Title: Various Ideas

Status Up Dates
After the hectic experience of running various Role Play sites and hosting several arcs I've come into a very relaxed phase of my roleplaying hobby. Since life gets busy and people want to post for leisure and fun I've been wondering about Status updates. Perhaps using one of the free text slots under profile people could post an update. For example currently seeking light rp or on vacation. It's a good way to keep people informed of your current RP status and availability.

Future & Past Portal
Seeing as Elements of RP is taking place in modern Equestria and My Little RP takes place 1000 years in the Past, why not connect the two. What if we introduced a tab at the top of each site that lead to the other. We could even say it's a portal between the past and future in where you can port characters between time and stories. It would be a good way to get various characters doing interesting things in different time periods. Similar to how I had Starlight travel to the past and equalize Luna. This would also be an interesting thing for characters that live between the time period. For example past Luna Rped by me meeting her future self rped by you. Our differences in rp style could be considered character development and how they have changed over the years.

It might just be me, but I have no idea what 'My Little RP' is. What are you talking about?

So, to clear some things up, the only characters that exist in both world are the alicorns? Which means technically they can be from the same universe? That's better, I thought it was a thing where current characters were in the past, at which point I would have definitely have said no. So, what exactly is the point, then? What use would I have, any of us have, for going back to the past? Are you making a new forum 1000 years in the past, or connecting to some other forum with pre-established canons and changes to history that don't exist here? I don't want to seem like I'm fighting your idea, there are just some holes I'd like filled first.

Well the alicorns and characters who can live for a thousand years. This is mainly aimed at Cadence as he knows what I'm talking about. I think it would be fun to be able to have travel to past by linking timelines together. The theory I was thinking was their are various ways to get to the past and characters could use these portals to venture back or forward between the two.
