On the very top left corner of the website we have the stack exchange logo, which looks like this:
Clicking on it gives you a pop up asking if you want to visit the stack exchange home page. Under the menu bar we have a horizontal header that says "Sports"/"Sports Meta" with nothing else on it. Clicking on only the text takes you to the homepage of the Sports SE/its meta respectively. I was wondering if we have the ability to remove the SE logo on the top and replace it with the Sports/Sports Meta row. Or is this a restriction of being a beta site? This is something I've wondered for many years now and don't remember ever asking about it.
I've always found the header awkward and a waste of real estate. Removing it allows 1 more question on the homepage and more text on the questions, which provides marginal efficiency having more info on the screen. Also do we really need an SE button in the site? I'd think the SE system wants it there, not Sports SE itself. I guess I'm too used to clicking the top left button to get back to the homepage on stackoverflow without even reading it, that I hit the top left button on Sports SE too, almost every time I visit the site and have a mental facepalm realizing I've done it yet another time years into using it.
What do you guys think?
