ETA: Ok now it says I'm 14 of 14.  That makes more sense.

So I put a book on my WL.  I had clicked on the author's name from a book on my shelf and then on the red book name on the author list.  It came up but didn't show the # wishing.  So I put it on my WL then went to my WL to check.  How can I be #1 of 13 literally a second after I WL the book.  The date was correct. I didn't add the book earlier and forget.  It shows 8/9/08.  I seriously doubt 12 other people put the same book on WL right after me.

This is a glitch that happens every now and then as of late.  It's a wicked awesome surprise, but it never lasts long enough to get me the book!  lol  Seriously, though, it's just a glitch, and although I'm not sure, I think it's just a glitch in how it appears to us, e.g. the actual positions in line are unaffected.
