    Maybe you should fix your goddamn tags, so a band or artist actually using the name Nintendo can function on Last.fm separate of unnecessary crap related to the video game company.

    The saga continues, huh? Just quickly checking my iTunes I have 7349 songs with the tag "Game." Of these, only ~230 have Nintendo in the artist location out of >1,000 which could potentially be tagged this way. I still feel that in some cases the company Nintendo better embodies who produces and created the music (e.g., Nintendo Sound Team music, compilations, console music, etc.). That this goes unappreciated by aggressive modding is such a joke.

    What, 4,000,000 Scrobbles? Congratulations Nintendo! The shortsighted and wayward "fix your damn tags" moderation is obviously "working" wonderfully!

    Heads up! The Russian N1NT3ND0 supporters are actively deleting any imagery associated with the Nintendo we all know and love, to force our video game scrobbles to have that guy's squinting face staring at us.

    Yes, but there still is a difference between the label Nintendo (publishing video games) and the artist Nintendo (indie rock).

    Welcome to last.fm D0R4B0N! I'm sure one of the super-helpful* wiki moderators would love to discuss tagging semantics with you. You know... the finer points of organization, like duplicating composer information in the artist field regardless they lift nary a finger in the production or performance of the actual music you're scrobbling. Feel free to contact them... or build a yacht out of dust. Either way, Godspeed D0R4B0N!

    Wtf artist pic? Get your N1ntendo shit out of here, learn to tag, for God's sake.

    I am very (not) sorry, but damn well I am not going to tag the whole 312-track SSBB OST individually, so just deal with it, Last.FM

    Ok listen up Dipshits. Quit putting up N1ntendo crap. You go to last.fm/music/N1ntendo for the music. We like the video game music, so quit putting up N1ntendo shit here.

    i appreciate that you've clarified a few things, maddieman. as much as i wish those images and wiki data could be displayed, your explanation has done a much better job of explaining why than the rude responses and actions by moderators. thank you for taking the time to address this issue. i feel content with your answers and will let this rest. i also appreciate that you've edited the wiki to be less abrasive. thanks for your help!

    ...with of course the caveat that according to site guidelines and regardless of what benefits are reaped outside of last.fm (and inside) that we should still be putting composers in the artist field.

    November 2012
  • mrmocha

    Again maddieman, thank you for your time and acumen. Well done on the wiki rewrite. Reeling in those who have overstepped their function is a step in the right direction. I look forward to the progress of the scrobbler and protocol. May I take liberty in rewriting the countless profiles that undermine the spirit of last.fm? Nintendo Entertainment System for example. The wiki history will give you an idea on what that might look like... and no it has nothing to do with a card trading company and everything to do with what people love about 8-bit Nintendo music.

    As for ID3 tags, again, I'm not being drawn into the artist/composer/performer debate. As much as we liked to, we currently don't import more data from ID3 tags due to complexity, storage, bandwidth and costing concerns. Our database architecture and catalogue simply doesn't support this, and it's not a trivial task to support it. Never say never, but we have a very small team, and redefining the scrobble protocol is not a priority for us.

    November 2012
  • Maddieman

    Yes, that's an error on our part, not a policy decision. I've been pushing the webteam to get it fixed for the last month. You can read about it here. http://www.last.fm/forum/21713/_/2105862/2

    November 2012
  • mrmocha

    also... I have auto-correct turned off and a track I just listened to Nintendo DS - Dotstream - Sonic 1 just scrobbled as Nintendo. So I would have to disagree to the statement "...no one is stopping you from tagging your mp3s as 'nintendo (ds)' and scrobbling them. No one is asking you to justify that." yet here I am.

    November 2012
  • mrmocha

    "Last.fm cares about three fields. Artist, track name and album name. If you just enter them correctly you can put your shopping list in the other fields and it will make no difference." <-this is what we get instead... huzzah.

    November 2012
  • mrmocha

    As a closing statement to Maddieman, since I appreciate your time and attention to this unfortunate moderation. Nintendo, for the people here and the console Nintendo 64/etc. for me act as a defining artist tag for the "version" of a piece. The logic being, there are no performers, the defining sound is the console. The "performance" of an 8-bit machine is different than that of a 16-bit machine and so on. Composers have their own fields in standard ID3. To duplicate that information in the Artist field is 1) dishonest, there are no humans performing these pieces 2) redundant, see composer field 3) counterproductive, I'm nearing 70,000 tracks in my library. Fragmented composer tags would be ridiculous.

