I think the guys at last.fm have gone on holiday.

Completely ruined the website. This site is not even beta, worse.
Nothing has changed since april, despite the negative feedback.

Yeah it doesn't seem like we'll get any features back any time soon. I need to delete some scrobbles.

Yeah I'm still waiting to delete some things as well. Also would be nice to have every song scrobble  and not just 25%.

Super slow... I want to delete my repeated scrobbles. Why does it take too much time? It will take about a year to bring old features back if they are like this.

Yet the staff had enough time on their hands to delete thread(s) on this forum :))) Pathetic

Perhaps the developers aren't the same people as the forum moderators? Just a thought.

Seriously...I actually like a lot of the new site, but I am getting very annoyed at not being able to change my avatar and not being able to delete scrobbles...

I hate the site since the change. I only come back out of residual feelings... and the more they claim or note "progress," the more I despise it: They clearly don't intend to restore the many subtle things that made this a community. And to the extent they will restore some, it is a low priority that might well never happen. I've seen this before in other big sites that were taken over, for example a non-profit going to a for-profit, and the site never recovers and the promised fixes, return of features, never happens.

The attitude that went into the beta and it's launch proves they don't have the right "feel" for keeping the best of what this site had to offer. I hate the site now, because they have killed what is best. If I had stumbled upon it in its current form, it wouldn't be much more than the perhaps dozen other music related sites I have created accounts in and never visit. I sometimes look at and purchase from Bandcamp, and I guess that is all that I have left.... maybe soundcloud. This change even sours me on Spotify, as my interest in expanding my musical playing field (already very broad)  has waned......All because  lastfm has been killed.

My scrobbles just got fixed! I dropped from 75k to 45k, my duplicates must be gone!
EDIT: I TAKE IT BACK, THEY JUST WENT BACK TO 75K, GODDAMNIT
EDIT 2: Okay now they're constantly switching numbers, what is happening.

Mine too, I have 281k plays. Or maybe 274k? No, 281k. Sure. Wait! 274k, exactly. Or not. 281k.
It's jumping ±7000 scrobbles every few seconds as I refresh the page. I've noticed these fluctuations about 5 or 6 days ago for the first time. It could be strange attitude, but this is last.fm baby. Get used to it. It's a new feature I guess.

I'm afraid they also removed a lot of relevant scrobbles. I had about 6000 ghost plays, tonight my counter decreased by 7000 plays

Last time I checked, the markets took a nosedive so don't assume they're going to be working 24 hours a day on this.
