member posted my w/l book to fifo on 9/30/10

accepted the request and chose the last mail by date:   10/5/10

member has until 10/7/10 11pm eastern to mark the book mailed.

no wrapper printed.....   clock is ticking, only 1 more hour to mark it.

I dont think she will..  :(

Shes a fairly new member with about 80 books posted on her shelf.   Several were posted on 9-30-10....  no other visible activity

hmmmm.  I just looked at her wish list and she added a few books after she accepted my request a day or 2 later.  like she just forgot all about accepting my request ....   Just my luck, shes only been a member for 2 weeks!

I just hope my book is back in the FIFO line by morning.

This raises a new question.  what were to happen in this case IF my wish list were maxxed out at 200, and the book was returned to my wishlist? how would that work?

It would go to 201.   I've had that happen before.

Like Mary says, the system over-rides the 200 maximum and you would go to 201.  i've actually seen several wishlists temporarily over 200.

Recently someone posted that they had had so many WL requests canceled that their wishlist was at something like 217!
