Short, concise description of the idea
Tie up invites and applications to join.
Full description of the idea
If someone uses the "join community" link when there is already an outstanding invite, they should be approved automatically.
- It's tidier.
- It saves time (they don't have to wait for approval, we don't have to approve them).
- It stops people being accidentally rejected from joining by other moderators (e.g., for communities where trying to join without being invited is an auto-ban.)

- On request to join, check for outstanding invitations; if there is one, automatically approve. Otherwise, do what you do now.
