Last.FM has shown us that they are going to ahead with this planned upgrade with broken/removed features. It's very possible that they will fix the site over time, but they will never be able to take back their silence and their disregard for user feedback.

If you're still as angry as I am about that in particular, we've been invited by the Libre.FM staff to work with them to improve their site. They're open to discussions. This is a really big deal. There have been countless people asking for somebody to build a new site. This is that chance to be a part of that.

It's time to roll up your sleeves and at least try. After all, it means nothing if you complain without actually trying to fix the problem. I'm hopeful that the Last.FM community, regardless of what skills you build to the table, could make something that feels more like home. This meeting of minds is nothing more than that at the moment. It's a chance for us to discuss the future and figure out what we could potentially do.

I hope to see you guys there!

I am up. And I feel exactly the same about all this situation and staff and ignorance of our feedback and ideas. But Libre as far a I saw has much to improve to be like old last.fm especially as they don't have scrobbler so i can't use it while listenng music from my computer. But I'll join and suggest what I expect from their site so I can use it. I hope others will join too :)
but still I am making high hopes on Hatchet! *.*

It doesn't strike me as difficult. You'd just need it to route to turtle.librefm servers. Android apps do it.

I mean if somebody wanted to write it into an app.

In terms of your computer, you'd need to edit your hosts file to do it. I haven't tried it off hand. @Nat.zingg has and had some instructions.

They should allow us to scrobble from ITunes in Libre.fm.
