------I hope this won't get passed by by Last.fm stuff and those who made this terror.
Please be united and if this doesn't work then it's all about we switch to something better. BUT better now we do something before this awful change takes over immediatelly! ------

For ignorant people who doesn't get the problem of our complains, what we don't find suitable in new version:
- HUGE WIDE FONT and Customization for Touch Screen Devices ISN'T SUITED for PC DESKTOP users
- Enormous Header Banner and Big CIrcled Avatar takes the MOST space when you go to Profile page
- NO RECOMMENED ARTISTS when you go to specific artist you listen
- NO PROPER LIBRARY WIDGET on PROFILE PAGE which can be normally viewed. And not just circles with small images where you can't see anything especial. 
- ENORMOUSLY HUGE AMOUNT OF LOST SPACE, BLANK SPACE and GREY CIRCLES
- no COMPATIBILITY
- no NEIGHBOURS
- no FRIENDS
- no About Me proper SIDEBAR on profile which use HTML and BBC
- no INFO on Albums and Artists who are INDIE and from other countries not supported by Spotify or other USA/UK based sources
- no PICTURES to upload on Albums and Artists
- Too large Banner when you go to Artist's page and TOO BIG title of artist, so if it's long whole name won't fit
- No proper Recommend by genre 
- no Groups, Journals
- no DATA about HOW MUCH FRIEND LISTEN TRACK OR ARTIST that you visit
- Too Long Profile page WITHOUT any info on actual person or music taste!
etc.
- no Videos
- no ADD ARTIST MANUALY in library option. so we can listen them later when we gain their music
I can't remember more but there was MORE of fails in new version and which aren't to be corrected! nor Last.fm Stuff answered they will correct.

those who remember more of misspoints please add in comments. So we won't sound like bunch of haters as some lovers of new layout describe us. x.x

Wow, they are desperate to get rid of the complainers of the new design. Can't even petition to get the old site back because the new site is not working out.

Last.fm is definitely heading towards oblivion here. I guess it's really time to move on, looking forward to the new Hatchet site, probably better to support and hopefully will bring the functionality last.fm is tossing out the window.

Can you please tell me what Hatchet is? I'm completely out of the loop and really wish to keep updated as the users here know more than I do, that's for sure! Thank you.

There's not much about it, other than this http://blog.hatchet.is/. I don't know how sophisticated the site will be but there isn't a beta site yet so we can see what it looks like.. but i suggest you subscribe to that so that way you can be notified when the beta site is up ready for testing. The more people involved the better that site will be.

Stop using "ignorant" as a substitute for "people who don't agree with me".

We get why you're complaining, but it's hard to take you be on your side when you start name calling every time someone disagrees with you.

And maybe, just maybe, the last.fm staff stopped taking you seriously when you wrote this: https://getsatisfaction.com/lastfm/topics/its-like-a-cross-between-late-period-myspace-and-9-11#reply_16020374

I don't call 'ignorant' people if they aren't. Those who don't agree with me I call ignorant if they don't have arguments for their disagreement and just like to don't agree to the most users who have reasons for complaining to calm fuss and look cool.

Also what was wrong with my writting there in that comment? I just said that I want somehow to find a way to store my data of 200 000 scrobbles over those 6 years and 6000 artists I had in library, since if they will not bring back old site nor take some changes to improve this new version everything I had will be lost upon my closing account here.
And I care for my music statistic.

I don't know if staff didn't maybe understand me because I am not using more 'fine' words from english dictionary because I am not english native person and it's hard to find good phrases and correct words for me to express what I want. 
But I think point of my seriousness and despair over all this can be seen in my comments and pointing of important things from conversations.

And already many other posts who had proper feedback and complains are shutted down, deleted and closed without explanation.
I don't know why. 
We all do this because we love last.fm and will support changes, but this isn't change it's going down with reverse from great to worse version of site which users can't find useful for their needs and purpose of this site.

There are plenty of threads still open with genuine complaints - hundreds in fact. You know that because you've posted on most of them! ;-)

But seriously, no-one blames you for having an opinion. It actually makes me a bit sad to see so many users upset with the new site, and I really want to believe that last.fm will pull it out of the bag and re-add most of the features like they said they would, and in a few weeks we'll all be happy and back discovering new music like we were before.

But you're just coming across as really, really angry. Like, angry to the point where I find it hard to read what you're saying because it all just seems like a mix of shouting and name calling.  And I wonder whether the last.fm staff feel the same way. They can't reply to everything, so I wouldn't blame them for ignoring the posts where it seems like they're being shouted at!

