If they wanted to, would it be possible for someone more helpful to actually tell me how many Golds are ahead of me ?

Also, will the system send me an email if my statuts changes to confirmed, or is that too much to hope for ?
The automatic waitlist clearance system looks at more than your tier. It works on a points system, taking into account the letter class that's being waitlisted, tier, date/time of waitlist, route, onward connections, etc.

That's why an agent telling you that your #2 on the list with a Gold ahead of you means very little. It's all automated.
