It seems I am certainly not alone when it comes to this issue. Apparently, it's been a problem for a very long time. Too long. I finally found my confirmation email in my junk folder. I clicked where instructed to, but still, when I try to update my profile photo, or upload songs, I get the "confirm email" message. I have tried all of the fixes I've found mentioned here....refresh, clear cookies, start over with a new window, etc....nothing works. It's rare that I have time to devote to my songwriting passions, and when I do, it would be nice if it worked.
In addition...this forum seems to take me to a "Get Satisfaction" page. I had no problem uploading a profile pic there, thinking it was for my SoundCloud account. No such luck. Perhaps you should ask the Get Satisfaction folks how they manage to handle a simple issue like this?
