Hello, hello.

We’ve just released Sprint 177, which includes the following:

  • Redesigned masthead, that moves the logo into the player bar and gives more focus to header images
  • Recent listening trend sparklines on artist, track and album pages
  • Full quality image when expanding artwork on album and track pages
  • Allow blocked users to unfollow their blocker
  • Fix average scrobble count in libraries for the current year
  • Add pagination to artist’s top tracks pages
In the background, work continues with the catalogue, at the moment we're building some tools that will allow you give feedback once it's released.

Cheers,
Team Last.fm

Quando vai voltar a possibilidade de ver quantas vezes a faixa foi executada (semanalmente ...) na página de um artista? este foi o meu recurso favorito, e eu acredito que eu li aqui no fórum em algum lugar está dizendo que esse recurso de volta.

Can you add a menu or a list or window, where I can see music that people I follow are listening at the moment, like it was before the site was updated? Like if you think the same))

This is something I'm sorely missing. I don't see the point of following people anymore if there's no easy way to see what they're listening to...

Here is an add on that will help in the meantime,  not sure if you can only use with Mozilla Firefox   https://github.com/xxdavid/lastfm-friends-who-listen

IMPORTANT BUT NEGLECTED ISSUE
But still, since the beta was released, the capitalisation problem on song titles has never been dealt with. Albums are still being released with these issues... it seems you guys think its meaningless. It is a problem in the site and deserves your attention. One by one, you guys have been fixing your flaws. This one, though, has never even been addressed.

The catalogue work I mentioned will help us address this problem.

Please release last.fm bandlogos as an official page plugin and everyone will regard you as heroes.

The team have been discussing the possibility of widgets or modules on the profile page, and band logos would be awesome, but realistically, I think our legal team would fret over the potential copyright / trademark concerns.  Personally, I'd much rather see the community logos projects restored... we shall see.

What about BBC code for our profiles and actually deleting our deleted profiles or deleting profiles and creating new ones? not just deactivating them?

"Redesigned masthead, that moves the logo into the player bar and gives more focus to header images"

I'm still haveing only the mouth of my top artist as a header (non-tablet/smartphone user here).

I think that this feature alongside the biggest part of this update is a very minor issue. On the other hand, groups or a possibility to sort the library alphabetically is still missing. Is this still planned?

What the hell is Sprint? A replacement for Last.fm's Scrobbler that hasn't been working on my Windows 10 computer for the past month with iTunes? 

Shall I stop waiting for that wonderful feature to finally get fixed and look to Sprint as a substitute?

"In product development, a sprint is a set period of time during which specific work has to be completed and made ready for review."

Our sprints are two weeks long, we aim to release changes every two weeks.

So, my take on your response is that you're sprinting to fix the problems like mine with Scrobbling iTunes on Win 10. If true, good! If not true, please respond to my concern about Scrobbling.

Have you tried logging out of the scrobbler app and back in again?  Might also be worth reinstalling the iTunes plugin (File > Install Plugin > iTunes). If all else fails, try uninstalling the last.fm scrobbler and reinstall.

Might not work, but worth a go. I've seen this fix the issue for a few people, but not everyone.

I've not used Windows 10 for a few weeks but just gave it a go and it still looks to be working for me, so it doesn't look like it's a global issue.

Yes, I've tried that and more: uninstalling and reinstalling iTunes, uninstalling and reinstalling Scrobbler, rebooting my computer after those reinstalls, installing the iTunes plug-in after each reinstall, turning off Scrobbler and turning back on, praying to theBig Last.fm Kahuna in the Sky ...

You uninstalled iTunes? Wowzer, that's hardcore. Then I'm all out of ideas :-/

Good luck getting it sorted. Does sound like an issue at last.fm's end.

Gary B. Larson -

I don't have my machine handy with me right now, but I suspect that you have a big scrobble cache file that is preventing scrobbles.  I've successfully scrobbled from iTunes on a Windows 10 machine in the past few days.

http://www.last.fm/forum/34905/_/2238981

That link should still contain relevant information on where to find the cahce file.

Thanks, Jdawg. I did Step 2 (and Step 1 again), and it worked. Now, perhaps, I'll start following the discussion about other website improvements.

That's something I really miss too. As a temporary fix I installed an auto-refresh extension for my browser that refreshes my profile page every 2 minutes. Now when I visit it the information is fresh!  :)

Hi, I really miss one thing from old last.fm. 

In the section "about me" many of us placed "Time-based band charts". It was provided by good site "normalist", but then it died. 
http://lastimer.com/ has been working good last year, but now it is working incorectly after site changes((

Can you make an oficial feature (time-based chart in library) or, at least, bring us back possibility to post images in "about me" section?

It seems the artist redirect isn't working properly. There's no way to report when it's wrong. Is it on the agenda to fix soon?

Loving tracks from albums with artist redirect doesn't work properly either.

Can I get at least get my old 'about me'-section back? Some people say you can find it in the settings, but I can't! A lot of (for me) valuable information just vanished without any notice after this new version of last.fm.

Here is another reason not to have certain followers follow me because of this. https://getsatisfaction.com/lastfm/topics/on-blocking-users
