True or false?

A WL book I posted  timed, but it's not in my transaction archive. I seem to recall that previously if a requester timed out, as the sender I'd see it in my transaction archive. Am I wrong on this? Or has this changed?

True.

If the member never responded, the request would simply roll to the next WL in line. If there are no other wishers the book would simply end up on your regular shelf.

OTOH, if the member specifically declined, the request would show up as cancelled in your transaction archive; however, it would still roll to the next in line or revert to your shelf.

If you put your shelf on vacation hold prior to the rollover or decline, the book will go on hold on your shelf and you can 'catch' it before it goes to the next person. This is especially helpful if it's rolling over more than once and the 48 hour holds have made the timing difficult for you to mail out.
