I have two different situations one incoming one outgoing pending on my shelf waiting for a response to a PM.   How long should you wait for a response?  Is it appropriate to send a second PM reminder that you are waiting to hear from them?  The one incoming was a deal offer and we did comunicate back and forth once.  I'm thinking maybe they changed their mind and won't respond back again.  Should I just cancel the request?  Or PM again?

I think it's up to you, but this is a holiday week. Some people may already be out on the road, or busy getting ready for company.

I think you just have to give it your best call. Only you know all the details.

just as you can see it on your account page, so can they.  The system will cancel it if they don't mark it by the timelimit in the system.  The system may re-order the book, so you might want to watch that and cancel the re-order, as it won't include a deal.  I would let the system cancel if they don't meet the deadline and pm after the system cancels & see if it was a mistake.
