I posted a book that is on 2 peoples wishlist. Well it keeps getting bounced back and forth because both people have conditions set and my book doesnt meet their conditions. Why does it keep happening? It seems like if I click on the "book doesnt meet conditions" button that it should be posted back into the system but instead it keeps bouncing from one member to the other and then back to the first person. I dont get it.

Very strange.  Might just be a glitch - there've been quite a few glitches lately with the influx of new members from Yahoo.  If it doesn't resolve itself soon, contact R&R.

I would contact R&R since it keeps bouncing back and forth - it sounds like a glitch.

I'm guessing if they both have conditions, and there's only two of them on the wishlist... the likely thing would be that they'd need to cancel the order and wait for your book to be requested before they wishlist it again. Unless they want to keep playing the game like that. :)

I'm having a similar issue w/emails about a dif version of one of my WL books being available.  I want the audio CD version of a book that has several listed in paperback. I don't want paperback, I want it in audio.  I'm getting emails everyday letting me know. Enough already.

Mary, in your account settings, there's a place where you can check off that you do not want emails about other versions of your wishlist books.  Check the box and it will stop.  Of course, it will stop for all your WL books, not just that one.

If they are the only 2 with that book on their WL, and they have conditions that  you can't meet, it will keep bouncing back and forth to them. Your best bet would to be to wait a while before reposting the book, keep checking how many have the book on the WL and when it changes to a higner number repost it then.
