This is the 2nd time recently that I've posted a WL book to FIFO and the request showed up within seconds.  Just in the time it took me to click I Can Post This Book and then go to my main account page. I like to check the WL of the wisher right away incase I have something else I can read and offer to post to them.

I think that does mean the person has the book on Auto Request (?).  If the first person in line doesn't have the book on auto, then there is a one hour wait.  I think.

Yes there's no longer a 1 hr wait for auto-requested books.

I personally love it! It means I can post a book and be off to the post office with it with no wait. I love auto-request -- it means I can get my WL books quicker and so can the requestor.

It used to be that even if the first person was autorequest it still went on the 1hr Buyers Remorse. I never got that. I'm here constantly and I still never notice an autorequested WL book posted to me until it's on it's way half the time.

You can still do that and the books will be bulk mail bundled.  I posted a book from a series FIFO and then directly to the WL of the autorequest wisher.  I got 3 WL books into one package in a matter of minutes!  Love it!
