HI all! I am about to reach a 500 sub milestone on my YouTube channel, and I am wondering what I should do to celebrate. Last time, when I reached 100, I gave away four Jinhao 599s and some limited edition Ink.

 

This time I would like to have multiple winners, but my budget is also kind of limited. I was kind of thinking about giving away one of the limited 2015 Lamy Safari Lime Greens, or the New Jinhao 159s. What do you guys think? Are there any staples you guys would like to see in a giveaway?

 

Should I even do a giveaway at all? Are there any sort of community run pen-related events that you guys can think of or have participated in before? I do like giveaways, but I would also like to try and have more community engagement with this event.

 

Thanks in advance for your ideas!

I think most people will be grateful for whatever giveaway you decide to run. My personal thoughts on the options, FWIW: I'd probably enter for a Lamy Safari if it were in a color I liked, because I have no Lamy pens, but that lime green color is really hard for me to like. I might enter for a Jinhao 159, but I already have two 250s so I'd have to think about it. Stationary and ink samples might be nice, though I'm not too much into trying various papers. Bottled ink seems like it would be popular; I've never used it before, so I might go for that assuming I liked the color. A few samples of bottled ink seems like a good idea, because it gives people a little variety; if I liked the colors, I'd probably enter, since it would give me a nice way to get started with trying bottled ink. Since others have suggested that I try using bottled ink, the ink sampler might be my preferred choice, but again, anything would be appreciated. I hope this is of some help.

Thanks very much for your input! I think I might do some combination of everything and do a bit of a hosted ink swap with a group of people. I might include some Jinhao 599's in the packages as well.

You have some lovely stationery in the US that many people in other parts of the world can't get. So I think that would be a good idea as a PIF.

 

I managed to try a couple of sheets of Neenah paper this way, that I wouldn't have been able to try otherwise.

Stationery would be especially nice! It'd be quite nice yo try out different papers and matching envelopes.

"Science fiction is an existential metaphor, that allows us to tell stories about the human condition. Isaac Asimov once said: 'Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today but the core of science fiction, its essence has become crucial to our salvation, if we are to be saved at all."

Surely you would someone happy with a bottle of ink. One you don't use. Or, one you consider is underestimated.

I'm kinda in this mind. If you scheduled a livestream or something, that could be pretty fun. I've never seen your channel before today, but I watched a few videos and I like your style, I'd definitely participate if I knew when.

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      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.
