Someone posted one of my WL books and after 3 days they accepted. Now it just says "Accepted" on my home page.

But when you accept a request don't you have to say right then whether you'll mail in 2 days or at a later date? IIRC it always pops up right after I accept an order.

I tried to find info in the help docs but I'm stumped.

I've noticed glitches with the details.  For example, I had a book order that I needed to cancel so I looked at the details which said "mail by (date)."  When I pm'd the member, she said she had already printed the wrapper, but the details didn't say "wrapper printed."

It means they selected the default "I can mail within 2 days" (and have not yet printed out your address), but in reality, they have up to 5 days to mark it mailed.

If you choose the "I'll mail later" option, you have up to 2 days after the date you choose to mark mailed, but it will never say when you printed it on the front screen.  You'll have to go into transaction details to see that.
