@BlindVan76, were these contacts submitted in a bulk upload or one at a time? There are several reasons you may not get credit for contacts submitted in a bulk upload. Too many of the below will result in outright rejection or a manual review by the Data Stewards.
If you search for those contacts individually, you tried to add unsuccessfully you will likely see that they were added to the database at an earlier date by another user. Likewise, if you do not find them in a search you can try adding them manually and if they opted out, you will not be able to do so. I have found that if I have a 'good' list 20-30% of the contacts get accepted. The larger the list, the more likely it is going to be rejected for a combination of the above. More often than not, when I have a list rejected, I break it down into smaller lists. Often that does the trick.

Good morning @BlindVan76. It looks like you registered some time ago, but did not submit enough contacts to complete the initial probationary period for all new users. Initially, any contributions a new user makes are subject to additional review which can add some time (or as @AlanSmithee said, the contacts may have already been in the database). Once you reach 'Prospector' status, you will be subject to the same protocols as the rest of us, without the extra layer of review. More information can be seen here: What Does Your Rating Mean?
