With the last 3 book requests that I've received, the can mail within 2 days and the can mail later buttons were the 1st ones that came up.  I never had a chance to see and click on an accept request  button.  Did something change recently?

When was there ever an 'accept request' button? Since I've joined here, the first screen you've always seen (unless there are RCs) is for choosing whether you can mail in two days, mail later, or cannot mail. Saying you can mail the book IS accepting the request.

ETA: I think you're just a bit confused. Could you be thinking of RCs, where you need to accept or decline based on the conditions before you say when you can mail the book?

UGH, I can't type tonight. I think it's time to go to bed.

I agree, it always comes up with the mailing options -- you must be thinking of how books with RCs show up on your page.

Just for what it is worth...I agree with Tiffany and Sally.

If you are a member on Bookmooch you might have the sites mixed up.  BM gives you an "accept request" button.

Actually, on 1/11/11 I logged in and had 2 books requested.  I clicked, "Yes, I can mail this book" for the first request, an RC popped up with the option to state that "I cannot mail the book",  I clicked the book did not meet RC.  When I went to the next request,  the second book request ONLY had the "Print Wrapper" option or cancel request.  I ended up PM'ing the requestor of the 2nd book to make sure the RC was not on the 2nd book as well; and she had only requested the 2nd book. 

I thought perhaps it had been too long since I had sent a book and I clicked something wrong.  I do not think the system was working quite the way it used to work for multiple requests.  I also didn't get the "I can mail later" option which I frequently have to use.
