In the Amara Louisiana Channel videos
, if a subtitler ticks the box for "These subtitles cover the entire video" for a given set of subtitles, it becomes impossible to further edit these subtitles. The Edit link works, but it leads to a page that says:
Sorry, you do not have the permission to edit these subtitles. If you believe that they need correction, please contact the team administrator
When that happened to me with the English subtitles
of David Hockney: Photoshop is boring
on June 6, 2013, I accordingly sent an Amara message to Louisiana Channel
, described as Owner in the member list asking him/her to check if this was caused by the team's permission settings, and if so, to correct the settings - and to explain them publicly in the team description.
On June 9, s/he replied: "we are relatively new to Amara and I need to ask. I will get back to you" but s/he hasn't so far.
I also e-mailed Darren Bridenbeck
, who is team owner and Amara staff, on June 8, 10 and 14, with the same request. No reply at all.
Moreover, it's not just that English set of subtitles for the Andy Warhol video that needs to be further edited. E.g. in the English subtitles
of Patti Smith: Andy Warhol would have known how to depict 9/11
, the misplaced comma and lack of capitalization in "his last supper, body of work" (1:22 – 1:31) has mislead almost all translators, who didn't get that Smith is talking about Warhol's variations on the "Last Supper". No way to correct either the original or those translations, because they are all marked complete and hence uneditable.
So could someone from Amara staff please correct whatever setting is causing this block?
Thank you in advance,
