I have a book that has been requested from my shelf that has a condition that they would like dust jackets on hard cover  books.  They do ask that if the dust jacket is missing to PM  -  it might be ok.

The book requested does not have a dust jacket, but I can't figure out how to find out who is requesting it.  What do I do?

thanks

There should be a button to the right of the screen that says PM in it.  Click on it, and it will allow you to send a PM to the requestor. :)

You need to accept the request first and then immediately pm the person using the PM box that will appear.

If I accept it and then can't meet the conditions, what happens to my place in line?  Do I go back to the end of the FIFO?

Two scenarios here:  IF you just listed the book, then yours would be the only copy and you would not have to worry about losing the place in FIFO.

IF the user just wishlisted/ordered it, they could cancel it on their end and you would retain your position.  Since there would be multiple copies there is no one sitting with it on their wishlist so they would go to the top of the wants.  You may get the request a second time from them, but you would know to cancel it right away so it moved on.
