I had a WL book offered to me and accepted right away, but clicked "order more from member" and found one more I wanted within 2 mins.  Later, went back and saw they had canx due to WL book not meeting my RC, but 2nd book is still awaiting "acceptance"--shouldn't the whole order have been cancelled?

Depends, I suppose.  What does your RC state?  Is it something that could apply to one book but not another from the same household?

Possibly the second book had more than one copy in the system and has rolled over to another person .

Maybe she hasn't logged on again to see the second request.

I have the RC "no smoky smell and not currently in a smoking household".

You can accept or reject individual requests from a bulk order. If I got your order and one of the books smelled smokey to me, I'd decline only that one.

Or it could be something like - the WL book came from her mother's house, and she smokes and the FIFO book does not. One never knows.

It sounds like the wishlisted book request went through right away and the second book was delayed (is it 90 minutes?) to give you a chance to change your mind.

I think the WL book went through 2 people. I  have requests pending now (5 of them all with no smoking RCS).  None of htem give me the option to cancel for not meeting RCS now that I've accepted the requests.  I can only cancel for other reasons.

So to me it sounds like person A cancelled your WL book (maybe they damaged it, had an emergency or who knows).  They didn't see that you added another book using the Order More FRom Member button. Or maybe they are hoping to still send that one but need more mailing time (would make sense if WL book was posted by mistake or damaged).  Meanwhile the WL book was reposted quickly and that person declined your RCs.

My WL books are on autorequest and I think the lag time is shorter than the buyer's remorse time for bookshelf requests on posted books.

Did you click on the PM button to see if the request was with the same person or if it had been denied and passed on to the next person with a copy?

If they deny your RC, the request isn't "cancelled", it is rolled to the next person with a copy. Each book request stands on its own. If they deny the RC for both books, the WL book has no other copies so it can't be roll to the next available copy and it goes back to your WL. The available book will see another copy and it will be requested for you again until a copy is obtained, it isn't just cancelled because it can't be gotten from the member with the WL book.


It could also be a case of the member denying all RCs on WL books, but accepting them on bookshelf requests. You'd need to check to see if it is the same member and PM to find out.
