Okay I had a book on my wishlist..I received notice that it was posted into the system - I accepted it and its gone...it doesn't appear anywhere on my account and I checked the transaction log to see if the person turned down my request because I have a condition of no books from smoking enviroments or smell moldy...and nope wasn't there either...I'm starting to believe I hallucinated the whole thing!  Has this happened to anyone else?

It won't appear in your Transaction Archive if the sender declined for requestor conditions.

Help Center sez:

edited bcs first I thought you were asking about a WL book you posted, not a book you requested.

Heidi, I think you should have gotten an email saying that the book didn't meet your conditions and  why.  Actually, I think it was my book that you're talking about (I got a reqeust for Family Tree that had those conditions).  If so, I had to decline because of the "smoking environment" condition.  I get most of my books used and can't say if they've come from a smoking environment, so I always decline that condition.

I too thought that you'd get an email of your request was denied?  Maybe that's been changed in all the new stuff they're changing around here.
