Special Characters in Band Names

 
  • Special Characters in Band Names

    Hi there,

    I was sure this must be a known problem, but the official thread says "No issues currently", and the forum search did not help me, either.

    So here it is: My artist's name is
    Käpt'n SEMA
    and apparantly neither artist search nor scrobbling works correctly.
    The artist appears on my library, which links to
    http://www.last.fm/music/K%C3%A4pt%27n+SEMA
    but on the artist's page it says
    0 plays (0 listeners)
    30 plays in your library

    Also (and more importantly), it is impossible to find Käpt'n SEMA in the artist search. Even if I search only for "sema", Käpt'n SEMA is not among the listed artists.

    Thanks for any help on this,
    sema

    That would have been a temporary glitch. Now it says 43 plays (1 listener) . You need at least 5 listeners or so before you appear in search.

  • Thanks for the help!
    (Actually, I just tested it again, and it seems the search function just needed some time also - even though there's still just 2 listeners. I guess the 5 listeners rule only applies if no songs are uploaded by a the artist?)
