Is this normal?

Hi all. I am using Warmshowers for the first time. I am currently in Italy. 

Last week I made four requests to stay with hosts. In response, I received an email message from one host who declined my request. I haven't heard anything from the other three. On My Hosts page, for each potential host it says my request is Pending. Even for the host that declined, it still says Pending.

I have just cancelled all four requests as it is now past the request dates - however for each host it still says the request is Pending. When I click on the host's name, I am given the option again to cancel the request, even though I have already cancelled each one (when I cancelled each one the first time there was even a pop up message confirming the cancel was successful). 

Is this normal?

I understand that it's Christmas time and this might be why I'm not getting any responses. But I'm also worried it just isn't working.

Hi Mark, Its seems the new reservation system doesn't really work. There are several other threads here discussing the problems. I would suggest sending messages to hosts (the old way of contacting other members) rather than using the reservation system for now.

Mark, I have to say : your chosen Thread title is a real teaser win the weekly award for most un-specific title ...

You may or may not realise, that these forums are barely  moderated ( if at all) and mis-titled Threads will go on till the end of the Universe, or the end of the Internet, whichever comes first.

So I suggest you could have titled your Thread : " Cancelled request, still shows as " Pending"...". 

That way, future Searches need not waste time with irrelevant content.

Cheers and tailWinds ..
