Hi!  I just added two new books to my WL.  When I went to my WL to change them to autorequest (can't we have a popup box or default setting for that?) I noticed that I was listed as "1 of 96" and "1 of 50-some".  That's not right!  Are those true, or some weird error?  How can I get it fixed - I don't want to jump ahead of people in line!

Thanks!

Denise

Denise, wait a while and check them again--someone else just reported this same thing happening and a little while lafter posting the numbers corrected.

I've noticed glitches like that too, and after I checked a while later they were correct.

There's been a few recurring glitches, one of which is that you add a book to your wish list it shows you as 1 of X.  This is only a glitch in how it appears to you and is only temporary each time it has happened.  Once the glitch is gone you'll find yourself properly at the end of the line.  Similarly temporary glitches include having a message, reading it, and then still being told you have one, as well as spending credits that don't seem to go away (but if you only have one and you try to spend ite twice you'll be rightfully told you don't have it).  These glitches also show 0 members online at times.  I'm not sure as to their cause but I am sure that PBS is working on them, or working on something that somehow creates the glitches.
