I just pulled up a bunch of old threads about a new wishlist that is coming and it sounded very confusing. I have 200 books on my WL and want to know if I need to do something with them before the change. I read something about ranking books, getting rid of ones we don't really want...going to other places to get those books that we really want? What the crazy is going on???

In the Help Center : 

  • Coming soon: the new Wish List
  • ETA: Btw, just because you can read about it there, doesn't mean you will understand it. As I've been told, many people have read it but still don't understand it. So, don't feel bad if it doesn't help :)

    LOL...I guess I am now.  I'm just hoping that some of your smarts will rub off on me. :)   I read the information on that link about the new wish list.  I get it, mostly, but the math and points & all that is pretty confusing.  I know that it all boils down to if I rank the book higher on my list then I will get it quicker than if I rank it lower on my list. 

    OK, now I'm off to see if I can beat Sherry at answering some questions!  ;)

    OMG, that is crazy! I was fine until all of that point stuff. Why isn't the system ok the way it is? I've not had any problems with the old WL. I put books on, they come to me when they are available. Sometimes I wait a long time and sometimes I don't. I have a sizable TBR list, so it's not like I've been sitting around waiting for books. If I really really want a book, I will buy it, or get it from the library.

    Again, it was all going smoothly until the whole section on points. So, if I really want a book, I need to rank it high. Books that I don't want now or don't have credits for, I will put on hold...fogitabout the rest, I'm mathematically challenged! hahahah

    Thank you for posting the information for me!
