Thanks, Smug. It's getting there. :D

No worries. You just need to copy the (for example) [IMG]http://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/uploads/imgs/fpn_1580377964__20200108_132053.jpg[/img] bit into the text of your post now, to embed the inline image. :)

Thanks Smug,

 

Got it fixed - thanks for your help. :thumbup:

 

 

FWIW, I took that pic for a pen review I've been thinking about doing for the Cross Bailey Light.

Hi 5 Cavaliers,

 

I'll try. I've tried posting images on here before, but they were all rejected for being too big; maybe now that I'm a supporter and have a larger photo gallery available to me, I'll have better luck. We'll see.

 

When I was on here before, I used to use Photobucket, but they charge now.

 

You want to see the Quink, or a comparison?

 

 

Hi Corniche -

 

It looks like you have solved your image posting issues. Hooray!

 

Yes, I would love to see a comparison of Quink and Waterman Serenity Blue. I imagine others would as well. Thank you for offering.

I don't think whether someone is or isn't a paid-up "supporter" is the issue there.

 

I suggest you try this: http://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/blog/2/entry-22-the-images-upload-tab-what-is-it-how-to-use-it/

 

Thank you so much for your assistance in this matter. It took me sometime to figure out how to upload my photos. One of the things I love of FPN is that people are willing to help others in a whole myriad of ways. Thanks again!

I agree with corniche about everybody having a bottle of Waterman (Florida Blue) Serenity Blue. When my Visconti Homo Sapiens was not writing well after filling it with J Herbin Cafe des Iles, I cleaned and filled it with the Waterman (Florida Blue). Better writing. Relief. My brother let me know that this ink was the one to use in a problematic pen. If it wrote, pen is OK.

 

I did not know it had a red sheen until someone mentioned it at pen club.

Thank you for posting your comments. This helps everyone. Would you be able to post a written sample for us?

Hi 5 Cavaliers,

 

Thank you for all the compliments. I'm hoping to get a writing sample together for you guys this weekend.

Hi Everyone,

 

It's upside down - don't know why, but no matter:

The HS has a different ink in it now. I could take a photo of how it wrote when I used it to make a pen and ink notation in a notebook.

 

This is upside down (I tried twice) but here is the photo

Does anyone know how to delete photos from the Upload section?

It's not an ink review, though, and certainly does not fit with the stated purpose of what posts in the Ink Reviews section of the forum is about.

 

Just like Tom Kellie, I'd have thought this fits in the Co-Razy-Views section, but since the O.P. expressed a belief that it's not quite the same thing and elected knowingly to put it in Inky Thoughts, I'd imagine it's up to moderators to decide which of those two sections this really belongs.

I’m having some unusual issues with trying to edit my above post. I wanted to replace the photo by deleting the link, and putting in the new one. A screen I’ve never seen opened up. Here is, I hope, a photo that is right side up. In good light, I saw red sheen on the printed letters.

I figured out how I held my phone to get it upside down, then oriented the phone the opposite way. You have to hold it sideways, or where it is widest (in photo speak Landscape). When I take photos holding the phone in what would be Portrait mode, my photos post here on their sides.

 

Now I have 5 or 6 photos in the upload area of this same image. Sigh.

Okay, thanks; I think I got it.

I think when I held the iPhone right to get the photo, the button to touch to take the photo was to the right.

Okay, great! That cinches it; I had the button on the left. Thanks. 👍

Dear bizhe, A Smug Dill and Tom Kellie -

 

I really appreciate your comments. I was just trying an experiment. It isn't an Ink Review, perhaps not even a Co-Razy-View, so where does it go?

 

I really welcome your comments. My hope is that anyone could post a Community Review and that everyone would feel comfortable to add their comments - preferably hand-written comments using the ink in question.

 

I will ask the one of the moderator extraordinaires to look at this and put it where they feel it should belong.

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d
    • A Smug Dill
      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
