Remove Recommended Artists from Recommended page?

 
  • Remove Recommended Artists from Recommended page?

    Sorry if this is redundant but I cant seem to find the answer anywhere. I have a bunch of artists on my recommended page, and Ive sampled them, and some I don't like. The problem is, they remain at the top of the list (or lists under certain genre tags) and make it difficult to scroll through to see newly recommended artists.

    Is there a way to remove them - apart from adding them to your library?

    My other question real quick, is how can I adjust the genre tags on the recommended page? example: I have female vocalists, electronica, alternative etc, I'd like to maybe remove a couple and ADD a tag such as trip-hop or shoegaze. Is this possible?

    Much thanks!

    @Question 1: check the artist url, if there's a no-redirect in them then it's a known issue.

    @Question 2: if there are enough artists recommended to you who are tagged as trip-hop or shoegaze then you can rewrite the url to http://www.last.fm/home/recs?includes=trip-hop Otherwise, no you can't get results.

  • So, just cheeking...

    question : The artist's url does not have any re-direction in it, just this for example: http://www.last.fm/music/Pere+Ubu

    then there isnt much I can do about it?

    Q2: add the genre into the url? I tried this out, works like a charm.

    Thank you!

    To the left of the "Similar Artists from Your Library"-text there should be a small button with an x in it, when clicked on the artist should disappear and show "You've dismissed a recommendation. Undo" instead.

    If this doesn't happen or the button isn't visible be sure to disable any add-ons/extensions that influence (java-)scripts or the appearance of the page, like AdBlockPlus / NoScript / FlashBlock / Stylish. OT: most of the issues with buttons or functionality not working are connected to this (bummer, I know).

    Artist with an automatic redirect that you want to remove also follow these steps but, alas, when you refresh the page, like some singer I forgot, they'll be right there waiting for you.

    I forgot to mention that you can get your (or anybody else') complete list of recommendations in an RSS-feed: http://ws.audioscrobbler.com/1.0/user/KargyraaMessiah/systemrecs.rss The old version was limited to (guesstimated) 100 artists but this was extended to 250 artists in the new version.

  • Oh God, duh. How did I miss that little x. Thank you!
