I posted a book I just gave up on reading and it has a wishlist of about 90 people. Normally, when I do this it comes up as on a wishlist hold. This time it is not doing that, it is just sitting on my bookshelf. Anyone know why it is doing this? EDIT: N/M. I realized it was still in the one hour period. Just confused because it has been about half a day, but that must be it.

The system may hold your entry for an hour, but no longer.  Look on your bookshelf, wishlisted books appear with the symbol (!) in a gray circle on the very right hand side of my screen.  An hour later, they appear on my main page as requested or under a tab that says something like 'waiting on member'.  Which means the requesting member does not have the book on auto request, and the system will wait 48 hours for them to accept or decline before offering your book to the next member in FIFO.
