I requested a book and went through four people before I had an acceptance.

I have another that will soon go lost because it hasn't been marked received.

Could be computer troubles.  I've been having server problems on and off for the last week.

Definitely frustrated! I started out on the WL at over 100 on a new release. I was pleased it was moving fast but still anxious to get to the top. When I got to #3 I went ahead and put it on auto-request because I had a credit all ready for it and I finally made it to the top only to to have it time out because of no response from the person who posted the book. I probably missed out on several copies in the time I was waiting as well :( Let's hope it goes better the second time around.

I hate that, too.  Every time we have a large influx of new members we go through this with the ones who don't stick around or who don't know the rules.  It's a pain - growing pains!
