Is there any way to tell if a person shelf is active or not?  I have PM'd someone that I once ordered from some time ago and never received a response.  Her shelf still has books listed that we discussed way back and she said to PM when ready I was ready for the rest of the series but I have not be responded to.  Its been more than a month.  I really would like to deal with her again her books where in wonderful condition.  But I'd like to continue with the series soon.

You could check their profile to see their last login to PBS ... but I think that not everyone displays that. So, it might not be there on her profile.

Other than that, check the posted dates of books on her bookshelf ... or sort by date her WL. See what the most recent thing added is. That's not foolproof, of course, because she might only post WL books, so the last day something was posted to her shelf might or might not tell you the actual last time a book was posted ... but it could be a clue.

I would PM again. If it's been a month ... sometimes it's easy to overlook a single PM ... or think to yourself, I am going to answer that in a minute ... and then get distracted. And, then maybe the next day, you've forgotten.

Were you hopign for a deal?  If not then just order the books from her.  If she's active then she'll accept (she may have just forgotten to respond to the PM).  If she isn't then the time out will flag her account.
