unless it is a Restricted Membership group with an active Pending Subscription Member Notice, then it should say:

Good idea in theory, but I would not add that, even if there is an active pending notice, because even if there is one, it may not require a response. It's conceivable that some groups simply send a pending notice informing the member that they are acting on the application in some way, shape, or form, possibly giving out some interim info, etc. Their membership decision may or may not include responses from an emailed questionnaire.
Good point, as there currently is not a good feature to require answers for applicants.
The current Pending Member feature is used by some as an "Additional Information to join required" while others use to provide "Additional Information to applicants"

This reaffirms that there needs to be an additional Member Notice type created so that the 'opposite' uses are no longer commingled, which would support the additional clarity needed in the 'confirmation-request', and a better applicant screening process than current cumbersome workarounds.
