I personally LOVE Saffron.  Another ink on the same line that I love..  DeAtramentis Mahatma Gandhi (not MontBlanc)

This is the peril of using outside image servers like photobucket or imageshack for uploading pictures to FPN. Better to use the "upload" tab which, although not intuitive, works very well.

The links to the image shown in posts #81 and #82 up on top of this FPN page still work as they are easy to see, (at least for me)  and they were made using photobucket.

You are absolutely right and I apologize for making such a broad and sweeping statement. I should have qualified my objections to situations where the poster closes his image hosting account, reorganizes his file structure or the image hosting server goes through some internal changes or closes. In those cases the hyperlinks are broken and the images disappear from the posts. This happens with alarming regularity and, for that reason, many threads on FPN have lost their usefulness.

If, however, the poster uses the FPN "upload" tab, the image is hosted on the FPN servers and it is unlikely that the hyperlinks will break. Naturally, should FPN ever close the images will be lost forever. Then again this controversy will become moot... ;)

Photobucket links can stop working temporarily if owner's account exceeds bandwidth allowance for that period; it resets afterwards.

If you're an active PB user it's wise to establish a new account every year or so even before your a/c runs out of storage space allowance.

The bandwidth allowance is per a/c and is total of all accesses to your photos. When your photo is online, quoted and requoted manyfold... it all adds up very quickly.

Carlos, no problem! I've been told that the FPN "Upload" tab function is good to use. But I've always just used the "Image" icon in this Reply window and that has always worked with PB. PB itself is a bit dreary (w/ or w/o ads) but it has as yet over the years (at least for me) always functioned okay.

Hi- sorry to resurrect this thread but I wondered if anyone can tell me what is an equivalent ink ti montblanc ink of joy? I absolutely LOVE this ink and can't find anything near it in this cheerful orange....iroshizuku yu-yake and fuyu gaki are too red as is diamine pumpkin. Any ideas anyone?

 

Have a look at Kaweco Sunrise Orange. You could try a pack pf cartridges or maybe find a sample before committing to a bottle.
