I've been wondering, why is the icon next to the login/log out button of this forum a skull and bones?
Is it a warning?

"Here be dragons!"

I'm not complaining, I like it. Just asking because I'm inquisitive.

As far as I know it has something to do with some in-house joke long before there were even beta testers, as well as "George" Chalk it off to nostalgia. I like that for the same reason.

Haha :mrgreen:

Actually, all icons in the new forum skin comes from the software. When it was time to choose an icon for "log out", we thought the icon used to delete content in current frame and layer would suit to log out.

The icon should be différent when you want to log in (and I just realize it's not). We will change this (we don't want to afraid new comers ! )

No need to. In fact it makes me feel quite adventurous when I'm logging in.
