Hi ~

Not sure how this *should* work, so I'm asking here....I just posted a book that had 4 wishing members.  After I posted it (now I see it on my bookshelf), the book has 3 wishing members.  However, there is nothing in the "My Account" page related to this book. 

I thought I should see the book listed, with a message like "waiting for member to accept from wishlist" or something like that.  But will it only show on the "My Account" page if it has already been actually REQUESTED by the wisher?
  I hope this makes sense.... 


Thank you!

If it's on auto-request, then you won't see it on your My Account page until the request comes through, which should be one hour after you posted the book. If it's not on auto-request, then it does show on the Wish List Holds tab on your My Account page.

if you look on your shelf while it's on the one-hour hold, it will show a grey circle with an exclamation mark in it in the spot where the selection box usually goes.  it you hover over that circle, it shows you it's on 1-hr hold.

thanks everyone!  I guess it was on auto request, since it showed up eventually.  I don't think it had the grey circle with exclamation mark, though, that gremlin mentioned.  Oh well, at least the mystery is solved and the book is in the mail!
