I know everyone will have different opinions on this (and some may strongly disagree with me), but I just want to see how many people would like Logos to revert back to placing specific resources up against each other rather than authors.

I, for one, do not like voting blind. I have no idea which of the author's work will be discounted. For instance, Darrell Bock's commentaries on Luke were discounted, but not his commentary on Acts. I understand that doing this based on author allows more resources to be discounted, but what's the point if I'm voting on the mere "hope" one will be the one I need? These last couple years Logos March Madness has been a disappointment to me.

If you agree, give a thumbs up.

Yes

You're not the only one. I don't know half the authors and it wouldn't help anyway!

I agree too, many of the Authors that progress I already own most of their resources, so often I vote for those I don't have many works by just to see what pop's up.

If I could vote for specific authors or even collections I would be be more likely to buy something I want.

Imagine these types of collections:

Pauline LiteratureVs Wisdom Literature

Old Testament Surveys Vs New Testament Surveys

Greek Resources Vs Hebrew Resources

and even some fixed sets such as

NICOT/NICNT Vs WBC

The 'catch' here is not knowing which works of each author will be made available. It is voting blind. So Yes to the suggestion.

Since March has two college basketball tournaments: NCAA and NIT, wonder about two Logos tournaments ?

1) Current March Madness format with Author Voting (blind to which resources would be on sale).

2) Resource Invitational that has 64 resources (previous March Madness format)

Wonder about some resources being in both tournaments ? could lead to different discounts.  If purchase one at lower discount that subsequently appears for a higher discount, wonder about credit for difference ?

Isn't that the way voting has always been? We cast our votes "hoping" we will get what we need only to discover we get something else. (Politically speaking here.)

Yes to the suggestion. I was disappointed to discover only part of June Hun't counselling works are included in the sale. I already have all the works by the leading authors. It's no fun wading through 150 works to see if I already have them.

If discounts were stackable, have potential for some free resources, especially for resource(s) that advance to Final Four in both tournaments.

Yes, 75% + 75% sounds like 150% [they pay us 50% for taking the resource.]

But it would most likely be something like: Step one take 75% [new price 25%] then take another 75% [final 93.75%] Sad
