    Smile Non fountain pen ink reviews...

    It's hard to find reviews for most dip pen inks. Or at least visual cues to know what they look like.

    I have several very interesting dip pen inks, which are truly remarkable in colour and depth....

    Can we post dip pen ink reviews in the ink review section?
    Or do we need to post them here?

    Or can Chrissy create a subsection for dip pen inks, in the ink review section?

    Because it's a fountain pen forum I would tend to suggest that ink reviews should be intended to be for fountain pen inks that members might need and look for information for. It's not like that many members use or are particularly interested in dip pen inks. It's quite niche.

    I'm not in favour of creating a subsection for dip pen inks in the regular ink review section. It's quite unwieldy as it is because it hasn't been properly set up by Eric so that it can be edited easily. Some pages are going to overflow due to strict number of character limits and then they will all need moving down as it is. It's almost only a workaround.

    The General Inky Goodness forum is a much more popular forum for views and posts: 31,017 posts compared to Ink Reviews 6,179 posts so many more members read General Inky Goodness anyway.

    Do you want the job Yazeh?

    Thanks Chrissy. That was my impression too.

    I simply wanted to post a comparative page with some written samples...
    Now I'm wondering if I should post it in the calligraphy section.... but it's more about inks that calligraphy...

    I thought about the calligraphy forum too as that's the speciality of dip pen inks. Inks are almost secondary for calligraphy writing with dip pens.
