Reporting a bug here seems to be the only way to even ask what I might be misunderstanding about translatewiki.net. I've been trying to sign up as a translator, with the hope of translating wikilove messages for the Simple English wikipedia. [https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Thread:Talk:WikiLove/Simple_English_Wikipedia I asked a question here.]
I tried twice to make a signon at translatewiki.net, which results in email that includes "Thank you for applying as a translator at translatewiki.net. I regret to inform you that I have rejected your application, because the quality of your translations did not meet the requirements." Well, duh! no signon=no translations=0 quality rating.
I've read all sorts of material including
[https://translatewiki.net/wiki/FAQ the FAQ] and its discussion page, which offer nothing that I can discern to be of any help. [https://translatewiki.net/wiki/Support#Translator_rights_43528 This discussion] includes the interesting statement "(we have no idea how many users we're losing by restricting account creation, also because none speaks up)", but without a signon I can't "speak up".
[https://translatewiki.net/wiki/Translating:How_to_start The How_to_start page] says "When in doubt, request support!", but the support page says "You cannot post new threads to this discussion page because it has been protected from new threads."
I'm quite expecting that the answer to this is that no translators are wanted, and the Simple English wikipedia is in a limbo land where it cannot be helped, but I thought I should try my best to get a message through to someone, anyone.
