  • I would highlight that I'm not only defending romanisation, I suggest it should not be incorrect to tag in you native script, whether that be Latin, Cyrillic or Russian. I typed that note in my page after seeing a particularly frustrating thread on this topic which suggested that those not tagging 'correctly' were somehow stupid. What I will say is no, it isn't necessary for me to say that on my page, so I will take it off.
  • Last.fm calls for correct tagging as it perceives correct tagging to be, and in ignorance of the variance within the user base. Just as I am suggesting it is particularly onerous for me to tag Thelma's name in Kanji, it may be equally onerous for my Japanese counterpart to tag AN Other in Latin. My problem is that the structure would sort of censure us both for tagging in our native scripts, when what should happen is a merging of those matching pages, so that this page and the Kanji page have the same play counter.
  • And since you seem to make it your mission to fight it out for romanisations on most romanised pages. "Don't be a K-Pop Nazi!" Really? Is that necessary?
  • The point you seem to be missing is that Last.fm calls for correct tagging. In fact, it's even stated in their [url=http://www.last.fm/help/faq?category=97#351]FAQs[/url] ("Map to the spelling in the artist's own language and character set (if applicable).")
  • While we may be in a forum like setting, I should add that personal attacks are really not necessary, it is possible to disagree with someone without such venom.
  • That is not what I have said at all. In fact, should you wish to tag English/US or other Latin script artists in your own script that is entirely up to you. My argument is that the Last.fm tagging system fails to take account of the fact that music collections exist outside of the website, it needs to be possible for people to find their music in that outside collection, and the idea that I/others are somehow destroying the website by writing someone's name in Latin script is for that reason ridiculous.
  • Should we tell all Russian and Japanese users to get off the site, then? Because I/we can't read that different script, right? Congratulations on being completely bloody ignorant. It's a cute look.
