...today? I'm not. Everything is exactly the same as it was yesterday when I went to bed.

No, everything is still the same here too, annoying. It may take a time to get everything right on the site but it's just that why the f**k did they even force the beta then

It is exactly the same. They haven't done a thing. I still can't delete my account.

sadddlly but still everything the same. It's lik Last.fm doesn't give a F*CK about its users and music world sharing developement. x_x this really makes no sense for their corrupted un-thoughtful unuseful minds.

Well improvement in headers or scrobbles starting to appear, though scrobs incorrect, but I'll wait on the importing all info first. But screen pages are still visually painful and cumbersome. HUGE pics and tiny information. Zooming in/out helps some aspects but makes others worse. It needs redesigning. I'm missing all them pages of easy to read/view recommendations. I can't understand why they didn't keep best bits and just do a refresh. Guess its more ad money and less website work that's aimed for. I would of thought a music lover was involved with the direction of the site, obviously wrong.

Ditto.  They're "followers" now, but my nine missing friends are back, and apparently private messaging is possible again.

I recognize it sounded too much positive, a lot of things still have to be restored, but I'm seeing some improvements: above all friends are back, despite it looks like an operation in progress ('cause at this moment number of 'following' tends to increase and decrease without an intelligible reason).

I'm able to edit the "about me" section now, but it's still limited to 200 chars so it's pretty much useless.

also the old bbcode or html doesn't work so you can't put images in which is also pretty rubbish, most of the shouts on my page are complementing me on my amazing psychedelic cat gifs but now they're gone. http://www.last.fm/user/tweeglitch

Some things are restored, like the About Me section and you can now delete your account. Small things here and there as well. Otherwise, still crap.

Don't expect any ESSENTIAL, FUNCTIONAL and VISUAL changes before the data transmission from the old site to the new site has been completed.  This process is definitely not over yet, but looks in process/nearly finished.
So far they've updated the content of the inbox until the moment the monster went live, my library data are correct now (not talking about the design here) and the content of the friends/followers section is up to date now.
Still missing: Recent avatar changes, recent recent shouts and members who joined under ? weeks ago. 

For the next 24h I don't expect any of the changes we are all longing for, but by the weekend I think it's the staff's task to unlock the currently disabled functions on the site, so that users can at least be users again.

Off-topic: I gave them 1 week time to come up with something more functional.  Once this week is over I'll stop scrobbling until you can 'use' the site again and sign the petition(s).  
They received a whole wall of feedback from me since going live... and that was my last polite feedback.

And the (limited) about me section has just been unlocked too...
Still 200 characters and plain text only is too limited.

The private messages seem to be back (though it says my friends wil not receive them due to their security options, they couldn't have all blocked me all of a sudden, or could they). The number of friends is still wrong and all the shouts of August are missing, do you have the same problem guys or are all your shouts in place?

Friends' list is updated and "now playing" function works. That's only I see "new" on this site since yesterday.
EDIT: Ah, and "about me" section works too. (but it's still limited)

They added some functions, though they are still rubbish, thankfully the delete account function is active now, so I'm gone.

Let's put it this way: everything that is visible to the user is EXACTLY the same as it was 5 MONTHS ago, when I first tried it out and offered feedback.  Zero work has been done in all of those five months on anything visible to the user (I don't know about behind the scenes, but if the work on the outside is zero, then what is the likelihood of it being more than zero on the inside?)  So, forget about seeing anything different in a day or a week or a month.

I kind of feel like the victim of a swindler. I bought the promises, waited around like a sucker, and now he's gone. 

I am coming to the chilly realization that this is it.  This is the site now, take it or leave it.  If we see any changes to it in the next six months, I will be very surprised.

CBS Interactive is just using this site as a placeholder for the domain. They don't expect anyone to still be using it.

Or such is the impression last.fm keeps giving us.  Only last.fm can prove these suspicions wrong.  And I am not the only user with these suspicions.

I'm scrobbling! My numbers are still wrong but the completely new tracks now scrobble fine. Their previous scrobbles are still gone though.

I tried this time also like everytime to be quiet and just say we could get accustomed to this and that it will grow up on me..
BUT NO. This time we SHouldn't be just pussies who are affraid to support something that's good.
I am also nice person, but what's wrong is wrong. And you're just doing them in favor by saying that it would fit if it won't fit at all.
:/
That's why so many good things are gone from this world because humanity wasn't nice enough to support that good thing or just was lazy to admit that bad is bad. so bad now works instead of good. x.x
I am checking site every hour but it seems more and more useles. I can't use it at all for music. at all..

ok perhaps i was a little over effusive in my praise by saying it's growing on me like a fungus. Perhaps cancer then, it's growing on me like a cancer.

I like your comments, Mark O'Sullivan. Ewh, I can say that I'm getting used to new version too, but I can't really say what will be in next days. I'm confused between staying here and helping to build new last.fm and leaving this shit away. Besides getting used, I still can't use site in any way except scrobbling. And scrobbling without clear library is much less joyful.. and controllable. And I like having control in at least that small part of world like music. :<

I was upset about the change too, but after they said they are restoring mostly everything it's a little more hopeful but i'm only going to use the site if the functionality is back (especially the about me section).

Here we go, the non-existent tracks and recent scrobbles are back! My numbers are still incorrect though, cause the previously deleted tracks still exist. But good job so far :)

but no answers on ugly interface and layout which absolutely doesn't want to load on PC... x...x and no answers on Library thing. and on wast blank space like it's cosmos expandion..

those small errors like scrobbles missing tracks, shoutbox it's easy to make work again it's to be expected. But we are talking about our complains on new layout and good features from old version that they DIDN't say it will be back.

Numbers and album covers are just the most important for me. When those are all correct, I can continue bitching about other things being gone. Also, the deleted tracks seem to be leaving one by one.

This is what's happened to me, as well. Songs keep disappearing and coming back.

Seems to me the artists are being corrected one by one. My deleted Taylor Swift track is now gone, one by The Prodigy is gone too, but some others are still there.

Yes, I'm starting to see some subtle changes, too. My play counts for several newer tracks that had disappeared are back, and I think some of my duplicates have been removed, as I noticed the play count for one of the albums most affected was down a handful of plays. Still have a lot of duplicates hanging on, but hopefully this is a good sign!
