Merge these scrobbles, it's the same artist. She just changed her name on Spotify.

This may have been requested before, but it's REALLY bugging me. The artist "Marina and the Diamonds" recently changed her Spotify name to "Marina", and now the scrobbles are acting as though this is a completely different artist.

Can you just move all "Marina and the Diamonds" scrobbles to her new name "Marina"? This way, it would properly combine the scrobbles on my Top Artists. She's now split in two, and it's really aggravating me lol.

They should really add a vote based system to merge artists quickly.

Hi,
hold your horses, for some while !
They said already, numerous times, that for the time being they can't act on auto-correcting for cases similar to this.
When the new database, catalogue and what else they are implementing now, they will definitely re-state the auto-correcting  procedures, and this situation will be solved.

Frustrated as you are, try to understand the current state, and wait without constantly asking this ... it will be solved, but not in the very new future.

I have somewhat of a similar problem. There is an album that appears 3 times on my charts because of the different variations of the band's name. Someone most likely goofed up the band's name in the song's computer file info or whatever it's called and only realized it after scrobbling the song for some time. It's bugging me that it seems like it cannot be fixed and seeing the album 3 times on my charts really bugs me even more. *sigh*

Something similar also happened to me.
Bands such as lantlôs, mğla or mörker scrobbled as lantlos, mgla or morker, having the same artists twice in my library. When is that going to be fixed?
