Merged

This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: PLEASE FIX THE ADS ALREADY

I don't care where I post this. The site runs like ASS with all of these ads. It seems so desperate! Is this site in decline or close to dying? I hope not but really they don't try to improve anything around here. The wrong titles to songs, the unmerged tags... this site should be open like wikipedia!

I don't know what ad it is but the site just hangs and never stops loading.

Well, this is only happening bad shit on Chrome for me but I doubt they care because they are holding back on features that really need to be added but rather annoy the shit out of every member of the site with ads. All I can say is that I love to scrobble and come and see what is shown on my profile but to keep getting these fugly ads and or either a stupid popup to turn off adblocker plus is asinine. To add an actual blocker to block adblocker is going to far in my opinion.

There's really no way out of it. Using Adblock makes the site run faster, but it shows a god-awful popup. Paying a subscription seems like the right idea on paper, but nobody here like the perks that paying $3 every month offers.

Problem is there is no perks except remove of ads only. If there is something else, it is not enough to pay $3 for. Even if I was with a so called income. I would not pay that $3.

Exactly, whether you pay $3 or not the site is still a broken mess. All you're getting for $3 is the broken site just without ads.

If this was a brand new site nobody would even bother coming here. Lastfm is so lucky they're resting on their laurels and keeping visitors due to 10 years of nostalgia.

Ghostery nicely blocks the ads and no popup :)

It's bad enough that I disabled my ad blocker for this malfunctioning site, but now I still get the pop up because I have it installed on my computer! What do you want from me Last.fm? Are you trying to eliminate any stragglers that are left on this site? And 3 dollars a month for a subscription? What am I getting besides ad free? Nothing.... nothing that makes me say, "Hey! That's worth a subscription." I guess I'll just scrobble and not come to the site.....

I think you hit it on the nose there. They want us to leave, but then again, how can they make money with no one visiting? It is pretty much stupid and annoyance than anything.

I hate to say it, but maybe we should give them what they want and leave. It will make everybody's lives easier if they just shut down the site and everybody can move on. Better than being in some perpetual inbetween all the time, where the site kind of exists but doesnt really - causing both users and developers tons of stress.

Until there is another alternative as good as this, which is sad to say. I will still use it until there is another alternative and so far there is just nothing out there on the internet to go to. If we just stop coming to this site, then there will be nothing at all to share your music to other online. There is libre.fm but to me that is like using windows nt look. It looks like something from the early 90s. The problem is not the site but the maintaining is not getting done right on this site. The staff says things to make us think we are getting something but never does it. So this site will always be lacking.

Nrg brings up a good point. I only joined this site so I could track my plays from Tidal and add YouTube videos. (One hundred down, over 90,000 to go)