    November 2012
  • mrmocha

    Yet 近藤浩治 (Koji Kondo) hasn't PERFORMED, as ARTISTS do, a single track (in my library)... how quaint.

    Nintendo has 105,568 listeners. 近藤浩治 (Koji Kondo) has 221,654 listeners.

    I agree that "Fix your tags" and "do yourself and last.fm favour" are unhelpful and rude mantras that need to be stamped out, and I'm trying to discourage moderators from using it. If you are indeed "receiving grief from other users or moderators" please by all means send me a pm and I will investigate (or use the report abuse contact form). I also agree that locking down artist pages is a heavy handed approach to moderation, but again we need to come to an agreement where people don't simply replace everything with Nintendo's entire corporate history. As far as images are concerned, I'm afraid it's not ok to start uploading pictures of mario, zelda, and pokémon. Again, Nintendo isn't a band, we're not wikipedia, fair use doesn't apply, and copyrighted images are subject to removal. I'm sorry, but that's how it is.

    November 2012
  • Maddieman

    However, it's not OK just copy and paste wikipedia's entire history of Nintendo and how they transformed themselves from a card trading business into videogames. We're a music website, not Wikipedia, and that's not useful information for the majority of Last.fm users. It's also particularly destructive if there are other artists that share the name (although that's being worked on, so shouldn't remain an issue for much longer).

    November 2012
  • Maddieman

    The composer / artist debate is always interesting, and I've discussed it many times in detail on the forums. However, as tempting as it is to get drawn into this, I think it's largely irrelevant to the actual complaints that arise from this. From our perspective, Nintendo isn't an artist and Last.fm isn't Wikipedia. If you want to tag 'Nintendo' music, as a collective group, we would prefer that you use the tag not an artist page. That being said, no one is stopping you from tagging your mp3s as 'nintendo' and scrobbling them. No one is asking you to justify that. We think you're incorrect, and will attempt to autocorrect these tracks where applicable to provide you with more relevant results; but you can turn that feature off. It's still your music and your data.

    November 2012
  • Maddieman

    mrmocha, I appreciate what you're saying; however the Nintendo logo is a registered trademark, not an artist photo. It should not be uploaded under any circumstances, as explained in our image uploading guidelines.

    November 2012
  • fiftyfourcake

    @maddieman: yeah, i agree with mrmocha. being locked out from wiki edits, being constantly told to "fix my tags," and having manipulated artist pics are all problems. i want to be able to scrobble this perfectly acceptable artist tag without having to write giant posts trying to justify it, or receiving grief from other users or moderators who don't like it. i feel like every time i listen to something tagged with "nintendo" i have to get in some silly debate over a non-issue. if this page could be unlocked, left alone, and the proper images and wiki allowed, we'd all quiet down about it.

    November 2012
  • mrmocha

    74 pages of composer combinations for one track.... "ok". One singular defining artist tag (yet having all pertinent/searchable/sortable composer information in the composer field)?... "wrong". Getting the most out of your ID3 tags has never been so obtuse.

    November 2012
  • mrmocha

    Putting composers in the artist field is hilariously incorrect (see: composer field) and a lack of being concise is a massive understatement.

    November 2012

    @Maddieman: see manipulated artist pictures and wiki lockouts.

    I noticed when ripping my Super Mario History CD into iTunes, the meta data supplied with the disc states the artist as Nintendo. So my thought is these misplaced tags are Nintendo crediting themselves as the artist, or as an organizational preference by users (so instead of looking up Koji Kondo or Kenta Nagata in their players, they need only find Nintendo and have everything there).

    November 2012
  • Maddieman

    No one is stopping you from tagging your music as Nintendo. What's the actual complaint here?

    November 2012
  • fiftyfourcake

    i could carry on for hours about this, but the point is tags like "nintendo" serve a definite purpose. and even if we ignore that purpose, is it really practical to ask 100,000 members to change their tags? over 3,000,000 scrobbles indicate "nintendo" is a universally preferred tag. if last.fm is built from the input of its users then something this big should be no exception.
