Pif - Caran D'ache Turquoise Green Ink Giveaway

Recommended Posts

It's time for another Ink Giveaway PIF!

I am giving away a nearly full bottle of Caran d'Ache Turquoise Green ink. This is an older ink that is discontinued. I think Caran d'Ache renamed this ink as "Caribbean Sea" ink before it was discontinued, and it has a devoted following.

Here are the rules:

1) United States only.

2) Winners of my previous PIFs (Levenger, OMAS, Rotring, J. Herbin, Montblanc inks) are not eligible for this PIF.

3) Everyone who posts on this thread saying they want the ink through Saturday, February 11, 2017 is eligible.

4) On Sunday, Februrary 12, 2017 I'll post here to close the PIF and everyone ahead of me in the thread will be entered. I'll select a winner using the random number generator at random.org. I'll list the winner here, and contact them via PM to set up shipment.

5) I will ship to the winner for free, in exchange for a letter or postcard from you containing handwritten samples of your five favorite ink colors. Or, you can pay for shipping, whichever you prefer. (I will ship via USPS).

OR if you will be attending the LA Pen Show on public day February 19, we can meet and I can give you the ink in person.

6) Winners who don't respond to my PM within three days after close of the PIF will forfeit their winning. I'll draw again to find another winner.

Here are some photos and a writing sample of the ink.

      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
