You might try the Blender Stack Exchange for this question :)

comment Designing a paper plane for the game
@Vinand - if you're interested in a Mac-only vector program that's cheaper than Illustrator, give Sketch a try...I haven't personally used it but it's gotten good reviews. Inkscape is the most well-known open-source alternative for vector drawing, but I find it hard to use.

comment How can I describe the font I am looking for or looking at?
Good answer. I posted mine because the classifications follow the history and evolution of type, and that gives a good context into what makes a typeface look the way it does, even though fonts don't always fit neatly into them. It's a little bit like the difference between Grammy award categories and Pandora's classifications.

This is probably a better question for Stack Overflow.

comment I'm looking for this gothic / blackletter font (or a very similar one)
Wow, that's an interesting one! Where did you find this guy from? Did you scan it in? The rough edges on the 'o' glyphs look slightly different; I was curious if that was because of scanning or if it was OpenType alternative glyphs.

comment What factors make a campaign go viral?
Great points - a lot more succinct than mine! To me, there's nothing more annoying than a viral campaign that feels like it's supposed to be a viral campaign, or links that feel like I'm being manipulated into clicking them.

@DA01 - That'd be fair. I feel the same way about words like "phablet" and "vlog".

Nice post, and welcome to GD.SE! I'll argue about fonts if you'd like :) I would contend that the ClearType fonts are as good as anything that's out there for the screen. They suffer from ubiquity, but not from a lack of quality.

comment Font Similar to Casablanca Book Condensed
@Howdy_McGee If I could downvote the ufont link, I would. There's no way that download is approved by the Font Bureau (the people who made the font). Someone here is welcome to correct me but that's almost certainly a pirated file.

comment Billing software for freelancers
Their iOS app claims to have some offline capabilities for time tracking. The Mac app doesn't let you start or stop timers while offline, but it'll run if you lose your connection. But yeah if you want to handle reports and stuff offline this isn't your choice.

comment Do you know what font this is?
Without doing any research, they look like a kind-of-squished Gill Sans Bold.

comment Tools for *lossy* PNG compression?
I just discovered ImageAlpha and am loving it! It takes away pretty much the only reason I ever used Fireworks :) I was going to share the resource on this site but I see you already did. So, just commenting to affirm the usefulness of this answer.
