The Closing Of Doors…

RedDoorsParisFranceVampire Community News (VCN) will continue to operate a monthly recap of articles with syndication via Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr through December 31, 2016.  Without the materialization of a MORE CONSISTENT support network it’s unlikely we’ll continue making the daily and monthly postings of vampire community related news and information in 2017.  I (Merticus) have continuously provided this service to the vampire community since 2008 and unfortunately my spare time is increasingly limited due to my professional career expanding on multiple fronts.

In August, the directors of Suscitatio Enterprises, LLC (parent company of VCN, AVA, VEWRS, VDTORS, VVC, etc.) met and discussed our present and future role with respect to the vampire community.  We collectively came to the unanimous decision that unless we’re breaking even on costs to provide websites, resources and other information that the time may have come to officially dissolve our operations.  In terms of the vampire community we believe we have accomplished the goals we set forth beginning in 2006.  It’s my fervent hope that progress is not stifled and that stagnation does not take hold of the community.  How the vampire community evolves has always been and will always be up to you.  Embrace new ideas and newcomers while continually challenging yourself to create and refine your passions!

We’ve no interest in crowdfunding or other revenue driving initiatives (we much prefer simply existing and never having to ask) but based on the level of support we receive between now and December 31st we will evaluate the logistical feasibility (and viability) of appointing vetted and responsible individuals to spearhead our ongoing projects and other initiatives so that they may continue and flourish in our absence.  If at all possible we wish to preserve the framework we’ve established, but we’ll respect the will of the vampire community if this isn’t the direction the majority wish to pursue.

Therefore, if you find value in the services and projects we facilitate and you’re able PLEASE DONATE by using the PayPal ‘DONATE‘ button located at the bottom of this website or at the website listed below.  A PayPal account is NOT required to make a donation.  Proceeds collected will be used to keep the various websites and projects running into next year until we can transition moderation and administrator access to those who will come next.  Thank you for whatever donation you’re able to make — great or small!

Global V.D.T.O.R.S. Community Directory – July 12, 2013 Update

GlobalMapMailingListGLOBAL 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


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 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
