Same artist has two separate pages (and separate scrobbles)

 
  • Same artist has two separate pages (and separate scrobbles)

    I know for a long time Last.fm has incorrectly listed :Of the Wand and the Moon: as Of the Wand of the Moon (without colons) - I now noticed that there are in fact two separate pages for this same band (one with the correct name and one with the incorrect name), and my scrobbles are split between them depending on which songs I listen to. Is it possible to merge the two pages so all the scrobbles go to the right place? Thanks!

  • :Of The Wand And The Moon: is already corrected to Of The Wand Of The Moon. It may take some time for our database to catch up however.

  • Great, thanks! However, the correct band name is :Of the Wand and the Moon: with the colons! :)

  • :Of the Wand and the Moon: is correct tag according to musicbrainz and I wish that lastfm wouldn't auto-correct artist names away from how musicbrainz has them. :zoviet*france: is another example of this (auto-corrects to Zoviet France).

  • Thanks ... we have no corrected Of The Wand Of The Moon to :Of the Wand and the Moon:

  • Can this issue be fixed also with a wrong Mariah Carey tag? All of my scrobbles seem to be going to this tag
    http://www.last.fm/music/+noredirect/Mariah+Carey+Boyz+II+Men+Mariah+Carey+feat.+Boyz+II+Men and it is completely wrong. My scrobbles are split between both of these Daydream albums because of this incorrect tagging. 347 incorrect scrobbles. O__o

    Arrggg

    There is no "Of the Wand Of the Moon"!

    As far as I can tell, these are the two currently different pages for this artist:

    Of the Wand and the Moon - http://www.last.fm/music/Of+the+Wand+and+the+Moon

    :Of the Wand & the Moon: - http://www.last.fm/music/%253AOf%2Bthe%2BWand%2B%2526%2Bthe%2BMoon%253A

    (note the second one uses "&" not "and")

    Honestly I don't care which spelling is used, as long as all spellings redirect to one single page. This was my top-scrobbled artist before the two pages split up, and now my library has both of them... very messy!

    Thank you!!! :)

  • Oooops my bad. Musicbrainz has the group as :Of the Wand & the Moon: Glad to see that my plays are now not "correcting" away from this tag!

  • Nice to see it corrected and all, but will all the previous scrobbles be merged under the new name? (same problem as wisbech)

  • It is not possible to transfer the previous scrobbles.

    Facet zaprosił mnie do kina i w połowie drogi pyta mnie: "A stać Cię na bilet..."?...i tak ma być.

    I am confused. This is one artist, so it should have just one page, regardless of the various spellings of the artist name.

  • ^ Yes, I thought the pages were usually merged in cases like this.

  • this wouldn't happen if people would tag their own music correctly.

    yeah it would. define "correctly". what about for classical pieces? and how about services like spotify ballsing up a huge amount of tracks?

  • correctly, as in...not wrong, or without error. and what about classical pieces? we're not talking about track names here, we're talking about different pages for one artist. Go look up Beethoven, see how many different pages there are because people didn't tag their artist name correctly? and I can't speak for the people who are on spotify, since I don't use it.

    wrong as an absolute doesn't exist with a lot of tags though...

    classical pieces are a complete mess. composers, orchestras, different arrangements. very difficult to homogenise.

    Am not talking about the "people on spotify". Am talking about spotify itself, which has pretty fucking awful tags.

    Ugh:

    http://www.last.fm/music/%253AOf%2Bthe%2BWand%2B%2526%2Bthe%2BMoon%253A

    http://www.last.fm/music/Of+the+Wand+and+the+Moon

    http://www.last.fm/music/%3AOf+The+Wand+And+The+Moon%3A

    I mean how many pages are there?? Please just merge them under any spelling... I might recommend the first but will take any option over this mess.

    Two Cliff Brown Jr. Pages

    Hello I am Cliff Brown Jr and there are two pages on Last FM that I'd like to merge, one Cliff Brown Jr page (http://www.last.fm/music/Cliff+Brown+Jr) has one song on it "Deepression Blues" while the other Cliff brown Jr page (http://www.last.fm/music/+noredirect/Cliff+Brown+Jr.) has more songs under it, yet I can't merge or claim the first one.

    I want to include this Cliff Brown Jr under my Southern Songs Ltd label page:
    http://www.last.fm/music/Cliff+Brown+Jr
    but it won't let me and there is only one song on that page for that Cliff Brown Jr.

    Here is the second Cliff Brown Jr. Page:
    http://www.last.fm/music/+noredirect/Cliff+Brown+Jr.
    This one has more songs, and it's listed under my label page, but I need your help in getting the first one.

    Can you please help me either merge these two pages together while keeping all the music in tact, or at least tell me what I need to do, so I can claim both of MY pages to put under MY label.

    I'm about to upload a lot of new material and I want to get this straightened out before I upload anything.

    Thanks,
    Cliff Brown Jr.

    Well, it seems like this thread has been buried, but the problem has not been resolved. It's only gotten worse... there are now 3 pages rather than just 2 for the artist.

    The correct artist name is

    :Of the Wand & the Moon:

    Please merge these pages under that one:
    Of the Wand and the Moon
    :Of The Wand And The Moon:

    Thanks.

  • All alternative spellings are now corrected to:Of the Wand & the Moon: which is correct according to musicbrainz.

    Could the same be done with Joseph Haydn and Franz Joseph Haydn, please? Joseph Haydn is the correct tag according to Musicbrainz, so it should at least be made a valid tag, instead of redirecting/auto-correcting to Franz Joseph Haydn!
