I don’t know if people still use Last.fm. I think they do. At least, that’s what Last.fm’s statistics claim. Anyway, if you’re an artist or label and you’ve been trying to upload new tracks you’ve probably found recently that their import engine has been sucking lately (i.e. completely fubar’d). Uploaded tracks won’t appear, or if they do the actual MP3 file is missing (“We don’t have a copy of this track, why don’t you upload it” – yeah, I did – 5 times). Frequently, after uploading (which depending on your upstream bandwidth can take a while) you get kicked back to the upload page.
Apparently, it’s a known problem and they’re trying to fix it, although their forums are somewhat unhelpful. I’ve yet to see anything actually completely fixed, though.
