Rebrand BYOND by registering a webplayer-centric version of BYOND.com (byond.io perhaps?) where the hubs are for webplayer only and no need to download or register an account (automatic guest) so that new visitors can try out a game with no roadblocks quickly. They don't even need to know byond.com exists they can find out later.
But you would have to make the webplayer "just work" and be presented how modern html5 webplayers are presented (get rid of the Account UI on the webplayer and other nasty looking elements (Playwire, no sound by default))
2 step process to resurrect the byond platform. You do a lot of engine updates but it's the platform that's the problem. The engine is good enough. Most of the engine updates you do now are fringe obscure dev-stuff that players will never see or benefit from.
