bump! Ask Yourself: Do I want content = data? Will I go with things like base-packages or other bundled library additions where I pay for somewhat new (I'll return to the mattew of "somewhat new") content but spend multiple times more?
Maybe You are asking how can a public domain work have any value? Like has been stated this product is from a time in history that will not repeat itself. It is assembled in a way that will not be repeated. It represents History of Ideas. Well - think about that one if it didn't convince You yet: Do You now have a better or more efficient or cheaper way of digging into History of Ideas? Tracing ideas back in time can cost You. Is there any value to it? Well it's a scholarly approach - You are supposed to in many cases to be able to cite a resource that dates way back in time - if for nothing else then for the sheer value of the content You are producing. If History of Ideas has been dealt with it adds lasting value to Your article, a historical viewpoint, more references and makes it obvious You've put effort into the article.
Others? Well I would actually assume close to half of users would afford this Encyclopedia. If they personally want it may be another thing. But the fact is that it is highly sought for and not merely for the format but for content. And I would think a Verbum format outperforms any other format by a long shot.

What do You want then? Do You want graphic intense modules? - fills up the memory of Your tablet quickly. Do You want Biblical databases? - requires online presence and/or a powerful desktop interface. Do You want devotionals, sermons or lay-friendly exposition and application? - just wastes Your time compared to facts - even "dated" facts.

How much is today's world worth compared to the world of the early 20th century? Escape the alarm, buzz, short-sightedness, self-fulfillment, and lack of frenzy about serious things of the 21st century. No, what You buy ten Years from now under this brand will on an average still not be newer than early 21st century - so why will You pay up for merely somewhat new content anyway? To add to that - the copyrighted books You will pay for will not add as much quantity data for a couple of hundred $ (the price of the bid + earning back as much.to use for other purposes of Yours which I grant also deserve to be spent on and have merit and I respect that You have necessary and sought-for expenses).

So You are perhaps supposed to be up-to-date about Your field. That is fine and I understand it. Then You can afford reading old data from some areas other than Your field.

So You don't have to be a historicist to place a community-pricing order on this, and with the notification You will get by email the withdrawal from Your debit card will not blow up in Your face all of a sudden.

What I'm trying to say - this is a risk-free order of lasting value: So bid high! High bids count much more.
Please FL produce this resource! Find a way - if You want to You can. See the suggestions for L8 at: https://community.logos.com/forums/p/148421/946723.aspx#946723 ... note that resources in Bronze-Gold base-packages don't necessarily get used - a $400 price point for an upgrade is mid-level, below that is low-end. Why would something that is low-end be expected to absolutely blow our minds?

Find the fascination for what exactly people knew - over a hundred Years ago! Being able to look up what they knew back then - that is precision.

If You in today's world want to brag You have to be a specialist. With constant news-feed and rumours everyone is supposed to be up-to-date about most lay-friendly things. You can't compete with a billion English-speaking people about current knowledge.
Tell people how advanced You know for a fact a society over a Century ago was! With references to something else, something more concrete, than tabloid sensational articles, mere trending opinions on Facebook and Twitter, and TV-kind-of-news. I would rather go with worse internet access, than without Encyclopedia Britannica 1911-Edition! It is famous and the most representative source from before things really started to change: https://www.logos.com/product/33266/encyclopedia-britannica

You can quickly save a few hundred $ with a slower internet connection and wiser computer hardware choices (I would go with AMD CPU:s, new or used ones).

A trending video clip or sensational scientific discovery is famous only because of the total number of clicks - and Your click is only one in tens of millions when contesting for today's current knowledge! You may stay on top of most things and it may even be fairly effortless and fun to talk about.
Fairly effortless and fun to talk about is also when Encyclopedia Britannica 1911-Edition will be released! Until then: Keep Your bids in!

I appreciate your efforts to get more bids. I too would like to see this in Logos but, after placing my bid in August of 2013 it still only sits at around 10%. It's a bit sad to ponder. Sad

Why has this one not been pulled when others that had the same or more interest but still lagged were pulled?

I was wondering the same thing! Unless Faithlife forces it through I can't see this going anywhere.
