Anyone else having difficulties posting to someone's WL?  I posted 3 books to a member.  One posted to her, the other 2 went into the FIFO system.  I really hate to have to cancel from someone and I'm 99.9% sure I did everything correctly!  (I've posted to WL before).  Anyone else notice any problems??

Marie, I see you shelf is on Vacation Hold. Did you post the books to her and then take the Hold off? If you try to post to someone while on Vacation Hold, it will hold the books and then put them into FIFO when you remove the Hold.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh.... I didn't realize that!  Darn it!  Now I'm probably going to have to list them again!!

Thank you for the information!

I have had that happen to me too (but it was several years ago) -- I posted to a buddy's wishlist, no, her account was not on hold and my account was not on hold -- and it went into FIFO. I only became aware of it when my buddy responded to the PM I had sent her telling her that I was posting a book to her wishlist and she wrote back saying that she never had the request show up. The only thing I could ever figure out how it happened was either it was a one-time glitch or she did not accept the wishlist book within the 48-hour period (and was too embarrassed to admit to it). Oh well, not the end of the world...

Sally - that one they've actually fixed, I think. You no longer get the Post This Book button when you are viewing the Buddy's WL if they are on Vacation Hold unless they are first in line for that book.

Also I believe if you are looking at someone's WL and that little bubble is open to give a few book details-and you hit post this book in that it'll go to FIFO.
