Why would my place in the wishlist line move down?  The other day I was #3 of 3 on the list and now I am #4.  Probably does not matter as that is the HC version and I am next in line for the PB version, but just curious about why this would happen.

There is something in the Help Center about this, but basically it's something like these:

- another account was on vacation and this book was not on auto-request, then that account came off hold, putting the member back in line where she was

- a book that was en route to a member went lost and she went back to the front of the line

- a transaction that was pending was canceled by the sender or timed out

'Someone with the book on their wish list may have taken their account off of hold.    The book may have gotten lost in the mail to another person.     There are several reasons this may happen now and then.

Yep, what Cozi said!  The Help Center does have a section on this if you'd like to see all the specific ways it can happen. :-)

Why did I move *backward* on my Wish List?
