|Unlock Forum posting with Annual Membership.|
i have seen endless posts on various forums here about the new rules regarding membership fees, choices, etc -- but i have not seen one discussion yet about what happens to our Wish List books if we choose to remain "a la carte".
i have 162 books on my wish list -- (mostly duplicated several times, because of the different editions...). if the new limit is going to be 100 books, what happens to the rest of the books on my list? will PBS just eliminate all the books after 100..? this makes no sense, since they are listed alphabetically...
or will they eliminate all the most recent "wishes" -- after the first 100, by date?
seems pretty crappy for those of us who have been waiting for books for years to simply have our rankings deleted...

thanks Shannon, much appreciated.
here is the answer i got from the "Live Help" members:
. . .
"(for members who registered before Feb 15th, 2015) What happens to my Wish List if I don't enroll in an annual membership?
If you currently have > 100 items on your Wish List but you don't enroll in Limited or Standard Membership, you will keep those wishes.
So in other words, your current wishes over 100 are kept as a courtesy so you don't lose your place in line, but you won't be able to add any new titles to your wishlist until your list goes below 100.
. . .
(the answer is actually shown on that membership FAQ page, but it is not easy to find the way it is listed.)

Yep, it's the wishlist drop from 200 items to 100 that bothers me the most. Adding fifty cents when a credit tends to cost 2.69 for me means that it's over $3 to get a book (& effort of shipping a book). That's now more expensive than anything at the thrift store and many used book stores for me (where I could just go get credit). The fact that I could keep a wish list going made a huge difference, but it has like 175 items on it. To know I can't add another book until I'm below 100 (and I've waited a long time for many of these books) is frustrating. I don't order enough books to bother with the $12 a year. I get maybe 6 books a year. I wish they would have left the 200 number alone for a la carte folks. :(
Or decide to get an annual membership
