DAL:

So, does that mean these books will no longer be available in Vyrso, just logos? And...where is the book: "How to Preach Without Notes" I don't see it anywhere and the only one I see in Logos is part of an expensive Baker bundle.  Help locating it, please!

DAL

DAL,

   They pulled it from Vyrso when it was first put in the bundle awhile back. If I recall correct, it happened very quickly..All the best.

Thanks ChelseaFC!

*Bump* I still haven't seen updates of most of the books in the list that I own. 

Is this correct or did something went wrong?

Some have already mentioned that a number of the books on the list have already been upgraded prior to the release day, so I suspect yes, you have already been upgraded.

Still, I am not able to find "The art of Neighbouring", "Colors of Hope" and "Hip-Hop Redemption" in any other edition as the e-book.

I apologize for the confusion. Allow me to clarify.

I posted a list of Vryso books that have already been added to Logos and have already been unlocked for owners. I did so because those two things did not happen at the same time. We have been converting books (from Vyrso format to Logos format), and not keeping up with the unlocking. We just batch unlocked a big block of books, but fear we might have missed some. So if you own a Vyrso book which appears now on Logos.com, but you haven't yet received the Logos edition, email me. We overlooked it, and I can take care of it for you.

Does that make sense.

Ray, I hope you're still subscribed to this thread, because there's a lot of fuzz on WARNING: Logos May no longer update Vyrso books! that you or someone ought to look into.

Ray from Faithlife:

We have a standing promise to Vyrso customers that, if we convert any Vyrso title to a Logos resource, they will get the new, more extensively tagged edition for free.

To that end, we just completed a huge list of unlocks—resources that had been converted from Vyrso to Logos.

But I have a sneaking suspicion that a book or two may have fallen between the cracks. If you notice that you own a Vyrso book that is now available in Logos, and we neglected to unlock it for you, email customerservice[at]logos[dot]com, and we'll get it taken care of.

I apologise (or apologize to US readers) for reviving such an old thread, but I was wondering if previously purchased Vyrso books are still being converted to Logos editions when they are available?

They should be. Did you have an example?

Thank you very much JT for your reply. 

I have a situation where a book I purchased in Vyrso is not showing as owned on Logos. I followed up with customer service and apparently it is because the one I own has a different license number from the one on the Logos website. 

I am not too perturbed, as I still have the Vyrso (ebook) edition in my library and was just wondering for future reference if books were still being transferred now that Vyrso no longer exists. All it means is that I will have to double check my library before making any purchases.

Sue, that explanation doesn't make sense to me ... I have dual copies of my vyrso --> logos books.

Sometimes folks in customer service are not aware of the policy or promise of Vyrso books being converted into Logos books when they are available in Logos.

Speaking from experience; and when they found out it was sorted out for me.

Sue - which book? It matters! What is the copyright info for that book?

Sue--I'll take a look at this when I get in the office this morning. It looks to me like the same book.

Shalom Kyle!

Could you also take a look at the concise Whitefield biography by Dallimore: https://community.logos.com/forums/t/172866.aspx 

I am not concerned about the promise of converting Vyrso books to Logos editions. It just does not make sense to me why the reprint edition is still being sold.

It does, and looks like Kyle is on top of it. To clarify some things which were said earlier:

Yes, an eBook (Vyrso or now Faithlife eBook) should be converted to a "Logos edition" if it is converted... BUT: It has to be the same book. As Kyle noted, it does look like this is the "same" book. However, the "same" to you, may not be the "same" to the publisher. Sometimes the publisher will release different editions of the same book. In that case, you would not likely receive an updated Logos edition. What is really annoying is when the different edition is simply a change in Book covers! Tongue Tied

Also: Previously, when a conversion happened, you would always end up with two editions of the resource in your library. That isn't always the case anymore. Sometimes the same file is converted and you end up with just one copy of the book. There are technical reasons for why this was the case in the past.

Sue. I unlocked the Logos Edition for you. We've tried to make the process smoother for both owners of the ebook and us but this is one of those older models where it wasn't so smooth. Let me know if you have any more questions.
