The problem that we have for 9 months needs to be fixed ASAP. Half of the functions of this site are missing. Like:

1. Neighbours;
2. Groups;
3. Followers;
4. Recent activities;
5. Playlists;
6. "About Me" category [The limit is only 200 character limit, which is very unacceptable and selfish.];
7. Top listeners;
8. Recent top listeners;
9. The list of friends that are following you and how many times they listen to an artist that you are listening to. [I have no idea what was the name of it, but that function was great!];
10. Journal entries;
11. Blog groups;
12. Top music groups;
13. Recent groups;
14. List of tagging;
15. List of friends.


There are plenty of things that are missing here. We have been waiting for you for 9 months to return all back to shape and you still haven't. The scrobbling system for some artist are not working, many duplicate records are here at last.FM which is dead and rotten and nobody is even scrobbling them. On one official record that is, displaying on an artist page you can find nine duplicates. What is the point of having them? Banned them, they are useless nobody is even streaming them. And what does it mean "in a future release"- 9 months have passed. The Google company is doing a job faster than you. Moreover, they are the largest corporation in the world spanning almost 2 billion users worldwide, yet, it doesn't take them 9 months to finish a new Google+ page or Gmail like it takes you to finish this site. We want all of those functions back, NOW! Thank you.

I hate to say this because I agree with you 100% except for one thing: comparing LastFM to Google isn't actually proving tour point. Google is a multi billion dollar company and LastFM, while owned by NBC, probably has nowhere near the budget of a single Google project.

Eh, I'm more for to some other company buy them. CBS /or/ NBC has plenty of money too, so I'm pretty sure they can hire a better engineer community team that is willing to work for this site. On the side of the note, Google company has own official Google play store where you can stream plenty of music. [Not that much as last.FM, Spotify or DEEZER, but still...]

I think it's already too late. None of my friends are even using this site anymore (apart from scrobbling), but it's not like we didn't warn them. We also gave them hundreds of suggestions, yet they wouldn't listen. These guys deserve to be looking for new jobs, that's all I can say.

Same here. It looks like they more care about what is inappropriate when it comes to posting a comment and what not instead of taking care of this community and our suggestions and ideas.

Hi Samson-91,

While we appreciate your feedback, I believe most if not all of these questions have been asked answered elsewhere in the forums.  Please use the forum search before starting a new topic.  

The majority of features you've listed are planned to return in the near future, so all I can say here is to please be patient and bear with us -- we're committed to getting as much done as we can with the team we have.  If that's not enough, all I can offer are my sincere apologies on behalf of Last.fm.  I know it's frustrating to wait with limited information, however in most cases our team are reluctant to openly discuss features that are pending development, since the details very often change during the production process and we don't want to further disappoint people by promising things that ultimately aren't delivered.
