I noticed a market watch thread for Amazon, but that's US based.

 

Therefore, thought I'd start a UK one :-)

Recently I purchased 5 x Oxford Campus A4 wire bound notepads for £10.50, plus a parker duo fold demi for £65.

 

Currently they have the A5 version of the Campus notepads at a good price - I find the paper to be very fountain pen friendly - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Oxford-Campus-Wirebound-Notebook-Assorted/dp/B00AUV70SE/ref=lp_5348989031_1_15?s=officeproduct&ie=UTF8&qid=1417788852&sr=1-15

Don't forget to do a Amazon.de and perhaps an Amazon.fr too.

 

Some nice offers sometimes on .de. Had a nice ST Dupont Ellipsis, and a few penpouches at very good prices...

True, I never think of looking at those. Even though I live closer to France than I do England..

 

This is a good price, 40% saving on a Parker Sonnet 18k Chiselled casing.

Do you find you have to search for the German description? i.e. Füllhalter. If so how do you search for "pen pouch"?

there seem to be some well priced pelicans on amazon.de. My french is far better than my german though so am struggling with that site a little.

UK Amazon are selling the Platinum President for £116. Over 50% off RRP (apparently).

 

Seems good for the price.

 

Ever since I bought my Waterman Carene for £50 and my Parker Duofold I've been an avid checker, even though i have no more funds for pens :P

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
    • Arkanabar
      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
