Summary: User unable to join community
Original Request:

I am one of the maintainers of the Enchanted Inkpot community (http://community.livejournal.com/enchantedinkpot/ ). Membership is moderated. We have a user who who like to join the community, who has requested membership and been invited to the community by me. However, she says she is not receiving the membership invite emails, and when I or the other maintainers attempt to approve her requests to join, we get an error message saying that action has already been performed.

After several attempts, she created a new LJ account, and we are having the same issue with that one.

Any suggestions? I've never run into this problem before.

Thanks in advance!

Thank you for your report. What is the name of the user who is trying to join? (Both the first username and the second). If the user hasn't validated their email, they cannot join communities.

I checked with her and she has validated both of the accounts. They are sybil-nelson and sybilnelson.

According to information available to Support, neither of those usernames has a validated email address. Please direct the user to [http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=11] for information on how to validate her email address. The user will be unable to join your community until she has completed this step.

I apologize for the misleading error message that you received.
