I was surprised that you decided to launch the new website so prematurely. You should only launch a new product when it's done, and everything is working properly. If you still want to launch an unfinished version, at least give the users the option to stay at the old design a little longer, until things have settled down here. This way, you'd have the users feedback about the new site, and people wouldn't be raging all over you at the forums.
So here's some ideas i guess would make everyone happy:
1 - Let the user choose if he wants the old or the new design (until things are REALLY ready)
2 - LISTEN TO THE USERS FEEDBACK. There are people on this website who have been here for 10 years. And THEY'RE STILL HERE. Only reason I see is that they genuinely like the last.fm experience. Old and new users provide proper feedback and send ideas and suggestions because they really like last.fm and they want this website to improve more and more.
3 - Bring back key functionalities that existed on the old last.fm. I know the new site implementation is keeping some of those disabled for a moment, and i saw some replies on the forums mentioning that they'll come back gradually in the next weeks or months. But they were the things that differentiated last.fm from other websites. This community feeling that last.fm had, that's why i stayed here for so long. I was proud to put my last.fm profile link in my twitter bio. Every time i met a new person, when the topic "music" would start, my first question was "what's your last.fm username?". Please, bring the functionalities back ASAP.
I sincerely don't care if you want to fill last.fm with ads and squeeze every single percentage of profit that you can from the website. I just want to be able to scrobble my songs, make new friends, discover great artists and have my cute profile page, like i always did.
If CBS thinks last.fm is an outdated social newtork, that it doesn't generate profit, that it will lead you to bankruptcy, that it's useless, THEN SELL IT. I'm sure a lot of people out there would be interested in improving what was already good, create new, exciting features and work together with the last.fm community to create an amazing experience on this website.
You guys know that a wonderful work can be made if you would just listen to the community.
I know it must be hard for you to do that, but at least try to. That's all i ask.
PS: Please, merge the last.fm profiles with these forums profiles! I know maybe it's better like this, all the issues can be addressed and resolved here and more attention could be given to them, but at least merge the logins.
