Here's mine, but I don't understand the 'pending' - it's been there forever, but I don't have any pending.  Pat

 

active = 107
deleted = 195
pending = 1
completed = 43
converted_to_reminder = 3

All-time WL Total: 349

I'm not sure what the 2 pending means.  I have 4 books I've requesting that haven't been mailed yet.

I thought my deleted was too high, until I say it is in line with most who have posted here. Thanks for letting me see yours!

Here's Mine:

Active: 200
Deleted: 504
Completed: 125
Converted to Reminder: 47

All Time Wish List Total: 876

LOL, I guess my lack of patience is evidenced in the amount of books I've deleted from my wish list.

I work very close to the huge library on 42nd St. in NYC and as soon as any of my wish-listed books become available at the library I reserve a copy and remove the book from my wish list.

That looks about right. I delete a lot, because I change my mind constantly or get tired of waiting and get a book from the library. I do have one pending (it's been posted but sender hasn't accepted yet) and active vacation just means my account on hold but everything is set to auto-request.
