S&Ms Holiday Newsletter and Quarterly Reports
Another year of adventures in Message Boarding!
S&M has had a year of very real change and certainly more than a few adventures.
We recently joined DARK NATIONS, which acts like a United Nations for the Vampire Community.
We're proud to have been invited to be represented there.
As part of DNs format member groups are invited to post quarterly reports and since we were doing it up for THEM, we thought we'd pass those reports on to
YOU our beloved members as part of our Holiday Newsletter.
So here is the news from the S&M Network sites and boards from the last quarter. All the news is broken down into parts, representing the various sections
of our Network. I hope you'll all drop by S&M Support on Yuku and drop us some feedback on our reports and let us know if it was of interest or if
we're just taking up your mailbox space, and what you'd LIKE to see in our Newsletters in the future.
Happy Holidays to every one of you.
Blessed New Years.
Enjoy the Reports!
Smoke Mirrors quarterly report part 1 Smoke and Mirrors Support
After a summer of uncertainty S&M Support is back running as it should be!
New members, new discussions, every kind of news from and about the community has been posted of late, with our post counts climbing DAILY after reaching an
all time LOW of 0 posts / Day over the summer just before the transition back from intrim ownership.
If you're looking for Vampire/ Therian/Otherkin Support, Fellowship, Vampire Community News or just a little fun, S&M is once again the support board
to drop by.
We've brought back a lower key version of our old BOS forums, that we had on ezboard before the move to YUKU.
We are looking for Moderators for several forums
We are looking for IRC Moderators for our brand new channel - Server: DALNET Channel: #smokeandmirrors
Thank you to all the staff and regular members who make S&M Support possible. Its been a rough year, but we're looking forward as the New Year
approaches. If you have some time on your hands and would like to help out we are expecting a rather heavy influx with the new Underworld coming out, on top of
Twilight, and could definately use the assistance!

Quarterly Report Part 2 S&M DARK
Smoke and Mirrors DARK is our "Inner Circle" / private membership boardhttp://www.smokenmirrorshome.com/phpBB3/
Entrance to S&M Dark is by registration and approval by our Admin team.
No Support is offered on S&M DARK. This board is for fellowship, research, and community discussions.
We do NOT accept Newbies, Roll Players or Lifestylers.
(Otherkin, Donors, Therians welcome, but be aware this is a Vampire Community Board)
We have SO much news from this board!
*Hacked 3 times this fall, we've upgraded to php3 and increased our security.
*We've uploaded several new skins and given our members the ability to change to their favourite skin as default.
*We did away with Moderators for the most part since we've actually needed posts moderated only TWICE since the board opened in '06.
So don't come by to work in the forums anymore. Come by to post and hang out instead!
*We've added a whole section for those who wish to keep up with events and news on Second Life at the Vampire Library and the SL
Real Vamp Communities.
*DARK IS accepting new members who fit with our DARK Member criteria. Please contact Lady CG or an Admin for more info.

Quarterly Report part 4: Smoke_and_Mirrors_Library Egroup · Smoke and Mirrors
This is the egroup for the Smoke and Mirrors Message Board:
Smoke and Mirrors Library Archive Website:
Smoke and Mirrors Vampire Articles RSS Feed
I'm sure most of our members here have heard about the revamp of S&M assets.. the boards, the website and i'm happy to say we have no forgotten
about our little egroup!
In the past the purpose of the egroup has been a place to collect files we could not post on the boards and a place for general chit chat.
We will now be using this egroup as a place were friends and members can submit thier articles and stories and other writings for use on our Community wide
public RSS feed and for use in the bookcases at the Vampiric Library on Second Life, where we collect REAL Vampires articles and info for the use of Real
Vampires who live in Second Life.
We'll also still be using this egroup to discuss new articles and offerings.
