Looking at the PDF of it, there are no explanations for the different shaded areas. Can someone fill me in on what the designations are?
Thanks.

Something got changed. The first day it was up have the color code key. But later downloads of it are missing it. Perhaps the doc is not as final as they thought...

No, we've all had the chip implanted psychically.

To answer your original question, though...

Dark blue is for registered theme camps
Medium blue is for villages
Lighter blue with diagonal lines is "theme camp reserve"
Lightest blue is open to anyone, first come-first serve

It's my understanding that theme camp reserve is where the placement teams will go, should they need additional space for the registered theme camps beyond what's in dark blue.

My guess would be that they're not only showing the general city layout, but making more of an effort to keep space closer to the esplanade available to non-theme camps.

What is the definition of a "Village"? How does one get into a village, or find the right one to join?

I have searched for "village" on the ePlaya, but came up with a lot of bunk.

Any help?

Villages, places such as Hushville, Kidsville, AEZ, Gigsville, and there's others ... they've always been listed as theme camps before. I'm in Hushville and it requires preregistraion. Got waaay too crowded when folks simply showed up. We fondly called it Burning Man Calcutta one year; tent guy wires were overlapping we were so close in together.
These are not my fuckos.

Villages are theme camps over a certain size. According to the 2006 Theme Camp Questionnaire, Villages are camps of more than 150 people. You'd join them the same way that you'd join any other camp - getting in touch with the organizers of that camp and ask.

To me villages seem to be more a collection of smaller "theme" camps, as opposed to the entire camp being only one theme. Lots of smaller camps under one big umbrella.

Yeah, most villages I've seen wind up being a collection/coalition of smaller camps.

As an example, look at Wheeeee!Ville ["Having More Fun Than You Since 2004"]. Some of the camps located within the confines of the village include Donut Love, Barbie Death Camp & Wine Bistro, the somewhat loosely-aligned Loose Nutz, and Smite. We needed to have 150 to become a village two years ago and are still pretty exclusionary about whom we allow in. But on the plus side, BDC&WB is always situated on a corner, so we're really easy to find (especially necessary Thursday afternoon for the Annual Meet & Greet), which is exactly what we want. Your regular garden-variety theme camp has virtually no say-so on where they will be placed, so, as the old saying goes, membership does have it's privileges.

I like the idea of villages, Doc. In my opinion it's a good way to keep the individual camp sizes small enough so each member has a voice, and minimizes what I call "big camp drama."

I believe that's the road that circles Center Camp. You'd be at that intersection (or close to it).

medium blue = communities

actually the original legend stated 'communities' -- my camp is in one of those regions, we are not part of a "village". i was curious too (since we were placed there!). minor point?

probably a mix of villages and other like minded camps. lots of space there. similar camps are grouped together in those areas to create communities. just keep in mind that a 'village' denotes a collective (number of camps) working together.
