Same for Dernière Volonté.  I just noticed that my scrobble count got split into Dernière Volonté and Derniere Volonte (without the accents).

Both artist pages say my number of scrobbles for the artist is 983.
Librar and Profile Chart:
- Dernière Volonté: 890 scrobbles
- Derniere Volonte: 97 scrobbles

I voted on the names before noticing this 'issue' (YES for the name with accents and NO for the name without accents)

Musicbrainz gives the name with accents.  Spotify, from which I scrobbled the 21 tracks from the Commémoration album, uses the name without accents in their software.

I'm also experiencing the same problem with eight artists (the artist count on my Last.fm profile page is 1613 vs 1621 in my library), but the only ones I've been able to figure out so far are 雅-MIYAVI- (Spotify tags the artist as Miyavi and thus some scrobbles have gone under that tag) and
::M∆DE::IN::HEIGHTS:: (tagged as Made in Heights on Spotify and now split into two tags in my library even though I've only listened to the band on Spotify). I have autocorrect on and would like for everything by the same artist to stay under one tag.

Based on my personal observations and what others have written here I wouldn't be surprised if this issue had something to do with scrobbling from Spotify. I'm really hoping that this is only a temporary problem and gets fixed quickly.

Staff is investigating the issue: https://getsatisfaction.com/lastfm/topics/weird-scrobble-amount-problem

I think it's just a LFM issue.  
Maybe something is tested so corrections/autocorrect can return on its full capacity at the next update... but it accidentally got live already.
EDIT: Or are they preparing a big mergeing operation for duplicate profiles (including wrong spellings)?

I'm experiencing this problem with Taeyeon, which used to redirect to the hangul spelling 태연, and Girls' Generation, which also used to redirect to the hangul spelling 소녀시대, but it separated/split up the plays. I hope it gets fixed!

If anyones still paying attention to this thread, I went through the artists and tagged them with the spelling I used and it fixed the issue with most tracks.

You can do it on the scrobbler, but it was only a temporary fix.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Dollar sign artist is separating.

My favorite artist Travis Scott used to have a dollar sign in his name, Travi$ Scott. 

About a day or two ago, Plays are getting separated with dollar sign and without now. So I have two of him in my library. It used to just merge into one, A few songs on his album Rodeo have the dollar sign and others don't, it's confusing and it's splitting plays. Please fix, I read someone is having the same issue with Ke$ha and Kesha, my last.fm username is Sweetersound

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Weird scrobble amount problem.

There's one artist(the only one i've noticed this problem with) that i've listened to that seems to have a scrobble amount problem. After listening to this artist yesterday, it showed on my page that i scrobbled them 55 times and i thought "ok that's probably right whatever". But then today it either shows 52 or 48(it goes back and forth). So i counted the amount of scrobbles in my recent tracks, and i actually have 63. I have it set to last 7 days and i only listened to them in the past 2 days, so it's not like enough time passed to change the amount. And when i go on the artist page it says i have 55 scrobbles but then when i go on my scrobbles it shows 52 or 48.

I just thought this was a weird problem.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled number of scrobbles differs on library count and artist/album pages.

i've recently noticed a peculiar issue with scrobble counts on my library differing from the number showed on the overall album page - which appears to have occurred a few days ago out of a sudden, as before that, the numbers were the same on all pages - and now, when i check on the album page, the overall count there is way higher than the the number on my library - be it isolatedly on the album count on my library (the all time one), or on the overall all time ranking of all albums; that particular album appears on those with many less scrobbles than on the common album page; and the artist also has a few less scrobbles on  my library than it shows on said artists page - why is that?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lost scrobbles (again).

I discovered that my scobbles of Marina & the Diamonds differ from time to time. They were about 1180 a few weeks ago, suddenly they dropped to about 1120 and slowly recovered automatically (although I didn't listen to her) and were almost back to normal. But now they dropped again, this time to 1070. What's going on here? As far as I can see it's the only artist in my top 50 where this happens.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled missing/deleted scrobbles.

Hi! So,
A lot of scrobbles disappeared from my profile. I noticed that on an specific artist (Marina & the Diamonds), which I had like almost 1k and now it's back at 700 and something.
I didn't delete any scrobbles, so it's a bug or something?
Thank you.
