on, which he used routinely to heat his apartment and how dare the people behind the app kill his room heater functionality. I can't find it, but I seem to recall it being something like that.

In any case, if anyone else wants it back, here's a Greasemonkey script you can use.

I was hoping mathowie had totally made that xkcd up.

Last night I had a dream where I got to meet Peter Dinklage. I told him I was a big (ha!) fan and I'd loved him for like ever. He said, "You're just a 'Games of Thrones' fan," and I said he was wrong, he's all, "What else you like me in?" I answered with "Dancing With the Stars!" and the dream turned into a nightmare, and then I woke up.

I laid there for a while feeling mortified and embarrassed and then..."Wow, that's fucking brilliant. I need to tweet this to Tom Bergeron!"

I couldn't figure out a way to fit this story into a tweet, but if it happens you can credit this post!

Also, if it's already happened it because Peter was right...I am just a Game of Thrones fan.

You should find The Station Agent. It's a paint-by-numbers "misanthrope meets quirky people; finds out that people ain't so bad" little indie film, but he makes it sing.

Home button? WTF?

Well, learn something new every day. This is good. My finger was getting way to tired on these long threads.

Now, about them "F" keys.....

I believe the term is F'n, as in those F'n keys.

I just discovered a new pair of shortcuts on Firefox. Ctrl+PageUp/Down flips tabs forward or backward. And to think I had to discover that by hitting the wrong key by accident.

Someone should really write a guide about useful shortcuts of common browsers for navigating websites and Metafilter in particular. I feel there are some useful things I don't know, but I'm sure a lot of people have been using for ages. Another thing for the old todo-list I guess. (Also: Watch movies with Peter Dinklage. I might have the same dream.)

Besides this off-topic confession, I want to voice my acceptance of removing the logout link as discussed in this thread. It wasn't necessary at all to have one there. Goodbye little link. I sometimes used you because I am weird and want to log off when I'm done commenting for the time. I know where your brothers live.
