Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

No big deal, this has just been bugging me. Whenever I try to log out while viewing my recent activity (the little envelope up top), It always returns a 404. Viewing another page confirms I am logged out.

Correct, you must be logged in to view that page. It is private to you.

It would be better to redirect the user to (for example) the homepage rather than a 404 page if a user logs out while looking at a page which is inaccessible as an anonymous user. – Justin Nov 8 '10 at 4:57
That makes sense. A redirect might be a good idea though. Thanks! – John Nov 8 '10 at 18:59
