Geez, I have a lot of questions! Is there more than one at a time in the world or is there just one at once time?

Do you mean about the amount of people on line at once? Well it depends how many people are there. Often people here will visit for about half an hour a day going through loads and laods of threads offeirng lots of answers. Sometimes people will be almost talking on the forums because once someone replies to a thread everyone who has posted in it normally gets an email saying that.

You can see how busy it gets at http://www.talkstargate.com

Talkbuffy.com is only 3 days old so we need lots of new people to make it busy - i have no doubt that it will happen but any help in getting people here by telling friends is appreciated.

Suggestion: just ask as many questions as you can, someone is bound to be aroud here, will answer the questions and then you will get an email. The more topics we have with questions the more people who will see something to respond to and that will kick start discussions.

Hope that helps,

there's only supposed to be one slayer at a time...I think. But because Buffy died another slayer was called. Then she was revived so now there are two. It makes me wonder about all the vampires and uglies in other parts of the world...who kills them?

Well I have been thinking about this question lately...I always thought that there would be a different slayer in each town/city/country ect and also of course a watcher to go with them. As I thought that when Faith turned up she come from a different state and had a watcher there! (the same for Kendra)
But if this is so they why has Angel never come across a slayer in LA?;)
Am I just confused or do I think too much:rolleyes:

There's only ONE slayer, i think. But there are a lot of girls who fight against demons all over the world, but you don't have to call them slayers, they are something like students.

There are so many watchers, cause they have to train this "slayers of tomorrow". Only if the present slayer is dead, another girl (the best trained) will be choosed for the job.

Three, obviously

GILES: "And you are called?"
KENDRA: "I am the Vampire Slayer."
**************************************************
GILES: "Um, th-the new Slayer is only called after the previous Slayer has died. Uh... Oh, good Lord! You were dead, Buffy."

------------------------
And don't forget that Xander's first words on seeing Faith were something like, "I'm guessing there's a new Slayer in town."

-------------------------

It's there in black & white.

Think about it. Buffy was not an athelete, she did not have her strength or agility before she was "called" and trained. She says herself that she became the Slayer at the age of 15. Therefore, Kendra also became a Slayer when Buffy was drowned by the Master. Slayer is a birth-right, but you don't become one until it's your time - until you're called. And a new one is called each time one dies.

The old chestnut that "there's only one per generation" is obviously wrong, since some Slayers don't live a generation, which is defined as 30 years. It's poetic short-hand for there's only one at a time. But Buffy changed that by surviving her death. Buffy has left her permanent imprint on the Slayer legacy.

I agree that has to be several women lined up to assume the title at any time. But many are not called. There are at least two Slayers now "active". Since Buffy has died again, I know think that there should be three. If she keeps dying there may be a population explosion of Slayers.

If you don't believe that Faith is a Vampire Slayer, then you tell her, but make sure that your insurance is paid up.

One more point...

One more thing I couldn't resist adding:

Joyce: So you're a Slayer, too. Isn't that interesting! Do you like it?

Faith: God, I love it!

The Plaintiff rests, your Honor.
