    I am well aware of that! Hence why I am asking the question as to what peoples confirmed QSO percentage is. I log every one of my contacts that are confirmed verbally both directions.

    I log on paper in real time. If i don't think the contact is complete (I don't have rules...you know when you know) then I don't upload them. I get quite a few on eQSL who claim a contact afterwards and if they are in my paper log where I've noted a broken QSO I'll manually confirm them. Maybe a 73 got missed or something. I'm not a soup Nazi trying to avoid confirming contacts.

    I never bothered to calculate my QRZ rate until now.
    3929/5763 = 68% return rate.

    I operate > 99% CW and log in a logbook. After a session or at most a couple of days after a session, I use TQSL to enter my QSOs into LoTW. I put all QSOs into LoTW even if I'm pretty sure the other station doesn't use it. Current confirmation rate is 54.8%

    I do the same thing. I need to get better at taking notes on broken calls. Usually if its that bad I can not get enough of the callsign to make an educated guess. o_O

    I agree. I don't log a contact that does not 73. That may not be how everyone else does it, but those are my standards. I think the "required information is Call Sign, Signal report and, a piece of information. Some count the signal report as the information. I (my personal opinion) think a 73 (required information) is necessary. My feelings aside, it is the gentlemanly thing to do.

    If I am wrong, anyone, please feel free to correct me.

    You are absolutely correct. But, there are a surprising number of people (in my local club) that simply do not know how to use LOTW (TQSL.)

    It is not intuitive to some hams.

    LOTW: 61.3%
