My books on WL are no longer out of order if they are available in the marketplace!  They now line up again by estimated weeks!  Love it!

You can sort your WL in various ways.  I have mine sorted by author.

I do find it resorts itself to sort by Marketplace availablity any time I visit the PBS Marketplace.  I just quit going to the Marketplace because it's annoying to have to resort my WL every time I do.

Estimated weeks calculation is basically a "crap shoot", I sort mine by position and I have all of my WL on auto.

Yup...it seems they fixed it. When my WL is sorted by estimate, all those Marketplace books follow where they may instead of being all bunched after the #1s like it used to be.

smileyI like it this way!  I know the estimate means nothing really but it is they way I like to sort!

ETA - I don't mean to look like I am yelling - I am just happy that they changed it back.

Sort away, either way. Like they say, Different Sorts for Different Folks! wink

They also fixed it so that when it comes up at first it says "Title" now (which is what the sort actually is), instead of "Estimate". The pain with the way it used to be is that if you really wanted it to be sorted by estimate, you had to sort it by something else first, and then go back to estimate. I'm glad they decided to fix both problems.
