Just a quick new feature we're offering. Under Contribute -> My Contributions we've added a new option called Contributor Activity. You can use this to quickly see the number of contributions you've submitted for the current month and all previous months. Note that this only counts when a contribution was first submitted as a "complete" submission. That is to say, it won't show when you update guides, only the very first time it was flagged as "Complete". Same with review updates, etc.
Why did we add this? Maybe we have a particular reason. :) Either way, it's a neat way to track your progress over the months/years.

@Eevee-Trainer - I have only submitted trophy lists this month (and all of 2018), not regular cheats or codes or anything, and they're all classified as cheats on this new monthly activity page. Are you sure you're not mistaken about your submission totals?
Well here's what I able to dig up looking through my contributor page:
Achievement Lists (by day): August 13th - 18 August 14th - 30 August 15th - 12 August 17th - 18 August 23rd - 7
Cheats (by day): August 6th - 3 August 8th - 1 August 13th - 4 August 17th - 27 August 20th - 7 August 23rd - 1 August 27th - 8 August 28th - 1
My Activity page shows 99, as opposed to the 137 there. (And of course that assumes each cheat is just one code/achievement/whatever. A good chunk are just one thing - boss tips, glitches, etc. - but there's also achievement and password lists among other things.)
My initial assumption while tallying was perhaps the system was just going to count each as one cheat? (For example: a list of 100 passwords would be 1 cheat on the activity page.) Or perhaps that crossposting would affect it? (So you could crosspost the same glitch to multiple applicable games but it's only 1 on the activity page?)
I'm not 100% sure how it works - I guess the big thing would be to figure out how it works first. Maybe I'm just jumping to conclusions.

So far Game Data and Credits are already distinguished but Franchises are not. In the contributor page there are 3 types of submission (Release Data, Franchise, Game Credits), so why not separate the log as well? I submitted a few Franchises this month and it's currently registered as Data submissions.
Another suggestion though, I think it's better if the log is revealed to the public. It's not something that should be kept in secret. Especially for Contributor of The Month contest, we can track each other progress in order to grab the prize, and we'll know the reason why GameFAQs selects those winners.
