I have to many ??? today sorry if your tired of me.  I guess it just happens that way sometimes.

How do I handle this?  Because I already ended up with 2 of the same WL due to  a RWAP that was never cleared up.  I went through all the PMing processes waited more than the appropriated time for response then mark in Archives not resolved.  Since the person never responded I'm not sure what I can do with the damaged book.  But I'd like to get it out of my way.

Now again another WL RWAP  marked it sent PM with explanation and request for credit.  Now I'll wait to hear.  I do want an acceptable copy but I'd like to have a resolution first.  How do I hold the Wish up to wait for resolution?

But my ??? on the first issue since the other person never responded to the request for a return credit or 2 if they wanted the book mailed back to them and its been well over a month.  Can I now do something to get rid of the book.  It is a WL book would it be appropriate to List it in book Bazaar explaining the damage and asking for a credit to cover postage if someone wants it?

Yes you can list it in the book Bazaar listing it's issues and ask for a credit for it.  If it is a WL someone will probably want it.   I have not been in the Bazaar for awhile... But I think there is even a thread for Unpostables.

You can ask for a credit for an unpostable book in the BB you just have to clearly state the damage.

For the 2nd book, I'm not sure why you need to hold off on requesting another copy if you want another one.  But you can just put that WL book on hold.

I'm still feeling a little singed from the first one since I lost my credit. . I think I'm being a little bit paranoid on the second RWAP   That's why I want it resolved before getting the next one.  I have several other WL books due to come available soon and want some of them more so I don't want to be short credits.

Regarding the member who did not respond to your PM when you did a RWAP.  You need to report this to PBS.  Not responding to a PM regarding a RWAP is a no-no on this site and the owners need to know about it.
