Will my votes still count if I add a great deal at once?

I've been an IMDB member for 8+ years, and over time, I've voted on ~900 titles. I have basic movie lists on my computer, and I started assigning IMDB style votes to movies as I watched them. I'm a procrastinator, and I haven't transferred many of those votes to IMDB yet Just this year, I've watched 226 movies, none of which have been added to IMDB.

If I add many votes at one time, will the system assume I'm trying to 'game the system?' I probably will get tired of searching for movie titles after about 50 times or so, and take a break until the next time that I feel like entering a few votes.

I'm not explicitly trying to reach the status of top 1000 voter, it doesn't mean that much to me; but I would like to have an accurate representation of the films I've watched. I'm getting tired of seeing recommendations for films I've already watched, or have no interest in, plus I'd like to be able to tell at a glance which of the top 250 films I've seen, for example.

No. I don't think it's a problem. I think using advanced search to make lists as ballots for rating in batches is common.

How would the advanced search work? I don't know if it would help me very much, here's a group of movies I watched in April (in that order, the grouping of 'cat' titles is just coincidental.)

Curse of the Cat People (1944)* - 6
Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore (2010)* - 7
The Private Eyes (1976, Cantonese)* - 6
Who Killed Doc Robbin (1949)* - 5
Cats Don't Dance (1997)* - 7
Bright Eyes (1934)* - 7
Open Season (2006) - 7

I don't think there is a shortcut, you'll have to search for each title. But I agree that it shouldn't be a problem that you add many votes in a short time.
