I put my shelf on hold yesterday because I already had 18 request that I had to package up and get mailed.  When I just logged on to the site my shelf was off of hold and I now have 8 more request.  Has anyone else ever had their shelf come off hold with out them taking it off????  I know my shelf was on hold because I had a few people pm and ask if I was taking it off. I pm'd back and said not until next week.

Were these pending wish list offers that got accepted after your hold started? Or were they books that had already been requested and were in the 1-hr buyer's remorse window? Those are the only two ways I know for you to get a request while your shelf is on hold.

None of the above  LOL  I checked before I put it back on hold and there was nothing pending.

I think you might not have reset the date for the hold to come off. I did that once too. I think it defaults to one day and you must set the calender yourself.

I was thinking the same thing. I also did it once.
