Static fiction (and possible time travel)
Recently, Suppy and I had discussed the possibility of static fiction. That is, developing all content within the same time period and maintaining a single "present day". All stories and RP's would be set in this time frame or another date which we agree upon. Although our wiki started out this way, it was still underutilized with a much greater focus on backstory than present day time, and we eventually moved away from it. By once again having a set present date, this could eliminate confusion and keep everyone on the same page much more easily.
Suppy's suggested date was 2143 AD, but one of the issues that remain is the articles that are set beyond this date such as the Sunt Invasion and the later phases of Chaos Crisis. Instead of 2143, using 2190 AD, the date when all of the dust of the Chaos Crisis would have settled, is another option although it is clear that 2143 AD is the far more developed of the two dates. It might not be wise to delete articles set in the future as they make up a good chunk of the wiki, but what I had as a counterproposal was to have multiple time periods to choose to write for and connect them via time travel.
Yes, I know what was said about time travel at the beginning of the wiki, but we may be able to get it to work if we agree upon having multiple time periods to choose from. While the specifics still need to be ironed out (if we end up using this idea), the way time travel could be utilized is to have it so that the different time periods are treated as separate locations divided by a time skip (and time travel would probably follow the logic of the stable time loop). I would more or less compare the relationship of these time periods as akin to the relationship between multiple universes in Multiverses Wiki. Just for example, there would be a faction or another group of people that would be capable of travelling from 2190 AD to 2143 AD and back, but there would only be a few that would have this ability, and such factions/characters would be collaboratively created.
As this is a rather significant change, we want to hear your feedback before we make any new rules. Let us know what you think. Which option do you think is best? Should we have a single, set present day, multiple time periods connected to one another, or should we just have no present day?
