If this has been suggested before I apologise. For me the newsletter system in OC has always been a bit weak. I would like to see the ability for guests and subscribers to subscribe/unsubscribe from the newsletter in a module, not just the account and/or checkout links. Yes you can add this feature with an extension but it would be great if it was a core feature. There would need be be an algorithm that checks the subscribers/customers account status and prevents double sending but this small change would make the newsletter system much more powerful and usable.

Actually, scrap that. There are plenty of extensions to add that feature. :)

No, actually, it's because I forgot to update the post. I expanded the codes yesterday on the Pull Requests. There are a few others, now.
