I seem to be having a lot of issues today with the system in general. Charged me twice for the same book, multiple emails for the same book on a few of them, weird stuff.

Anyone else?

I tried to add books to my tbr pile and it didn't do it, even after it says it's been posted to it.  There isn't a limit is there? lol

I just added a book to my WL and it says I'm 1 of 131. I can assure you it was not previously on my WL before!

I have an order for 2 books I can't reply to. The books and the check boxes aren't appearing. Just the button that says "check all" and the other buttons. I tried using check all  button and saying I could mail them later, but it won't take it. Guess I'll try again later on.

i had that same WL thing too - added a book and i was shown as 1 of 36.  i doubt it changed from FIFO to LIFO, so i'm assuming it's a glitch and it'll sort itself out.

My Personal Messagaes tab is stuck saying I have 1 message when I don't.  I wonder what they've been trying to change behind the scenes?

I was also going to comment on the 0 members.   I don't think so.  No way.  I also  had  a PM and after i answered it, I still had the number saying I had a personal message and I don't.   Yes, I wonder what they all are fussing over now?? scratching head in puzzlement......

That is happening at my account too, Donna!  Can't say yes, can't say no.  Don't even know what books are being requested!

Yes.  I tried to update my profile...and when I'm in settings the changes are showing, but not when I'm in my profile.  Weird.

I noticed my tbr pile looks right today. Is everyone else back to normal?

I don't know -- I posted Patterson's "7th Heaven", which has, oh, 400 some people wishing for it.  It sat there for 48 hours.  Nothing.  I'm waiting; I'm not worried.  I'm sure Person #1 is busy or gone or whatever.

So today, I get an email saying I have a personal message.  A member PM'ed me saying, "What? Don't you have this book? I see you cancelled the request.  I guess I'll order from someone else."

I check, and yes, it looks like it has passed to the next person, who now has 48 hours to accept it.  But I wonder if someone else was really first, and the system was messing up? 

There are a couple of more confusing facts.  Member No. 1 (who PM'ed me) does not have a wishlist.  IF she let the request time out, wouldn't it be back on her WL?  And how could she request it "from someone else" when there's such a huge list?  I'm confused!  I PM'ed her back, but haven't heard anything.

Any ideas?

if you don't accept a WL offer within the 48 hours, it is removed from your WL.  (because apparently you didn't want it.)

if she's going to get it from someone else, it doesn't sound like it'll be from PBS.  no idea on that one.

if she thinks she accepted it, but it didn't take for some reason, then she'd have to do Contact Us to get back on the WL.

Ellen, thanks!  I didn't know the book would be removed, but that does make sense.  I asked her if she had accepted it, but I still haven't heard back.  Anyway...I appreciate you answering my questions...
