Jan, its not likely that someone who received your request will see your post here in the Bazaar if you ordered it through the system, less then 10% of the members use the Forums and not all of those come into the Bazaar. If you have an active request for the book, there should be a PM button on the request, but a member has 5 days to respond to the request and another 5 days to mail it so as long as they are within those time frames, they aren't doing anything wrong. You can send a PM and politely ask if they might be able to ship sooner since you need it for a birthday.

Also, make sure you aren't cancelling a request and re-ordering if you feel it is taking too long. The system will cancel an order and send the request on to the next person with the book if the first doesn't respond within the timeframe the site allows. If you cancel the request and re-order it yourself, you are just sending your request back to the same member and restarting the 5 day clock with them.

On requests that you need more quickly than the site allows, you may want to add a Request Condition stating you need it shipped quickly so that senders who cannot accomondate that can turn down the request and it will get passed on to the next person, and eventually on to someone who can more more quickly.
