I just posted a WL book.  It shows on my account that there's a WL hold.  Only one person was wishing for it.

I went to the member's WL to see if I have any other books that she has on her WL, but it still shows the book on her WL that I just posted to her.  It shouldn't be showing on her page anymore as I just posted it to her.

I'm confused. Has this site just gone mad today?  surprise

The servers are a little overwhelmed at the moment.  How often do you see 2000 people online on a Sunday?  surprise

I think there may be some hiccups on the site, because of the increased traffic due to the announcement of the new fees.

Plus, they are probably still working on system changes...

I've had a horrible time trying to stay on this site today.  It may also still show since there's an hour in which someone can change their mind...just a thought.

It could be that people got the email about new charges coming February 15 and want to use up their credits before then.
