Cannot Join FLARE22 Challenge Despite Verified Account ¶

Dear Grand Challenge Support,
I'm experiencing some issues trying to join the FLARE22 challenge. According to the instructions on the challenge page, it states that:
- Register on the website and verify your account.
- Click the green 'Join' button to participate in the FLARE22 Challenge. Your application will be automatically approved.
My account has been verified, so theoretically, I should be able to join the challenge without any issues. However, when I click on the "join" button, I receive the following message:
Your request to join FLARE22, sent Mar 26, 2022 at 20:28, is awaiting review.
It's possible that this issue arises from a prior application I submitted to join the challenge last year when manual approval was required. However, my application was not approved for some reason. This year, as the challenge doesn't require manual approval, I'm wondering if my previous application could be inhibiting the automatic approval process for my current application.
I'd greatly appreciate it if you could look into this issue for me.
