Someone ordered from wl multiple thread and didn't remove rc's as specified- so I denied one of them, but now it went fifo- how do I deny rc and wait for her to remove it so I can repost to same person if they still want them.

PM her telling her to cancel her requests, turn off her RCs, and reorder from you.  She can cancel up until a sender prints out the wrapper.

k- I'm a little confused-

I posted the books to her wl- an horu later I got the "request from me" notification, which has buttons - meets rc, cannot meet rc- so how can she cancel at this time?

If she cancels then she loses her place on the WL.

I think if you put your account on vacation hold and then deny for RCs, the book does not go FIFO, it goes onto your shelf.  Then you can delete it and cancel the vacation hold.

you have to say I Cannot Mail For Other Reasons.  That removes the book from your shelf and leaves her in her place in line.

You're right -- I missed that these were wish list books!
