I admin a collective of steampunk-themed writers in a roleplaying group that's been going since 2012. Unfortunately, many of the images we've used in the forums and pages related to our group were hosted on ImageShack, way back when it was still a free service. When they switched to being a pay service, all the old images hosted there were "grandfathered in" and continued to be hosted for free. Well, recently, they decided to not do that anymore and all our old images went bye bye. Once upon a time, I had everything backed up on my PC, but a power surge fried that computer long ago. Fortunately, through emails and our wiki, we've collectively managed to scrape together most of the important images. One thing we've lost, though, is all my nicely-stylized headings, which were written in a beautiful, free font I downloaded on that old PC years ago and of which I've long since forgotten the name. I'm pretty sure I found it linked in a forum post here, so I was hoping that someone else might have the same font, remember the name, recognize it, or know how I can find out the name and download it again. Of course, I could always find a new font for my headings, but I was really quite fond of this one and would love to have it back if at all possible. The only surviving example we've come across was the wordmark logo that would appear in the corner of our wiki: [imghttp://img3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb5/nsvapor/images/8/89/Wiki-wordmark.png[/img]

Did you just go PSSSSSSST at me or have I just sprung a leak?

There's a whole collection of fonts as a downloadable file, somewhere in these threads. Steampunk-themed. Just don't remember where...

Agh! That's a gorgeous font. I see it says free for personal use, but I can't find a purchase link for commercial use anywhere! This saddens me.

Doing a little digging, it would appear that the font was designed by someone going by the name of designstation. It looks like he/she is on DeviantArt, so it might be worth dropping a line to http://designstation.deviantart.com/.

Downloading the font and looking in the zip file, I would have expected to see a copy of the licence, but it is missing...
