Would be nice if players could subscribe to your game while inside of it.

A bare sub page on BYOND.com could work. It could be loaded in a browser control (by the developer) and players would only see the sub information, but one problem is they might not be logged into BYOND.com with the key they're playing as.

I know you guys want people to visit the website as much as possible, but it being easier to subscribe, especially without even leaving the game, would increase the amount of people subscribing.
You could just link them to the website through an in-game browser as it is now?

That's too tacky. You'd have all the ads and banners and would have to scroll both vertical and horizontal and whatever else. If you wanted a small window with only sub information, you couldn't.

That said, I've recently heard that the Flash client wont support the browser control, so this would have to be a physical part of the client most likely.
As if that Flash client is ever going to come out. They need to make it support map controls only (which it supposedly already does), and call it a day. No need to drag the terrible BYOND design philosophies of stat panels and interfaces into the already established Flash communities, we should be the ones adapting to their superior game-like concepts.
