    QSO Confirmation Request System
    You can select QSOs using the checkbox to the right of the QSO and click the Actions button at the bottom to request confirmation. This notifies the other party that you would like for them to add the QSO to their logbook.

    The request can only be forwarded to logbook users; otherwise contact the party by e-mail.​

    You forgot to mention that the QSO can be confirmed only if the confirming party remembers and enters correctly the date and band/frequency. Most don't, and thus all of these QSOs remain unconfirmed. It happens to me all the time when I am on the radio and I am not on my computer, or I am away from home on the radio. Someone sends me a request to confirm, I see the request perhaps after a few days because I have a life and I do not spend most of my time on qrz.com (despite it might look like it from my recent messages), I remember the person and the QSO, but I cannot remember the exact frequency and the time, here you go, another confirmation is lost.

    I keep a log when I'm on air, and use the logging program to upload to here, LotW, QRZCQ, and eQSL.

    I have more confirms here than anywhere else, but LotW is catching up.

    I still send QSL cards. Actual, tangible, physical evidence of the QSO.

    3 yr old thread and nothing has changed, still hardly any confirmed contacts, the system sucks

    I think most hams are satisfied with the way QRZ log works. I am also sure the vast majority of qso's are logged to a computer then uploaded to QRZ and other places, and not manually as you seem to be doing. Enter your qso's on your computer and when you do have an internet connection, up load all new contacts at once. I did not check but I suppose there are applications to log your qso's to a smartphone for later use.

    Mine are uploaded by HRD automatically at the time of contact. I think W1DQ has it spot on.

    You might want to give this a try works for me when I receive confirmation requests.
    EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY ....If you require a confirmation from K3XR for a QSO please send an email to K3XR@xxxx.xx with all the details of the contact in order that I may be able to complete the confirmation.

    Most, not all calls you look up on QRZ have an email address which should help in requesting the information you may need.
