Definition of an "active contributor"

It would be interesting to know the criteria determining those contributors who are defined as "active", for the purposes of downloading the basic and extended datasets.

The latest information I could find from an IMDb admin is 12 months old and states the following:

"The Extended Datasets are available to those who have 1000+ approved contributions in the last 360 days, otherwise the Basic Datasets are available with just one approved contribution in the last 60 days."

Does this still hold true? And if so, is there a time delay between submitting contributions and being granted access?

That sh-u-u-ure is a lot of approved contributions over one year. I can't believe that anyone could meet that standard, because THERE IS LIFE OUTSIDE OF THE CINEMATIC WORLD!

I had 6480 approved credits in 2019 mostly crew credits on two tv series that were broadcast in the last few months of the year. It took about an hour to add over 100 credits for an episode checking the end credits carefully. It is not hard to get to 1000 if you are careful and accurate.

If you cannot devote about ten hours contributing data over a year then I doubt if you will be willing to spend the time it takes to get any value from the additional data.
