ok, since many of them forgot that scrobbles, taking back features staff told will be back, players etc. that all will be solved by time all data transfer from old to new version,.
The fact WHY we are trying to tell that this NEW VERSION IS UNUSEFUL is firstly LAYOUT.
then FRIENDS, then ARTIST RECOMMEND, then ALBUMS covers - info etc. etc etc

and so about LOOK. how  NOT GOOD CUSTOMIZED, OVERSIZED FONT AND PAGE FEATURES it LOOKS.

THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE 'ENTERING PAGE OF SOME ARTIST ON LAST.FM' ---->
so what this page contains...


then let's SCROLL DOWN AFTER THIS TAKES 3 MINUTES OF LOADING ON PC DESKTOP...----->
now we can FORTUNATELY see TRACKS at least of that artist. but sure NO MORE, for MORE YOU NEED TO SCROLL DOWN x)


ok now let's reach to ALBUMS AND SIMMILAR ARTISTS, yeah SCROLL DOWN EVEN MORE... ----->


now we need to scroll down more ONLY JUST TO SEE SHOUTS. Nothing more and nothing less.


now we don't have:
Friends who listen same artist.
Groups this artist and users belong to. 
Top Listeners
and all that organized on much better space customization, fonts and page size.

----------~----------------------*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Let's then get to the LIBRARY! main thing for most users of Last.fm enjoying and sharing and gaining new experiance in Music.

(I have old screenshot fortunately :3) So how it LOOKED BEFORE.


and be prepared - NEW INNOVATED MODERNIZED LIBRARY on Last.fm !
nickname - Blank Spaced WAiting for Aliens Library! ----->


when I get time tomorrow I'll make also of main page new version and recommend page version so we can see great new version innovated layout of blank spaced oversized kingdom.

Hahahah Svetlana, your post was so funny ....no offensive way, in fact I agree with all you write...is just the "space wating for aliens" make me laugh a lot XD
Why I didn't meet you before? I like your library <3 ... aww I feel so nostalgic right now. I remember spend hours "stalking" other users music libraries and discovering new artists ... *sigh*... old times...  D:

I met so many great people like that with great taste of music and got so many recommends of artists that I wouldn't find by myself  since I listen 'specific' music .. ehhh why always something good needs to be dirtied and break... ugh..:3

@Stevlana hahahha but you're not so far of true..ADS are aliens XDD!! I cannot see the ads or blank spaces 'cause AdBlock rules xDD! (I use opera browser btw)

I met a lot of nice people too :) and one of the good things lastfm used to have was the charts for countries, I discover a lot of new artist like Indila (french singer)...*sigh*... yeah, is sad to see like such a great site like lastfm with thousands of users ..just made *puff* and turned into a useless mainstream shit xD!

I love Asian music too!! :3 ..although I listen a bit of everything actually. Btw I recently tested using foobar player and is scrobbling :O !!! ... you just need to download the scrobbler but I suppose you have it already hehe ^^U..so is good news maybe (?) xD

Oh yes of course <3!... here's my profile http://www.last.fm/user/ScarlettSand but I dunno how to add (follow) friends in this new crappy layout xD! .. I have twitter @GumyBuny  it will be nice keep in contact with you :3 so I will follow you.  I used to have ameba but I don't know japanese x__x . And yes I have myanimelist.. my username is LazyBunny but I not login since last year I forgot my pass ahhahaha U_U
What is lj? o.o

PS: aah my avatar chibi is because I was really angry when I signed here xD

The vast majority of these blank spaces you've identified are filled with ads.

I'm using adblock too. Just saying... The white space isn't a layout or design problem, it has a function.

James Joul NO I don't see any ads. especially reffering to blank spaces between gadgets option or how is it named on english like (Bigoraphy, Top Tracks, Top Albums) there can't be added ads. I am ok for ads but the most blank space I mentioned isn't even supposed for ads to be put in.

Nor I see them for now.

I got that point. :) but I also reffered to other blank space between options and gadget.
and even with Ads it's TOO MUCH blank space. They could fit it more customizable just to include size of ads and not to merge with site's useful space..

and mfg ADS right Before Overview? mfg who will go to this page?
this already takes so much to load, and now.... to see artists info we need to avert eyes from all this ...
really awful customization.. I support ads for their income but this isn't even..
It's like my brother in high school played with layouts and customization for exam... so unprofessional.

I AM DEEPLY SORRY GUYS. I FORGOT THAT IT ISN'T SO SIMPLE TO GO TO OUR LIBRARIES. :) there are ways to get to that page I posted. so here STEPS:

no first WHAT LEFT of great LIBRARY OLD WIDGET ON MAIN PAGE, NOW in NEW version we SEE only this small grey taped LETTERS option to CLICK so we can transffer to our library.
--->

first you enter you don't know why at all?! wtf charts?! I WANTED LIBRARY!

ok now finally we are in library to see our artists when you click that star thing.



satisfied now. you can see your Music library pals. :) with all beautiful small round pictures of artists where you acctually CAN'T SEE artist.

Especially with that chart thing again. I didn't really understand it because it's too unclear without any information, just image thing (the old site had chart like this too but they give very well information).

ty. but I am also losing it. upon seeing that nothing is changed and staff actually has time answering 'Not A Problem' posts about making fun of this situation and us who  opose to this new layout, and actually never answered on our problems and on my posts.
My only hope actually is now eighter 1.  on accepting that good customization thing from user Alin here who did good job with redesigning new layout to be useful for everyone. (but I honestly don't hope proud and ignorant last.fm team will accept someone's effort to help beside their own 'innovation thing')
2. eighter to wait Hatchet new site to be launched to see if I can migrate there.... 

but I'll keep here until the next week, since I still am sorry for my last.fm and I always have hope till the last moment..
