I  have been a member for a long time, but I don't spend a lot of time on the site anymore, just trade my books.  Anyway, there have been a lot of changes - some of which I don't understand.  I had two books on my TBR pile that I had read and was ready to post, one was marked that it was on somebody's wishlist, and the other was marked on somebody's wishlist set to "automatic".  I assumed that when I posted them, the auto accept one would be immediately accepted, but they are treated the same way.  I am waiting the standard 48 hours for them to be accepted.  So, what is the difference?

btw, I don't really care, books come and go and I am not too tense about the details, just curious.

The person with autorequest is probably out of credits so it went to 48hr hold to give them time to get credits.

The one that was on autorequest was probably out of credits. If that happens the order goes to a regular 48 hour hold and they are given the chance to buy credits.
