OK so I posted a WL book last night and noticed she had another book on her WL that I could send.  PM'd her to ask first, she says yes so great. I go to post it to her WL and it brings up this form for me to fill out for the info on the book.  I never actuallly hit the confirm book golding rule posting thing but it's now on my shelf on 1hr hold for autorequest.  Was this just a fluke thing or something they are trying to get people to do to get more info in the listings?

Never heard of this, Mary.

Was it posted to the person you meant to post it? Or did it go FIFO?

I hope it went to her but I won't know for sure until the 1hr buyers remorse it up.  She had the 1st book on autorequest and I posted that one to FIFO.  So I'm thinking it's the same person. It's also no longer on her WL.    It said I was posting it her when the info screen came up. I had just never seen that before and before I knew it the book was on my shelf on one hour hold without me ever confirming that I was posting the book.

Mary, I am having a problem posting a book to a friend's WL.  I think something is fishy here.

Well mine went through to the right person.  But I still don't know what that info page was about.
