I like the idea of flicking a “check-in” (to game) switch as a sub-menu of the “my account” menu on top RHS.
I also quite-like the auto check-out after a pre-defined period of time … There’s a few of us that get to log-in to E:D, but shortly thereafter have to go “extended AFK” to tend to ankle-biters and/or better-halves, staying logged into E:D.
Oi! That's Baron von Schnellenstein to you, mate. No, it doesn't matter that I'm an Imperial Prince!
