After a bit of an uproar from customers, Humble Bundle have decided to ditch their idea of replacing sliders that let people customize where their money goes.

In their original blog post, they mentioned the sliders that let you adjust the amount you give to Humble, Developers, Charity and Partners would be replaced with a static two-tier system that was giving a lot more to Developers and Humble. Now though, in a fresh blog post they're backtracking.

Today, we’ll be turning sliders back on for all customers on our bundle pages while we take more time to review feedback and consider sliders and the importance of customization for purchases on bundle pages in the long term.

It seems they've learned the hard way that rolling out big changes to their original business model, while they're a smaller store isn't going to cut it without a lot more thought put into it. The new bundle page style is still going to be rolling out that they showed off previously, but it will still have sliders.

Some things will still change in future though by the sounds of it, as they will be "exploring different approaches to the sliders and how splits work, along with new ways to incorporate charity into other parts of the user experience" but they will be sharing more and gathering feedback in future instead of just doing it.

As a Humble Bundle Partner, we're glad to see that they're willing to listen.

I don't care as well. I just unsubbed from the news letter, and I don't think that I want to buy anything from them anymore. They really died when IGN bought them.

Huh? I mean, IGN being involved in anything is just generally a bad thing.
But afaik, they are not involved in Humble Bundle, but some other bundle site? I might be wrong, though.

IGN acquired Humble Bundle in 2017.

This.

This was exactly why I used sliders. If I had an issue with the charity, I throw the slider down to '0' and give Humble and the developers more...
