Suggestion:  Make the big BattleTech logo link return people to bg.battletech.com (noting that there is already a "Home" link on the menu bar that returns you to the forums homepage).

From a web design perspective, it's a little odd that clicking on the big BattleTech logo at the top does not take you back to https://bg.battletech.com but instead takes you to https://bg.battletech.com/forums because on every other subpage of bg.battletech.com the logo does take you back to https://bg.battletech.com.  That's inconsistent website functionality/behavior and can be confusing for users.

I'd also consider this a potential traffic leak if I were doing web analytics on such a site:  User clicks forums accidentally; user clicks big logo to return; logo didn't take them where they expected; user closes browser window.

This used to be a thing. There used to be a "Site" button. Not sure when it disappeared.

I suppose you could always just strip back the URL...

I brought this issue up a few weeks ago. All I can say is that the powers who can resolve the issue are aware or the issue.
