Deezer has incorrect tracks names: it doesn't understand diacritic or somebody uploaded songs versions without one. It leads to incorrect scrobbling and I can't do anything to correct it :( Please return the ability to correct names manually (I suggest not 'vote & wait' option only but automatically correction in the library of user that has voted fot specific name).

Example: http://www.deezer.com/album/12864768?app_id=140685&lf=5b05eefdb628b1ff86f6950996e52c53 (see official website of the band for correct names - http://serwer1588119.home.pl/wilkipage/15-04-2016-premiera-plyty-przez-dziewczyny/)

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Incorrect artist redirect from ARCHIS to The Archies.

This one's been really bugging for months, the band ARCHIS keeps getting redirected to cartoon band The Archies - quite a different band!

Could this be fixed please? And hopefully soon introduce a feature in which users can easily make changes/request changes for this kind of error for incorrect artists/tracks/albums. One of the biggest changes Last.FM needs.

Thanks!

Correct: http://www.last.fm/music/ARCHIS

Gets redirected to: http://www.last.fm/music/The+Archies

You see in the attachment. Correct artist is "Jokke & Valentinerne". But now it scrobbles as "Jokke Valentinerne" instead, which is wrong.

Could you remove "Jokke Valentinerne" and/or redirect to "Jokke & Valentinerne"?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Merge/Redirect pages.

Hello, is it possible that some pages are merged/redirected? I don't know what's the difference between the two, but apparently I've been scrobbling it wrong:
http://www.last.fm/music/Mar%C3%ADa+Isabel (correct)
http://www.last.fm/music/Mari%CC%81a+Isabel

Also, can this track title be redirected too?
http://www.last.fm/music/Little+Mix/_/Secret+Love+Song+(Feat.+Jason+Derulo)
http://www.last.fm/music/Little+Mix/_/Secret+Love+Song (correct)

P.S. some Little Mix tracks are not capitalized correctly.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Unnecessary redirection: Moonday isn't Moondog.

When I look up the band Moonday (http://www.last.fm/music/Moonday) on Last FM I automatically get redirected to Moondog.
While according to Discogs there really are not one but even two bands called Moonday: https://www.discogs.com/search/?q=moonday&type=artist

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Merging artists with two profiles / redirecting accordingly.

Would it be possible for a mod to link the following pages to their appropriate page? Admins have fixed this in the past (such as fixing The Beatles).
The issue is with the non-breaking space character being sent through a scrobbler.

For example, this

http://www.last.fm/music/The%C2%A0Academy+Is...

should be this

http://www.last.fm/music/The+Academy+Is...

Here's all the ones I could find.. the fixes should be obvious in each case.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Wrong artist.

I am writing, because last fm scrobbles an artist Szymon (https://itunes.apple.com/au/album/tigersapp/id1020633107) as Szymon Wydra & Carpe Diem (http://www.last.fm/pl/music/Szymon+Wydra+&+Carpe+Diem) and it's not the same artist.
 It's been like that no matter if you are scrobbling from player or Spotify, Deezer etc.
Please, fix this problem!

Some of my track names are incorrectly displayed with a track number prefix as well as the mp3 bit-rate after the name. Please remove all track numerals and mp3 bit-rate descriptions. Also, many tracks do not have an artwork avatar associated with them. How can this be corrected ?  http://www.last.fm/music/David+J+Caron

I've got this artist in my library, but have not listened to any tracks by this artist yet.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Wrong artist scrobbled!.

My library page says I've scrobbled Serbian/Macedonian indie rock band Ti http://www.last.fm/music/Ti 450 times. In fact, I've never listened to them, but I've listened to american rapper T.I. a lot. I think this is really bad, so can you correct this, please?
Best regards

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Artist not redirecting.

Hi,
Could you please redirect scrobbles for 'Taemin' to 태민.
The two tags are for the same Korean artist, but one just uses his English name. Please merge/redirect them as he's just released a new album, which will further mess up the tags otherwise.
Many people have been asking for this in the shout box for a long time, but they've yet to be merged.

Please fix this issue, because I have to manually delete and then re-scrobble each play using an app in order to keep the scrobbles as the same artist.

Note: Scrobbles for the name 태민 (Taemin) already redirect to 태민.

Hi, could you please set the artist for the Hamilton (Original Broadway Cast Recording) as ONE album artist, so that it appears as ONE album in the stats, and not as one album per artist featured on it? Right now it appears as 8 different albums in my stats.

