How long does it take for a Wish List request that's been Waiting on Member for 5 days to move back to my WL or go to the next offerer?  Is it exactly 5 days - so if I requested it at 10:02, it would expired at 10:02 5 days later - or is there a certain time of day (like 11 pm) on the 5th day that it will change over?

I believe it is a certain time of day between the end of the 5th and the beginning of the 6th day - IF they never respond to the request at all. If they do respond but haven't marked mailed, they actually have 2 more days beyond the selected send by date to actually mail the book.

Okay, they never responded at all, but I was hoping it would go ahead and send me on to the next person today.

It happens in the middle of the night agter the 5th day.  Probably something to do with everybody in the US getting covered by the 5 day rule (time zones interfere with a stated time deadline).  So it may be that someone on the East coast like me has a little longer than someone in Hawaii??
