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.

Thank you for bringing up this issue! I really wish they would bring this function back as well. I'm trying to make an extensive Spotify playlist of basically all the songs I've ever liked and my last.fm library was invaluable for helping me with this...I've been scrobbling for 10 years and it seems like the usefulness of this site has run out for me now.

Wow, that's a laborious process for you. There used to be a way to export all your loved tracks via an "Export" link on your "Loved" page. Now it's gone -- thanks again, Last.fm! Good work on killing that functionality too and making your site even less useful to us. I used to use that functionality all the time, myself.

Previous prior to the unnecessary changes last.fm has made, we could use http://thewit.ch/lastspotify/http://www.spotibot.com/, or possibly http://playlistify.org/. But it appears neither works -- THANKS YET AGAIN, last.fm! You guys really care about us users, dontcha? Damned British wankstains.

http://www.spotibot.com/ MIGHT work...it might just be taking a long time. I would give that a shot, Tegan.

Yeah, it's terrible. What is also terrible is that you can't go to a page directly, you have to do every page one by one. If I want to see my artists with less than 2 scrobbles I have to go through 30 pages.

You can change the page number in the URL.. but nevertheless, it's terrible, I agree.

Chad - I really appreciate the suggestion but seems to only work for tracks you've Loved on last.fm, which I never really did. I think I only have about a dozen Loved tracks, and this playlist is up to 2547 songs! Haha.. definitely a laborious process.

:( Assuming the service I linked to works, I guess the fastest solution would be to go through your the 2547 songs and "love" the ones you want to keep -- and then use that service again.

I've found that "loving" tracks gives (gave) really good recommendations on last.fm.

Is this "feature" coming back? Has anyone from last.fm ever commented on this?

Can someone from lastfm please comment on this, it's been 4 months!? (4 months since the post mind you, not since the website went live. It's ridiculous really.
