I have a book that I posted a month ago.  At the time it had 60+ people on its wish list.  Since I posted it originally, two people have said they do not want it because the DVD is not included; the rest did not respond to the wish list offer.

This afternoon I had two requests for this book under "Requested from You."  I approved one of them, and now it's also on wish list hold for a third person.  Does anyone know what's going on?  :(

Use the contact us link at the bottom of the page to notify the site of the issue. They rarely read these boards. Someone can take a look at your account and get this 'glitch' straightened out.

Yes, please send this in via feedback--I've heard of this happening to two other people tonight, so the Admin Team needs to know about it.

This isn't about your question, but I was wondering if your book was even postable.  

Did it originally come with a DVD?  If so, the rules say it isn't postable without it (see the 2nd circle below). 

You can, however post it in the Book Bazaar thread for unpostable WL books.  Or, if it isn't WL'd anymore, offer it in your own thread.

If you send it out and the other member realizes that it was technically unpostable, they could possibly mark it RWAP and you could be out your credit down the road. 

Just a thought to consider.  And of course, disregard the above if I somehow misinterpreted your original statement about the DVD accompanying the book.


Supplementary/Accompanying Materials:

  • Books that originally came with supplementary Media materials may be posted -  the supplementary Media materials MUST be included.

    • supplementary Media materials include CD(s)/CD-ROMs/DVD(s)/VHS tape(s)
    • if the book originally included supplementary Media materials, the supplementary materials must accompany the book for the book to be postable.
    • The supplementary materials cannot be posted alone - both the book and the supplementary media must be included in the posting.  
    • These combination listings are valued at 1 credit.
