I'm trying for a long time a way to delete scrobbles and artists that I do not wish to keep on my last.fm profile in the new version of last.fm and I cannot. Is still there this option or has it been modified?

At present it's not possible to remove an artist or album from your profile with a single click, though you can remove individual scrobbles associated with it.  This is something that needs to come back, though I don't know when.

Sorry Elliot, nothing has changed on this front.  It's in the backlog, but there's no timeline / eta at present.  I'll raise it again with the team, and when this moves forward I'll let you know.

Jon, you got to help me here. I play in a band called Dobbeltgjenger. Just discovered that there is an old Last fm page of the band. With old photos and songs that are not avaleble anywhere anymore, but its still avaleble on Last fm. We just put out a record and we are not allowed to have those songs out, in relations to our new label. 

However, I have not found any way to edit this. My name is Vegard Wikne and username is Vegardwikne. My mail is wikne@me.com. I am not alloved to edit wiki or edit pictures or anything. The artist manager is down, so I cant do anything through that either. 

What do I do? 

Best regards, 
Vegard Wikne.

Hej Vegard! Like very often written in this forum, you can edit like everybody else the wiki of your band and add pics, if you only scrobble a few dozen tracks before. Your account from 2014 currently shows 0 scrobbles. Your songs aren't available via last fm. It only shows how often people listen to your tracks. Last FM is using Youtube and Spotify for their musicplayer.

It would be really great to be able to delete artists again. I listen to a lot of audiobooks and they look really stupid in my profile. It would take tooo much time to delete 250 tracks from one book...

We're still not able to delete artists. I'm no developer but it really doesn't seem to me that it can be that difficult to add this functionality when you already allow users to delete individual scrobbles. All you're doing is processing the deletion of a long series of scrobbles by the artist name.
