I was just going over my Wish List and noticed that I have the same book listed 4 times.  The title, author, ISBN, request date, position are all the same.  Has this happened to anyone else?  I'm wondering if I should chance deleting 3 of them, leaving me with just 1.  Any thoughts?

Did you just notice it? It might be safer to let it be for a time, and see what happens. Maybe there's a glitch that will fix itself?

As the PBS system gets more complex, this seems to happen on rare occassion Jennifer. 

Happened to me awhile back, it allowed me to add a book several times (same wl postion)....I just deleted the extra(s) and retained one, it seemed to work fine.  Recently another member posted a similar issue and contacted TPTB, and was informed they probably needed to correct her wishlist as the member options were likely to loose her position in FIFO.  Take your pick  of solutions surprise

Elizabeth,Denise- I did just notice it.  I usually organize my wishlist by estimate and  I was going through it and changing some to auto-request.  I think I might let it be for a little while because I'm 1 of 6 and don't want to take a chance on mucking up my my position.
