This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Delete an entire Artist, Album, or Track from my library

It seems like you guys REALLY dont want anyone to get rid of their unwanted scrobbles, why is that? You havent fixed the bugged, undeletable tracks for so long, and now you went and made deleting unbugged tracks twice as time consuming.

Previously, I could hit up autohotkey and have my mouse1 spam 50 clicks a second and I would hover over the X's of said track. So if I had like 30 plays on an album, that still took quite a lot of time, because it meant on avg 300 X's to go through.

Imagine the horror that you have to go through now to get rid of some album, or god forbid, a whole artist that you've scrobbled lets say 400-500 times. Please for the love of god, some of us want to keep our libraries neat and tidy, and get rid of artists we're no longer listening to.

So why cant you just add separate buttons for deleting entire artists and albums on their respective pages in one's library? It probably takes you just like a week to code something so simple, and then roll it out. Do it.

I strongly agree. There is some stuff i want to delete from a while and the option doesn't allow to delete the scrobble permanently, it just reapers shortly after i try to delete. I think this bug it's taking way too long to get restored and work properly.

Same here. I got about 20~ tracks I want to delete, its the remaining tracks for 3 different artists. About half of the tracks instantly reappear after I delete them, and the rest say "You have not listened to them during this time period" or something like that, even though the timeperiod used is "All time" lol.

Thats because they removed the X's. You need to click on the three vertical dots that appear on the tracks, and then click again on the "Remove scrobble" button, lol.

I'm just so fed up with their nonsense around these delete features, it drives me mad (I had the same reaction as you when I found out the crosses had been deleted, "omfg don't they want anyone to delete anything or what"). Maybe I'm too tidiness-obsessed but I'm seriously considering leaving last fm because of this. I listen to many compilations of old obscure traditional music with artists that didn't record anything bsides This One Track and I don't want to have them in my library just for one track, especially when their name has 45678654 possible spellings because they're greek/yiddish or because Spotify hasn't put the proper name. It's been more than two years since a growing number of users told last fm about it and they won't do anything, what's wrong with them for god's sake. What's the use of a library if you can't organise it as you want?

This new click twice is pure bullshit. Who's great idea was it?
