I was just checking out the new way that the wish list is set up.  I have to say that I don't like it.  As far as I can figure out, you can't sort by estimate anymore.  That bothers me because I enjoyed watching the progress and shuffling of my postion in line.  Does anyone else know if we can sort by estimate or do we truly not have that option anymore?  


It's weird, but I just clicked on Wish List under My Account and it was back to normal?!  Is anyone else having a Twilight Zone moment?

They may be tweaking things during the day.

I hope that's what it was, because I thought that I was going crazy for a moment cheeky

If you click on your Wish List from your profile, you see it as other people see it.  If you click on it from My Account or from the dropdown, you'll see it how you're used to seeing it.

There have been some glitches today which are most likely due to the new features going live. If you have some issues, just wait for a while (until tomorrow at least) and see if things don't go back to normal. If they don't, then you should contact the Team.

The Wish List is the same as it always has been as long as you access it through the My Lists and not through your Profile page.

This is a little off topic BUT Sunday I listed a book with 9 people on the wish list.  I received a message that a wait of 48 hours would be granted for "another member" to confirm points.  48 hours, came and went.  Now I am 24 hours into the second wait.  Doing the math this could go 18 days.  If a person REALLY wants a book enough to add it to a "Wish List", do they need 48 hours to make up their mind.  24 hours seems like an adequate amount of time to respond.  So,  the other 8 people and I wait for someone to respond his/her wish list resquest.  Wonder how ebay would work on this principle?

Not everyone has the ability to log on every day. Some members only have internt access at work, etc.  48 hours seems fair and not really all that long. I've never had a book go through more than 3 people. I know it happens, but I don't think it's all that common. Also, many member have their wish lists set to auto-request, like me, and all books are accepted automatically.  So, hang in there, I don't think it will take as long as you think. ;)
