Wrong artists merged

Sorry, I know there is a thread with a link where we can report incorrectly merged artists: https://getsatisfaction.com/lastfm/topics/incorrect-artist-re-directions

However, it has been ages and still no updates on the artists I've submitted. For example British synthpop artist: https://www.last.fm/music/+noredirect/Cicero

Another example is British pop duo: https://www.last.fm/music/+noredirect/Fresh

Just one of many examples. Do you guys check this at all? I guess you're busy with other stuff, but this kind of messes up my charts big time.

Thanks.

I've personally submitted a few wrong merged artists before but none of them have been changed. Seems like this isn't being viewed as much of an issue.

I guess you're right. Sad though. Seems like there are so many things wrong with the website that no one is fixing...

Maybe they're waiting for the new library data to change all these bands? But then we should wait till December to know if I'm true.

Yes, maybe. So it's been announced that the new library is coming in December? I've missed this announcement. Glad it's finally happening after all this wait.

It was Jon's last statement, due to some problems, as far as I remember, so.. I hope everything will work out well to that date.

We're unable to add, change or remove redirections at present. We also aren't able to make exceptions for special cases, so unfortunately chasing it up with additional threads will not make this change happen any quicker. Please see this FAQ: https://getsatisfaction.com/lastfm/topics/how-do-i-report-an-incorrect-artist-name-on-last-fm
