David Wanat:

No idea if it’s feasible, but could you have it show up (here and Verbum) which ones we own when we vote?

I discovered this works since the beginning. Just click on the book cover and it opens the resource. If it doesn't open in a new tab, use right click.

Yes, I was aware of this. But in the first round, there’s an awful lot to click through.

However, I really hope they make individual volumes available as otherwise I suspect Logos won't end up with any of my dollars.

I agree with this and the other 7 posts expressing preference for individual volumes.  Some of us like to pick n choose. Hey, some even like to -- gasp! -- pick out the raisins!  :-)

I would prefer individual volumes even if it meant 10% less discount than sets (i.e., 25% up to 50% discount).

Here's a promo thought (and I am not a Marketing person), which is a simple variation of a volume discount. Offer a bunch of similar-priced resources (say between $500-$1000) on sale that a customer can choose from. If a customer buys only 1 resource, it will be 35% off (say). If a customer buys 2 resources, one will be 35% and another will be 40%. If a customer buys 3 resources, one will be 35%, one will be 40%, one will be 45%. Have a max limit of say 6 (so that max discount = 60%).  

I have no problem with this scenario, or any similar offering...however...

1Cor10:31:
I'm assuming these sales promos are not directed towards people who already have plenty of resources, but for newbies. Offering 60% discount on whatever the customer chooses can't be a profitable strategy for Logos. Otherwise, they would offer it. They are interested in customer satisfaction and maximizing some sort of profit function.

The promotion I'm describing isn't on "whatever a customer chooses", but on the 64 (or whatever number) of resources that FL chooses to include, just as they choose to include the resources in the MM brackets. I assume that FL expects that any of the 64 items could be the "winner", so it shouldn't be uncomfortable if they offer a discount to any particular item in the pool. Here's the thing...the promotion is obviously designed to encourage customer participation, but I and others are tired of MM since it's the same winners year after year. I DON'T PARTICIPATE. But, that doesn't mean I wouldn't participate if I could get the "winner" discount on some of the perpetual "also rans". Perhaps there is some arcane math I'm overlooking, but if the point of the whole exercise is to encourage participation, this option, or something similar, would certainly increase interest.

Well I've saved lots of money this March. Bought nothing!

I have lots of commentaries in my wishlist to buy if ever available at a serious discount, but no sets I'm desperate to complete, because there's a reason I haven't bought the missing volumes.

I don't know whether to breathe a sigh of relief or hope that Faithlife relent late in the day and make individual volumes available at matching discounts to the sets.

I am glad for the winning commentary set. Thank you Faithlife 👍🙌

I did get the ZEC set. I think I had one or two volumes already, but it is one of the last significant commentary sets I didn't own. Seemed like the time to move on it.

What would you consider your top 10-12 sets that you do own? which ones have been the most useful and helpful?

To be honest, I don't really use them that much. Stick out tongue I like having them for whenever they get cited, so I can read the citations in context, but I almost never just read through them enough to get a sense of "I really like this". I do remember many years ago being pleased with something I found in a Cornerstone volume.

I have been very busy lately and have not kept up with this competition. I am not finding anything on the Logos Web site it must be finished. Am I right or will it end after the Championship game tonight?

The event is unrelated to basketball “March Madness,” and FL is not allowed to use that terminology. That doesn’t stop forum users from doing so, however, as the name of this thread indicates. 

I think it is over.
