[Bug Investigating] Accepting Pending Members Gives BAD PANDA

DrgnMastr says:

I reported this bug months ago, and it is still not resolved.

My groups all require new members to be accepted from the Pending Members page.

Let's say I have 3 new members to accept.

The second I click on Accept, Flickr goes off to do its work, adds them to the group, but returns the BAD PANDA page. It should return me to the Pending Members page, but ALWAYS gives me the BAD PANDA Page.

Clicking on the show previous page, takes me to the Pending Members, now with 2 showing.

Each Accept does the same thing. Puts the member in the members lists and returns the BAD PANDA page, and one must show previous page to get back to the Pending Members.

Just had a new member request for one of my groups, and thought to try it with Firefox. SAME PROBLEM. Member accepted and then Bad Panda.

Sorry to be late to the party... but me too. Been a few weeks. The "we know about the problem and are fixing it" message should be retired.

Surely not . . . its been 'resolved' . . . so they say again and again. Still getting regular visits from the panda here though.

It has been like this since November last year, when there was also an issue with it not showing who was making the request to join, and then when you clicked on the view the members photostream it came up with a bad link. The only way you could view who was requesting was going to the group page and clicking on the pending members name there and when you accept you get bad panda. but it works properly if you decline the request
