Can you merge these artists? Their correct tag is B.B. and The Q. Band.

I don't think any merging or auto-redirects can happen at the moment. It's all secondary to the site's catalogue being successfully and fully implemented.

It seems like this should be happening soon, according to replies Last FM team members have made around this forum, but then they've been saying these kinds of things for a little while now, so take that with a pinch of salt. I think if it gets rolled out before the end of 2018, we'll be lucky.

Starting off with a positive: I love your API and think your app is brilliant and awesome.
Having said that, how can the catalogue be successfully implemented if an artist has, for example, sixteen separate pages or profiles like the band below? I know I can't successfully include this band in my app that uses Last.fm stats because there's no point.

Hi, jotasprout,
it's not clear what's your point :-)
That there are a lot of users that are sloppy with their scrobbles ? (to put it politely)
yes, that's correct.

If you would be in charge with auto-corrects in general, what would you take to be the correct name of this band ? :-)

I tweeted them this pic last week to ask (mentioning that even on their own materials the name is inconsistent) and they said, "Gold Frankincense & Myrrh."
