I can't answer the poll since it requires a vote in all three areas and two of the questions are ones I can't honestly answer.

 

My favorite ST Dupont model so far is likely the Gatsby in either the slim or oversize forms but I have yet to find an ST Dupont model that I did not like.

 

I don't think there can be a correct answer to the second question. All of the ST Dupont pens are great from a technology point of view. The Montparnasse is likely the most complex but complexity does not always mean better.

 

I haven't owned any of the pens in the last category so cannot address that question at all.

I own several ST Dupont Montparnesse pens. I find them easy to use, not complex at all. They are easy to maintain and keep clean. Best part of these pens are the Chinese lacquer on them. They warm to the hand. They are all beautifully made. They are always on, never failed me once.

My favourite one is the red one below. A vendor in France told me once that he has only seen a couple of them. I am so lucky to be the proud owner.

How can a  fake Montparnesse be spotted? Are there lots of fakes?

      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.
    • 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
