Description Paul Pogonyshev 2006-12-09 23:23:59 UTC
Current keyboard shortcut for logging out is Alt-O.  It is very close to Alt-P
(preview changes) and easy to hit by mistake.  What is more important, how often
do you need to log out?  You can use your mouse in those rare cases.

Please remove the shortcut: it is very rarely used and accidental activation
causes major inconveniences.

Fixed in r18248.  Note that the change won't take effect for now on any wikis
that have customized Monobook.js.  You can institute it for yourself by adding
the following line to [[Special:Myprofile/monobook.js]]:

ta['pt-logout'][0] = '';
