    Now I know how to log out its less of a problem.. but: how to make it more intuitive? Why not just click your name/ icon and have a fly-up, similar to a windows right click menu, with 'log off' in nice and easy to understand English? Intuitively you know it must be down there somewhere, and clicking randomly is usually the first thing people do if they cant find something. Also, logging out shouldn't really be a 'setting', which I think is what the clogs imply. Just a thought :-)

    I highly suggest a more straightforward way of logging off. I've been constantly logged in for a month before I finally got frustrated enough to google it.

    If seeking a universal icon for logging out... why not a big open door with arrow? almost every society knows what an open door means.

    same....I had to search for this on google. regardless, I am really liking the program itself. I am not going to cry about something that is free... and 10000000 times better than ventrillo and sounds as crystal clear as teamspeak. 1: Google, get link BAM 2: read this post, look at the screenshot and laugh because you looked at that screen 100000 times and never thought to click on that arrow.problem solved. Now, time to google how to prevent this from auto starting with windows. :p

    I have several requests regarding this feature:
    1. Can we have a "Log Out of Discord" button of some kind in the top right menu that is more prominent?
    Having to come here to find out how to log out was really rather... odd.

    2. I'd like a way to "log off" selected servers. I want to choose which servers I'm "online" in. Maybe I want to only be online to MY servers ... or maybe I want to only be online to my favorite game's server, but not both at the same time ... Isn't this possible?

    @Faeryl We can look into it! It'd help us a bunch if you could upvote that over at feedback.discordapp.com. The selected server log off you're looking for sounds like a "appear as online" function, which we are considering implementing sometime down the road.

    This UX is hilariously bad

    This might be the worst possible UI decision I've seen this year.

    I also clicked "Leave server" while trying to log out, but luckily read the confirmation dialog and cancelled. And I had to look this up, even after guessing this could be in the user settings.

    Some comments here are unfairly offensive, but the design is not working.

    EDIT: OK, I found nothing on https://feedback.discordapp.com, so I created a new proposal since developers asked. Upvotes and helpful feedback there:

    @Blaisorblade thanks for upvoting on the feedback page! I'll show it to the team to see if we can take a deeper look at it.

    I can't belive I had to google to find out how to log out.

    Its amazingly bad design.

    Also there is a ton of unused free space in the bar to the left.

    Why the bloody hell isn't it placed there as a button or just text stating log out?

    Judging by the first comment it's been this way since october last year?

    Or even longer?

    I don't even...

    This is the absolute worst! I never would have found it. It's not even labeled, and that icon doesn't draw any attention to itself. 

    Besides, what other UI functionality is hidden behind a button click? I guess I understand not wanting to login unintentionally, but seriously, I could not find the logout button for like 2 months of using the desktop app. I was force closing the thing from task manager. That is not user friendly design. 

     

    You really need to consider changing that.

    i though the sign out button was fine. it's a an arrow pointing out a door like an exit sign; i can't imagine what else it would be. i didn't google it. i do agree that it should put put on the main screen in a corner to the right of the help button or someplace more readily accessible. the gui is a bit large and clunky as well so i'd like an option for a "slim" or "compact" skin, sort of like how google talk was, or pidgin, or like wmp's slim player skin.
