Is it possible for the last.fm moderators/adminisatrators to merge two artist tags into one? In my last.fm I have two artist tags for the same artist scrobbled ("TWICE (트와이스)" and "트와이스"). "트와이스" is the correct tag and therefore would it be possible for my scrobbles under the tag: "TWICE (트와이스)" to be altered to "트와이스"?

Not at the moment, but we'll be looking to address these later in the year.  For now, please go to TWICE (트와이스) artist page, and where it says "Is this correct?" on the right hand side, click "No".  Then go to the correct artist page, and do the same, but click "yes".

The problem with the voting system is that we have no idea about the threshold because I bet these things are automatic rather than reviewed by human eyes.

As such, many of our votes are likely a waste of time unless someone at Last FM has a queue of artists, tracks and albums that they will steadily work their way through.

This stuff needs to be fixed ASAP. I might have to move somewhere else because of this problem. Incredibly annoying and completely defeats the purpose of having LastFM.
