Strangeness....

I've been adding books for about a 1/2 hour and they are showing on my back end bookshelf; however, when I go to my public profile and click on the bookshelf, they are not there.  Is there now a delay between posting and them being available (kinda like the 1 hour pending thing for requests)? 

Any insight would be greatly appreciated :)

When I sort your shelf by Date Descending, the most recent book was added at 1:30. It's now 2:04 ET.

Is there a little grey circle next to them? If so, they went directly to someone's Wish List who had them on Automatic Order.

Only 8 were wishlisted, the other 20 or so should have been showing up but there was a delay/lag for some reason.

Maybe the system can't handle more than 2 million books! LOL Hope it gets sorted out soon. After thought...you don't have them posted "on hold" do you?

Nope not on hold, but for a while, by bookshelf only said 248 books although over 280 were on the "posted" shelf with just the few on hold for WL.  There was also a strange glitch of my credits bouncing between 43 and 44.  The cybergremlins must be out in full force today :)

I think PBS is having issues. I have credits one minute than I don't have credits the next, when I know I do.  Book requests have been slow to get to the requestees, etc.

Try logging out for a bit.  It kept insisting I had 2 PMs when I had already read them.  I logged out for a bit and now when I came back it no longer says 2PMs.

I have noticed that sometimes when posting books there is a bit of a lag time--USUALLY only 4-5 minutes, but it could be slower today.

I just posted a book to someone's WL and it offered it to someone else. It said it was offering it to her but then it put it to FIFO.
