I've had two reports of issues with the promotion from the Waitlist to Attending recently - both on the same event.
I have fixed this behavior. Someone earlier in the waitlist with a +1 will prevent someone later on the waitlist from being added, even if that later person doesn't have a +1.
The second one was on the same event where there were about 12 people on the Waitlist when on December 17th a response was changed to Not Attending. In this case no one was promoted and the spot remained open until on December 18th a totally new response was received. This person should have been the 13th on the Waitlist, but instead they were immediately accepted and filled the 10th spot. This is definitely a bug, and the leader had to reach out to them, explain the system incorrectly accepted their response, and manually remove them from the event.
I wasn't able to reproduce this, but I believe the changes I made will prevent this from happening in the future.
Also, on the /viewevent page, I'm now include +1 numbers when displaying the number of people on the waitlist as well as the number of people ahead of you on the waitlist.
