Indeed suggesting improvements to the English text should not be blocked by the 3 languages limit. I took a note to fix this when time allows.

NB: English text originally comes from the source code, so it's not a translation. It's the original text all translations derives from. Developers (including BGA admins) not being native speakers, it's quite perfectible, hence the functionality to request changes (that have to be validated by admins, following some awkward mass edits that were... not good at all).

Nice, thank you. I've created a report for it: https://boardgamearena.com/bug?id=26147

While this is under the attention, I also have a related suggestion. It would be nice if we could disable the emails from these English change requests: https://boardgamearena.com/bug?id=26143

Some games (such as Chinese Chess) are originated in non-English-speaking countries and needs to be translated into English.
Sorry if duplicate post.
