Following up from this thread:

 

http://www.fountainp...bin-1670-rouge/

 

 

It seems there are people who dislike the sediment-heavy original J. Herbin 1670 Rouge Hematite but liked the red color.  And there are people who dislike the new sheen-reduced reformulation.

 

I thought it would be nice to start a thread where people who may be interested in exchanging their reasonably unused (for whichever reason) bottles for the opposite with someone who has the opposite problem.

 

Please make all trade offers via PM to keep personal details out of the threads.  Also, an update when your trade has been made would be nice, to let people know you're off the list.

 

To participate in this, simply supply the following in your post (using myself as example):

 

I Have: Reformulation

I Want: Original

Hey all ya'lls.  I'm one of the original posters on the referring thread.  A moderator report was opened to discuss whether or not this thread should instead be a "wanted" section of the classifieds.

 

While I did not consider the trade to be substantially different from ink sample swaps, the new rules do have a rule about trades (see below).  Thus, the post should properly be under the classifieds.  

 

If you post up a classified, I will try and add the link from this thread.

 

Amber

 

 

See the rule here:

 

11. Wanted To Trade (WTT). 

Create a normal Classified, including photograph, price (value), etc., and add WTT to the beginning of the item header text. Indicate in the description of the item what you would like to trade for. This is effectively a sale, be it not necessarily for money, hence the same requirements apply as do for sales.


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Ooops...    Not dying for it or anything... I just wanted to see what's the fuzz about.

 

Thanks Amber.

The rule referenced seems to imply an individual want ad.  I was thinking of this as a matchup thread for several users- sort of like the ink swap-rather than a single user wanted post.  Would a thread like this be able to go under classifieds?  Or would those have to be single posts per user?

So after some input from other moderators, the consensus seems to be that a thread is more appropriate than a classified because hopefully you will have a lot more than 1 or 2 people involved.  

 

Sorry for the delay.

 

Let's swap some ink!

Ok. Have we got it all sorted out? You sure?? Convene another meeting??? HMMMM????

 

Ok then.

 

 

I have a New Formulation Rouge Hematite. It has no gold.

I would love the Old Formulation, with the gold (and sheen).

 

I think there are only about two fills gone out of the bottle, maybe three. PM me if you would like to trade, hopefully with a similarly full bottle.

Thanks for keeping us going.

I'm hoping this won't be completely lopsided and we'll help some people out :)
