Great news. I've often wished they'd pick from our wishlists. What better way to encourage us to buy. Although I hope most wished for single volumes get included too - I know they're currently excluded, but individual volumes for added mid-way last year.

I went to the DRAFT YOUR PICK hyperlink and there was only the regular list of books. Did I miss something? How do we draft our picks?

Just add to your wishlist.

I have a question. Do we need to create a specific wishlist or will what is already on wishlists be included?

No need to make a separate list. What is already there will be included.

This looks like it is going to be a fun version of March Madness!

Great idea. I love it. However, it is shame that it is for collections  and MobEd courses only:

“Some teams are ineligible to compete, including:

  • Base packages
  • Individual volumes”

Carpe verbum.

Same here.

I have some Sahidic, Bohairic and Gothic in my wish list (they've been there a long time!). I assume they are collections, but I guess they don't win Sad.

Two questions.

How do we filter out the individual volumes so we can only find what is eligible? Just the work of finding a proper filter is too hard for most people (myself included) to not participate in the process.

Will there be dynamic pricing on the collections we already own part of? I am sure there are many who have part of a collection and would want the rest.

Thanks

no individual volumes? is this going to be another thing where 300 dollar bundles are on "sale" for 150?

Looks like it. And most popular, to encourage interest level. And I'd assume most FL-produced, to minimize royalties. The fall-season is the time for 'oh my goodness' sales.

I'm fattening my wallet.  This could be good.

And if it doesn't get good, then we'll have to blame ourselves for it, and not Faithlife.

A filter would be helpful.  But in its absence, the minimal help required would be a definition of "What Is A 'Collection'" vs. "What Is A Single Resource or 'Individual Volume'".

For example, is Murray's two-volume Epistle to the Romans commentary a "collection" because in hardcopy it came in two volumes, or is it a single resource because it is only sold by Logos as a unit?

Is the four-volume set of HALOT a single resource because the four individual volumes are not offered separately? But the five-volume set a "collection" because I-IV and V are sold separately?

Or is any and every offering that is accompanied by an image of two or more hardcopy volumes (books) considered a "collection"?

Yes, a filter would be great. But in lieu of that, a clear definition of what is eligible is required to motivate people to spend their time "voting" by creating a wish list.

Could you vote double by having multiple lists?!?!

A collection is any bundle of two or more resources grouped as a single product. This is a collection: https://www.logos.com/product/7458/the-epistle-to-the-romans Let me try to get a filter put together for you all.

No we are basing on how many people have the item on their wishlist not how many wishlists it appears on. Nice try though ; )
