Didio said they have a 5 year plan for right now, so no reset until then. Unless Didio and the top brass are fired. Then again, plans change all the time.

I think that...we don't really know what's still in continuity and what's not. I see a lot of people here citing that they took the 80s New Teen Titans out of continuity, yet in Red Hood and the Outlaws #1, they directly mention Starfire and Nightwing's previous relationship. How could that still have happened if NTT didn't happen?
IMO, we need to just wait and see. A lot of people were saying that they doubted whether Blackest Night was still in continuity, yet then in GL #8, it was directly referenced. So, reiterating, I think we can pretend that a lot of stuff in still in continuity until DC says otherwise.
This is, in my opinion, what they need to devote their #0 issues to in September. Answer the heavy-hitter questions conclusively and appropriately. I don't care if they've changed their minds 10 times over the course of this past year on some things, just make a final decision on the big ones and get the answers out there on page soon. The very design of the #0 issues affords this opportunity perfectly and for me I like to imagine that's the entire purpose.
Couldn't disagree more. Laying a concise foundation is exactly what the the post-Crisis universe lacked, and why ultimately it just created new continuity issues altogether or made old ones even worse. Why make that same mistake twice? I can't fathom how it could be considered wasting pages to clear up critical questions that are still unknown or muddled at best in this 5 year window. The clearer the universe, the more engaging the immersion for the reader, and that goes for not only the second year but well beyond. Well worth a month's devotion of time, in my opinion.

I think the foundation of the current universe, as long as it's not contradictory, is established every month in the current books. If a writer establishes something about the past of a character, then that's the past of the character, and the only problem is if another writer contradicts that (for no good reason).
Yeah exactly. The problem with COIE is that a lot of the new establishing of history/continuity was contradictory. At least with unknown, I can fill in the blanks with my own imagination.
