It would have bee really helpful if I could see what books are available from each author before voting. We're not choosing our favourite authors, but those authors whose books we want to buy.

Agreed, esp. since not all an author's books are always made available.

Howsomever, FL hasn't wanted to do this in the past, so...

I'm getting the 2016 page now.  In two different browsers, one of which has never been to the site before.

Plus I got the 2017 page last night (but it wasn't working right then).

We've taken the Logos March Madness site offline while we resolve the issue that has been causing the internal server error for many users.  It should be up and running again in the next few hours.

The has been asked for on many occasions..one of those case where FL fails to listen to its customers....meanwhile I still haven't been able to log into 2017 event as Glen indicated its now offline for maintenance.

I too would find it helpful to know which books I am actually voting on. Right now I have to search for each author individually, see which of their books are available in Logos, filter out the ones I already own, and then make a guess regarding which of the remaining ones might be included in the sale. I am thankful Logos does March Madness, and hope they continue to do so in the fuure.

I'm just speculating, but perhaps FL can't state in advance which books can be offered? Perhaps a specific book could be offered at 30% off if its author was eliminated early, but not at 70% off, if the author wins the championship?

Either way, there's a lot of effort that goes into making this possible, to give us an opportunity to vote like this. Thankful for the higher discounts that this sale brings us!

I would guess that if the author loses early, there are more books than if the author makes it deep into the competition.

That makes a lot of sense to me.

I have always thought this too but it does nothing to resolve the issue, only upfront honesty from FL will stop the need for us speculate on this issues.

I never gave that a thought. I've been voting to get my author with the greatest number of potential books into the finals. If that's how it works, then I've been shooting myself in the foot.

Do they add books at the end of each round that weren't available at the beginning of MM? Has anyone noticed anything like that?

I think I'll try voting against my favorite author now, not that 1 vote is going to make any difference anyway.

Yes! Voting for the authors whose book we want to buy, not favorite.

Several of the candidates have Mobile Ed courses and if I remember correctly, some Mobile Ed courses were available in March Madness last year. This would be a good way to get significant discounts on Mobile Ed courses

This isn't working for me. Saying offline for maintenance and voting will resume soon. Is this down?

Yes Nathan, it is regrettably unavailable at this time.

Just tried to vote AGAIN, since the first few tries yesterday were unsuccessful and this time was no different. Still unable to vote. Tried on IE and Firefox. I still get last year's brackets.
