Paper & Pen Paraphernalia Reviews and Articles


Recommended Posts

No disrespect intended, and I'm not complaining, but have wandered for a long time, so here it is ... Wouldn't be more convenient to simply have one and not both. Couldn't one be consolidated into the other? I've read the intent for both, but I never know which to post to, or from which to search, etc, etc. I don't know, it just seems like a level of granularity that's not needed. Just thought I'd ask.

I think the forum arrangement appears slightly redundant in some regards due to the low volume of traffic. If the two forums were high-traffic like "Writing Instruments" and "Fountain Pen Reviews" it would be immediately clear as to why there was a general discussion forum and a review forum.

 

To clarify:

 

If you have a product review, product brief / press release or article (your own or a link to one) concerning paper, stationery, pen storage, writings accessories and related office supplies - please post in the "Paper & Pen Paraphernalia Reviews and Articles" (P&PPRA) forum.

 

I think of P&PPRA as a reference / resource area. Someone might post a review that gets 2 replies - but 500 people will read it and benefit from the information that FPN member has taken the time to prepare and post for us.

 

If you want to ask questions, discuss, show off something cool, or alert members to a sale of paper, stationery, pen storage, writings accessories and related office supplies - please post in the "Paper & Pen Paraphernalia" (P&PP) forum.

 

E.g.: If I post: "I bought some great 32lb drawing paper today that works beautifully with fountain pens, check it out at XYZ store." - this is not a product review, product brief or article, so I'd post in the P&PP forum. If I write a detailed review of the XYZ paper purchase, I'd put it in the P&PPRA forum.

 

I have been meaning to create a "Review Index" for the Paper & Pen Paraphernalia Reviews and Articles forum, which might make it more useful, and also post a review guide. I'll get to this soon.

 

Suggestions and improvement ideas are welcomed. :)

I don't have a lot of spare time, but PM me and I'll see what I can do to help you find actual reviews of paper/notebooks.

Well, I've explained it as best I can. I was only chosen to moderate these two forums - the Admin Team created and named them.

 

I suggest your send your queries about the two Paper & Pen Paraphernalia forums to the Admin Team for a more in-depth response.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
