I am not going to underbid it and cause it to languish.

But this is happening!!!

I just hate when people take words out of immediate context. Quote the full sentence, for goodness sake Angry

What I said: "If I truly want the resource, I am not going to underbid it and cause it to languish."

there are always "bottom feeders" - just look at Walmart on day after Cristmas. However, how is "managed" bottom price keeping a title from languishing? Aren't there titles under the current model that are slower than molasses too? In my understanding, by setting their price "higher" (than my idea of a fair price) Logos is losing potential customers and contributes to languishing.

I think some of the Community Pricing works would benefit from being broken up into smaller packages. At 14,000 pages this one is quite large.

The Princeton Review is 82,000 pages and would get published much quicker if it would be broken into smaller packages. It would be good if they started with the newer editions that have Vos and Machen as some of the featured writers.

Generally well-said Eva. (note I quoted your full comment to avoid your wrathWink) One phrase that I don't think was very kind was calling some people "bottom feeders". To me this sounds sort of derogatory when at least some of those folks are simply trying to stretch their budget.

I have a rule - if I do it too, it's not offensive Stick out tongue. How would you call them?

I should also clarify that I personally was not offended but I think some folks maybe. How about calling us "deal-grabbers" or "dollar-stretchers". Of course we must be careful not to fall into the category of simply being "greedy".

Wayne's point is ABSOLUTELY CORRECT.

In addition to his points, there's the odd consumer behavior.

An item for $70 is too much!

Three items for $23 is quite affordable.

Proof: read member-comments on how many resources they have bids on.

Yes. And I think Logos knows this.

One thing some here are not considering...

I've looked at this collection a few times, and each time I do I always come to the same conclusion...

I just don't want it.

Honestly, I probably wouldn't get it even if it were only $10.

ASROCK x570 Creator, AMD R9 3950x, HyperX 64gb 3600 RAM, Asus Strix RTX 2080 ti, 2tb m.2 Seagate Firecuda SSD (x2) ...and other mechano-digital happiness.

4. when there are enough bids to cover 95% of production, why do users have to beg to fine-tune the scale to $5 or $1 increments? Why not make it by default? Why is $50 price the lowest option for this collection? In a fair system there should be prices to the left and to the right of what most users would pay.  It should be a bell curve. This is not the first collection that things are skewed somewhat.

It's hardly worth $50 to me, but considering the number of volumes, $50 is a good starting bid.
