Will there be a form for reporting wrong titles?

There are those little buttons asking if the title is correct, but I haven't seen one title that's been fixed (except those with crazy capitalization) since I started using last.fm in 2015. Are you maybe working on including a system that's similar to the one with capitalization, but focused on merging titles with other mistakes (like wrong punctuation or some misspellings, or just songs that are known by more than one title) with the correct ones?
I mean something like merging this one:
https://www.last.fm/music/Foster+the+People/_/S.H.C. (messed by spotify)
with the correct one:
https://www.last.fm/music/Foster+the+People/_/SHC
so that they aren't separate entries in a library.

also this:
https://www.last.fm/music/Coldplay/X+&+Y
and the correct one:
https://www.last.fm/music/Coldplay/X&Y
if you could, please merge this right away since the incorrect one has nearly a million scrobbles :(

We're not looking for this feedback right now, as we can't add new corrections to the site (or remove existing ones).  When the time comes, we ask for more details artist correction feedback.

It applies to all artist, album, and track corrections -- the support team and mods can't manually add new corrections or remove old ones like we could on the old site.  

This is why people are complaining about Noah Cyrus, Kesha, Cheryl etc.

>>> i guess you can correct them since there were several corrections last night.

If changes are applied, it's probably due to the automatic catalogue generation job, which updates every 3 days usually.  Afaik we can't add or remove corrections right now.

...Isn't this a vital feature for the last.fm staff though? you sure you want to rely 100% on automatic catalogue from other websites? as the OP has shown, Spotify themselves are a tagging mess. last.fm staff should have the ability to do something like that already imo

Wow, great. Adding a form to inform the staff about wrong tags and then it get's deactivated. *Slow clap*

2 years and such a simple problem still remains? How about focusing on the old issues and then starting off as news?
