I am celebrating 500 subs on YouTube and I have decided to host an ink swap! I would like to trade with ten people a selection of ink samples. Each person will receive from me:

  • Three random samples from my collection
  • One Hero 616
  • And one piece of Resin jewelry that has fountain pen ink inside.

You can either PM me or email me with:

  • A postal address
  • A few favorite colors
  • If you would like to participate in the secondary swap

Rules of the Secondary Swap:

I will email everyone who has decided to participate with a list of email addresses of every other Secondary Swap participant. It is up to you guys to confer with each other and decide who you would like to talk to and swap with. I will not be monitoring this, so be sure you feel comfortable giving out information at your own discretion. If you do not answer whether or not you want to participate, I will automatically assume you DO NOT want to participate.

I wanted to do this instead of a typical giveaway, to get more people in the fountain pen community talking with each other and sharing inks.

I have posted a YouTube video illustrating the rules as well:

I'm confused about the secondary ink swap. In the meantime, I'd love to have one of your resin items. Do I send you the otherwise unobtainable ink sample?

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

Basically, in the primary swap, ten people are trading with only me. In the secondary swap, I give the opportunity for those ten people to connect with each other for more swaps if they choose.

      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.

      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.

      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
