Oops, I was posting books and I hit the button twice on one of my books because the screen was taking a while to refresh.  Now it is listed twice on my bookshelf (which I thought was impossible) and both entries are pending someones wishlist.  What is the best way to handle this.  I don't want anyone to get bumped out of line on the wishlist.

I was looking at the books posted today and saw several copies of the same books posted. I decided just to click the order button on 2 of the 4 same titles and found out it was the same person. I believe something is wrong with the site but not sure it's the same problem you are having?

Yes, it sounds like my issue.  I posted it once, but it showed up twice.  The person who wants the both "copies" is the same person, so this should be OK.  I was worried at first it might be two different people.

I would think you would just hit yes for shipping the first one and then cancel the 2nd one right?

Yes, that sounds like the best way.  I will do that once its officially requested.

Thanks

How can the same person have a WL for the same book? Any time I have tried to add a WL book that is already on my WL the system tells me I can't cause it's already there. (Not that I do it on purpose, sometimes I forget and I'm too lazy to check first)

It turns out that the second "copy" changed to another person, so I had to cancel that one.  I feel so bad about the second person.  I offered then a freebie from my shelf.

This happened to me once, only the book was on hold for two different people.  R&R said to just cancel the 2nd order once it was accepted and explain what happened.
