Submitting episodes and a specific problem, additional questions regarding badges
Today I've encountered a very specific problem, which is partly my own fault. As I was adding some episodes, for once, I did not check my update history finding out where I've stopped yesterday, in order to continue with the right number today, but relied on what the title page told me. It said 99 episodes added (I always add 1.1 -1.99 and then go on with 2.1-2.99 and so on). While I was adding the sixth new episoed (2.6) and rechecked the data, all of a sudden I get the info that a different title already exists under that number. So, now I had to double double check everything from the start. Apparently IMDB added the submission from the day before just about the same time, and that is why I got numbers crossed. That was certainly annoying, and I had to resubmit said episodes, stating as a reason "Title Number Correction, from 2.2 to 2.22" (for example.)
Holy Jesus, I telly you, that was the first and last time I ever not checked my update history, and relying totally on the episode counter, before submitting continuous episodes. Jeez. And just to make sure, I also did not add further episode from this specific creator today. I will wait now, maybe until Monday, before adding more data here. I have other series in the pipeline as well.
Which brings me to some questions:
1) I assume that one single contribution, consisting of director, author, producer, 1 cast and a plot also equals 5 submitted itmes which will be counted for the monthly list, as 5 credits, so to speak, right or wrong? Just as, say, 50 movie connections or images will be counted as 50 items?
2) just how long does it take to update the badges in particular? According to my update history I am well over 1000 episodes, the badge still says 750. Does the update come automatically or is an editor in charge of that? I have the feeling that other Badges, particularily Images and Trivia, are updated faster than that 🤔 But I also seem to have observed the Updates to slow down when there is a Weekend; which leads me to believe that, in fact, an editor is in charge of that.
3) When I submit bio data, say Date of Birth and Bio - Does that count as 2 items; maybe 3, when I add a Place of Birth?
I don't know if I annoy you with that, but I am interested in these things, and if you can give me this info, or maybe an overview just how long these things take, and which specific "chapters" each badge has (1,5,10,25,50,75,100,150,250,500,750,1000 and so forth), I sure would be grateful...
