I bid $20

This is one I would really like to see in LOGOS - I bid $36 and would bid more if I could.  This is comparable to Miley - if you want to read the works of a classic Wesleyan/Arminian author, then Pope is one of the best.

Blessings,

Floyd

You convinced me. I raised my bid to $20, even though I am not Wesleyan/Arminian.

Count me in. I am surprise that a lot of folks in the Logos community are not availing themselves of the opportunity to purchase Logos stuff on the cheap via the community pricing.

Community Pricing traffic has increased in the last couple of weeks due to several threads on this forum. If we keep up the chatter, perhaps more people will catch on to the advantages.

I'm bidding for this too, but I don't really understand the logic of placing a higher bid rather than a lower bid. For example, right now, $10, $12 and $14 are pretty much even so why bid for $20 (or even $14) rather than $10?

Ted, the Wesleyan tradition was a huge influence on both the America and Britich forms of Christianity. This resource should be of interest to anyone, regardless of their current tradition or theological bent! Logos needs more stuff like this. I hope more folks will also bid on the Charles Finney collection. I have written a short book on Finney and his influence on American Christianity and I must say that 100+ years later, he is still one of the largetst influences on the "Evangelical" faith that people know nothing about. More people need to know what is in these resources.

Great Joe. I will place an order for your books on Amazon, thanks for the lead.

Hi John

   It is my understanding that a bid of 20 dollars would increase the graph from 1 dollar to 20 dollars.  If I am correct?

Correct.

 

By bidding $20 you are effectively saying that you would be happy to pay anything up to that limit

You've misunderstood my point. I guess it's more of a question. Is Logos averaging the bids or are they keeping them separate. For example, say there is an item that will cost $100 to produce. Three people bid $25 and one person bids $50. Does this mean that Logos would send the item into production at $43.75? Or does this mean that you either need one more person to bid $25 or one more person to bid $50?

If it isn't averaged then I'm not doing anyone any favors by bidding $50, in fact I'm hurting the bidding pool. If it is averaged, then I'm still not necessarily helping those who only wanted to bid $25. So it seems smart to just bid lower and see how other bids start coming in (if the item is new or doesn't have a lot of bids) or to bid on whichever price has the most support. If there are a lot of bids at $10 and none at $50, why would I bid $50?

The latter is true. If you bid $50, then it is logical to assume that you would also be willing to pay any price up to and including $50. Thus, in your example, you have placed one bid for $50 or one bid for $25, or one bid for $30, etc. To continue your example, if 10 people each bid $50, the product would the move to Pre-Pub with your order for the product at $10.

To continue the example farther, if you only bid $10 and Jack and I bid $30 and three people bid $20 the book would go into production for $20. 5 bids of $20 or more equal $100. Unless you raise your bid during that last week or four more people bid $10 or more, you will not get the book at the community pricing discount.

This means you should always bid the MAXIMUM you are willing to pay on your very first bid. There is no risk to you missing the lowest price, because regardless of how high your bid you are alway guaranteed the lowest price. However, if you are biding less than you are willing to pay you are risking not getting the resource and your are also not helping the resource get into production as quickly as it might.

What has historically happened is many people during that last week raise ridiculously low bids. If only these people had bid at a more realistic level in the first place the resource might have gone into production sooner. I am afraid this is what has happened with Barnes Notes.
