Hello:

A member on another post suggested someone make their wish list public.  How do you do this?  I've looked in Settings and I don't see anything.    Does making it public give you a better chance of getting the books faster?

 

Thanks.

Anita, your WL is already public.  I can see the books you have listed, and if I had any of them, I'd post them right to you!  It can help you get them faster since some people on the forums like to post WL books to people they '"know", or people who can take more than one book to save on postage.

I was wondering the same thing -- I would like to make sure that my wishlist is public as I'll be adding a LOT more too it I'm sure!  :)

Your WL is public, Beth. Just look at your forum post. If you can see the Wish List button under your name, others can too and can click on it.

Seeing your WL on a forum post doesn't make it public.   I thought I had made mine private and then I saw it....posted it (similar topic) and I was told that no one could see it.  So I don't think your WL/Bookshelf is made private to yourself  (cross eyes on that one)

Yeah I think it always shows both your shelves to you.  But I can see all your Wish List icons. THat doesn't show to others if you are on private.  Go under My Account and click on Settings.  That's where you can set up which emails you mant to receive, what you wnat to show to others and all that kind of stuff.

Some people are embarressed by the books they have on their WL.  Some people are die hard FIFO followers and hate the thought of someone posting directly to them.  That's why they keep their WL private.

Isn't public the default setting?  I mean, it is set there when you start unless you go and change it?
