I have a question about wishlists.  I have a book on my wishlist, and when I first put it on there a little while ago, it said I was number 296 out of 301.  Now I just checked and it says I am like number 303 out of 313.  I get that people can add it to their wishlist (making the number of wishers increase), but what would cause me to get bumped further down the list?

Someone might not have accepted a request within the 5 day timeline so the person got put back in line at the beginning. Or someone could have taken their account off hold or their RC was declined. Any of those I believe would put people back at the top.

1 of 2 things:


1. Other people had their wishlists on hold and came off hold.

2. There were other people ahead of you in line that had requestor conditions and the book was cycling through some of them.

my guess is that the bulk of it was people coming back from Holiday vacations.
