International Fountain Pen Day... Friday, November 3Rd

What's happening around "International Fountain Pen Day this year. It's coming up shortly and I, for one, have seen nothing about it mentioned. Did I miss something here on FPN?

 

I know one can find information at http://www.fountainpenday.org/ including what looks like a lot of sponsors (more Pen - Day deals???). It would be nice to hear if anyone is doing something really special or unique this year. Or, if you had a nice experience in the past.

 

Thanks for sharing the information.

The first couple of years they did it, there were online writing and drawing contests on the FP Day website (I was one of the runner up winners one year, but then the next year didn't make it past the first cut). The grand prize the year I got one of the runner up prizes was a custom bound journal from TM Lee, and the judging was by popular vote. (IIRC correctly, I came in third).

I think it's awesome that the Ohio Pen Show coincides with FP Day this year.

As well as the discounts listed on the sponsors' page, and The Writing Desk's offer as detailed by Beechwood also in Market Watch, Cult Pens is offering 10% off all orders, code FPDay10.

 

Happy Fountain Pen Day!

I chose my user name years ago - I have no links to BBS pens (other than owning one!)

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      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.
