What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

This has kind of been tried before, but not quite.

I suggest that the Stack Exchange link in the global inbox (AKA MultiCollider) be shoved to the right. I've mis-clicked like 30 times and have ended up on stackexchange.com many times. Something similar will do fine.

Take a look at my mockup. It's worth more than a thousand words.

Why would moving it prevent misclicks? –  aaronasterling Jan 22 '11 at 21:15

I have absolutely no problem with the current layout. What do you keep clicking on? –  jrtc27 Dec 23 '12 at 16:21
