This is a bug affecting this web platform since 2019: https://instantview.telegram.org
InstantViews cannot be submitted to the Telegram team for review anymore.
If you create a good template and click the "SUBMIT TEMPLATE" button, it says:
Are you sure you want to submit this template?
Make sure that your template satisfies all the criteria for a perfect template.
Note that it will not participate in contest.
Please note that the pop-up says that I will just submit this template, without participating to any contest.
If I click on the "CONFIRM" button it does nothing.
Internally, I see that the button fires the API action
sendToContest returning the HTTP status code
200 with a JSON with just
false. This API call is nonsense to me, since the popup said "it will NOT participate in contest" and since I don't want to participate to the contest. I just want to propose my InstantView template to the Telegram team.
I tried to contact the Telegram volunteer support but I think they don't have enough documentation and they were not able to say "how" I can have my templates approved. They said this is not a bug and that I should wait for a contest. But this answer is confusing to me, since I don't want money.
Thank you to allow people to submit their InstantViews templates!

I have no adblocks. I tested it in all kind of connections. I emptied cache.
