Tl;dr VOTE DIAMINE
I am going to strongly encourage people to not vote for the luxury brands here, even if it means not voting for your favorite line of ink. Like the current J. Herbin drop, this drop is probably going to mean buying multiple bottles of ink, and buying multiple bottles of an expensive ink is still going to be a big purchase. Even with the discount, the overall cost may be prohibitive. On the other hand, buying cheaper inks in bulk can get us more ink for the money than possibly any of us have gotten before. Also, brands like Diamine (which is what I voted for, although De Atramentis or Private Reserve would work too) have such a variety of colors that there are going to be so many more options which is important especially when people have to make multiple choices. With the J. Herbin drop, there weren't even five ink bottles I wanted, but fewer people will have that problem if they have more options.
