Why are "Image Contribution(s)" not shown/logged in our IMDb Contribution History?

I think the title explains clearly what I'm trying to ask. If not; 

▶ The images I've contributed, let's say, submitted, the images I've submitted to IMDb have a contribution ID for each image I add. There is a contribution ID for everything you add on IMDb, and most of them are logged in your contribution history, except for images. They do show my/our contribution ID right after I/we have submitted an image, but it gets lost once I/we close the tab or the submitting menu. (Ain't nobody gonna remember that long a*s ID)

Do I have to enable any option in settings, or is this default. If this is how it is, then I request an editor to change the conversation type to "Idea" and the title to "Image Contributions log in your/our/my contribution history" (or whatever suits well).

For those of you who don't know what's a "Contribution History" is, check out this link or go to https://contribute.imdb.com/.

Okay, I get it, the number of image contributions is way higher, and you people (admins) don't log them to prevent spam. But at least give us something to keep a record of the images we contribute.
You already got a badge for it.
Yeah, I know we have badges for our contributions, but that doesn't tell us what exactly we've have contributed. It also doesn't tell us how many get approved out of our total contribution.

The reason behind this conversation: 
I've been submitting few images for the past week, and most of them are not yet added. They do not break any IMDb TOS or guidelines; they are very decent pictures.

How to get to that page, I mean now I know, because of the url you've provided, thanks to you. But is there a specific button on the contributor or IMDb page I need to click to get to that page?

If not it's okay, I'll just bookmark that link.

Edit: Btw, none of these two button redirects me to the link you've provided.

Nevermind, just realized it's a beta version, the page is still in development, and y'all are testing it.

Thanks again.

Hello there,




Does this kind of problems still happen?

It might have happened to me. There are tons of pending submissions (images, plots, etc.).

The Estimated processing date for them (as currently shown) was December 7 and 8 (2019) but as you know, Today's Dec 9, 2019.


Here are some of my pending submissions;

#191206-204911-074000 - Estimated proc. date = Dec 7 (there are like ten more of these)

#191207-025314-825202
#191207-205529-970502 Estimated proc. date = Dec 8 (tbh, Idk how many of these are there)

I can give you all of them if you want.


FYI: If you believe those Hindi-language plot submissions are pending because of Contribution Beta Opportunity: Multi-lingual Plot Outlines, there are a few other submissions of the same type which were approved.


Q: I want to know if they're stuck or still under processing.



- I didn't create a new conversation because there's already too many of this type of issue.

Although the system gives an estimated date, it is not really unusual for it to take longer.

Yes @bderoes, that's where/how I track all my contributions. Thanks to you.







Edit: There are plenty more like this.

As you can see in this gif, not all of them are pending, some of them were approved. And it's not serial wise either. It was bothering me, so I thought I should better ask y'all.

Edit: Sorry about the short gif, the software is on trial version.
