Am I understanding correctly that the 2nd edition NET Bible notes are a separate purchase and not a free update to the first edition notes?

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

Faithlife Corp. owes the MVPs free resources for life.

Yes. This is considered a "new" resource.

It appears to me that the 2nd edition of notes is actually less notes. If I'm reading the link below correctly, 3,300 notes were eliminated because they too mundane.

We did delete about 3300 footnotes which were deemed unnecessary and superfluous such as “δε has not been translated” or “και has not been translated due to differences in Greek and English style.” Some verses were changed and more notes were added. Please refer to the changes. With these tens of thousands of updates.................

It seems the one improvement to the notes (apart from the removal of 3300 of them, if that is considered an improvement) was "Hebrew references in footnotes were corrected and standardized." That could be important to a number of people.

For $15, this is an easy purchase. I have two copies of the 2nd edition, one hard back and the other leather. But the print is small for my eyes.With Logos on my iPad, I can read it well. And it sounds like the changes in the 2nd edition are an improvement worth paying for again.

I agree with Rick. The notes are nearly impossible for me without my glasses. Geeked

I liked the $7 and change price better.  Now it’s up to $14 and change.  I think I’ll skip it.

Agreed, I literally was going to order it for $7 and then came back the next day to pull the trigger and saw it’d doubled in price.  Skipping it now.

Not sure I've seen this happen before. It shows the benefit of checking the Pre-Pubs daily and buying if a book seems of interest - and then reflecting later on whether we need it.

Just a quick note:  I do have the 2nd ed. via a competing software company.  So far I like the update—though I don’t always agree w. Wallace et al. translation choices as applied to notorious textual variants (I have discussed this w. Dr. Wallace before as it relates to, e.g., I Timothy 3.16, John 1.18, etc.).  

Aside from this peripheral text issue—I absolutely love the NET & it really has become my go-to & favorite translation.

With Logos 9 almost around the corner it should be a clever strategy to delay the purchase and wait whether the NET2 will be included in some base package.

First, if the 2nd edition is worth $8, then its worth $15, so the extra $7 should not be a deal breaker. However, although I thought I paid $15 for it, I checked again and this is what is shows:

"You pre-ordered on 2/25/2020 Your current dynamic price is $7.99"

So perhaps the dynamic price is there for those of us who have the 1st edition.

I just tried to preorder it and it showed 14.99, so I deleted it.  I own the first edition.

This is a core item and a real time saver. Most of us got the 1st edition as part of a Logos package for next to nothing.

I preordered it very early (as soon as I saw it)... it shows $7.99 for me.  I'd venture a guess that if you own the first it is cheaper or maybe Faithlife made a boo-boo and put it at $7.99 to start by accident

Boo-boo it is because I own the first edition of both text and notes.

I own the first edition of both the Bible and the notes, so I placed a pre-order and checked the price.  Still came through as $14.99 for me, so owning the first edition didn't lower the price.  I'll probably cancel and wait to see if it's included in any Logos 9 packages.
