It was possible to publish subtitles using different YouTube accounts under the same Gmail.

YouTube requires ~5/6 YouTube accounts to confirm a draft before publishing the subtitles, but it is no longer possible. Did the mechanism changed?

Can anyone confirm?
What's the current requirement for publishing subtitles?
Is there a way to publish subtitles as a viewer with only 1 Gmail account now?

Unfortunately, due to some young abuser who abused the translation system, YouTube has changed the rules. Under the new rules, contributed translations won’t be published to YouTube until the channel owner has manually approved them.

Hopefully, YouTube can figure out a smarter automatic publish mechanism later.
