Do you think Logos has the wisdom to start a new classified forum for users to buy/sell resources and/or other stuff for that matter?

the way I see it. This would be a great use of the forum. I dont' think it will hurt their sales. it will help it actually now that users have a convenient way to buy/sell their resources. it encourages new customers to switch to Logos from the competitors because of this added layer of protection for their investment. It also encourages users to try new resources because they know if they don't like it it's possible to sell it to someone who can use it. It also shows sincerity on logos' part that they are not just after our money, but they truly want to build a Logos community.

what do y'all think?

I'd like it but I don't think Logos would. 

However, I have become very careful about buying used resources. I have several  of eBible "Lifeworks" collections that I purchased used only to find they cannot be registered again. (I was told by the Sellers it could be.) Also, I purchased Yale Anchor Bible Dictionary for a good price on eBay. I paid the transfer fee (then 10% of retail) and discovered it just went on sale on the Logos website for the same price I had invested in it. I would rather purchase directly from Logos when the price is about the same.

Still, I would love a classified section. Especially if they would allow non-software related Bible study items. Hardback commentaries & such.

No, mainly because of the other stuff! Unless you mean by classified a forum structured toward buying and selling Logos products, including their transaction fee.

After re-thinking this I have to agree with Dave. There are already other venues for selling out there. Most Logos users are probably trying to dump their hard copy libraries in favor of digital resources. There would also be a glut of Christian "fluff" like suncatchers, self-produced music CDs, and whatever. And there would probably be a need for some type of policing of content.

I still don't think Logos would benefit from a consignment form of selling. There may even be licensing issues with copyright holders that prohibit selling under a certain price. It seems like a reailer shouldn't sell used stuff alongside the new. Especially when functionally you can't see any difference between the two.
