      • Have writing contests!

        Maybe just competing with others on different prompts and they get a new profile title. "Edgar Allan Poe Status". The rest is just brain-storming. Something like pretending to be a character from your favorite movie/book. Things you wish you could say to your best friend or worst enemy. If you were an animal writing to humans?

              • Daily diary email

                There was a service called Oh Life a few years ago that sent you a daily email to ask about your day. You would reply and it would be stored as a diary entry that will be sent to you after a year.

                It was a fantastic service but was shut down. If you could add a feature like this to FutureMe, it would be fantastic.

                Cheers!

                • Multiple EMails

                  Allow registered users to send any given message to multiple addresses at once, using semi-colons or something in the email address field. Currently it seems I have to send multiple copies to one different address at a time!

                            • let us have no time limit on receiving letters

                              I would like there to be no limit on when we can receive the letters. For example, I tried to send myself an e-mail for an event I have coming up, to get my confidence up. But it's less than thirty days away, so I can't. I'd like to be able to do things like that.

                              • What if at the top of the FutureMe page, there was a countdown until your next letter would come?

                                it would be a lot easier and even more fun if we could countdown until the letter arrives. I don't know, it would be dramatic and helpful.

                                VOTE FOR THIS.

                                  • Change the "your email" at the end of the letter to "destination" or smth like that.

                                    At the end of the email we can enter the destination email address but the current instructions are to enter "your email". If we're emailing another person, their email address should go there, not ours. In that situation, some people may think that this is where the return email address goes.

                                    • make a sibling website by the name of pastme.org

                                      It may take a while to prototype retrogressive data transmission and bypass causal loops, but I think it will be well worth the effort.
                                      I eagerly await my first email containing a timeline of my entire life and a chronologized spreadsheet containing the flavors of jam that I'll be spreading on my toast every morning.

                                          I actually prefer the old basic format. This new one is too blue -- the old-fashioned robotic blue color. I don't mind the upgrades as long as I can keep sending future letters without going through a complex process. I do think though that attaching pictures from folders to the letter (instead of taking a picture) is nice to have. Thank you for the great job! This is your contribution to humanity!
