Dude, I like what you are doing with the Fonts page. Keep up the good work! Elcool (talk)(contribs) 18:41, 20 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Yes, me too. That takes some serious skill to be able to identify fonts like that. Good prize! --DorianGray
I also took notice of the lovely contributions you've made on the Fonts article. I've always wondered about the font "Alba" and considered adding it some time ago, but I wasn't quite confident enough to contribute. Anyway, let me be the first (heh) to commend you on your efforts. Excellent work! —THE PAPER PREEEOW 19:17, 22 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Oh, well, I'm just lucky. I'm a bit of a free font addict; all but one of the fonts I've added are either on my computer now, or were once on a computer previously owned by me. As for the other one (Action Is), I just happened to recognize it due to it being on so many free font sites.

I also already had Ahnberghand. Heh. -- Xyzzyka 03:50, 22 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Dear Xyzzyka Songlantern Gruefrotzer, do you like graphic design in addition to drawing, or are you just intrigued by fonts? If you should ever find yourself stumped, may I recommend What the Font and, to a lesser degree, Identifont. Both have been invaluable to me (I work for a commercial printing company). Again good jorb! — It's dot com 04:31, 22 Sep 2005 (UTC)
Well, I'm taking graphic design, since it's a way to make money at drawing. ;) ...I think I tried those two once, but couldn't get the answers right...I was trying to find the font used for the logo of the webcomic Megatokyo. Anyway after several days of travel and travail, it turned out the font I was looking for was not only on my computer, but the first font I had ever downloaded: Holstein. Madness, I say, madness. :P -- Xyzzyka 17:54, 22 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Xyzzyka, you ain't the only fontaholic on teh wiki. I'm having a problem adding a font to the page because I can't bring on the pic. It's the word "Homestar" on Main Page 4 (on Homestar's shirt); the font is Brush Script MT. If you could get this 4 me, that would be gr8. LePorello / T / C 02:02, 2 February 2006 (UTC) P.S. Check out abstractfonts.com for free fonts. I've gotten a lot from there.

Update of Brush Script MT: It's also in Senorial Day. LePorello / T / C 03:27, 4 February 2006 (UTC)
