This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Request for a tag library

Where on earth are the tags?!!!! I have my 'seen live' list saved. I NEED IT BACK!!!! Change/ruin anything else you want, I don't care, but I must have my seen live list back!!! Please!!!!

If it's not coming back to the site, can someone just export my information so I can download it. I don't have this list saved anywhere else.

Plus, now I don't know what events I'm go to anymore!!! There was no thought put into this site what so ever. 

And how do I manage myself as an artist?!

Whatever! Don't care! Just please give me a way to get my seen live tag back! Please!!!

:(

Pretty please, I've been using this site for years because I can see my music taste growing with me, it's like foot prints. "Seen live" tag also let's me keep track and reminiscence on past concerts.

Do you know if there's a way we can export our tags to a document or maybe use an external app to see them somehow? I really need some of them now. I've got a great collection of tags (per year, genre, new discoveries, interesting stuff to listen to in the future, etc) and I REALLY NEED THEM NOW that I'm making a work about my music history.

I have no idea if this API call works correctly at the moment, but it should list your personal tags:

Anyone is free to use the Last.fm API. Here's what you need to get going:

Thanks for the link to getting an API HJ. But for me it is too tasking. The joy of the old lastfm was click this click that see a list.
If you've grown into computing phrases like "You will also need to set up a callback url " might hold no questions or fear. When I saw that and read on a bit further , glanced down all the paragraphs below... well my brain started to hurt!
Good luck to lastfm and all the people who work and volunteer, I wish you all the best.

Hans-Jürgen;
Thanks for the API call. I was trying to find one of my tags, and the content thereof, and that worked wonders! (Also interesting that it returns by track, artist, album. Handy)

Snyde.

You're welcome, and thanks for the feedback that this API call is still working.

Concerning the comfortable overview of your personal tags in your profile: it will be back, but most developer resources are still used for getting the new catalogue released, so it will take more time.

I'm still waiting for this. I feel trapped in last.fm. I know I can use the API, but as a user I'd expect to be able to use and see them from my profile, as before.

The tagfunction is damaged. I can't add tags to any artist!

I just tried it with success. Do you tag them on the artist-page?
Or do you talk about your personal tag-list? This ist disabled and will - as the staff told us - come back.

No it doesn't work for me. I tried to tag http://www.last.fm/music/Electric+Wizard  with England, stoner metal and Doom Metal. Only one or two of the tag appear, one is always missed.

I can see the tags "Stoner Metal" and "Doom Metal". I added "England" successful. Hm? Curious! Looks like a staff member should have a look on it.

When I add the tags Stoner Metal , Doom Metal and England it appears only Stoner Metal and England . Now I can no longer delete england even it is no longer in the add tags list . I've now tried with Chrome and Opera . In both the same. Do not think the problem is on my side .

I agree, the usebility of the tags is currently a vexation. Before Beta each artist page had a tag site - as far as I remember. That's the point. By the way - the same displeasure as the search function. Now you can only use
www.last.fm/music/ARTISTNAME/+tags
to see your own tags for this artist. We can only hope, the reinstallation of this function isn't number 9.000 plus x on the staff's TODO-List.

Same here. I enter some tags for the artist, click "Save tags", and get something like this:



But when I press F5 on the artist's page, I see this.



Click "Save tags" again:



F5 again:



"Save tags":



Wait, what? Nevertheless, F5:


F5 again, so as to be sure all is OK after all:



It seems that Last.fm motto is "One step forward two steps back" now.

Seems that the tagging is working again. Good job. When will it be fixed that we can use germanic umlauts in the tags again?

It is so long since I looked at tags I've rather forgotten what they achieve.
If tags are 'working' what can I actually do with them?
Say a page like http://www.last.fm/tag/blues/tracks.
Can I see what tracks I've tagged?

No. That's not possible at the moment. After the work on the catalogue the developer like to work on some social aspects of LFM (as far as I understand Jon). After that, maybe the personal tag feature will be reinstalled. Actually you can use the working part of tagging for explore some kind of music. - Better than nothing.
I guess, you should still tagging tracks, albums and artists. Probably they appear in your personal taglist as soon as it works again.

Well, that shows up that you didn't read what your users write down here.

How about all germanic umlauts like ä , ü and ö because no one works ?

For Example Motörhead . There you find the tag Motorhead.
At a href=http://www.last.fm/de/music/Böhse+Onk... Onkelz the band is alternative taged with "Boehse Onkelz"

Still not working. Will there be a chance that it will work in a year or 10? Or are you just shitting on your users?

Also I can't use letters with an accent. So I have to tag "Andalucia" instead of the correct "Andalucía". Un poco triste, ¿verdad?

One year ago, still waiting! I want my tags back, and apparently so do many other users! Is that really so hard that it takes over a year, if ever? :( C'mon, last.fm, please...

It's honestly kind of hilarious that a feature like this has taken a year plus to work on. I'd say we're still waiting, but I'm not sure how many people are even here anymore lol

True. I've used last.fm for cataloging my listened music with tags, so I'll have my own library with genre criteria, so I won't be lost when I want to reopen long forgotten artists. Now without this feature last.fm has lost its functionality for me. I've been tagging artists for years and they decided to remove it.
I'm thinking of disabling my account. It's a shame. I've been here from 2007

The new update ruined the site! The site was working just fine for me before.  I used to recommend last.fm to everyone I know and used it as my PRIMARY way of finding new music - BECAUSE of the tag function.  Now it's gross and not user friendly...  Fix it or this site will die!

Frankly, if the personal tags aren't coming back, they should just go ahead and tell us so. It's impossible that it's taking over a year to reinstate them...
I see little point in tagging songs and artists if you're unable to see what *you* have tagged in that certain tag... if that makes sense.

I didn't even want to bother mentioning this when everything went to shit, but since it has now been well over a year, I'm guessing you guys couldn't even care less. One's personal tags, was probably the most useful features on this website (or at least, back when 3rd-party apps were still supported)... but hey, don't let that stop you removing it!

Question:
I 've just tagged the Band Placebo (The band with "Marc Moulin".) with the tag "Jazz Rock". Currently the band shares the same site with the better known british Alternative-Rock band. And here is the crux of the matter:
Will the related tags migrate correctly with the artists, when artists with the same name get different sites? Or doesn't make it no sense, to tag such artists at the moment? At last it's also important for the personal taglist, which may come back one day. Tricky, I know. But maybe, I can get an answer. But who cares?

Get this done, already!  This is the one thing that made last.fm great and is the reason that last.fm is now nothing special.

Become special again.

You can not tag R&B Bands with the tag R&B because the & sign will not be detected as a letter. This is ridiculous...

Ok, after all the complains didn't work, I'll try with corruption. I will get a one year last.fm subscription if tags work again in two months. "Work again" means personal tags come back and also the multiple tag radio.

Please add your grievances to this thread: https://getsatisfaction.com/lastfm/topics/request-for-a-tag-library
The last.fm staffs explicitly stated that it monitors only threads marked as "idea" regarding requested features (including those which were implemented in the old last.fm).
