Hi @pierstincknell, welcome to Meta Trac.

The submission page doesn't do a very good job of showing errors unfortunately. The script that verifies that submissions actually run WordPress looks for generator tags in either the site's head or in its feed. It doesn't look like those are present on either site.

I'd suggest to just not hide those and try again. :)
