Members joining restricted group via web - bug
Members are joining restricted group via web without moderators approval, please fix this ASAP! We are getting new member notification for persons who have not been approved and they show up in membership list!
Whoops! I've been informed, and have confirmed, that "joined via web." is what shows when someone accepts an invitation. So it is not necessarily a problem to see that in a Restricted membership group. I had thought that accepting an invitation had a different description in the log.
We had this happen in our restricted group this week too!
I just this week encountered the exact situation. At Shal's suggestion I have a screen shot indicating that the "member" to an access restricted group joined via the web without moderator approval. I have another screen shot confirming that moderator approval of a subscription request is required. How do I transmit these images and the group name to Yahoo so that they can investigate and "cure" the situation? Thanks in advance for the help.
I now realise that some members who joined a group of mine were approved by other mods but they were not. They joined via this bug!!
@jay - the thanks goes to Raj. All I did was comment on it, and suggest that those with evidence of it happening also report it through the Contact Customer Care form.

thanks for reporting this Shal.
A screen shot showing "joined via web." in the Membership activity log, in a group with Restricted membership" would be solid evidence of an "impossible" happening. Such an entry should only occur in groups with Open membership.
