....reads the bitterly ironic footer on every page of Last.fm. This entire time I maintained faith that staff would do their best to migrate us to the new website with at least most of the mind-numbingly absurd design decisions we've bemoaned for months resolved. I made excuses and empathisized with staff and mods, because I've been in similar situations in the recent past. I held on to promises that this that or the other would be fixed or returned. This miserable excuse for a launch FOR WHICH YOU HAVEN'T EVEN BOTHERED TO REMOVE THE BETA FEEDBACK BANNER shows me that the trolls and naysayers were right all along. You really were fully planning to ignore your most dedicated users honest and practical suggestions and rush out this most half-assed excuse for a replacement to the current previous site.

I regret everything positive I ever said about this entire process which has occured to what was once my favorite website. An important tool for music discovery, social interaction and study, which will now die the same agonizing death as MySpace. Dearest mods and devs, please read this and ignore. Laugh about it at your staff meeting. Maybe even right a saccharine, condescending respose. I eagerly await your half-heaterted attempts at damage control.

And what is wrong with you CBS execs? OK, so your plan to buy Last.fm and bleed it dry failed. Why not sell it to someone who actually gives a shit? Are you doing this on purpose to permanently kill it off and then right-off the loss? Congratulations in advance. I hope you're all real happy with yourselves. Go remodel your office or fuck your secretary or just smoke big fat dick cigar.

I'm hoping alin1 will create a few more style features on userstyles.org. I've already installed the 'no circular thumbnail/avatar' style they created. (See here, if you have Stylish installed: https://userstyles.org/users/155937.)

To fix the largeness of the text and images (or their 'closeness' to the screen), I've adjusted the zoom settings to 75%. I shouldn't have to do this, but at least the problem is not impossible to rectify.

With time and patience - and, hopefully, the re-introduction of major features from the devs' end (as promised) - I may eventually settle on something I like. But, please, let's not stretch this primary stage over the coming year (or years), staff, like you've done with things in the past - I don't have that much patience!

Thank you. If you have Tampermonkey installed on Chrome (Greasemonkey on Firefox), you can also reverse the title - artist format.

new thing is absolute shit. especially for us users who have over 100k scrobbles and more than 1000 artists in library who share and enjoy music and learn something new and socialize in music community.
I really want to switch to another site who ha simmilar features like OLD last.fm, if they're going to push on us this new version.
