What are you saying? that a wildcard cannot be nominated as one of the two bikes for scoring team points?
From the below information it will seem to me that a wild card can score points, if he is the highest placed rider for the team. Thus the first comment is BS!
Points

Riders and Constructors (manufacturers) compete for respective FIM Road Racing World Championship Grand Prix titles. Teams compete for a MotoGP™ Team Championship, which is different to the Constructors Championship as there are multiple teams competing on machinery from the same manufacturer.

For riders, the points that count towards their World Championship total are those gained in each race. For Constructors, only the highest placed motorcycle of a given Constructor earns points, according to the position in the race.

Teams in the MotoGP™ class are in principle comprised of two riders. All points scored by both riders in the Team, including substitutes or replacements, count towards the Team Championship.In the case of a one rider Team, only the points scored by that rider count towards the Team Championship. Wild card riders do not score points for the Team Championship.

For each race, Championship points will be awarded on the following scale:

1st place   =   25 points
2nd place   =   20 points
3rd place   =   16 points
4th place   =   13 points
5th place   =   11 points
6th place   =   10 points
7th place   =   9 points
8th place   =   8 points
9th place   =   7 points
10th place   =   6 points
11th place   =   5 points
12th place   =   4 points
13th place   =   3 points
14th place   =   2 points
15th place   =   1 points
Results in all races will count for the Championship classification (this was not always the case historically).

Die vraag was vir die span en so ook die antwoord. So jou BS comment is BS.

Nah.  Not me saying so.  I read that on MotoGP website awhile ago.  Basically says so in Cocky's post as well, i.e. a wildcard rider cannot score points for the team.

Was just trying to understand what you were saying

So when does the eligible rider to score for the team gets announced?

You use to be able to take the wild card, i.e. third bike and nominate him as point scoring member, effectively making the regulated team member "wild card"
The same rule applies to WRC and more often used in WRC

My understanding is that in MotoGP, only the two official riders, contracted to ride for the team can score for the team.  The exception is when such a team rider cannot ride and he is officially substituted by another rider.  That substitute rider can then score for the team.  A wildcard rider is not a substitute rider, nor part of the team, although the team may well have supplied the bike and support, so he cannot score for the team.  As far as I am aware, the nomination is not allowed in MotoGP.

Ag no. 2SD set a bad example, no need for the Doctor to follow it.

Yamaha usually prefer to use their factory test riders as substitues.  In 2010 it was Wataru Yoshikawa, but I doubt he still races.  The other test rider, Katsuyuki Nakasuga dud ride as a wild card last year at Motegi.  Maybe him? 

It would be interesting to see who will substitute.  Will Yamaha go for a test rider, or possibly a younger possibility that they are eyeing for the future?

Hehehe, that's funny.

Nope, kicking leg OK (right leg, same one he broke in 2010).

I forecast in 2010 that he will never win a MotoGP championship again - i may have been right.

Surgery was successful.  Internal fixtures only which is good news as the healing time is much shorter than the external fixtures.
