I think when the next newsletter that goes out to
everyone that there should be a paragraph about
respecting Holds--why they're there and to respect
them.

Maybe Claire will tell you who the validator was.

Hi, all.

I feel like a broken record, because I'm about to
revisit a topic we've
talked into the ground, and then some.

There were four books with "hold for Shannon Dyer"
on step one. Suddenly,
there was only one. So, I went searching for the
missing three, and where
did I find them? In the admin queue, one of them
with the "hold for" still
in the title.

Before checking the books in processing page, I
contacted Nat Barrett, the
submitter, to see if, for some reason, she might
have taken them back. She
said that she hadn't, and expressed displeasure that
someone would blatantly
ignore a hold for.

I really do not understand the need certain
validators have to take books
that are specifically held for another person. I
don't take books with other
people's names on them, so, why do people take books
that are being held for
me? There are plenty of validation choices out
there, without taking what is
being held for someone else.

Does anyone hear me, or, am I preaching to the
choir? Lol.
