Fonts is a big part of this forum! I agree for a new look on it
It seems a lot of fonts are exchanged here already but to the process is very disorganized. It would be great if it was easier to reply to requests without starting a new thread. A few changes would make it a lot better. I also have a decent sized but disorganized collection & I would love to share them if any needed what I happen to have.
I even have requests filling material, but since I'm a newbie can't share them with the world :( so i agree with the font exchange forum.
the font collection here is definitely of the main attractions of the forum so a feature like that would certainly be nice addition. an organization/cleaning of the font section would be great as well considering how many links are no longer available
I would suggest we create a forum section: type. Inside each type-foundry gets a thread. Inside that thread we collect the uploads accordingly to the foundry and/or designer.
Maybe a second section for requests?
In that way we could conquer the mess :-)
(and maybe a Thread for full collections? Aio (All-in-)?

I think the problem with neatly organizing the fonts section is how easily Google picks it up, and then it won't last very long after it starts popping up in all font searches.
Agreed with the main idea. The font section is messy because there are requests and request fillings together. Wouldn't it be better to answer the request just with the filling but no other posts allowed? (Or maybe that have been tried already...)
i'm a new member of this forum and i'm glad there are people who share my concerns. i noticed there are people posting free fonts which are easily downloadable from, say, dafont site and they flood the thread to up their posts. and yes i also agree that we should have a separate font request thread 'cause it gets confusing.
p.s. and what's with "o_n_e" getting omitted from the post? *confused*
And very popular too...because of that.
