I just had a book on my TBR list that I finished.  When I went to post it, it had the green W beside it.  After I posted it, I went back to my account and it wasn't showing on Wishlist holds.  Went back to my book shelf and it is available to order.  Doesn't have the waiting mark beside it.  Weird.

If it had the green WA icon, that means somebody has it on her wish list with auto-request on. If you didn't get a request right away, it's most likely because she's on hold and has no credits.

It also could be that they declined the WL book right away.  I've posted books and had them accepted/declined almost immediately because the person happened to be on at the time.  If they were the only wisher then it would just go on your shelf.

Also if it's on autorequest it won't go into WL hold-it'll go on your shelf with a ! to show that it's in the 1hr buyers remorse hold.
