Here's how it works:
  1. Anybody can ask a question
  2. Anybody can answer
  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top

In Google Groups, if you allow people to request membership, you can have them answer a custom question (in the new Google Groups interface it's called a "New Member Question"). But the old Google Groups page for accepting pending members had a column title "Reason" which displayed the answer. I do not see any such column on the new interface and can't find anywhere where I might see that information.

The new Google Groups interface has a "Reason" column under Manage > Members > Join requests. I do not know when this was added.

I cannot find this column anywhere either. But you could review pending users under old interface (probably only in limited time, until new groups roll out completely). Just type this address: https://groups.google.com/group/<your group name>/pending
