    I think it's convenient for anyone who need single font.

    They don't need to go to Font Collection topic, scroll up and down to find font they need and they don't see anything because the font they need don't show in it. And with the search result, there's nothing, do you think they will post request for that font?

    When they need foundry folder, they can go to that and download. But sometimes you just need that font, not foundry. You need a font, but you must download a folder with many fonts. You need a font some KB but you must download a folder some MB. It's not convenient.

    that's an easy question: to get a higher post-count. it's getting better, but there are still a lot of nice fonts with very high restrictions. How to get those needed posts? Reposting Fonts from Collections is a less obvious style of spamming.

    The Problem is nicely described here:
    http://www.printroot.com/forum/f24/those-complaining-about-free-font-posts-spamming-requests-so-31816/

    And then, there are a lot of requests for single Fonts also contained in the "ntintis collection".

    I don't think higher post count is important, because if you have more than 40 posts, you can download most of links shared, except some topic requires high post count (Eg: 100).

    I simply think that I want to share for who need single font, don't need to waste time to go to collection topic, download a foundry's folder n MB just to have a single font. Some people when they use search and no result for this, they will post request. It's not good way. Collection pack is just a collection of someone's fonts.

    Also, the problem with collections (well, for me) is that often there's no indication of exactly what is in the collection, especially when you do a search for a specific font name; therefore single font posts can be useful. Although I guess that is also what the font request section is for.

    I think it's, for users' sake, the usability of finding font in our forum, as I see the way single font post in well formatted form + preview pics etc... is more 'human' and I like it. But well, can not forget ntintis's merit.

    Maybe the post count is the reason of some users, but when one has enough post count, he should think for others as well.

    Yes, that's all I want to say, my friend Post count is not everything. It's just sharing for who need single font.

    It's hard to imagine that someone would join a font-based forum who isn't an addict. Seems like a lot of steps to take to get just one font, but I suppose some people feel desperate ~

    I agree with this. I also find that usually the one font I want is missing!

    I really don't like collections personally...
    single fonts saves a lot of time and it is organized at my opinion.
