I was on yahoo messenger boards then on Don Henry the Vampire Website before getting word of this place by an old lady friend on mine that went by the name of Countess. Please do share with us all on how you came here thank you.
I was on vampire freaks befor coming here and on msn message
I was on a place one called
Vampire social. Then, they started
Shutting down. Like how vampire
Freaks are going to do in feb.
I joined a book forum by a specific author. I'm not that good at reading, go figure, I love romantic novels. The book series was called Vampire Kisses.
I enjoyed their forums because I had people to connect to. Unfortunately I was young and trolls were bigger back then. So I took things personally and didn't like it there anymore.
I wanted to find another "vampire " forum but I didn't want to get into the roleplaying scene. To be honest, I was kicked out of other "vampire " forums for not being a believer.
Vampire freaks I didn't join believe it or not, till years later. I felt like it hit too close to home with the amount of people who lived nearby me. I was afraid of stalkers.
Vampire Rave gave me comfort and new friends. Now I'm not so anonymous.
I am still in the same place as I was before, seeking knowledge.
my head buried in books
I have to agree with Doru post. Same place... seeking knowledge.
1995 - 2001 Undernet IRC chat channel #vampires.
1999 - 2002 VampireRadio.com
2002 - 2006 Acrimony.org
2005 - Present VampireRave.com
It's hard for me to say when I was first on the "Internet". I got online in 1985 with a 300 baud modem. At this time there were only BBS's (bulletin board systems). This modem was so slow, I could read faster than the text appeared on the screen.
In the late 80s the BBS's started to interconnect. Around this time I gained access to the University of Michigan intranet. It was connected to other universities.. so I could "hop" to other networks. This was the very early Internet, but it wasn't called the Internet until around 1991. Prior to '91, the Internet was virtually 100% textual, and very very slow.
Head in books as well.
Wondering around, lost.
I was on Yahoo for year before finding VR. The chatrooms on Yahoo, allowed me to meet friends all over the world and share stories and information. The vampire world was far more "lurkish" at that point. When I found VR, I had stepped away from my vampire roots for a number of years. I guess you can never just walk away.
books, several tribal face book groups i agree with Doru seeking knowledge and wow the last month has been a real learning month - the forgotten
No Longer Registered
I was on vampire freaks
Living my life. Just the same as I am now.
I found this place bc a friend sugested it to me when VF shut down ^^
Was here from way before,come back once in a while.Was on Facebook and all that social media junk before that.Find this way more chill
I was in the yahoo graveyard chat as winglessangel.
Then my buddies and I went to There.com.
I made my way here around 2004 or 2005 off and on.
I came from VampireFreaks, but a long time ago I was on VampireRave. I'm also on GoneGothic and GothWire.
I don't even remember how I stumbled upon VR and that scares me a bit :) my original account was BleedingTear, I think it was around 2006.
Before this I was on herzeleid, a Rammstein fan page where you could have an account and read forums. And of course, as many more, on Yahoo Messenger and MSN.
My first contact with the internet was on the internet as well, on a fee IRC channels. Never joined vampire freaks or other vampire communities besides this one.
Oh and of course, I was living my teen life and now I'm just adulting around :)
I came from VampireFreaks. This place seems really awesome so far.
I was on VampireFreaks before coming here.
I hadn't really searched for any sites or societies to be part of the Rave was introduced to me by a close friend who thought that I would like the place. I am still keeping my head down and in books still learning I guess.
I was creating a website on Vampires on geocities. I am not sure if they are still running that domain. Research led me here. Those were the days, really.
I was merely floating about on random vampire forums...neither here nor there til I caught wind of this place :) now I'm all about learning.
I was just out lost in the world. Stumbled upon the site and stuck around for many years before dancing in the stars. Hope I can find what I had before ...
Small yuku forum called Blood and Roses, catered to OVC and helping others learn. DrinkDeeplyandDream was another I frequented as well as Smoke and Mirrors- Vampire and otherkin forum. It was mostly for friends and meetups, which I am grateful for. I have met some awesome people in person over the years, and this site has brought me new forever friendships:)
just web surfing till i found vr
Originally I was online at SFNet then as that started to collapse I found Tribe.net then as it started to change, I found this place.
Alone in a dark room, just waiting to meet vampire interested persons? :)
I was on some artist's community website. It was by chance that someone saw my photos and said I might like it here.
I was originally on vampire freaks as well
Before this site, I didn't really do sites of this kind before. This was totally new to me.
My internet Life has been intetesting, as far as social media goes, I started with aol chat rooms, neopets, doll palace, and eventually myspace when it started. It was my search for vampire fangs and research that landed me on the vampire rave.
Was on a vampire site Drink Deeply and Dream. I also was part of a Yuku group that catered to ovc called Blood and Roses. It was quite interesting as I have met so many good people. Vampire Rave was recommended to me by a friend over a decade ago and lookie I got hookie and I'm, still here:). The way this site evolves is such a wonderful thing. I can't wait to see what the next decade will bring us:)
Friend sent me an invite here almost 11 years ago on a different profile
As she knew had an interest in the supernatural and the occult and thought I would like it here
Most groups forums I belonged to where either PSP or Wiccan pagan groups
AOL...Living In A Apartment...
A yahoo chatroom called The Graveyard as Winglessangel.
Wingless Angel? that is a good name.
I was nowhere vampire related tbh
I was in person through Meetup before quarantine shut down my state...a whole year ago lol
