Open and Closed Universes

Hello out there to all you awesome geniuses!
You know about Open and Closed Species, of course. Well, this is about Open and Closed Universes.
Have you ever drawn a few of your OCs together, only to find out that it wasn't canon for some of them to meet? It can be really frustrating.
With these new terms, all of that can change! An Open Universe original species is one where it is possible for characters of that original species to encounter characters of another original species. A closed universe is one where that is not possible.
This has nothing to do with whether a species is open or closed. There are closed species in open universes, and open species in closed universes.
Please use these new words as much as possible... They're really necessary and will help prevent a lot of confusion.

Also: AquaPyrofan has created some very useful Status Stamps! StatusStamp - OpenUniverse by AquaPyrofan StatusStamp - ClosedUniverse by AquaPyrofan
And we have created a group: :iconopenuniverses:

If you have an Open Universe or a Closed Universe, or any suggestions, please comment!

Oh this sounds cool! My own original species, Padors, or from a different planet. It is a planet that is open to other species being added, would this be considered an open universe as well?

Awesome!
That depends – is it possible, at least in theory, for someone from your planet to visit another planet, or for someone from another planet to visit the Pador homeworld?

I'm also working on adding Semi-Open and Semi-Closed universe stamps, and they're all emoticons, search "statusstamp" so everyone can use them and they don't add to the thumb limit in descriptions and such.
