New Problem Reporting: cannot report my problem

I have the pictures of people writing and 'Translate "the writer"'

I enter "de schrijfster" and it says it should be "de schrijver". Well, not if the writer is female.

I try to report the problem and only get "The pictures do not match the given word". Well, I can't tell if the hands are male or female, or even if the person sitting at the typewriter is male or female. So I would really like to suggest that "de schrijfster" is a valid answer. But there is no option to do this.

Can we go back to more flexible problem reporting please?

I don't even get the option to discuss it!

Fixed it. Thanks for posting here.

Reporting problems with image exercises has always been an issue. For example, if you report "The pictures do not match the given word.", that report will never end up with the Dutch team. Posting on the forums is your best bet.
