Thanks for the welcome, guys! I'm super excited to be helping in the Ink Reviews section of this forum, as it is where I admittedly spend most of my time. I'm no SamCapote, but I'm definitely obsessed with inks! :blush: The only reason I'm finding the job a little tough is because I'm opening and looking at WAY MORE ink reviews than I have in the past, and now I want to buy them all. :headsmack:

I've been working my way backwards to update the index, from more recent reviews to later ones. But if anyone has any they know aren't in the index and they'd like me to update right away, feel free to PM me! I'm always happy for the head's up. :)


There are so many really wonderful people selected as moderators, with Simone being right up there at the top of the list. There is a reason this forum keeps growing and working out so well for so long. So much goes on behind the scenes including selecting great people as mods. Some have been doing this a long time, and I think they need a new round of thanks and appreciation, in addition to a heartfelt welcome to Saskia's new role. FPN makes the world a better place.

It has made my world better in ways you all cannot imagine. I have made art for people all over the world b/c of the kind people on this forum who have taken an interest in it - I've even become a pen maker because of the guidance and help from others.

It truly has made my life a whole lot better.

Warm welcome. Ink reviews is one of my favourite fora in this website.

Thanks, guys! I've been putting in A LOT of work on the various indices and "request for a review" page. I'm super happy with my progress, and I'm super grateful for the help for members who PMed me or posted with links that needed adding!

I'm looking forward to completely updating the review index so I can spend more time cleaning up the comparison index. :)

Belated congrats, Simone! I missed the original announcement of your ascension - your enthusiasm for ink is infections, and I'm going to enjoy your stint very much. Hope you do too!
