If your shelf is on hold, but you have wish list books on auto, can someone post them to you?

Not with the shelf on hold.

You would get offers that come thru FIFO. But people can't post directly to your WL.

I can see your WL but your bookshelf is on hold. 

ETA:  I can see the WL but the "post" button is gone.  There's always something interesting around here.

No, WL books can't be posted to you when your shelf is on hold. Rather they're on auto-request or not. They'll go straight to FIFO.

Unfortunately I learned this the hard way & caused a bit of a problem for another member. I felt terrible & she was so nice about it.

I took my shelf off hold long enough for her to post the books to me.

Thanks for all the help

I learned that the hardway as well.  It would only work if you happened to be #1.

Because of all the problems from this before, the system now removes the Post This Book button from the Wish List when someone is on Vacation Hold so people can't attempt post it and have it go to FIFO. That makes it so even if you are #1 people cannot post directly to you while you are on Vacation Hold.
