MALFUNCTIONING (original language) selection button, when trying to submit request for a translation!

I'm having trouble posting translation requests, because - even though the song whose lyrics I've just posted, has been correctly entered (labeled) with the language in question - in these cases, either as "Kurdish (Sorani)"; or "Kurdish (Kurmanj)", - when I go back to try to submit a translation request, the form demands that I enter the language of the song all over again, under "translate from", but the form does NOT let me select a language!!! - trying to press the "translate from" / select language button has no effect!! So trying to submit the request results in the red message telling me to specify the language, and that message stays there, and it refuses to allow me to submit the request!

(Please feel free to PM me with the answer, and to delete this message/topic, if it's not of general interest!)

Cases in point:

- Şiyar û Dijwar - Dilê Rezîl
and:
- Bane Şîrwan - Ba Dilim Bigrî

What shows up when you go to > http://lyricstranslate.com/en/add/request/1832178 ?

When you open a request for a song that already exists, you can't select the base language again - you can only choose the target one. I can't even select anything in the original lyrics, as the forms are all gray and unselectable.

Thank you!

NOW it works, WHEN I use the link you provided in order to access it! But when I tried to submit a translation request IMMEDIATELY after myself having posted the original song-text (and video), it required me to specify the original language in order to post (in order for it to be willing to accept!) my translation request!

--Which is a bit bass-ackwards, since often the reason someone posts new song lyrics in the first place, is because they're seeking a translation of them!

It's weird. I usually add new songs and their translations at the same time through 'Add new translation' > 'ADD NEW SONG' and that never happened. But if now you could open the requests you wanted, then it's fine.

I too, never previously had any problem immediately adding the translation, if I was posting the song and the translation...

I'll now have to wait until I again post some new songs for which I'm seeking the translations, before being able to check it again...
