If you are reading this post and identify as either a Real Vampi(y)re, Donor, Therian, or Otherkin you are strongly encouraged you join the Global VDTORS Community Directory by completing the Sign-Up Form located at the following link.

Maps & Database: http://www.veritasvosliberabit.com/projects/globaldirectorydatabase.html


The Global V.D.T.O.R.S. Community Directory is now 100% updated through July 12, 2013.  More than 1,302 Vampires, Donors, Therians, & Otherkin + Researchers & Supporters have joined from nearly 60 countries!  The next major update will occur in mid-August or early September 2013.  We have fully implemented the Unique Identifier (UID) and Regional Contact System which will provide secure contact options for those who desire such while limiting outward-facing identification risk.  If you’re a VDTORS participant please check your e-mail for the link to the private UID submission portal or contact us at VVCNotification@gmail.com.  The main directory map is best viewed in full screen mode and refer to the symbol legend for more information.  We’ve also streamlined the database chart into PDF format for faster page loading and mobile accessibility for this latest July 2013 update.

One of the benefits of this directory is that it can be ported to virtually any geovisualization platform and once we cross the threshold of approximately 1,750 or so participants we can begin more advanced geovisual analytics and modeling.  We will soon be able to extrapolate average age differences between communities and different areas of the World, highlight regions of greater concentration of sanguinarian versus psychic feeding vampires, overlay existing census data of large population centers onto our own ‘hot-spots’ of activity for comparison, examine geographic pockets of therian and otherkin concentration as compared to Howls, Packs, and established groups, and countess other statistical points of interest.  It should go without saying; but if you know any Vampi(y)res, Donors, Therians, and Otherkin who have yet to sign up for the Directory please point them to the Sign Up Form — for example once we receive approx. 35-50 additional therians/otherkin (exclusive) we’ll be providing split maps exclusively for these groups.  As the Directory grows so shall the amount features we’ll be adding.

The Global V.D.T.O.R.S. Community Directory is now 100% updated and operational as of June 1, 2013.  More than 1,144 Vampires, Donors, Therians, & Otherkin + Researchers & Supporters have joined from nearly 60 countries!  The next major update will occur July 1, 2013.  We have now implemented the Unique Identifier (UID) and Regional Contact System which will provide secure contact options for those who desire such while limiting outward-facing identification risk.  One of the benefits of this directory is that it can be ported to virtually any geovisualization platform and once we cross the threshold of approximately 1,750 or so participants we can begin more advanced geovisual analytics and modeling.

If you know any Vampi(y)res, Donors, Therians, and Otherkin who have yet to sign up for the Directory please point them to the Sign Up Form – we rely on you to distribute this information to the various forums, groups, websites, and closed communities who may not be aware this project exists. If you have already signed up at a prior date please do *NOT* do so again as this significantly slows our processing time.  Once we receive approximately 50-75 additional therians/otherkin (exclusive) we’ll be providing split maps exclusively for these groups.  As the Directory grows so shall the amount features we’ll be adding.

The following information is important to understand so that you can accurately read the maps and legend provided at the Geographical Maps & Database link below. It’s necessary that you look at the legend on the right-hand side of the map (the one that lists all the cities and other data) combined with the large chart at the bottom of the web page. Multiple individuals within the same city (latitude/longitude) will show on the map as the same point but as larger points on the frequency map. We’re searching for time-effective methods for altering this in the future that don’t involve changing latitudes/longitudes for everyone manually. Spending a few minutes playing around with the maps, legend, and chart will answer most of the questions you may have and be sure to click points on the legend for a pop-up window of each participant showing feeding method, identity type, and theriotype/kintype as applicable.  If you’re unsure of your own personal Unique Identifier (UID) number or have any other questions please let us know via e-mail at VVCNotification@gmail.com

Introducing The Global Vampire, Donor, Therian, Otherkin+ Community Directory

GlobalVDTORSCommunityDirectoryAltLogoGLOBAL NOTICE TO ALL VISITORS:

If you are reading this post and identify as either a Real Vampi(y)re, Donor, Therian, or Otherkin you are strongly encouraged you join the Global VDTORS Community Directory by completing the Sign-Up Form located at the following link.

Sign-Up Form: http://www.veritasvosliberabit.com/projects/globaldirectory.html
Maps & Database: http://www.veritasvosliberabit.com/projects/globaldirectorydatabase.html


We are proud to announce the the official public release of the Global V.D.T.O.R.S. Community Directory!  At the link below you will find the most current Identity Type Distribution and Frequency Distribution geographic maps for the 1,036 Vampi(y)res, Donors, Therians, Otherkin, Researchers, and Supporters who have signed up for the Directory as of May 19, 2013.  Anyone signing up for the Directory after 2 PM ET May 19, 2013 will be included in future updates.  If you have not already joined we highly encourage you to do so by visiting the sign-up form linked above (Note; please do NOT complete the form again if you have already done so – if in doubt please e-mail us and inquire).  As more participants join we will be unveiling additional features, demographic correlations, layered map renderings, and other components (once we attain 250+ exclusive participants for both the Therian and Otherkin communities we will provide joint and separate maps for more streamlined viewing along with theriotype(s) and kintype(s) added to the description fields where applicable).

Vampires and donors (+ therians and otherkin) who have requested to be placed in contact with others in their geographic areas will receive instructions via their primary e-mail address on or about May 31, 2013 detailing the specifics of the UID Contact System mentioned in the Database page linked below.  Please review all materials, legend descriptions, database chart at the bottom of the page, and take advantage of viewing the maps in full screen mode.  This has and will continue to be a labor of hundreds of hours of data compilation, revising, double checking for duplicates/misspellings, correlations, etc. and we appreciate any donations you are able to send to keep Merticus well stocked with coffee and libations.  This project will evolve and grow based on the involvement of the communities represented so if you are aware of individuals or groups who have yet to complete the sign-up form please give them a friendly nudge.  Thank you!

U.S. State & Country Distribution – Valid From May 1, 2013:


Sample Directory Database – Valid From May 1, 2013:

The database (45+ pages) contains the detailed breakdown of identity along with contact/mailing preferences and is still being compiled and edited for duplications, accuracy, and geographic groupings (please do NOT resubmit the registration form if you have already completed it in the past).  We estimate it will take approximately 10-15 days to finalize this process and apologize for the delay — entering and parsing data for soon to be approaching 1,000 individuals is a daunting and time consuming task.  We thank you for your patience!

Sample Directory Maps – Valid From May 1, 2013:

We have selected four (4) sample locations until we are able to finish compiling the information on all respondents to date so that there will be a better understanding on how the Global Directory will appear to the public.  All direct contact information (e-mail) will be distributed internally to those in the specific geographic regions and no monikers/names will be included on the public website in order to afford the highest degree of anonymity.  While we realize some community directories list the name and e-mail of participants as pinpoints on a map, the dangers inherit to using that information to possibly ascertain the identity of the individual are quite real.  We remain committed to providing the highest level of professionalism, security, and comprehensiveness with this Global Directory and appreciate your participation.

We anticipate providing both a large global map and smaller regional maps for distribution frequencies in excess of 15-20+.  A chart breaking down the specific feeding and donation preferences + identities will also be provided.  Differently colored points for exclusive Donor, Therian, Otherkin, Researcher, and Supporter respondents should also be implemented, however, multiple combinations or hybrid respondents will appear in red by default.
