 When one gets told that the translations get locked for the good and
the bad and further questions on how to do so go unresponded, how would
you do that?

 And claiming that this would be the only way is just plainly wrong.
There is e.g. no way to contact the person who did submit or proofread
and miss severe problem to make them aware of the issue so they can
avoid them in the future - which is a *far* better approach to the
problem at hand.

 So long,
