Since Cam suggested the idea, I thought I'd give it a place to grow. Should anyone come across an Esterbrook thread that appears to be suitable for relocation to the Esterbrook forum, why not post a link to it here, and we'll see about moving it.

For Example:
http://www.fountainp...indpost&p=22499
http://www.fountainp...indpost&p=19347
http://www.fountainp...indpost&p=19022
http://www.fountainp...indpost&p=16860
http://www.fountainp...indpost&p=10221
http://www.fountainp...indpost&p=10500
http://www.fountainp...findpost&p=9779
http://www.fountainp...findpost&p=8658
http://www.fountainp...findpost&p=7425
http://www.fountainp...findpost&p=5741
http://www.fountainp...findpost&p=5291
http://www.fountainp...findpost&p=4072
http://www.fountainp...findpost&p=4192

Repair
The question re posts to the repair forum is whether they are better off there, or in the Estie Forum. That would depend on the post I guess. Any comments on the following?

Hi Gerry,

I think the repair threads should stay in the Repair forum for easy access.

Denis.

Edit : I moved the other threads :)

Sure Maja, although we'll have to wait until Admin does it - I don't think our moderator powers extend to other fora, so while we can move posts in this forum, we can't get posts from other fora. <_<

The only one I would hesitate on is the first - since the eBay reference is expired the best part (the item itself) is no longer visible leaving the reader wondering what the discussion is all about.

Nevertheless, it is Esterbrook, and I suppose if it is going to be anywhere, it might as well be here, right?

So Denis - one more time perhaps?

Thanks,

Gerry

I was wondering about that first thread too, Gerry; I didn't check the Ebay link but I think after 'X' number of months, the auction disappears into the Internet ether!

Well, just keep on posting the little threads, and we'll move them all, I guess :D.
I've got an Estie too, btw, a red one... :D

I *knew* you were one of us Wim.

Congratulations.

Maybe we should have voted for an Estie nib for the FPN LOGO... :D
