Hi, I posted a book that has 149 people on the wish list.  The first three requestors had conditions and I did not feel comfortable sending the book to them (no must, no smoke, etc.)  because my house is over 100 years old and can have a musty smell.  Now my book is no longer on my bookshelf, I assume because I turned down three requestors. 


I'm not sure what to do.  If I repost, I'm sure it will go again to those three people and I'll be right back where I started.

Did you say "Does NOT meet Requestor Conditions" or "cancel"?

If you hit Does Not Meet Conditions then it should have passed on to someone else. If you just did it at the time of your post then the next one was probably on autorequest.  So it wouldn't show up on WL hold immediately.

If I you hit "I cannot mail for other reasons" then it removes it from your shelf.

If it is in a wait for a request it will not show on your bookshelf...

If the book is in a 1hr hold, it will still be on your Bookshelf with a grey (!) next to it.

If it went into a 48-hour hold it will be on your My Account page on the Wish List Hold tab. As long as you continue to select that it does not meet RCs, the book will remain posted and roll to the next person.

If you select cancel, or cannot mail for other reasons on the RC page, it will remove your book from the system.

If you do repost, it will be offered to the requesters you have already denied, but selecting - Does not meet RCs on each one should have it go past them and get to the next person wishing for it.

Thank you, I think I must have hit cannot mail by accident.  I think I'll wait a couple days and repost.
