I have noticed that I am considered still at a "0" active roleplay count simply because I do all of my roleplaying in private messages. I have always preferred to do it this way. An idea I had, to possibly change my status from being a "newbie" would be a system in which you are able to mark messages by the type that they are. Whether or not they are just casual messages between users, or discussions on possibly starting a roleplay with a new partner, or whether they be an actual active roleplay taking place in the messages. To be able to categorize them would be of great advantage, at least to me.
