My wishlist says I only have 186 books but when I try to add one, the little box pops up and says that the book wasn't added cuz I have 200 books on my wishlist.

Is this a common error?

Yep, it means you sorted your list by author. Books with no author don't appear in a "by author" sort. Switch to "by title" or "by date" and you'll see all 200 items.

I encourage you to find the authors for those books, and submit data corrections for them. It helps the entire database, and also might get your WL books noticed more :)

I was wondering about this.  I've gone through the books on my WL and I think I've edited all of the ones missing authors to have them.  :D

Michelle, you may have to wait a few days to be sure. We are running a little behind on approving data edits. But, should be caught up in a day or so.

I can always use correctors. To become an approver there is a waiting period, and a process. But the first step is to become a corrector and get started on that waiting period :)  Send me a PM if you are interested!
