The Membership Requests page is split into two sections.
The first section, shows you the status of any membership requests you have made:
Shows the name of the site you have requested membership of.
Shows which member level you have requested.
If your request is still in a pending state, or has been denied then this will show your current level of membership. A membership level of "Public" means you are not currently a member, but have general public access to that website.
If your request has been approved, then this will show your new membership level.

Any comments that the site administrator has made regarding your request will be shown here.
This could be, for example, the reason for authorising at a different level, or the reason for denying your request.
There is one button within the action column for removing a request:
If your request is still pending this will remove your request altogether, in effect cancelling your request for membership.
If your request has been approved or denied, then this will simply remove this request from the list, and will not affect your membership.
