Idea to Change Scrobble Name?

Idea to change the name of previous scrobbles - like an "edit" button. Many users scrobble under the wrong artist or song title and they just wish they can change this instead of deleting the entire scrobble or all the scrobbles.

But the requirement should be that you can only edit the entire track and all scrobbles together rather than individual scrobbles.
You should be able to change the:

- Artist
- Song Title
- Album
- Album Artist

This would be really helpful to so many people and maybe even be a "subscriber" benefit in the future. I know i would pay for it!!

And as you said before If it doesn't scrobble it doesn't count ~ so why should I delete precious scrobbles that counted before?

+1 Probably a better system than voting to auto-correct as you get immediate results based on your own tagging preferences.

yes, especially for tracks with fewer listeners that don't get enough votes

I have requested same feature long time ago - no response from the lastfm team. I have loads of crappy scrobbles because of incorrect spotify metadata.

I have a bunch of scrobbles I had to delete because of spotify too and now just tired of deleting them. I hope they at least read this post -_-

as much as this is a much requested idea, it seems that there are lots of problems with implementing this feature. here's an old forum link if you're interested: http://www.last.fm/forum/21713/_/756686?lang=es
with all this crazy redesigning going on with the whole website though, I think it's appropriate that they consider this idea since they're making everything new and whatnot

I feel during that time the feature was "possible" but they were to lazy to make it work. Though, with the way they are literally re-building many parts of the website they might as well add this feature.

I am on this also (my number one scrobbled song has this issue (I have it with "new version" attached to the title, and now I not only dislike it, but also it isn't really correct); I would like to rename it and also keep those plenty of scrobbles active -- I refused to delete the song even on old site, when it was really easy to do this; now it is virtually impossible to do in the way "delete one-at-a-time scrobbles").

But, frankly, I am pretty confident we will never have this option !
And I suspect their internal database recordings doesn't even permit this sort of option (the way that each scrobble is saved in the database).

So, I am one of the most grateful if this option  would be available, but .... I am very skeptical about it.

one could remove the faulty scrobble, then re-add it with the help of a third-party ap like Universal scrobbler, if one is in dire need of such such thing.

how ever still think it's something that this featuer would greately enrich last.fm indeed

Removing and readding is okay for low level scrobbles, but when you have a wrong scrobble but you've only noticed it after a few thousand scrobbles, removal is not really an option... 'Cause who'd want to remove thousands of scrobbles, because of a fault?

I would, and I did. Literally thousands. Having the option to edit already scrobbled tracks would be amazing.

I used to regularly stream music from Last.fm through Spotify on the old site. Big mistake. Many tracks would frequently get linked to random compilation albums instead of the correct release from the artist. As a result, the library pages for many of my all-time top artists are messy. I've tried to slowly fix it using the Universal Scrobbler, but that makes my library and charts less accurate.

It would be amazing if we had tools that allow us to rename albums and tracks, and to merge releases together - just drag and drop tracks into albums to tidy everything up in our libraries. I have a lot of loose singles from new albums that clutter up my library, but because most of my music is streamed from Spotify I have no control over the tags.

I've bin building small tools to make the scenario somewhat easier, though the last.fm api doesn't seem to support insertion of too old scrobbles.
That is; even if you wanted to maintain the date of the track when re-scrobbling the correct values of the track; it might simply not work.
by now I'm quit used to have faulty charts from time to time because of this.

can't see what's stopping them though, a regular sql database can have its entries edited just as well as added or removed

if we are lucky some last.fm employee explains this to us. I have undestood scrobbles are in files and editing them is a bit tricky. Lastfm, please give more details to us or correct my assumptions.
