ORANGE ZEST Robert Oster Singature Ink
My first review here ;)
I really like Robert's inks. I like them in particular for a wide palette of colors, good price and good qualities. Robert is also a very nice guy ;)

Bottle is plastic, quite modest but I like her design. Its capacity is 50ml.

Rhodia dotpad
The color is well saturated, with a hint of red. It works perfectly in thin lines as well as in wider. Here I use it in nibs: Sailor H-M and Bexley's stub. Shading present in a broader line. Without shining. ;)
Properties good. The drying time is about 12 seconds od Rhodia dotpad, on other papers shorter. Good flow.
Some Oster's inks are a little dry, but Orange zest not.
Ink works well in fountain pens, I had the opportunity to use it for a long time. It's safe.
Here's a sample on various papers.
On Clairefontaine with Noodlers Apache.
Filofax notebook.

Oxford notebook in hard cover.
I like Orange Zest. I can recommend it. Oster has many other interesting oranges. Below the sample. The card has a few months already, so you can see if the color loses its intensity over time.

Oh, wow great comparison. Thank you.

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

      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
