Megerd two same artists

When will we be able to merge the page of 2 artists who treat themselves by name changes?

Por exemplo:

www.lastfm.com/music/Normani+Kordei now is only www.lastfm.com/music/Normani
and 
www.lastfm.com/music/Sandy+Leah now is only www.lastfm.com/music/Sandy

Will we be able to vote in the future so that the pages are merged like they used to be or will you pack one by one?

I hope one day this can be done.  Don't give up hope!

According to a recent post by Jon, the plan appears to be to bring back voting and power merges and redirects that way. I'm concerned as to what that will mean for some less popular artists and redirects. I'm hoping that, in the month or so after the system is fixed, site staff might take a more hands-on approach to handling some reports, especially when it comes to the issues with Spotify track titles and so on. The potential voting base for redirects and merges isn't as big as it once was.

Quite - the voting system is currently working brilliantly elsewhere on the site...

This is surely a must. IMO, what would be even better is if they appointed some trustworthy and regular users of Last FM (hiya!) to help with this sort of general maintenance. I'm sure a bunch of us on this forum already help maintain the site in other ways (images, wikis, general voting) and probably do similar work on related sites like MusicBrainz and Discogs - I know I do.

I want to be able to suggest merging two artist pages with slightly different stylizations.

For example:

https://www.last.fm/music/Grover+Washington,+Jr.
https://www.last.fm/music/Grover+Washington+Jr.

Same artist. Only difference is the comma.

Artists can't be merged or redirected right now, but it'll be back soon, and you'll be able to vote on cases like these, seemingly in a similar way to how it used to be. So I'd expect that to be fixed once things are back up and running!
