that i meant to post to someones wish list..instead it went to the main waiting list. Is there a way to cancel without having to wait on that person to accept or decline?

This is what it says in the Help section


If the book is involved in a Wish List Hold, you will not be able to cancel the offer until a Wishing member requests the book.

Once the other member accepts, you will need to cancel and take it off your shelf and THEN post it back again to your friends's WL.  Its happened to me a few times here lately - I posted it to someone's WL and it went to FIFO instead.

Happened to me too when I posted a copy of Stolen Charms I had bought expressly to send to a buddy. It went on the public WL by mistake.   Big pain.  They have to accept or decline before you can cancel the request.  I even pm'd the librarian about this.  They suggested posting a copy of a different really popular book instead and using that to send to the buddy.

I had that happen as well.  I canceled the request and also PM'd the requesting member to let them know what happened and apologize.

I did the same.  Annoying glitch though.  I think it's set up this way because they really want us to use the FIFO system and not send WL books to our buddies.
