The VVC tries something different

Many of you are familiar with who the VVC are because you’ve participated in our Global Community Chats, have subscribed to our RSS feed, follow Vampire Community News on Twitter, or through some other avenue. For those who aren’t, our public website is available here: an excerpt from our organizational statement can be found below:

Once a quarter, we designate our business meeting as “public,” meaning we post a transcript of it on our website. Our next public meeting will be held on August 30th, and we’ve decided to ask for your input on our meeting agenda. Do you have suggestions for projects you’d like to see us undertake, which could involve the entire community? Are there any topics or issues you feel need to be discussed? What would you like to see us attempt to accomplish in the future?

Please remember that public meetings aren’t the same as global discussions. The meeting is only attended by VVC members and the transcript will be made public later. You can refer to prior meeting agendas before making suggestions so you know what we’ve discussed in the past and avoid duplicate suggestions. Please try to make your suggestions for topics with responses that can be thought-out or written out beforehand. That way members who are unable to attend can still submit their views for the record.

We’ve only got a few days, so please try to respond by 11:59 PM on Sunday August 23, 2009. I’ll take your suggestions back to the VVC for consideration or submit them directly via the feedback form (see below). Even if we don’t use it this time, we might include it in a future meeting.

Please feel free to contact me or any member of the VVC directly with your suggestions, or follow this link to post your suggestions to the VVC Community Feedback form:


Guess what?

I got interviewed by  a newspaper that’s all the way over in Portugal about the vampire community and my role (and donors in general) in it. Super spiffy! Will try to get a copy once it’s in print so I can show y’all. Apparently the guy who’s writing the article didn’t think the community was as large as it is, so it’s going to be a much larger article than originally planned (which, imo, is freaking awesome).  Now, let’s see if my interview gets actually used, unlike the last interview I did…

Other than that, not much to say today. Tired, somewhat cranky because my game doesn’t wish to update, and debating on what I want to eat. Hasta!
