I follow the prepubs occasionally using this: prepubs sorted according to  progress.

https://www.logos.com/search?Status=Pre-Pub&Language=English&sort=shipdate&pageSize=60&sortBy=Progress&limit=60&page=1&filters=status-prepub_Status%2Blanguage-english_Language&ownership=all&geographicAvailability=availableToMe 

There are many (about 200 ?) that should ship today and then the shipping date moves one day further. I became curious on 31st January and stated to follow daily and that seems to be the pattern.

Is there some explanation to this, is my search format outdated or am I becoming odd or what is going on?

Your search is spot-on and the day-by-day moving one forward is actually happening - I have two or three of those in my open PrePub orders. Those books are Abingdon-published eBooks, so you may get an answer in the specific subforum. My understanding would be that FL didn't receive the files necessary for automatically building the books and shipping them, which triggers the automated moving process.

My experience in the past has been that sometimes such PrePubs simply vanish (even from my PrePub orders) without explanation, indicating that FL lost the desire to ever produce them. One example I seem to remember was an Advent devotional from the past, based on the lectionary (I had hoped to collect three of those to have years A, B & C). 

Since there are some good quality resources in there, maybe it helps if more users look through the list and order some, so FL sees us "voting with our dollars" that we really want those books produced.

A large number of those PrePubs is now live! 

Just in case someone has pre-orders open for those and reads this: at least in my case the system didn't ship any of them when the products became available. I can see the open pre-orders with a shipment day in the past (15th/16th of Feb), but the product page doesn't know about that. Solution: One can simply buy the live product and that's it (price did not change - yet? - from pre-order to live).

I’ve had this happen before. If I remember correctly, FLEB pre-orders don’t trigger automatically. Someone has to manually do it so they probably got busy