But hey, you're passionate about last.fm. I can't blame you for that. And to be fair, you speak much better English than I do Japanese :-)

I don't think it would make the slightest difference to some posters if the Last FM team pulled it out of the bag. You only had to see the forums on the old site prior to the announcement of Beta to know that some people will complain about anything. The sense of entitlement is immense in some.

lol Chris japanese? you know that language is pretty easy if you get to see a little into it.. yeah thanks but I still am not well acustomed to phrases and writting and spelling words right on english.

to the topic. yeah about those not deleted threads, that I answered, most of them aren't answered by staff. especially well written on with all misspoints we see in usage of new version by that girl with fluent english!

About it, I tried to see something positive and to say ok, new version ok new innovation to refresh site. But as I already said many times now - this can't be considered new version since it's cheap unconsiderately made thing just to fancy new look.
I used Beta for 2 days when it was just proposed as switch version for testing. I left huge feedback of what I didn't find useful in that new version. 
They DIDN'T announce launching of new version, so we could store our data in case. 
I lost 2000 artists ith no scrobbles, and 1800 artists with less scrobbles. I lost my journals with so many informations. I lost my About Me section, half of links are missing in the box they left me so I could copy it.
That was the first thing which made me Angry as you say. But not that much.
2nd what hurts the most, is that this new version ABSOLUTELY didn't give ANY damn to our feedbacks. I left personally feedback a MONTH ago. And other users maybe earlier while it was in progress of talking. BUT no nothing was accepted.
Why I lost hours on exploring and taking notice of new site if feedback isn't even read?
3rd thing I am angry is: they NEVER answered my questions from the start nor on twitter nor here. It's like they checked from which country I am, and found it unimportant to listen even my complaints.

4th - EVEN BEFORE on old forums, I was trying to get stuff to fix some trivial things like WRONG redirects, Correcting info on artists without label etc. Nothing was answered for years. and they launched new version with EXACTLY SAME errors, and even more errors.
not only that, problem SAME ARTIST NAME SHARING SAME PAGE exists for ages. Nothing was even spoken from staff to try to solve this. AND NOW on new site, it's the big problem because of recommend thing messed up.
On Old site we could control it somehow to not bother us, but not now.

How do you expect that I can expect that they will change on better?

At first I wasn't angry, but now I really don't know how I should feel. Last.fm meant as much for me because I am musician myself and my life goes about music mostly. So this means I lost so much and they totally don't give anything so I can think positively if that something will be back or corrected.

As for staff. They had planty time seeing right posts and right threads going to the core of problem, but they answered just trivial posts with SAME thematiq.
They could just do ONE BIG POST for SCrobbles, ONE BIG POST for SHoutbox thing beeing back and like that for every problem. so people just could comment on it who still have problems with it.
They didn't do anything to MAKE IT easier to calm situation and work it to better.

I also before wrote to last.fm asked to give them help and assistance for the section of Asian music info correcting and helping with sorting out. but I got never answer from them.

Others who had knowledge in Programming, Coding etc also wanted to give help, posted on forums. But nothing of that was listened. Because of that many are angry not me. 

The main problem isn't pulling out. But leaving site to be useful to users in its purpose. As I wrote already somewhere - Livejournal changed updated innovated BUT NEVER CHANGED interface and layout in that way so users would complain like this and couldn't find it useful for their needs and PURPOSE - blogs, posting. The same goes with Tumblr, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook etc.
and last.fm. new version looks like incorporated version of all those sites mixed together with fancy halfy done regular music site who doesn't last long.
Even if most features are back, site won't be practical i usage. Especially in layout and customization for Mobile Devices, even if site supports PC and Mobile devices.

as for the comment from George. what are staff grown up people with job or kids to not differate posts about real complain and just posts about throwing tantrum?
I really don't see point behind that conclusion of yours..
As we speak for old forums, barelly anyone from staff answered seriously or considered something. Critique is made to be considered and seen as mirror of own thoughts and action's reflection and to correct something that is maybe allright from own perception.
We are not talking about personal blog.
We are talking about SITE with THOUSAND of users.
This won't use staff and one person only. So if not working and listening together nothing could be gained.

I agree that I do not really like the layout. Very blocky and outstretches many images so they are blurry.

However, I believe most of the features you posted about are coming back.

The real question is, why weren't they there in the first place?
