Object to's re-design and functionality, and want the old ones back, at least as an option? Join us and make your opinion heard!

Our protests, voiced here and on support forums, have mattered, and will continue to matter when we stick together and make our concerns and requests strongly heard.

10 June founders quit
24 March charges for radio

Find the feel of old here: |

Things we demanded and brought back: paint it black; reply tracker; neighbors; country pages (e.g.); direct inbox link; top 50 artists/songs; paste your taste; gif support (hopefully there will be more..)
Things we would like to have back: compact shoutbox on top/right; weekly chart on profile page; weekly neighbours; what neighbors are listening to (in other words, bring back the OLD SWEET DASHBOARD, or a reincarnation of sorts!); album collage on now listening (or other neater, more aesthetic options); tag clouds on artist pages; options to modify/hide/remove library/recent activity/flash player/etc; better flash player (like..the old one) and less unnecessary page redirects; better recommendation (instead of the very suspiciously mainstream-ish or generic stuff pushed to us now); forum search; old favicon and logo; color schemes that don't burn the retinas off everybody; inviting friends to; recommendations from friends' page and groups page; accurate taste-o-meter and neighbourhood...
And then there are features that even the old did not have and are much needed and/or long overdue: merge/distinguish between artists under same names (update: the new auto-correction function seems to be answering this, though not perfect); correct scrobble count; better connection speed for flash player and radio; better moderation/report abuse system;...

Why did they change it to youtube? and then they save if there are not videos then you need to upload them. Why? and there are ads? Why? Goddess of all that is good please help me. I pray for the help to use my old favorite app. Why is this website so horrible now? I want to listen to my music. I want to use combo fm and I cannot. This is very sad. Only very sad.

    Still miss the old who didn't know it missed out on a great experience, it came along and added a new/welcome/different dimension to the love of music which we didn't even know could happen and that's the simple truth. They broke it, broke it's back and it's been gone long enough to forget...only it hasn't, because we loved it.

    I have come to protest the new youtube garbage they're calling these days. What happened to RADIO instead of countless crappy videos and a million ads?

    Judging by the charts, it seems the number of people scrobbling is steadily declining...
