Hey Everyone!

Today we released Sprint 180. Here's the visible stuff that made it through:

Features
  • Show playing video in-place on track pages
Bugfixes
  • Stop wiki pages redirecting on 'no redirect' artists
Sprint 181 will include the recent tracks update and event fixes that were carried over from 180. Catalogue work is moving to internal beta this week, an opt-in subscriber beta should follow soon.

Cheers,
Team Last.fm

No sure if this connected to this sprint or a previous one but it is related to tags and redirection of artists/acts. http://www.last.fm/music/Skip+&+Die  = http://www.last.fm/user/E-Clect-Eddy artist is redirected from correct name Skip&Die (without spaces in the name) to Skip & Die (with spaces in the name). My tags seem to have disappeared from this act. In the past redirections also took the tags along from one act to the redirected act.

It's either a bug or a problem (or even both). Tell me if you want another thread opened for that.

I never got a staff/mod reply, so asking again; Why are some tracks unclickable/unloveable? There doesn't seem to be any logic to what songs work or not from what I can tell. I hope it's something being worked on. I rely on my loved tracks a lot.

I've been wondering about this, because it happens with albums as well and I've even discovered recently that sometimes I can't even click on the artist in my library. Before it appeared to have something to do with it being auto-corrected, but I'm wondering if the more recent "unclickables" have to do with the catalog work?

dunno if it's related or the same at all but i've been trying to scrobble the new SBTRKT album using Spotify and for some reason even though the tracks scrobble fine i can't click on the titles on my recently played list and the album section shows the album title but doesn't seem to recognize the artist? weird. then again maybe it has something to do with effed up spotify tags? it doesn't seem to be the case but who knows?

Yeah, there's plenty of songs and artists I can't even click on.

Here's a few examples:
Bankroll Fresh — Tap That Head (prod. by Zaytoven)
ManeMane — ComeThru Ft. Fat GangJames (Prod. By GetemLouie)
Skeme — Sabotage ft. Sauce Walka (Prod. by Slade Da Monsta)
Bankroll Fresh — Screen Door (prod. by Mike Will Made It)
Lil' Flip — Neighborhood Ft. David Crayton
Playboi Carti — What We Doin'
Playboi Carti — Wit' tha Fanta (LSD II) (feat. Cultie)

Most of these, I can at least click on the artist, but not the track.

By 2020 hopefully you'll end the Beta stage at this updating pace.

Ahaha! Exactly!
If in my company, worked such developers and project manager - they long ago would have been fired. New scrum team and gogo!

Wait, you're telling me you still have subscribers? I highly doubt 10 people is an appropriate sample to carry out a beta test, but whatever :|

I'm in a dysphoric way glad to be one of the ten to test the beta beta. So i can give feedback. But there's a catch: I've already had the dubious pleasure to test the new site and gave feedback (something like: "What have you done, and where is the Last.FM Crew?" (proably like many others)) - seemingly with no effect. :-/

Exactly those. ;-)
By the way: My own problem with reading during the night: The next morning I forgot everything. Bad Luck.

Perhaps because the same reason you ask me this question. Maybe a sentimental impulse to defend, what I once loved. I think, it's a part of this confrontation, a necessity to do this, regardless of whether it is heard or not.
At the moment it does not look like, but who knows, maybe it will help in the end.

Since the latest sprint I encounter lots of artists from whom my tags have been removed / disappeared. see this thread: https://getsatisfaction.com/lastfm/topics/missing-tags-on-artists-profile-page 

either auto-corrected or re-directed artists are effected by this annoying problem. I have thousands of artists in my library and I've tagged almost all of them on their profile page and track and albumpages and to have them missing tags is seriously annoying http://www.last.fm/user/E-Clect-Eddy This could mean that 10.000's of tags might have gone missing!!

can it be confirmed or denied that this bugs are related to the latest sprint(s)?

And is there any way to fix this soon?

Just checked, all tags related to tracks of artists who's tags have gone missing, are also missing. Seems to effect all artist that are either auto-corrected or redirected in the passed weeks / months. I had not notice this before since the last sprint 180, maybe an earlier sprint is to blame.

This is a major %&^%$# 

I can't express how sad this is, possibly over 10.000 tags have or could have been lost, and that just talking about my own library alone....

http://www.last.fm/music/Kid+Creole+&+The+Coconuts/_/It%27s+A+Wonderful+Life another example of tags missing on trackpage of and artists that was either re-directed or auto-corrected. Possibly due to this spint or one earlier since this was happing earlier. Or is this the catalogue clean-up that is at fault?

Still no reaction on solving this. Getting it acknowledge is one thing getting a solution or at least a time-frame for a solution is needed, casus this is a major problem, not just for me.

There's a problem with the tags. I've tried to tag artists who have a "&" symbol in their names and it's impossible... they lose the part after the "&". Can you fix it?

just to recap: scrobbler doesn't work, download link is not displayed, and can't install because reauth fails.  Lastfm is falling apart, Fix it.

About neighbors/friends - do u plan to extend the functionality, such as analyst a particular person compared to his musical tastes and my? i mean, not only  -  Your compatibility with Addar: very high.
Both of you are listening to 22-20s, Bonobo and M83.
And  when you change the library of artists with their ugly microscopic photos? Back like second variant the old one!!! With big pictures!
According about me (right part) when appear the ability to add pictures, gif and so on, as it was before?
When add an icon of scrobbler (foobar, vox etc) - with what program scrobbling happens now? before, the icon was above the list singer / song - Last Song

Are you going to include an option to merge duplicated artists? for example like in musicbrainz.org, where the users can correct by themselves the wrong names and in a few seconds/minutes it changes. It's a little bit annoying to have 2 or 3 pages for the same artist... Thanks in advance.
