I’ve seen it and had no issues.

It wants the reading: にせんじゅういちねん

I imagine it’s because they’re trying to enter “2011nenn” which won’t work. You have to enter the full reading (posted previously). You could probably also enter the Japanese “2011” followed by “nenn” as well, but I haven’t tried that.
