If you (and only you) analyze and review one ink* - that's an Ink Review.

 

If you (and only you) compare and contrast two inks* - that's a Comparison.

 

If you and a few of your buddies compare any number of inks* - that's a Co-Razy-Review.

 

Now, about that little "*" next to the word "ink" - what does that mean?  We mean inks that were at some time Readily Commercially Available. This means that ANY INK that was EVER sold at MSRP before your inky thoughts.  

 

Here's a few hypotheticals - the names have been changed to reflect the work done by one of my favorite artists and my early primers.  Fun with Dick and Jane.

 

Here are the inks: Skrip Peacock Blue and Parker Penman Sapphire have both been out of production for decades.  Both inks were sold in stores, and both can still be found on eBay.

 

If Jane does a review of Skrip Peacock Blue and a review of Parker Penman Sapphire, then she has 2 reviews and they both are posted in Ink Reviews.  If Dick reviews the same 2 inks, then he has 2 reviews and both those reviews are added to Ink Reviews. So, Ink Reviews would have 4 new threads - 2 new reviews of Penman Saphire (one from Jane and one from Dick); and 2 new reviews of Peacock Blue (again, one each from Jane and Dick).

 

If Jane then does a comparison between Skrip Peackock Blue and Parker Penman Sapphire, that comparison is posted in Ink Comparisons.  If Dick did a comparison of Parker Penman Sapphire and Skrip Peacock Blue, that comparison would be a new thread in Ink Comparisons.  Ink Comparisons would have two threads with analysis based on the same inks.

 

If Dick sends Jane a letter written with Skrip Peackock Blue, and Jane writes back on the same paper and compares her writing sample of Skrip Peacock Blue with Saskia's written sample, well, that's just Crazy a Co-Razy-View.  

 

What if Dick and Jane convince Sally to participate and the three of them all write with one ink?  That too is a Co-Razy-View. See some of the CRVs for Pilot Iroshizuku Inks.

 

Outside of the bottle is any inks that are test inks, beta ink for potential inks.   Then if they ever become RCA inks, the reviews that are outside the bottle stay outside, but new reviews will go in IR?

What if you (and only you) compare and contrast ten inks?  Like, say, those ambitious (and awesome) posts about multiple murky greens.  Would that still go in Ink Comparisons?

If Jane does a quick flex art review Montblanc Racing Green (which is no longer available) - where does she put it?

 

 

Yes, I do like like Jane, and I like Art, and I like that Jane and Art both like Flex nibs.  So, if Jane and Art are flexing those nibs in the same review then it's a CRV, but if Jane and Art individually create those reviews, they are regular Ink Reviews.

You should pin this Amber.

I will probably add it to Inky Thoughts also.

What if one person compares 10 inks, one of which is not, and has never been, commercially available? What if the reviews happens in the forest - do they make a sound?

Yep, very noisy!

 

 

So, is the purpose the comparison of the RCA inks? Then in comparisons.  If the primary focus the nonRCA ink and the others are there just to contrast the nonRCA ink, then it goes OUTSIDE the Bottle.
