Tagged / added artists with no scrobbles gone - FIX IT!

I've listed this as a problem and not an idea because it IS a problem.
I have (or had) about 40 artists in my library that I had either tagged as "seen live", or with something else because I was going to listen to them but hadn't had the time yet. Now all of those artists are gone, and I can't remember the names of all of them and so I have no way of finding them again.
This is completely ridiculous, I mean; I had about 830 artists in my library at that time, I don't have all of them written down somewhere - I thought the point of this site was to KEEP TRACK of stuff. Just why would you remove them for no good reason???

Please bring them back somehow. Imagine how annoyed you'd be.
(And if you refuse to do so, why the heck didn't you warn us that you were going to change the site today so that there was a possibility of writing down the names of said artists!?)

I've somehow gone from 1491 to 1475 but I'm pretty certain all my artists had at least one scrobble

Hi,

i think i have 300/400 artists scrobled without any listen, now with the old site gone i can't find them back.

Please let us use the old site to write down the missing artists ?

On the old site i had almost 1500 artists, now i have 1100. With the same amount of scrobbles more or less (sorry i didn't pay attention exactly)

Thanks for reporting.  

I've escalated this with the team, and what they've told me is that this is partly by design in that only scrobbled artists are counted on the new site (feel free to debate this decision), combined with the fact that your tags are not currently viewable in your library (yet).  Your tags page is currently being worked on, and once finished you'll be able to once again find the artists you've tagged with 0 scrobbles.

 I'm sorry for the hassle in the meantime, it will be possible to keep track of this data soon.

Update:  Artists with 0 scrobbles are now visible in your library, see here for details: https://getsatisfaction.com/lastfm/topics/where-are-the-artists-i-ve-added-to-my-library-but-not-scr...

I had more than 1000 artist added along sustainable along the time with the "add to my library" tool as you didn't advice us, please let us a chance to get back to the old site and save those pages, I am really frustrated I don't use any Icloud for instance but I trusted on your site that info would never be erased........

You removed your site's bookmarking feature because you didn't think anybody used it?

Did anybody involved in the new design even bother to check actual usage before deciding to ditch features?

"You removed your site's bookmarking feature because you didn't think anybody used it?"

No, that's not what I said.  I don't know how you got that impression.  

The ability to bookmark artists you're interested in, but haven't scrobbled yet, is an important feature and will be coming back.  More information can be found here: https://getsatisfaction.com/lastfm/topics/where-are-the-artists-i-ve-added-to-my-library-but-not-scr...

Ok. It has been A LOOOONG WHOLE since then and me too have just logged in Last.Fm after a quite good time and now ALL the artists I've adeed to the Library are GONE. And I don't remember ALL of them! I'd like to have all the artists back to the Library so that I can follow their work again. 

HOW do I fix this, for Heaven's sake?!

I don't understand, is it part of the new site to add an artist to the artist count without to scrooble any song of the said artist ?

Or is it part of the new site to only add to artist count the scrobbled tracks ?

Sorry for my approx and poor english

I have (er, had) a number of 0-listened artists, a mix of untagged and tagged (eg, "hear", "hear soon")  that were more important to me than other random artists I haven't listened to yet.

Some were even artists I do regularly listen to that don't scrobble properly from Spotify (example: any "early music" recording). Last.fm had been a more powerful tool for keeping track of these things than some excel spreadsheet I could make. Especially with the similar artists results right at hand.

I had been adding some artists to my library that I wanted to revisit later. Now i am missing about 100 artists, since they had no scrobbles. So, there is not even any way for me to see what artists I had saved anymore? If I had known, I'd have made a list before they vanished from my library. Last.fm always needed some kind of "bookmark this artist" feature (other than tags), it would have been cool if we had been able to save artists to listen later and then had a radio station for all bookmarked artists. Now even this method of just adding them to the library is gone, and apparently irretrievable. Huge disappointment.

I hadn't been scrobbling with my account but instead added everything manually since I don't listen to music in digital form at all and the recommendations always worked fine for me nonetheless. My account is basically empty now as everything I'd added manually disappeared with the site change. I can only ask you to bring that feature back. If you don't, the site will be useless for me and I will delete my account.

