I find that I'm missing the feature to convert items from my wish list to my reminder list  in the latest update to the site. Is this something that will be restored?

Not sure if it will be restored. I can't find where I read it now, but TPTB stated they removed that option because they received a lot of complaints from people who did not know that converting to RL would remove the book from wish list.  You can also send a message via feedback and let them know you miss the feature.

I doubt it.  Like Janelle said they took that away because people were constantly complaining about accidentally removing books from their WL.  I used to see a lot of people posting about having done that and can only imagine the # of requests they were getting to be put back in the same place in line.

But now you can hold books on your WL shelf until you're ready for them to be in ordering mode.

Funny, I just missed it today too.  Not that I can't work around it, but it was nice.

I also miss the convert button  :)  But have noticed if I hover over the book, a window opens that allows me to put the book on the other list (and delete elsewhere if desired).  Takes longer, but it does work.
