Sorry, I didn't read much of this thread, but I still want to voice my opinion to it.

Humans would be food, slaves, and fodder, not allowed near true technology.
Hiding was the dumbest move they could have made. Why let your enemy get strong when you can conquer them?
You're thinking the vampires would join together and conquer their common enemy, the humans.
But this world doesn't work that way. The humans aren't enemies, just easy inconsequential food.
The enemy is anyone who tries to destroy their long established way of life, like other vampires tying to
take over, throwing the world into chaos and messing with their beloved homes.
Vampires are very independent, territorial, protective of their hunting ground and don't bow down to authority.
Now I suppose after a few more centuries, when the humans become an actual threat, exposing them and even
destroying some of the Volturi, then the vampires would be forced to do something about them.
But they wouldn't enslave humans and become farmers.
That's too much work.
Why farm animals, keeping them under constant observation, when they multiply on their own right in front of you.
Instead they would probably destroy all civilization, throwing mankind back into the Stone Age,
and then hide again for a few generations, until they become myth again and slowly be forgotten.
(Maybe they already did that a few times.
Of course humans have superiority in numbers, but the vampires can quickly change that, by creating
Newborn armies. (while others hide under ground or in the oceans somewhere waiting it out)
The southern wars in Mexico almost wiped out the humans there too, and that were vamps trying to be careful and fighting each other.
So unless the humans develop some miracle disease or radiation, to destroy all vamps around the planet very quickly, I don't think the humans would stand any chance.
Now the time afterwards would be very violent for the vamps too, fighting each other over the new scarcely populated hunting grounds.
So in the end only a fraction of the humans and vamps would survive, and things would start anew.
