[groups] behavior after requesting a group

Issue #2347 resolved
Robert Jäschke created an issue

After requesting a group on the /settings page, the following things happened to me:

  1. I was redirected to /settings. Better: redirect to the groups tab of the settings page and show the user a success message.
  2. The newly requested group was not listed under pendingRequests. Better: list the group there.

    I just realized that the pendingRequests refer to my requests to join a group and not to my requests to create a group. I think this needs to be made more clear. In addition, a similar feature for the pending group creation requests would be more than helpful.

    I don't think that it'd be interesting to have a list of all requested and pending groups of a user in the user object nor on the user's settings page.

    I agree, this does not belong into the user object. My main argument was that there should be some confirmation that shows the user that the group was successfully requested.

    This could be solved by a real success message/page or by such a list on the settings page.

    I think that since we have a list showing all pending group join requests, it makes equally sense to have a list of all pending group creation requests and I see no good reasons why it would not fit onto the settings page.

    Group creation requests are now shown on the settings page (if there are any). As well as that, users can delete the group creation request.
