Most of my journals are currently useless after the update. Typically, when I had something to say about a track, I would create a journal entry... my journal entries remain but the connected music is missing... I no longer have any idea what I was referring to... which is super lame. I hope to find the connections return otherwise my journals will remain uselessly malformed.
Example journal entry:
Regarding the update: an update this fraught with problems seems too amateurish to come from a major internet property... (As an on & off subscriber) I have entrusted last.fm with my audio logging/navigation and have built quite a history so far. I feel that the prospect of loosing vital journal data is disheartening and has shaken my trust in this service. I have spent over $20 in subscription fees for a service that should be free (metrics/ads should cover it)... alas, I have voted with my dollars.
That said, I hope last.fm exercises better quality controls for the next major update... this last round appears quite frustrating to many users and perhaps even data destructive.
ps: please bring black back as a server-stored option not a cookie. thx.
