Last night about midnight I posted some WL books and accept two different RCs.  All my books met the RC's, so I went ahead and accepted them. 

Ok, now it's almost 10 hours later and I'm a bit more awake.  I know my books still meet the RC, but one of did NOT want plastic wrap on hers.  The problem is now I can't remember what order that was for.  I've PM'ed both users explaining the situation and asking what their RC stated, but is there a way to review the RC after you accept?  I usually don't print postage and get the books ready to mail at the exact moment I accept the RC, so I'm sure in the future this will happen again.

Any help? :)

Thanks!

Nicole

Unfortunately, at the moment there is no way to review an RC during an active transaction.  When the transaction is complete the RC's will appear in the details on the Transaction Archive, but only once the swap is finished.  You did what I would've suggested already by PMing each member and asking about the content of their respective RCs.  That's pretty much the only way to review an RC without having written it down someplace before accepting the request.

Thank you both! Now I know it's not always good to accept RCs at midnight when I'm half asleep :)

Have a wonderful day!

Nicole, another thing to consider is, unless the other person specifcally DID ask for plastic, you could leave it off of both and be safe.   You probably already thought of this, but I usually jot the RC on a post it right then and there (w/ the book title) so that I'm covered later.   I tend to have this problem even when I was not half a sleep, LOL.

I'm sorry that you found yourself in this predicament.  I always want my books to be plastic protected and I realize that others do not.  I'm wondering if that Christmas wrap cutter that Scotch is advertising would help those who get plastic wrapped books when they don't want them.  I wonder if it would easily open the plastic without hurting the book. It should be easy for a person with arthritis to use.  Just a thought!

I heard from the person I thought had the RC.  She requested no plastic wrap because she has arthritis and has a hard time getting the plastic wrap off.  I normally do use wrap, so I'm so glad she had her RC like that.

Thanks for all your help everyone-I appreciate you taking the time to respond.
