Thanks for the review.

Still trying to make up my mind about whether or not I like this yellow a green....

working my way through a sample now

 

awesome ink, well behaved, works even in my dry stubbed Baoer 388 (the green lizard one, of course)

 

thanks for the thorough review

I use it in whimsical cards and in regular rotation for my journal writing--it breaks up any dull expanse of prose

Love the review! This is one of my favorites and you presented it very nicely. Thanks for sharing.

Great review of an ink that has been one of my favourites for several years. It has a lovely vintage (perhaps antique?) look on the page and, for me, works best from a pen with a generous Medium or Broad nib. I think that this can be seen from your lovely writing sample. The one thing that I would disagree with is that the colour is drab, the gold element is too bright for that - to my eyes at least.

 

Thanks again for an excellent review.

Ordering a bottle of this, Verdigris and Helianthos with my next pen purchase. Looking forward to it even more now, thank you!

Yeah, the gold in this does for the green what the gold in Noodler's Golden Brown (which I also love) does for the brown.

Thanks for the great review!

 

I absolutely love Alt-Goldgrun. It's one of those inks that is very unique and catches the eye of even non-FP people.

So many inks, so little time...

      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

      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
