I just applied to join the programmers group (http://ubuntuforums.org/group.php?groupid=1) which is a moderated group and which I'm not a moderator for. I noticed a link for pending and invited members, so I clicked on it and was able to approve my group membership. That's a bug, right?

I can't reproduce the bug. :)

You sure? It wasn't approved when I looked (well, before I approved it)

Weird. I clicked the approve link, got no error message, reloaded the page, and I showed up in the list of approved members. So either: it showed me different info than it showed you, or you happened to approve my membership at the same time (and you didn't simultaneously approve the other pending members).

Well, it doesn't matter now.

It is moderated to prevent spam and flamers.
