Recently discovered the Hall of Fame page, and that got me thinking, how are the contributed data counted?

Say I make an update where I:
correct one actor, add one actor and a filming location
Does that count as one, two or three updates/points (assuming they are all accepted)?

IMDb doesn't officially publish the formula for determining the number of updates that a person has (presumably to avoid people trying to manipulate their numbers). But my understanding is that correcting one actor, adding one actor, and adding one filming location would count as three updates/points.

(I assume they have some safeguards built in to ensure that the same person doesn't get credit both for adding and deleting the same piece of information or other things like that.)

Thanks, that makes sense :)
