now some considerations about the site when the user is already logged-in:
- there's no way to get back to the start page that says "we're an open...".
there's the global updates for the whole p2pu there, which is an interesting
view even for who's already logged in (sorry if there is already a manner to
get back to that page, but I don't know how to access it)

- i wonder if we could make "User - Inbox - Logout" 1 single menu? There
could be a small iphone-ish badge in the user's photo or next to his/her
name + an envelope icon to show he's got new messages. "Logout" would be the
last item listed in the dropdown.

- we really should implement hover instead of just clicking for dropdowns as
well as the arrow i told you about

- another branding opportunity would be to place a small icon/badge or
change the text color of the buttons that say which study group the message
has been posted on

- a quick visual tweak: the "Follow" and "Private message" buttons are using
different fonts from each other

- there's no title on the area on which each persons posts his/her external
links. the margin between the links could be smaller to give impression they
are a list and just not free chunks of text.

- setting a standart size to study groups avatars is really a necessity

guess thats all for now ;)
