    Global Vampire & Donor+ Directory Update & Geographic Breakdown
    http://merticus.com/vampirenews/2013...hic-breakdown/

    452 - United States of America (~47/50 States), 36 - United Kingdom, 25 - Canada, 18 - Germany, 17 - Russia, 13 - South Africa, 12 - Italy, 10 - Denmark, 9 - Australia, 8 - India, 6 - New Zealand, 5 - Austria, 5 - Netherlands, 4 - France, 4 - Norway, 3 - Brazil, 3 - Greece, 3 - Mexico, 2 - Iraq, 1 - Iran, 1 - Egypt, 49 - Other Countries*; 34.1% Non-U.S. (234) | 65.9% U.S. (452)

    *Therians/Otherkin: We’ve been asked if Therians and Otherkin may participate in this Directory and the answer is *YES* - we knew this might come up given cross-over between the communities so we provided for that option from the beginning. While the primary audience of this Directory are Vampires and/or Donors, we will also place Therians and Otherkin in contact with one another per their geographic area and/or with Vampires, Donors, etc. as desired. We will followup with self-identifying Therians and Otherkin individually after the public launch of the Directory in May. Thank you for your interest and participation.

    **Basically the Vampire community is compiling a Directory similar to the excellent resource of the "WereMap" here on Werelist and there is enough cross-over of vampire/therians/otherkin in the responses we've received thus far that we're not opposed to assisting therians/otherkin etc. who wish to also participate - whether they identify with vampirism or not.

    Useful! My think is that there is enough commonality that putting folks from these communities in touch has the potential to be very helpful and socially rewarding.

    Global Directory Update
    May 1, 2013


    http://merticus.com/vampirenews/2013...te-may-1-2013/

    Thank you for your continued patience as we compile over 820+ directory registrations and look forward to making connections later this month. This has been a daunting task and we appreciate your support and encouragement of those you know in the vampire, donor, therian, and otherkin communities to complete the form and join the Global Directory. For a more detailed update explanation along with completed U.S. State & Country statistics and sample charts/maps please refer to the link above.

    Thank you to the 110+ Therians who have signed up for the Directory thus far.

    I’m still plugging away at entering data and formatting - should be completed within the next 8-9 days (hopefully sooner if I can find more spare moments in the day). I’ve gone ahead and updated the Georgia Map to give everyone an idea of the various symbols/colors/etc. assigned to each sub-group (a couple aren’t represented on that particular map - namely the green and purple triangles - exclusive therians & otherkin). I will also be including a description under each marker that indicates the feeding and/or donation preference and later theriotype/kin-type (as applicable).

    http://www.veritasvosliberabit.com/D...5.01.2013.html

    TENTATIVE LEGEND:

    Vampire Only = Red Circle
    Donor Only = Yellow Cross
    Therian Only = Lime Green Triangle
    Otherkin Only = Purple Triangle
    * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
    Vampire/Donor Combo = Red Cross
    Vampire/Donor/Therian/Otherkin Combo = Orange Cross

    * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
    Vampire/Therian/Otherkin Combo = Red Triangle

    * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
    Donor/Therian/Otherkin Combo = Lime Green Cross
    Therian/Otherkin Combo = Yellow Diamond

    * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
    Researcher Only = Pink Square
    Supporter Only = Pink Diamond
    > If both, default to Pink Diamond, secondary to primary groups

    The maps (individual) and the larger global one that is forthcoming are only one element to this project - contact within local areas will commence at the same time. Again, your help encouraging others to sign up before the final public launch will reduce workload on future updates. You are welcome to repost the Global Directory form on your Facebook wall, Tumblr, Twitter, and to others you know in the Vampire, Donor, Therian, & Otherkin communities. Thank you!

    Can we use an alias in the form?

    Absolutely!

    This is useful stuff, and it is inclusive of our community. It also costs money. Merticus has never even mentioned this or suggested posting this link, so I will. Please consider supporting the VEWRS & AVEWRS Research Study. Donation link at http://www.suscitatio.com/financial.html

    Thank you! We're currently at over 900 participants; including approximately 120 therians/therianthropes. Thank you for signing up and encouraging others from your community to do the same. I'm still parsing all the data but should be completed (caught up) by this weekend.

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.
