Hello,

We've just deployed the latest version of the Last.fm website. The changes include:


Delete item from library


You can now completely remove artists, tracks, or albums from your library. You can find the option on the relevant page inside your library.





Historical reports (Subscriber-only)

Subscribers now have access to their full Last.week history going all the way back to the beginning of December 2016. Subscribe today to instantly unlock all of your old reports or see Last.HQ's example.





Remove current obsession

If you're already bored of your current obsession, you can just remove it. No more waiting for the week to end, or having to think of something new.



Cheers,
Team Last.fm

Same here.  Will finally subscribe, well worth not multi-clicking to delete each individual scrobble,

Nice Work!

Glad you added the confirmation window before deleting Scrobbles. I was worried a misclick might accidentally delete something important. Seeing my previous Last.week stats is neat, though I had already been taking full page screenshots and saving them on my PC  :)

EDIT Comment is what we need. Usually, I make mistakes in my writings; if I want to correct grammatical issues, I must delete the comment and submit it again.

Deleting artists doesn't work for me. I click the link, check the confirmation window and get a 'deleting xx scrobbles' message, but after that it just redirects me back to the same page with all scrobbles still on it.

I managed to delete one track successfully, shortly after this update was released, but have been unable to delete any other scrobbles, since.

Also, I've tried disabling my adblocker but that didn't help.

The new updates are great. Can't wait to see the ability to change my old Username, playlists, organizations, journals, including the ability to edit our criticisms with one click of a button.

Blue warning bar on top of every Last.fm page now about non-working Spotify playback, only shown to users with Spotify as their playback option:
Spotify playback on Last.fm has been temporarily disabled while we work on some improvements. Don't worry, tracks played elsewhere with Spotify will still scrobble.

I didn't try deleting artists, but removing current obsession also doesn't work. Clicking the button, I see "forbidden 403" page.

Great update! Do you intend to implement a feature where we can remove tracks with an unknown date? There's a lot of crap I listened to a decade ago that I want to remove but I can't because "unknown date."

Fantastic update - took a while to get the feature back but they say patience is a virtue!

Delete item from library

You can now completely remove artists, tracks, or albums from your library. You can find the option on the relevant page inside your library.
Just tried this out and managed to successfully remove one of the (many) bad scrobbles in my library that's been bugging me for a while.

Out of interest, will you be introducing the ability to directly remove scrobbles with "unknown date"? This latest update allows us to do this but only in an indirect way. For example, say you have a track called "Song (feat. X)" and you want to remove all instances to leave only the correct track name of "Song". Previously, you may have deleted all the scrobbles that have a date, leaving just one multi-value scrobble of "Song (feat. X)" at an "unknown date" - we can now delete this if I go to the "Song (feat. X)" page under our libraries but not directly from the scrobble line itself.

I hope I've explained that clearly and I realise it's a very minor request but I feel like the option ought to be there - i.e. a "delete scrobble" in the drop down menu like you can do for every other scrobble. By extension, an option to "delete track/album/artist" in their respective drop-down menus.

I won't be upset if it won't be added, it's more an option that I feel should be there rather than needs to be there, since you can still achieve the removal.

Due to the way the library works, Bootstrap scrobbles can potentially represent more than a single scrobble.  So you're not necessarily deleting one, but several.  From a UX perspective, that's going to be difficult to communicate clearly, and might not be what the user expects ("why did my overall scrobble count go down by 200, when I only deleted one track?").  Whereas if your intention is to delete the track entirely, there's no real misconception there.

You're right that it's something we ought to fix, but it's one of these annoying legacy problems that's going to be tricky to untangle and will require a more significant amount of effort than it should really. That makes it difficult to prioritise against other tasks (like corrections).

That makes sense and as I say, I don't expect it to be a top priority, I'm just glad we can delete them even if it's not the most direct way.

Thanks for the reply.

I'm kind of confused by the option of totally deleting the album, if the best would be the option for us to be able to edit the music and the album, since what is more in this new lastfm are albums and songs duplicated by a different letter or accent , A new form of intelligent redirection would be essential and I sincerely believe that it is the main one that should be looked at now by the team, and for more than years I have been commenting here in the forum and no one has ever answered me. With this happening every release of an album ends up having a listener than the real one, if there was only, the targeting for the normal and deluxe version of the album of any artist, the site would look better even to visualize, because those duplicate albums look like spam ....

They definitely need to auto-filter or (auto-redirect) scrobbles to albums with a "[clean]" or "[explicit]" tag in their title - this is the problem with using Amazon as a source.

Hello,

It's been probalby discussed here, but anyway, just been thinking of possibility having a choice to sort artists not only by number of scrobbles but also by listening time, because it's definitely more accurate. Remeber there was some API at old last.fm that was doing just that and charts looked completly different. Is there possibility that sth like that appears in the future? 

And like it was mentioned before, album editing would be great, having an opporutinty to marge two verions of the same album

Thanks

The new updates you made are great. But when will you fix the Various Artist page? Because every album under "Various Artists" isn't scrobbling right now. Compilation albums last.FM lists them as albums by the last artist you scrobbled from the record instead of as a various artists album, usually breaking the album art. Fix that if you can, over 130 million scrobbles Various Artists lost after BETA launch.

After almost two years, finally things are getting better! Besides the social aspects (that I have no hopes will come back ever), the only thing I'm really missing now is to sort library in alphabetical order (please do it soon).

I miss it too! I used to join many groups and I was an active player of the Obscure Music Game. But, at this point and considering such slowness in developing new updates, I have absolutely no hopes that groups and charts will be back again! So, I just enjoy what they're doing. But now I'd really like to sort my library in alphabetical order!

I wasn't around when groups existed, but I've heard so much about them from so many different people, and I really hope I'll be able to experience them someday.

Great you can delete artists etc but WHY have you taken the x from the list of tracks in the library? Now it's two clicks to delete a track? No select all as a replacement? I leave my spotify on overnight by accident and want to delete the tracks, now it takes foreverrrrrrrrrr. Please bring back the x.

Please let us be able to edit Album/Song scrobbles. I switched from spotify to apple music a few months ago and now have 2 versions of many songs/albums because both streaming services name them differently. This is something I will happily buy a subscription for.

Deleting of artists and tracks doesn't work. The same situation with personal messages. Tried with Firefox and Chrome.
Also deleting of multiple tracks can take eternity with a current system.

Was this change the reason IPOD scrobbles are no longer uploading from the desktop scrobbler? I posted a topic about this last year and have never received a reply. So , I used the old scrobbler but now that does not work either. If I want to upload my daily listening history from my iPod, I now have to create a desktop playlist and play it overnight. Some kind of help would be appreciated, not sure why this forum is the only way we can get help. I know I am not paying a lot for this service but why should I pay at all if I cannot get some kind of support?
