I wonder if they realize that everyone hates their site. I bet that they just sit around at a really long office table and pet their cats like diabolical evil masterminds and discuss the order of money making, while leaving a chimpanzee to take care of the feedback for the website.
yeah well they didn't really do themselves any favors with the last site update. It looked like a desperate attempt to "modernize" their site so they could make more money. I think even less people would want to use their site now, hence the enormous backlash from their core audience.

Wait, this isn't right, lemme fix it

They've been losing money for years, the site "update" just was the worst in a string of bad decisions.
There were so many ways to monetize the site obvious to even someone with no business sense like me, yet their subscriber features catered to autists only.
The last big thing they tried? Last.fm Originals, i.e. super exclusive sessions with third-rate musicians - I'm sorry, but that's not gonna fly on a site supposedly for music enthusiasts.
The best thing out of the ordeal is some promising alternatives finally having a reason to develop. Look out for hatchet.is and ListenBrainz sometime next year.

Fucking pisses me off that you can't delete an entire artist from your scrobble history anymore. You can only delete individual scrobbles, so fucking annoying.
Then theres the completely shit profiles.
And little things like the search no longer providing drop down suggestions when you type a few letters in
So fucking shit, what a fuck up
We should be talking about Lastfm like we talk about facebook or tumblr or twitter. Everybody listens to music and the listening history is a great gimmick, how did they fuck it up.
>tfw you made your account 2 days before the JUST-ing of the site
oh jaysus, i had made disappear so many page elements that it was a struggle
i just use it because i need to autistically track things so its not that much worse for me
i used this when i made a new account after marcel followed me
nice try, CBS
last.fm has been riding the crest of some really solid groundwork for a decade
If any of these two actually listen to their users the site is gonna overtake old last.fm in a year or two. Not to mention new last.fm which loses by default.