Yeeep music lovers we are sensitive on the other hand we used last fm as a form of a library,
Ok last.fm changed the rules from now on we can't add artist if we don't scrobble them so why don't give us a tool to rescue our entire library at least some of your users or subbies won't quit the site!

What I think without being disrespectful is that 80% of the users who are complaining here is that added artists/songs with 0 plays (Tagged or Untagged recommended by last fm, friends, journalists,etc) took an inmense effort from behalf of users and subbies. Spending value time diving inside the great Last Fm wiki format allowing us to explore music as NO other site has done was a great feat that could keep partially.

But the data accumulated along the years MUST BE RESPECTED to protect those manually made libraries!! WE CLAIM OUR RIGHT to REOBTAIN that KIDNAPPED LIBRARY

On the other side users/subscribers wouldn't be so harrased if they recover That library as if you took out this feature of adding artist/songs for the only purpose of it (adding unscrobbled artist)

I think as it is such an important matter for the "users/subbies victims" that on this point is the negotiation if not Last Fm will attain to a huge migration consecuence.

Hi,

Here's a previous topic about the problem:

https://getsatisfaction.com/lastfm/topics/tagged-artists-with-no-scrobbles-gone-fix-it?topic-reply-l...

Are planning on doing something about it ?

I had 400 artists added manually to my library. Others users had many more than me, it is very sad to see this feature disappear...

Thanks.

Regards

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled they made added artist come back to library!.

i though added artist will be gone forever so i feel really realieved man. if you look in your libraries youll see that they came back. also if you browse through album and song pages youll see theres some pages you cannot access, the latest ones, i guess because they havent implemented the option to see albums and songs without plays but im sure they will. also when i click on artists witho zero plays it doesnt show anything even in those cases where i added a particular song or album even in those tagged.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Respect the "add to my library" Button and Restore in some way our old library !!....

Give US the chance and respect us as loyal USERS as you didn't advice us, to ACCESS to the OLD LIBRARY, as a CVS file, temporary to the old site, give us a script, create a new site called old.last.fm................there are a wide range of options it's on you last.fm to make them real and take the deal.

Good find, Strato.
But it doesn't seems to show specific albums and/or tracks, only added artists.

I've entered on this website and I was expecting to see my library with 300-400 artists and scroll through the list and find some good old songs. Now, with the beta website, I have only 20 artits and no option to add others in my library. Good job :)

If you want to check for the artist you got to go to Library--) Artist (On the left) almost all of them are there by now.
It's been almost a month and the problem are the 0 scrobbles songs, they appear in the list when you go to tracks but when you go
through the pages there is a glitch and you start back from scratch again.
Please I HAVE MORE than 600 SONGS kidnapped I want you to RELEASE THEM.
Thanks

Yep what a clusterfuck this is, indeed they left it only a couple of weeks to people to figure out how to save their unplayed artist (which they were added manually after recommendations to be listened later)
Of course the 50 listed chart is a problem which screams to be resolved and don't say to put the right link to the page you want as http://www.last.fm/user/username/ibrary/artists?page=2
THE BIGGEST PROBLEM HERE IS THAT AS OPPOSED TO THE BRIEF POSSIBILITY THEY GAVE US TO SAVE THE ARTIST THEY DIDN'T DO IT WITH SONGS OR ALBUMS WHICH WERE PART OF THE PAGINATION ON THE CHARTS BUT WAS IMPOSSIBLE TO GET ACCESS TO THEM. NOW THEY ARE NOT PART OF THE PAGINATION, WHY?? THEY KEEPED THEM THERE AND NOW ALL OF A SUDDEN LFM CLEARED ALL THE POSSIBILITIES TO ACCESS TO THE UNSCROBBLED SONGS (600 IN MY CASE) AND ALBUMS?!?!

THIS IS INSANE BECAUSE MANY PEOPLE INCLUDED SUBBIES LOST THEIR RIGHTS THEY WERE RIPPED OFF, MANY OF US STILL HAD HOPE WE WILL RETRIEVE THE 0 PLAYED SONGS SEEING THEY WERE PART OF THE PAGINATION SO THE DATA WAS THERE.

WE NEED A SCRIPT TO SEE OUR ENTIRE LIBRARY INCLUDED SCROBBLED AND UNSCROBBLED SONGS TOO.
