The problem is that they don't list the regular price, making it seem like the prepub price is the regular price.

Problem fixed for most of the books. Hopefully they're working on the last ones.

Yet a bit of improvement while I slept: most of the 40% off books now have a "Limited time sale!" warning. But Scripture and Tradition: What the Bible Really Says is still missing both that and a Regular Price, and at least one more book is also still missing the warning. Plus it's got a typo in the author name: Typo in Encountering John: The Gospel in Historical, Literary, and Theological Perspective.

What's going on here? Not only is this still not fixed, but now Reading the Bible with Martin Luther: An Introductory Guide has lost the Regular price as well, although I'm 99.9% sure it was there yesterday...

The typo is fixed, though.

The system has sent out emails to all the bidders, too. You'll need to send another one, to explain the error.

Still no e-mail...

Plus I'm wondering if there isn't another 'glitch' with the Oxyrhynchus Papyri (vols. 1–15). How did it get that high all of a sudden?

It's now at about 90%. I raised my bid to the current max some time ago. Spread the word:  more bids!

Please could you clarify for me, whether the Pre-pub colours on the gathering interest bar (red, then orange, then green) represent different discounts? Does the price rise as interest increases? are the best discounts always (or often) at the beginning? 

Or am I reading too much into the earlier conversations.

The OP was for the Community Pricing resource - https://www.logos.com/product/8567/new-schaff-herzog-encyclopedia-of-religious-knowledge

As with all CP Logos users bid on resources. The chart summarizes these bids. If your bid is red it indicates that currently your bid will not be successful if the trend continues. If it is orange it shows the highest bid that will succeed in the trend continues. The orange bar will change to green once it crosses 100% and will then go into production. Right now this resource is approximately at 90%.

I hope this makes sense to you. As you can see it is not about increasing prices but rather about determining what the cost for this resource will be.

It hasn't budged since Monday. OK, one of the ladies please get in the driver's seat, but don't gun it too much or we'll be wearing mud back there; let's put a couple of bricks under the front of the rear tires and PUSH!

The top of the $30 dot is just barely eclipsing the bottom of the !00% line. Let's go; tweet and promote!

Not sure why I missed bidding on this earlier, but I am in at $30.00.

I have only done this a few times so far.  I'm in on the bid.  At times I wonder about some of these old works and their original publications, 1914.

I realize how these can complete a thought, give insight on a particular.  It seems difficult to contemplate the fact there doesn't seem to be more

publications that are more current to date.  Then again, the zeal seems to have lost it's luster with current writers that are well set with the breath and 

fever of the Holy Spirit.  Let us continue prayer believing another great as Spurgeon will arise and write, write, write with fire.

There are more up-to-date resources dealing with most (if not all) of the topics in S-H but nothing together in one place as in this encyclopedia; in other words, no equivalent single modern resource.

There have been two attempts that I know of to 'update' Schaff-Herzog. One in the 1950's and another in the 1970's. Neither seems to have met with much critical success. However the fact that publishers attempted this seems to indicate the reputation S-H still held many years after its publication.

One thing S-H seems to be strong on is biography. The $30 I bid would be worth the price of obtaining just this part of the resource (which is unlikely to be much out-of-date).
