Hi!  My account is on vacation for the moment. How can I tell if a new book I posted is on anyone's wishlist?  I ususally go off vacation and right back on to let WL books through, as I don't like to clog up the pipeline of WL books.

If you are worried about it you need to put the books you are sure you want (and have credits for) on auto-request and then they will automatically come to you - otherwise the books that aren't on A-R will be skipped to the next person until you come off vacation hold.

Re-read your post - you can't tell.  You have to be off hold to have your shelf be active in FIFO.

After you post the book, you can click on the title to see the Book Details and it will say "Members Wishing:" and a number if it is on someone's WL.

If you have them on your bookshelf on hold you can see the icon showing if they are wish listed.  Use the Actions at the top right banner on the bookshelf to change them to on Hold. 

Or

You can also see the W indicating wishlisted on the TBR list and the Books Ive Read list.  You might add the books to one of these list. 

Or

You can click on the book and on the book info page it list how many people are on the wishlist.

If you look on your book shelf it'll have a W next to it if it's WL.  As soon as you take your account off hold it'll go onWL hold for someone.

Okay - I must need a nap or something.  I thought the OP wanted to know how to tell if her book was next in the WL.  Sorry!!  ;D
