Why should Paypal cover your costs?

 

Because that is one of the benefits of settling payment for the order by PayPal, in accordance with its policy.

I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present, when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable; and link to third-party content where I can, when I make a claim or refute a statement of fact in a thread. If there is something you can verify for yourself, I entreat you to do so, and judge for yourself what is right, correct for valid. I may be wrong, and my position or say-so is no more authoritative and carries no more weight than anyone else's here.

I was told that was a unit reserved for a customer who'd cancelled his order

Can't imagine why anyone would have done that... ;)

I'm guessing that was ordered prior to 19 April, given I made a post on that day advising someone else here what I saw in stock.

A shipment containing three pens and three bottles of ink arrived this morning. It contained fewer items than I was expecting, and some of what I expressly communicated to the retailer (more than once!) that I expected to see is not among the contents.

 

I feel my patience is really being seriously tried. I do my best to be explicit, specific and precise to leave little room for error operationally, but it just isn't working with this mob. 😡

I feel your pain. Having said I wouldn't use them again, I decided to give one more chance. That was over two months ago and I'm still waiting (having already cancelled one out of the two orders). I think they really might have had their last chance now.

Ink Stained Wretch

I am waiting for a "Rosetta Explorer Fountain Pen." It's inexpensive, black and maybe it will even work. There's a photograph of it here.

 

USPS has been informed that it's coming their way. No prediction on when I might get the thing.

 

Eagerly waiting :puddle:.

On a sacred quest for the perfect blue ink mixture!

About 6 weeks ago I bought a Visconti Medici Rose Savrano in medium nib.

 

It came and had the thinnest medium euro nib I think I've ever seen. Or perhaps my expectations were just that it would be a wet, bold line. It was more like a Pelikan fine I have in my collection. I was very underwhelmed. It then began to run dry every two or three lines. I couldn't get it to start again without priming the feed (a somewhat risky thing with a vac filler). I notified the seller the pen wouldn't write and asked to send it back, and while they had it, I'd like a broad nib swapped in and the wetness set to a specific level, which I detailed out very thoroughly and gave a writing sample with another pen that matches what I expected, provided the thickness of the line I desired, as measured by Richard Binder's chart on nib sizes (and said chart was printed out and included in the box for them to reference), etc.

 

It's been a month and it is now on its way to me, due to arrive on Friday. Strangely, I'm not even excited to receive it. I hope it blows me away. I' concerned that it won't. If it doesn't, I may well ask to just return it. For all the effort I and the seller have put in, I certainly hope I love it.

 

If it goes back, I may never buy another Visconti.

It's hard work to tell which is Old Harry when everybody's got boots on.

My Nakaya Neo-standard is in the mail from visiting M. Masuyama’s spa for nibs.  I’m far too excited!

Pilot Custom 74 Grenadine with a fine nib arrives tomorrow!

 

That one might be my exact next Pilot order. I am very interested in this new color.

It looks gorgeous in pictures! It just got to my local post office, so if I can go pick it up I'll DM you a picture if you'd like.

Sounds great!

 

You could probably post it here, too. I doubt anyone would mind too much.

Bunch of Jinhao’s, Leonardo Magico, Leonardo Momento Zero Mango, special edition Magico from Stile e Stile and a Visconti Van Gogh Wheatfield with Crows. 
 

In short, the bug has bitten again after seriously doubting my collection (and selling a bunch).

 

Also wondering whether I should sell a couple of pens to get a Nakaya Dorsal Fin. 

No signature. I'm boring that way.

      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.
