I am missing several badges

I am missing several badges in my profile. For the last week, I have been doing several Image contributions, as well as Title Link and Name contributions for actors appearing in these images. The problem is that, after several of these images are approved, these contributions don't appear in my contribution history, so I think that's why my badges aren't being updated. But, when I look separately at each one of the contributions via the email received and look at the status of each of them, they are all approved.

My profile is: https://www.imdb.com/user/ur84840277
Here is an example of an approved contribution, which would account for Name Link, Title Link and Image badges, but this contribution doesn't appear in my contribution history:

Hi, Jasper. If I understand correctly, badges are only updated on an annual basis (as in, like a week before or after every new year's transition). Regardless, for certain, nobody's image contributions are logged in his/her update history. You can only keep track of your own by recording the submission reference number when it is presented on the receipt confirmation page or by reading the inbox of the e-mail address associated with your IMDb user account.

Thanks. I was wondering why they didn't appear. It's weird, I think it depends on some badges, because I recently got my Poll Taker badge, since I have been answering polls for the last 2 days, and that badge was given to me automatically. That's why I am wonderin

Jasper,
I'm not totally sure about a new badge (although I strongly think they get added whenever someone deserves them, not just at the end or beginning of a year), but I do know for sure that when you already have a certain badge, they get updated very fast after you've reached a new "milestone" number. So for example, you currently have a Lifetime Image badge saying 75+. If you submit 25 more updates that get approved, you won't have to wait until January 2019 to see the number 100+. The same goes for the Gold vs. Silver vs. Bronze badge. (for information on the latter, see: https://www.imdb.com/badge/)

You are correct Marco, at least in my experience. One of my badges just updated in the last week or so to show a new total on it.

Please keep up the good work too, Jasper. On IMDb's galleries, there are some millions (perhaps billions) of photographs and screen captures that of people who or productions which aren't tagged! There are so many it actually makes my head spin.
