One of my WL books (on auto-request) recently came up and I got the "Request Accepted" email from PBS.  Later that day I got a second email - this time a "Cannot Mail" email because the member saw that I had requested books from non-smoking homes and a member of her household smokes.   Here's what I don't understand - at the bottom of the email it says that the credit has been returned to my account and the book has been put on my WL.  Except when I checked, it was on my RL, not my WL, and I had to move it over.  Not a big deal since I'm the only one with this book on their WL, but if I was one of many, wouldn't I lose my place in line?  Anyone have this happen to them or have an explanation?

Thanks - and I apologize in advance if there's something obvious here that I just missed!

That sounds like some glitch in the system, if I were you i'd contact R&R about it. 

It seems like I've read posts on here before about it, but I don't remember the responses.  Hopefully someone else will have an explanation.

ETA!  It just occurred to me, if you are the only one to WL it and the last person was the only one with a copy of it, if you put it back on your WL, it will go back to that same person, if that makes sense!  Wait a few weeks or so and then put it back on your WL, maybe another book will be in the system by then.

If you are the only Wisher, it will go to your reminder even though the email says it is going back to your WL. Since there is no WL button on the book while there is one in the system, you will need to wait and watch until that one gets ordered out of the system.

Melanie - that makes sense.  Thanks!
