Getting Credit for Missions

Not sure where to post this. Not like any other forum I've ever used so here goes.

I have done several of the things outlined in missions but they still show as grey and not completed. For instance, I think you would all agree that I have set an avatar but it is not showing completed. I've also followed and liked but not received credit in missions.

Nobody has responded to my helpdesk email request after several days so that is seeming like a dead end for my first week at thwack.
