Guys, does this process mean that the Good Doctor travels to Logos to record the course only after a certain amount of money is pledged; or, is it already recorded and the course is only packaged up and made ready for retail release once the pledges are in?

Also,

Does anybody know how much money needs to be pledged before a resource like this is OK'ed?   Is it a few thousand or tens of thousands or?????

Also, and finally,

How much longer will this mighty and wonderful (for me at least) resource be hung up based on the experience of the old timers (I am older that any of you!) here......and once it has the go ahead,  is it weeks, months or years before it is released to me.

thanks

Rob

$90 Bidders go back to $100 because, clearly, your strategy isn’t working and the $90 bucks line isn’t moving and the $100 is lower and stuck too.  Just remember that at $90 FL will need more bidders to fund this. At $100 I think we can make it cross the line sooner, but at $90 this will be stuck in limbo for a really long time.  Don’t be cheap, it’s only $10 bucks difference!

Indeed. Bidding $90 instead of $100 is effectively snatching defeat from the jaws of victory Sad

FL generally doesn't start producing a resource until it's been fully funded. Otherwise, FL might not have enough initial buyers to cover their cost to produce it.

Nope (although if you estimate how many bids it took to reach 100% funding, it's more likely to be $10,000-$99,999 rather than $1,000-$9,999).

Not weeks. Generally around 6 to 9 months.

Please send me $10 to help cover the difference Stick out tongue

I don't think it's being cheap. The course may have great value, and $100 might be a steal, but it may simply come down to what people can afford to pay.

I'm sure you're aware that there are plenty of people in the US who live on a limited income, and have to make difficult choices between food and paying bills, or food and medication.

And Im sure those people are not trying to buy a pre-pub Mobile Ed course on Old Testament Theology...  You can get a book cheaper.

I suggest it's about what people are willing to pay, not what people can afford.

For example, I can afford the course for $100, but I'm not willing to pay it.

Why am I not willing to pay it? Because for the same amount I can buy two or three good books on the topic. Because a base package has a much better value for price. Because there are other CP courses coming up with more interesting topics. Others might have other reasons.

And it's not just $10 either. If I increased all my CP bids by $10, that'd be one massive bill in the end -- not only increasing the price of the individual resources, but also ending up buying lots of resources at prices I'm not willing to pay for them.

Compared to the course the book is not cheaper. It’s $41.99 and you have to read it. The course you watch the actual author teaching the material.  So for $60 bucks extra, I’d rather watch than read.

Book $41.99: https://www.logos.com/product/17275/an-old-testament-theology 

Course could be $100 or a little less: https://www.logos.com/product/149558/mobile-ed-ot300-old-testament-theology

Bruce Waltke's substantial (16 hour) OT300 Theology of the Old Testament course is close to crossing the Community Pricing line at the $100 price-point. That represents a saving of 82%.

This is a great time to get on-board and secure this discount for yourself: you could get a $560 dollar course for a hundred bucks!

One of the things I love most about Old Testament theology is how it opens up our understanding of New Testament theology.

My new-looking Order History page https://connect.faithlife.com/account/communitypricingbids shows that I have no community pricing bids.  I actually show I have $100 bid on this item.  The regular Order History page shows my bid.

OT300 just crossed the line at $100. Bidding will close on 8/31/2018 at 12:00pm Pacific time.

If you haven't bid yet (or raised your bid to a successful amount), you've only got a few days to place an order at CP pricing.

(Note that you can always cancel later, but if you reorder it, it would be priced at Pre-Pub, not the original CP price.)

Now it’s the time! All bidders, $150 and $90 shoot for $100 with all your might and that’ll cause the line to exceed the limits of “too many orders” and that should drive the $90 price up to cross the line too and that way everybody wins and $90 will become the new price 👍😁👌 Act fast, time is running out!

It looks like there's a chance that the price could fall to $90. That would be an astounding 84% off. Wow Big Smile

If everybody follows my advice, it definitely will.  We still have time, but everyone in the $90‘s and $150‘s price, I mean everyone needs to switch their bids to $100. 👍😁👌

Moving from $150 to $100 will have no impact on $100 peak as its already included in the $100 peak along with the $90 peak.
