It used to be that to logout I had to click on my icon in top right and then on my name and then logout appeared in the menu list.
Now in 2.6 my name has gone (which is a bit of a nuisance if I have two or more logins to a forum (eg as an admin, as myself and as a test user) and I find that logout has moved to the cog menu (which used to mean preferences) which isn’t really a meaningful icon for what is listed there (which includes another cog icon that does mean preferences - this is a more generic use of the cog icon - settings or preferences)
Logout is not a setting or preference - it is an action. Also Summary, Activity and Drafts are not Settings.
If it is really felt that it is not a good idea to remind the user of his username and it needs to be replaced with an icon, then how about using a user icon (little head and shoulders outline) rather than a cog (which, I insist, most commonly means settings or preferences)
What is the reason for the change and can we have it reversed as not a terribly good idea?
Even better give me a simple logout button only one click away instead of two.
