  • Re: Faithlife Financially: "What condition is your condition is in?"

    [quote user="Dan Francis"]I have no idea if an IPO would ever come nor do I have any significant notion about the financial health of FL. But Bob's explanation seemed sound and indicated to me cash flow for payment of royalties was leaving FL occasionally cash poor for the payments... And like it had been said earlier if the worst ever happened without

  • Re: Sell me Logos 7 today!

    [quote user="Mark Barnes"]Logos only develops things it knows it can sell (the Pre-Pub and Community Pricing schemes are the best example of this). If no-one buys it, it doesn't get developed at all. That's often a great model, but it occasionally fails because sometimes we don't know we want things until we have them. Logos Now is great for those scenarios

  • Faithlife Financially: "What condition is your condition is in?"

    I saw remarks on a recent thread in reference to Faithlife financial situation. I and others are considering investing more in the Logos Bible Software Product. Is Faithlife financially sound? I am not asking just to be mean or to alarm anyone unduly, but to give this matter a proper airing . No one wants to come aboard a sinking ship. This inquiry

    [quote user="Disciple of Christ (doc)"] Still have not received an email about this....as usual Logos dribbles out half baked information to some users and not others who only find out about this stuff if they happen to stumble upon it on the forums. Can we please get this properly communicated to all users currently on a payment plan and not just to

  • Re: Payment Plans and you

    [quote user="Bob Pritchett"]In a perfect world, we'd share with them on a pure 'percentage of revenue' model, which would let us sell more products by subscription, rent-to-own, payment plans, and other models. But they have their own contracts, some of which date back decades, with authors, and are understandably reluctant to go renegotiate terms.

    [quote user="David Paul"] The changes Bob has implemented will solve a subset of problems going forward, but I suspect it will generate a far worse problem as a consequence...a drastic drop in sales. If the publishers are the mindless bureaucrats I take them for, then that will likely be the way of the world for the forseeable future. But maybe, just

    [quote user="Mark Barnes"]But the point I was making was that Logos would find it difficult to sell items in (1) because that would look like a broken promise, and won't want to sell items in (3) because there will be ongoing costs for them. History suggests that they won't want to see those things under (2) because they'll want to bundle them into

    [quote user="James Hudson"] [quote user="Bob Pritchett"](Serious question: Would you 'I have to own it' fans be okay if ownership really was completely transactional? You buy it, you get it as it is that moment. We disable server features, give 30 days tech support and then start charging $10/call, and you don't get feature upgrades or OS-related improvements

    [quote user="Phil Gons (Faithlife)"][quote user="James Hudson"]Yes LN is a supplement. However it IS still rented i.e. if payment ceases you loose the supplementary features (regardless of how much you have spent in rent over the years). You have to 'keep up monthly payments' to keep the features - thus it IS renting! (Well, that's my understanding

    MJ, Your # 1 "Proposed solution" is my whole point of suggesting rental as we move into the future. A part of seriously looking down-board, is it not a part of Faithlife's responsibility to prepare Logos users for future changes? Why I say this? Changes will come and they may be faster than Bob, you or I may care for it to happen. If Faithlife is as
