I don't know how common these issues are but possibly they're worth solving:
[1] In trying to send the link for the 2nd page of members of this group where I'm the founder & co-admin [https://www.dailykos.com/groups/rural%20and%20small%20town%20amerikos/edit?filter=members&page=2 to another group's adminr to illustrate where to look to see if an invitation actually was issued to a given kosak, i tested the link first and got a 403 error message. This hinders helping/teaching.how to work the redesigned pages.
[2] At the moment, at this one of the group's members/profile page/screen for admin usage https://www.dailykos.com/groups/rural%20and%20small%20town%20amerikos?filter=members&page=2 There's a white block at the top saying "No Members So Far"

    As commented also at the GROUP MEMBERSHIP helpdesk thread:

    It appears that in some cases (conditions unknown) the invited person will show as invited at the group's members page/panel but the invitation won't have actually reached the invited person's kosmail inbox at all.

    It also appears that admins and editors may never receive the "such'n'such has been invited to join this group" kosmail.

    And it may take 15 or so hours after an invited person who did receive it --and accepts it-- before admins and eds receive a group kosmail "such'n'such has accepted as a member of the group".

    Likewise if/when a contributor is promoted to editor and editor to admin ... or possibly no such announcement will occur at all.
