I have a medium sized private G+ Community to manage.

As only a fraction of the requests to join actually gets processed, I batch ignore join requests every now and then to clean up the list.

Now a person who I previously ignored, requested to join again. This time I want to approve that person, but it seems like the community kept the ignore status and I can't see the request. I got a notification on my profile, but the person did not show up in the "Waiting for approval" list.

How can I fix this?

note: I sent this person an invite and it worked, but I need a better approach to manage ignored users for the future. – Baarn Jul 9 '13 at 11:43

Taken from this Google+ Help article

To access the list of all of the people you’ve ignored, click People People on the side of your Home page, go to the 'Added you' tab at the top and select View ignored. If you decide to add a person who you've previously ignored to a circle, that person will be removed from the list.

Bear in mind that ignoring someone is not the same as blocking. An ignored person will still be able to comment on your public posts, tag you in photos and add you to circles. You'll still receive notifications when an ignored person tags you in a photo. In addition, people you’ve ignored may appear as a suggestion again at a later time.

This is about the people I have ignored myself, not those ignored by the community. – Baarn Jul 9 '13 at 14:35
