    How to improve the new layout (screenshot included)

    What about my idea to improve the current last.fm layout? Do you like it?



    (click on picture)

    Main changes:
    - listeners and scrobbles moved under Artist Name
    - Events moved under Play Radio block
    - Tags without formating
    - smaller Top Tracks (like the one in users' profiles)
    - Friends who listen to x Artist moved on the right side of Top Tracks (the number in brackets is clickable)
    - Listening Trends moved under Friends who listen to x Artist
    - smaller covers for albums (6 instead of 4)
    - white background for shoutbox.

    New version

    Changes: bold text for total listeners & scrobbles, smaller pictures for Similar Artists (7 artists instead of 6). The top menu (Tracks, Albums etc) could be bolded as well.

    Another version

    Changes: removed that Listening Trend, bolded top menu. Doesn't look much better now?

    Final version

    By simply adding two more small pictures, the main picture become a 300x300 pixels square.



    That looks like a much better last.fm design.

  • How are you still using Windows XP? lol

    I don't see that as much of an improvement, and it'll never happen because LFM aren't going to get rid of the listening trend info they just produced. Squashing it down like that IMO is ridiculous. I don't have a problem with it being on the main page because it's key data, I just wish It would have more prominence i.e. be further up the page than fucking Events.

    I like where you move the events to, but do we really need 7 'Top Albums'?

    Working to become a more pleasant Citizen 2.0 : )

    My final version

    Main changes between my version and current version:
    - total listeners and total scrobbles moved under Artist Name
    - bold top menu
    - 2 more small blocks of pictures. Now the main picture is a square.
    - Tags without formating
    - Events moved near Shoutbox
    - smaller Top Tracks (like the one in users' profiles)
    - Top Albums moved on the right side of Top Tracks (the logic place)
    - Friends who listen to x Artist moved on top near Play Radio block
    - smaller Similar Artists pictures (7 artists instead of 6)
    - erased Listening Trends (useless feature)
    - smaller covers for albums
    - white background for shoutbox.




    How are you still using Windows XP? lol
    It's reliable and I know to use it very well. Plus my computer is quite old.

    See the latest changes on layout.

    Hi, you've posted these in the main feedback thread which already has the attention of the team working on this. Therefore, unfortunately, it's duplication. http://www.last.fm/forum/21717/_/2067262/39#f18416104

    (.... obligatory Bring Back Listening Trends) ;)
