after losing some time filling in all the fields, I got the message "Error. Please fill in all of the write-in outsourcer fields."

Now, as the outsourcer fields are declared "optional", what's the logic of that message? By the way, I did fill them in, except for the e-mail.

Please make this feature work.
P.S.: It would save much time if it was possible, instead of filling in all the fields, to indicate just a link to one's website where the projects are already listed, at least for all those translators who do not communicate with their clients in English.

Let's see what the problem is Feb 15, 2008

Hello Martin,

I've just added a test project to my profile to check this, and it seems to be working fine. Could I ask you to open a support request and include there the specific information you are trying to add, and I'll see if I can help you with this? Thanks!

Best regards,

did you include outsourcer data? Feb 18, 2008

I'd prefer not to, but if this makes the entry fail, you should not call it "optional".
If however you succeeded in entering something without outsourcer data, I'll send you my
failed entry page which I don't have handy at this moment. Thanks!
