contributions via App not shown?

I made a lot of contributions, like adding a plot, correcting wrong images and so on.

Now, for the first time,
  • I used my Mac and the Firefox browser to enter it,
  • and when I look for my “history of contributions”,
  • I only find the one I just did.

What gives?
  • Are contributions via the (iOS) App not shown there?
  • Are only very recent contributions shown?
  • Or were all my previous contributions rejected?
    In the latter case, I'd refute from ever contributing anything (like what happened in Wiki“pedia”!), but I'm not that pessimistic. Yet.

Mobile contributions are not shown in that history because it's a different system. Email confirmations are sent, though.

I just had the opportunity to check, and app/mobile contributions also appear in the beta contribution history here:

Thank you, Peter, that was really helpful!



But my concerns were found valid now:

More than 10 of my contribs were declined, most seemingly because they couldn't "verify" them; well, then just ask:
- I read them off the video I wtached, or
- Shazam just found out.

This is VERY unpleasant:
a) I contributed information I wanted to retrieve MYSELF on this platform and it's now lost for everyone!

I'll put my results into my private notes, where they NEVER get rejected.

Actually, after reviewing the reviews, "they" are even worse than Wikipedia ever was, and much less transparent in their decisions, actually close to Zero.

But my main object has been solved, so I "only" have to find out what in the f___ing hell is wrong, either with my contribs or, more likely, with the guidelines and the people who supposedly guide them.

I have to emphasize:

Much worse than Wikipedia!!!
