I just got a request for a book and it had RCs. I accepted because a) I can meet the conditions, and b) more importantly, I've already had PMs with this requester as it's someone I've been communicating with about a book and I'm posting directly to her shelf.

Anyway, I clicked on I Can Send This Book, but didn't click on the next page where I have to click, "I Can Mail in Two Days" or "I Can Mail Later,' because I wanted to give myself an extra day or two to read the book and then click on the "I Can Mail Later."  I just got the request, and even though I CAN wait 5 days, I figured I would pick a mailing date by tomorrow, after I read about 100 or so pages tonight.

Now, when I go back to my account page I get the screen with the Requester Conditions again. Do I have to do all the steps at one time? Is that why it keeps going back to the RC page?

Yes, you have to do all the steps at one time or it will go back to the RCs.

You have to pick a mail by date when you hit accept or it doesn't count as being accepted.  THere is no open-ended option.

Thanks! At least I knew I'm not going crazy, or having an endless loop of computer farts. (Sorry, that's the best word to describe the unexplained glitches that sometimes plague computers and websites.)

ETA: I guess hiccup could be a better (more polite) word to use...:-)
