NEW wishlist tag game

So this is the new wishlist tag game, as the old thread got too big to load on some smartphones, I just start this new one.
This is how it works:

If you like to participate, please check the wishlist of the member who posted last in this thread, and if you got something from their wishlist for them you are willing to send, you post here with "I tag xxx" and send the book to her/him. So you are now last and hopefully someone will find something for you and so on.
(So if you like to participate, please make sure there is something on your wishlist...)
I think it´s a great thing: you get something you like, you send something the person will like who gets it, and you even now the postage costs in advanced (if it´s too far and too expensive, you just don´t tag the member).
If you want/need to say something here besides tagging somebody or just want to bump the thread, please use the head line "still xxx needs to be tagged" or something like this, to keep it easier

And this was the beginning: http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/458771

Greetings from Austria!

OK, I will tag hippolein with "The Borrowers Avenged" by Mary Norton.
It is not listed yet but will send it on as soon as is possible.
Profile Image
for the first time since I started watching this thread, I've found someone's Wish List where I can see books that I have read or have passed through my hands! Sorry don't have any at the moment :-(

It will be a few weeks before I can post it to you, hope that's OK.

Hi there all Wish List Tag Game addicts!
I have been wondering about trying to avoid the blockages on the Tag Game, caused because no-one has a book from the Wish List of the person next to be tagged.

With Schwester's consent I am starting up a parallel thread, same rules as the original game. Both threads will be active and hopefully twice as many taggings can now take place :)

have looked at granted wishes not current wishes! Will make sure however I find something on yorkshire-lass's wishlist to send her & then it won't mess up the thread Will Pm her (again!!) & apologies!!!
Profile Image
Hey, Plum-crazy, I didn't know you could see your granted wishes...how does one do that?
Profile Image
Okay seeing as it's you... get the wishlist up & in the top left hand corner there's a "sort options" button, click that & it gives you the option to alter "display" from current to granted wishes. There's also "sort by" option so you can have the list A-Z by author, title or category.

Just remember to swap back for this thread...unlike me lol

Think something went wrong here - next person to be tagged should have been yours truly .....???!!!.
Profile Image
Bit confusing there....
This is not a tag but just trying to make it clear to others that appears 3vie IS next to be tagged.
Apologise for my part in any confusion..
Profile Image

Hmmmm...

very weird...... the last 4 posts i can see are oppem, mine, Chremajora and Vekiki. Something is definately going wrong..... any ideas/sugestions?
Profile Image
Kristykat tagged Plum Crazy, who wasn't tagging, but just commenting on something else. And then oppem tagged Kristykat.

Vekiki was actually the last person to be tagged, then got tagged by chremajora, and she got tagged by 3vie. So techinally, this one is the right line. If that makes sense.

Sorry Everyone for all the confusion- how embarrassing...!!! :(
Profile Image
If you set your sort options (on the top left, just above the original post) to "flat, latest first", you'll see that after Vekiki's tag, Plum-Crazy replied to an earlier post of hers without tagging anyone, but kirstykat by mistake then tagged Plum-Crazy as her name must have appeared as the latest post (if your sort options are set to the mentioned setting). Oppem then tagged kirstykat, but Chremajora, who couldn't view these last two posts (due to different sort options, namely "threaded full/condensed") went ahead and tagged Vekiki, which is actually the right tag. People with the "flat, latest first" sort option see the latest posts in descending order, even if they're replies to earlier ones, which people with 'threaded full/condensed' options don't. So anyway, Chremajora tagging Vekiki is how it should have proceeded. Maybe one way to resolve this is to ALWAYS put in the subject line whether you're tagging or not, regardless of it being a reply to another post etc. Does this make sense?
Profile Image
just to be clear ;)

So if I tag 3Vie then I hope that is correct!!

it's ok to deliver the book in person next weekend instead of mailing it. At least, I'm fairly sure that oppem will be joining our group for lunch at Little Village...

http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/9913168

It's my second time tagging, and I'm already breaking one of the rules I set for myself: the first book I sent hasn't been journaled yet. It's been almost 3 weeks (fairly standard for media mail), so I'm hoping it will arrive soon. :s

(Oh, and I just added a bunch of books to my wishlist - but not all of them have been published yet!)

Book given to oppem in person.
