I'm enjoying the new features of the new site, but right now I'm missing the list of artists ordered by name. I'm talking about my artist collection. Are you going to include that feature again? Thanks!

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled How can I see libraries with artists arranged alphabetically?.

I want to be able to look at users' libraries (including my own!) sorted alphabetically, not just by number of listens. How might this be achieved? Or is this another feature you didn't consider?

I also liked being able to sort by artist names as well as by plays. That is something I'm missing.. otherwise I like the new library -- just missing the option to sort by alphabetical order.

Will someone at Last.fm please answer this? Alphabetical sorting is absolutely essential for me.

I've been told that it's being worked on alongside other changes and improvements to the library.

It's pretty sad that last.fm has forced its users to rely on third-party tools to provide super useful functionality that they carelessly removed.

What a stupid decision on last.fm's part.

I really hope some competitor comes in and wipes last.fm out. They deserve to go under for how disrespectful they've been to their users.

This statement has been made more than 2 years ago, what the actual fuck?

Is there any further news on this? There are over 9,000 artists in my library, and I really relied on this feature to remind myself of things I hadn't listened to in a while.

Bumping. I used to be an almost daily user of Last.fm, but only get on a few times a month now, and pretty much every time I do I find something new and awful. I've seen a lot of examples of "don't fix it if it's not broken" and think this update is the winner (loser?).

Last.fm doesn't care about us anymore. It's time to move on and forget about them.

Wow. I can't believe this functionality has been removed.

Keeping track of scrobbles is the only reason I've been hanging on.

I'm trying to find an old artist I listened to that started with the letter "B" -- now I can't, thanks to your new interface which lacks this feature.

How lousy. I guess there's no reason for me to keep hanging on. 

You suck last.fm. Seriously. You all completely ruined last.fm. It's a sinking ship now -- I hope it sinks to the bottom of the ocean and becomes another thing of the past. You all deserve to fail miserably for what you've done.

I loved this function and I don't understand why you deleted.

Please get back this view, it was very nostalgic and a sort to knew your tastes.

I would also suggest to implement this view in the chart album profile.

Yes alphabetical list of artists and being able to show least played artists first needs urgently to be addressed, last fm please have courtesy to respond.

Bumping, bumping, bumping, waiting....
And while we are waiting, could you please make it possible to at least view the friend list (oh sorry, i mean followingers or followers or whatever it's called nowadays) in alphabetical order, like before? As it is now- since you changed everything- I have to google, to find my lastfm friends- it's easier and quicker than finding them on the follower or following (2 lists- stupid!) list on lastfm!

Bumping..... again! WoW Last.fm, you guys are really on the ball with these updates! This would be comical if it wasn't so sad. You went live with the beta site, without any of the coding done. It's mind boggling that it has now taken this long and still none of Last.fm basic features are back. Is the Last.fm staff 1 coder deep? Surely, you don't have a large staff working on this? Did everyone that had any idea of what they were doing leave? CBS isn't paying for this are they? So many questions and so few answers.

I used to be here daily for the interaction on the forums (Which no longer exist, either), but now I check in every once in awhile. Over half of my friends list no longer scrobble or come on regularly or at all. You've had to have lost over half of your users.... yeah, this update was brilliant (sarcasm)!

Kicking this to the top again. We were told this was being worked on a year ago, and nothing. I miss this functionality more than anything else on the site.

Seriously, sorting by aphabet is the most basic library structure there is. How can this be more than a day's work to implement? Especially since there is an algorithm already in place sorting artists with similar play counts by alphabet.

It is incredible how they have implemented new stuff, that clearly need much more work, and they still haven't resolved this! They clearly don't give f*ck about the users preferences, working only on their agenda!

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Library View.

are you guys planning to change the library view from that awful list to the easy and useful grid library view? it was so easy to navigate through all your artist with that view, now with the list, for us users who have +1000 artist it's almost imposible
i don't really mind if the list is still there, but at least we should have a choice to change the library view
i feel like i'm forgetting about tons of artists that i don't usually listen because of this library :( 
this is the only change i've been waiting since the new last.fm was launched :(

Why isn't possible to put my library artists in alphabetical order? It would be easier to search.
