David Ames:

What if the CP listed the price that we could get the item for if everyone converted their current bid to XXX?

 

That is if it would cost 50,000 and there are 1000 bidders [at all price levels] we would be asked to bid $50 to get it NOW.   

 

The system would then show our current bid (say) 25

The expected bid (what it looks like the community will set the price at (in ten years or so)) (like maybe) $20

And the needed bid (as described above) $50

David Ames:

Graham Owen Replied: [in a thread on Barnes]

[…] as has been noted before if everyone with a bid below $30 raised their bid to $24 it would be [released] at a cost of $1.50 a volume!

I like the idea.

Shawn Drewett:

It is my understanding that there is absolutely no risk in bidding $90.00 ---- am I right?

Well, there is the risk that enough people will bid $90 to make that the price and no more than that.  Then you'll pay $90.  

That's why the best policy in CP is to pick the highest price you'd be willing to pay, and bid that.  I have (without stomping my foot.Stick out tongue).

Hmm Sarcasm is my love language. Obviously I love you.

Well, I have had an occasion in the past when it took so long for a resource to finally make it through community pricing and into pre-pub, that by the time it was ready to ship I had purchased a very similar item, so I edited my order in my account and deleted it.

I understand this isn't true consistently through the reaches of the universe, but if we limit it to all who will read this thread on the forums, at this point Barnes will probably not move up or down even if 100 people suddenly change their bids from $25 to $100.  I think Barnes (being a special case) has been driven for so long at the $30 mark its sort of stuck or locked at that position.  People can either decide to pay $30 and jump in or decide to pay less and miss out.

I'll go ahead and "not necessarily" myself to save the next reader from having to...

So for this resource there is virtually no risk with a $90 bid.  Just as there's virtually no risk of actually receiving Barnes once it ships if someone has a $10 bid (the lowest option).

It will be interesting to see if there are enough last minute customers who jump in to drive the price down to $25 but I don't believe there are enough people nor enough time for it to occur.

Right now Barnes is like tunneling through a mountain; The most effective bids at this point are from new customers at $30 (if there is anyone left! Stick out tongue)

BTW this type of CP discussion needs to be nicknamed "Barnes Theory" Cool (I don't feel like I really get anywhere by writing anything on this subject but it still feels good!)

I agree with Thomas - bid what a resource is worth to you.  I have bid below the $90 price point, but above the $30 price point.  At this point, this is what I am willing to pay.

Once the item makes into pre-pub, and a final price is set, I will take a closer look at the final price.  I can either leave my bid alone or raise it based on my finances at that time.  If I don't think I can afford the offered price, I can always walk away from my bid - though that is not my intention when I make the bid.

Blessings,
Floyd

I think it has moved up a bit since Logos updated their website.

Looks like it's around 85% to me. With other titles I'd call that "almost there" but this one seems to have the curse of perpetuality (CP) hovering over it. It's taken a few months to go from 80% to 85% so it could take the rest of this year to get up to 100%.

Anyone notice Barns' recent jump?

Now it looks like it over 95%! Almost half of the little ball is already over the 100% mark!

We are almost there!!!

Logos posted this on their Facebook page:

"Have you placed a bid? We're only a few bids away from pushing Barnes' Notes on the OT/NT into production! Lock it in at the low Community Pricing level!"

Glad to see that Logos is helping with the push now!  Yes

Shipping 5/13.

Hard to believe after all the time that it spent on CP with hardly any movement.

Okay, where have I been?  I thought community bidding on Barnes ended a while back.  The cost is not aobut $100, but those who were in on the bid will get it for $30.  That's my understanding since it's gone into development.  Am I wrong?

You are correct - if you had bid $30 or more while it was on Community Pricing, you will get Barnes for $30 (plus tax).  If you purchase it now, the cost is almost $100.  The excitement is because the resource moved from CP to PrePub/Production to Shipping so quickly.  Very much appreciated by those of us that wanted this product.

If you were able to get in on the Community Pricing for the set you will see the line that I have the red arrow pointing to.
It will also show up on  your Open Pre-Pub Orders page under your account tab.
