Subbu,

That is one extensive set of imagery on the pen. Glad to have someone interpret and explain the iconography. I enjoy the wide center band, and the clip is elegant. Thank you.

The iconography is based on Lord venkateswara, a hindu deity. The temple of lord venkateswara is the most visited religious shrine in the world, and also one of the richest religious institutions. The temple is located in south india, on a hill called tirumala. The 3 symbols belong to him. There is a discus on the left - called the “sudarshana chakra” - which represents the wheel of time (time is considered cyclic in hindu mythology). The conch (panchajanya) represents a cosmic sound, which represents creation.  The central symbol is the 3 pronged tilak...representing birth, life and death all converging together. Assembled together, these symbols mean that he is the absolute master of both space and time.... birth, human existence and death are simply a manifestation of his will. 

     This would be a very symbolic pen for Hindus.

      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
