    I can't find the answer to my question so who should I write to? I don't wanna take your personal space (your account) and ask you about job but forum isn't helping me. The thing is... the auto scrobbling is wrong, it keeps on correcting me and is doing it wrong and seems I'm not the only 'angry' user :) When I listen to Fryderyk Chopin it keeps changing it to Frédéric Chopin which is incorrect and annoys many people. Who can change that?

    Same here. I'm sure it's an awesome job, but how do you like working for last.fm? Has it made you look at the site as work or taken some of the joy out of scrobblin' or has it made it better than ever?

    Lots of unique artists! So I'm curious to know, are you vegan or vegetarian?

    Alex, Good Evening, I hope that you're having a great day. Change is always difficult - but we do change and learn how to adjust situations and make the best of the changes. The Unknown is similar to the Boogie Man .... all who believed in the Boogie Man - hopefully learned differently. Change will be here on Last. fm and some will go and a great number more will stay. Thank you for your time in attempting to answer questions! Enjoy your week!

    you can copy this and post it if you wish- I'll leave it up to you. I sincerely wanted to thank and encourage you- not just speak to an audience of hostile people who often don't have the foggiest idea what they are talking about. Even some of my own "friends" are being a pain in the ass on this and other issues. I'm truly sorry- please continue to do whatever you can to address this latest issue.....

    It amazes me that people forget so quickly how much WORSE the April and May "updates" were handled. YOU have answered every question directly, professionally, and patiently- despite not having the "authority" to answer some of the questions. When people unload on Last.fm- please don't take it personally, because you are doing a commendable job. The people who WERE "authorized" to handle previous Last.fm fiascos botched it from day one and watched it go directly down the tubes from there. Thaelvyn is no longer there- and I guess Studley is off in his new office laughing about not having to be in the hotseat THIS time. You and Knapster are doing what you can- and that is all I ask. Thank you. Give my regards to whoever you think deserves to receive these kudos. I'm sure there are others around there who DO care....:)

    Hi, Alex Firstly well done mate, for having the guts to get up and answer all the questions on the station changes forum. There are a lot of upset subscribers there (I know, I'm one) and it can't have been easy to post up like you did. But that leads to me to a very obvious question. As you have said on the forum a number of times - you're a developer not a spokesman. OK - then where's the person who really ought to be fielding these questions - say the head of Customer Relations? Cos this is the time he should be earning his corn! I'm very disappointed by the changes. But not surprised. But what has astounded me is the cack-handed way last.fm has handled the customer communications surrounding them. And if that's not your job could you direct me to the persons whose job it is, so we can get some answers as to what has happened and what is planned to happen in the future? Thanks and regards Nick P.S. I'll be posting a copy of this on the forum.

    "As I've said elsewhere, the best subscriber pitch we can currently make is on our subscribe page. We're aware it's not exactly compelling at the moment, and will hopefully be launching more subscriber features soon." You are good! Not exactly compelling, but good nevertheless! heehee I re-upped my subscription yesterday- for 30 days. Better get on those positive changes! :)

    hang in there- it may get ugly (er) but please don't let your folks take the bait. Many people are justifiably irate- and you unfortunately got to be the bearer of bad news. Humor, if carefully done, can be a big help- but it can also backfire. Sarcasm gets me in trouble all the time- there needs to be a sarcasm font that I can use.... :) If at all possible, keep even those on "your" side professional and reign in those who can't keep their cool- on both sides. Try not to be (and you haven't been so far at all) heavy-handed. Poor 'ol Studley got the hot seat last time around- and babs and dankine threw a lot of gasoline on the fire- without really meaning too. I misbehaved a bit myself- I swear to try to avoid that this time. Good luck. IT IS about the music... Holler at me any time I can be of help- I'd like us to survive this with as little pain and hostility as possible. I know you feel the same....:)

    it's not spam, i'm just looking for your help (because you're the leader of vegans and vegetarians group) to invite to the members of our group to join to the ''Oki'' one, i hope you know ''the spoon revolution'' :D. I've just made this group. So, if you agree with me, make me know it. It's very important if we join to divulgue our beliefs. The new group it's called Oki Great taste btw, :D

    Hiya, I'm a virginia astley fan too. From gardens..is okay but she did a fantastic album which I managed to download, "hope in a darkened heart." Much more singing and also a duet with David Sylvian! Absolutely PERFECT! Try searching for it on http://www.captaincrawl.com (music blog search) or google blog search (type exact terms). If u can't find it I'll see what I can do for you. You MUST hear it!

    o hey i wonder if u could tell me, since you seem savvy abt all this, if theres a way to track visitors of my last.fm page? or are all those trackers out there scams?

    mai 2010
  • chronicplutonic

    probably broken social scene! you? wow, you have shitloads of gigs to go to. nice..

    mai 2010
  • chronicplutonic

    about 5 rows behind, i got there late! hm... aside from the strong waves of nostalgia from empty (a bit) and combat baby ( a lot, definite favourite part) it was pretty disappointing. something was missing i cant quite place it. connection not there ya know? i didnt feel like they were as excited as they said or that this gig was that special to them. dno

    mai 2010
  • chronicplutonic

    but maybe being at the very front was diff. what did u think?

    mai 2010
  • chronicplutonic

    a letdown. do you think emily was on something? not that it matters, the show was mediocre at best, she said seemingly insincere things and the crowd was TRYING to be excited i think..the songs were too drawn out and they were 'rocking out' mind-numbingly for too long.

    mai 2010
  • chronicplutonic

    fuck yeah man! deadlines in a week but for emily? anything! see you in the front row bbzzztt

    mai 2010
  • chronicplutonic

    so how was it? what did i miss?
