I've only used this feature once before and then only for a few days. What I'm wondering is whether friends can still see my WL whilst I'm on vacation hold? At least the books on auto-request? Or are the auto-request books only to have a chance on FIFO?

If you are on vacation, people can see your WL, but they cannot post a book directly to you.

The list will be there without any buttons.

Your friends can post auto request books to you if they can access the membership friend post option. Your name will still be on the pull down list of friends to post to.

Put WL books on auto-request and your WL will be visible as if you were "active" (e.g., not on vacation hold).   People can see your WL, post directly to you, and you'll receive WL books posted via FIFO if you're #1.
