Merged

This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Shouts are now enabled but....not being delievered to our private email address as before. Is this no longer available?

I discovered yesterday I had received a long and thoughtful reply on September 27.  Also a shout on October 10 and a new follower.  Why on Earth are all notifications disabled?  It's bad enough basic functionality is gone, but now I don't even find out when my friends here (excuse me, followers) contact me?

I can't understand why the Last.fm staff took away notifications, they've taken away every single little bit of social features they used to have on the old site. I believe you still get notifications for PMs, but a lot more people use the shoutboxes- they were pretty much Last.fm's specialty.

I definitely do not get notifications for PMs.  The site as a social network is destroyed.

There's a little tick mark with the number of PMs I have, but I can only see it on the user menu.

How do they forget to implement an important part of keeping in touch with people? Pitiful.

Because my friend, I don't believe Developers get much mail sent their way. Possibly if they don't use it, therefore  perhaps no one else uses this feature. (TeeHee) Possibly at that moment of change over they just went for the basic features, now with just subscription services to be finished, The site will be stabilized; the teams can draw out  "about me area" fix the large fonts or get rid of the large red/green button to follow a user. Get the RSS feeds running again. Also going back to LFM for community support instead of using third party getsat.

Yep. I'm pretty sure Last.fm knows nothing about their own site at this point.

I Need to ramble a bit -- 1+1=3 (it does not add up right); however, this is a first – I played an album underground group called “Foul Mouth,” maybe 200 listeners, no cover art on artist page, didn’t consider loading it because of the out of focus effect (raster graphics/image compression program is off here).

Strangely enough, it loaded the artwork onto my album list ?(like old site via Bandcamp) And I have this doomsday merger scenario all figured out in my mind.

Whether its notifications, shouts, ‘about me’ whatever your special gig is, like mine is the web scrobbler, hitting the Russian sites, Y-Tubin' etc. and being able to not touch this site for a week and spend a few hours enjoying getting my page in order on a rainy Sunday. Not the case at present.

Regardless; everyone for the most part is frustrated, and the common denominator is no communication (when you do get it – often rudeness or circular), third party forums in the USA (Cali).
Good run down of who actually runs this community.

Nonetheless, some key people are working here now, and this art upload was either some good dope or it occurred. I wish someone could just give us an update on the site itself, no fluff, just some straight talk. Really I do want this site to work; my outspokenness and silliness may make it seem otherwise.

I could care less about charts, but someone does, and if you desire a collective action to work, we need to respect what other’s missed features are. If “they” shut a bona-fide forum down, we need to start another – otherwise you are playing their game of access denied. Love American Style.

I am sure what is left of the original staff isn’t overly keen on this method or 100% design overhaul, and at the same time a few mods have gotten a tad brain soaked with power. That is, in my opinion of course.

Something has to give now . . .

oh this is what loaded on it's own, artist page, and mine?
