    Can't ban tracks.

    Hey

    I'm using the last fm program to scrobble tracks from itunes and I can love a tune but I can't ban it. The icon for banning is greyed out and unclickable so I'm wondering what's up?

    I don't think local tracks can be banned, rakuanu. Just skip or delete the file.


    I can ban streaming tracks, but they reappear in my playlist:

    “Brazil’s cattle industry [...] is responsible for about 80 percent of all deforestation in the Amazon. In fact, the Brazilian cattle industry is the largest single source of deforestation anywhere in the world. And deforestation in turn causes one-fifth of all the greenhouse gas emissions in the world, more than all the world’s cars, trucks, trains, planes, and ships combined.” - Lindsey Allen

    Thannks for the reply c4t2007

    And that kinda sucks...Thankfully I don't have that many tracks to ban but it does seem inconvenient to have a button and not have it fully functional in what it's meant to be used for but that's cool I guess. =p

    lol, if you don't want to listen to the tracks delete them?

    kinda stupid to expect a program to mandate what you can play from your own computers hdd.

    You are playing local files. Thus is makes no sense to ban them.

    If you are playing tracks from your media player, you skip tracks on there, not on the client which is just showing what you're listening to and where you can add tags, click Love etc for your Last.fm profile. You control what you listen to on your media player. If you want to ban a track you're playing from your own collection, you can either not play it, or you can find the track in Last.fm and add your ban then, although of course it will still play if you're playing from your media player.

    If you were streaming Last.fm radios via the client, that's when you can skip and ban as this is when it helps you control what you hear. Any bans you have applied won't play.

    So the bans are working now? Even for tagged tracks?

  • Client keeps playing banned track

    Same situation as with c4t2007: The Client keeps playing a certain track, even though it appears in the list of recently banned tracks.

  • How can I help you guys to fix this?

    It still happens.

    Another program. How would that differ? The tracks were properly banned because they're listed here.

    On the track page of Even aan mijn moeder vragen i discovered that i loved it years ago for some reason. I just undid it and now it just says:
    You’ve scrobbled this track 2 times. You first scrobbled it on 21 Nov 2008.
    You’ve banned this track from radio play.

    I've only tagged that artist, not the banned track.

    Say The Magic Word i've never loved, tagged, or even played, not even the artist. It's banned from my radio but as i posted it still reappeared.

    What time scale are you looking at?

    See the forum
    http://www.last.fm/forum/21717/_/2031684/_/17751689
    where 2409 kept a log(you could do the same) -it looks like banning was successful after a couple of days.

    It looks like there might be two problems
    1 - Redirected tracks
    2 - People just not being patient enough. -even for tracks without the 'redirect' problem it can take between one day to several weeks before a ban works in my experience.

    Re: What time scale are you looking at?

    Less than half an hour. The client should check its banned list if the server is too slow.

    "Don't ever play me this again" should be implemented correctly or removed from the client.