This system that LAST FM have for submitting correction requests is not very intelligently designed or convenient for users, having to post requests publicly and then to be continually notified by email of new requests by other users, that nobody is interested in and is therefore absolutely pointless and unnecessary. Why do LAST FM not simply have a support email address to which users can receive solely the reply that is relevant to their own particular request ?

Hi David,

You have been corresponding with myself for the past seven days and I have responded to all your queries by e-mail several times.

I don't understand what your motivation is to write the above on a public forum. Sad.

Your email replies were to different queries, which I had to email 11 times since 14th Sept 2015, before getting a reply. I have not yet had a reply to the request I posted above, on this request forum 5 days ago, only a reply to my opinion on the design of this system, which you were conversely very quick to respond to . My motivation is due to receiving only copies of other users requests, which are irrelevant & unnecessary to my request, as well as time-wasting to check.. Other users on this forum seem to agree with my opinion above. I have had to write the above, on a public forum, as this is the only option Last Fm seem to provide, or that I have been made aware of by Last FM , which is why I had to make the comment about it. It is the system itself that is "sad", not the users with no other option but to use it. or those willing to give feedback about it, which I thought Last FM would welcome, in order to make improvements. . If no one bothered to comment on it, then Last FM would continue to be deluded into believing that the system was a good one. I shall await your reply to my request above from 5 days ago.

David, 

I have replied to each and one of your queries several times by e-mail, including the ones in this forum. Still you keep denying there is an e-mail address to contact support, or acknowledging your queries have been answered.

I do not deny anything about email addresses. I thank you for eventually replying to my email,, where you did indeed answer some of my questions, but you then directed me yourself to this forum, in order to submit a correction request, which I did. But I have not received a reply in relation to it on this forum, regarding my tracks being corrected. I have not received any email notification of there being a response to my request above. I have only received continual emails notifying me of other user's request submissions, which I pointed out on this forum, were unnecessary, pointless and time-wasting. Please do direct me to your response on this forum where you replied to my initial request, as I have no knowledge of your reply's whereabouts, having not been notified of it.

Whenever this ends up getting re-implemented, I hope you guys actually will take the time to accept corrections more often. It was something that rarely happened on the old site.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Band name Riff.

The mainpage of the band Riff is no longer available. It redirects to the sightly different page "Riff" (with the f's as one character instead of two) and it shouldn't be this way. I hope it can be fixed

It may very well be solved in your case; I just tried to go to band Riff (with 2 f's :-) ) and I got there all right. I also scrobbled a few more songs for this band and they got to the correct band, as normal.
Okay, I scrobbled from the Romanian rock band Riff; but on the other hand, I don't think this counted for anything special.

This is a request for correction:
There is a confusion on your site between female avant-garde jazz drummer Billie Davies (http://www.last.fm/music/Billie+Davies) and pop singer Billie Davis (http://www.last.fm/music/Billie+Davis) ... we have been unable to correct this mistake, due to some user that happened to spell the name wrong ... The Billie Davies profile shows photo and songs by the pop singer Billie Davis and shows photo and music by female avant-garde Jazz drummer Billie Davies.
Please correct this as this has been going on for years... :)

I don't think they can do anything about it !
The only solution I can imagine is: try and identify the users that scrobbled wrong Billie Davis instead of Billie Davies and ask them to delete their scrobbles (and maybe re-scrobble them to the correct artist name).
Vice-versa also, if it's the case.
It's a huge task, I know, but I really don't think it's possible in any other way.

I don't say it wouldn't be possible for them to simply delete those bad scrobbles from the database, but is so against the very basics of this site that I would bet anything they will refuse 100% to do this, no matter the case could be ! Only the user that scrobbled those songs wrong is capable and allowed to remove them !

Photos okay, I think that this could be solved by the staff, but scrobblings I'm convinced will not be solved in other way than what I suggested above.

Tracks still get automatic incorrect tags and there's still nothing we can do to report and fix them. I am so frustrated!

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Track spelling corrections.. will we be able to suggest corrections?.

Some tracks need to be corrected, because of wrongly capitalized letters and whatnot. Is there a way we can fix this? There used to be a thread to suggest corrections, but I'm guessing things will work differently with the update.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled How to request a correction to a mistagged artist/song?.

Another old feature I can't see anywhere is the ability to vote for an incorrect artist/song tag. For instance a band I've listened to a lot lately is called Archis, but for some annoying reason it corrects itself to The Archies (quite a different band!). The old site at least had the option to vote for when something like that is wrong (though even that system seemed flawed). Or we had the big forum topics which eventually saw things get altered.

Anyone know if there's any likelihood of Last.fm finally having the ability to correct these kind of mistakes, and if so, on a much quicker turnaround than before?

Thanks!
