deds, no decision has been made yet as to whether this qualifies as an identification for the Leaderboard. This post keeps the thread active for future consideration.
I'm really bad at identifying fonts. The only reason I have 1 ID is because I referred the designer to Luc Devroye for font hosting. All of the ones I recognize have already been identified by other people. Maybe I could identify some Scriptoriums, but only the obvious ones.
My cat can identify Cooper Black. Different weights count as different fonts for the Leaderboard. Impact has only one weight, so it doesn't matter if it's bold or italic.
About half of the new threads in the Font Identification forum have begun in the past month, and the other half covered the 5½ months since the new forum opened in March.
Week Five update: (As at October 6, 2010 14:56)
The following identifications were disqualified, because they had been previously identified:
deds: Brush Script
daaams: P22 Da Vinci, Candice, Arial. Arial Bold
Rodolphe: Inked God, Waltograph, Cooper Black
The following additional adjustments were made:
daaams awarded 1 point for Futura Extra Bold from this thread:
koeiekat awarded 1 point for Rondo in this thread:

I think "Coloniacs" are also known as "Friends of Enemas".
You don't install the font in a word processing app. You install it in your folder for installed fonts, and select it in the wp app.
OpenOffice.org is both a website, and a suite of open source, free alternatives to the Microsoft Office suite. It's not specific to Linux. Writer is the app similar to MS Word.
All of Dieter Steffman's fonts are free.
21326, if you scroll down the page in Font Discussions forum, you will see a thread called "Looking at each others fonts". The discussions from other people who asked for feedback in the forums about their fonts is in that thread. If this thread disappears, it means that it was moved/merged into that thread, because of redundancy. When you do your next font, you should use that thread for commentary requests.
Nice page on Luc Devroye's site, by the way.
