Wrong track name, including on Spotify

Hey all,

The track https://www.last.fm/music/Paradise+Lost/_/Faith+Divides+Us+-+Death+Units+Us
title is wrong, i.e., it's missing an 'e' in 'Unites'. It's wrong at source though, it's already misspelled in Spotify, so I'm not sure what the process is. Normally I'd expect a correction to apply? Don't see any buttons to add / suggest one though.

Best,
Emils

Hi. I'm afraid it is not yet possible to perform name corrections, since it would have to be merged with the tag with the correct name. They are working on the new database to make it possible.

As an alumnus you might still have subscriber status, so you could at least bulk edit the former scrobbles in your library now. But future scrobbles would still be wrong, and as Igor mentioned, applying a new autocorrection to the database in order to merge it with the correctly spelled track is not possible at the moment. Same is true for current wrong autocorrections which will be handled later.

In case you are scrobbling Spotify with their web player, you could use the web scrobbler browser extension which can remember edited scrobbles and apply them automatically the next time you listen to that track though.

Fwiw, I found out that my assumption of Spotify having 0 public support was wrong, they have a support form + a wiki now for reporting broken tracks, so I submitted a thing with them too.
