I'm excited about Logos Now and plan to subscribe once it gets fleshed out a bit more, but I'd be even more excited about a program that would fund fixing the typo and tagging backlog.  I'd gladly pay $8.95/month to fund the fast-tracking of cleaning up, fixing, and thorough tagging of existing books.

I don't know how the logistics would work, since you couldn't really keep those resource updates "exclusive" for the subscribers, but I'm sure I'm not the only one who would like to see something like this, based on the number and frequency of posts about numerous typos and "unfinished" tagging (i.e. updating existing works to incorporate the newer tags released with L5/L6 and updating existing works with missing links and/or links to works that have been released since the existing works were released, etc.)

Thoughts?

I might be in a minority here when I say that typos and tagging are not huge issues for me. But I appreciate the direction you're going with this.

However, something else you said resonates well with me: I also "plan to subscribe once it gets fleshed out a bit more". My problem is knowing when it's fleshed out enough. For as many complaints as I've seen from folks when Logos 6 first came out, I'm not quite ready to pay to get access to even less mature features or apps. (I'm not complaining here; I'm a happy customer. But I'm just contemplating cost-benefit of early release products.)

I could also suggest something like direct fix, selected users could be allowed to do it.

Excellent points.  Typos would be a critical issue if one was publishing or in school producing papers to be graded.

I agree! Have you seen/supported the UserVoice suggestion here? I think the system could be refined and tweaked from the suggestion, but we need to let faithlife know that this is important!

sorry, I'm on mobile and the link isn't cooperating :-( here it is in a raw form that you can copy/paste: http://logos.uservoice.com/forums/42823-logos-bible-software-6/suggestions/1427695-allow-users-to-add-hyperlinks
