    Am I the only one who on occasions fat-fingers (on the iPad) when desiring to tap on "Alerts" and ends up inadvertedly logging out of MP? And since my userid is nice and long and m password super secure, logging back in is actually rather painful.

    Any chance these two very different menu options could be separated a bit more?

    This is something we reviewed and have tabled for now in the Suggestion/Feedback master list. We do have something upcoming that will address the problem you are having, though it won't involve moving/changing the navigation on the site. :) Thanks.

    A confirmation dialog ("Are you sure you want to log out?") might work as well. Anything that keeps me from accidentally leaving :)

    You shouldn't run into accidentally clicking these now. There is now a confirmation. :)

    And wouldn't you know it, before reading your update, I just accidentally fat-fingered the alerts link on my iPad and hit the Logout link... And immediately screamed "Noooooooo!" (bad idea at nearly 11pm in a hotel), just to then see the dialog pop up.

    Thanks!

    we hope to have the iPad app very soon to make that experience a bit better. Glad you were able to stop logging out!
