How long does it take to fix reported artist errors?

PRG

I reported this Aug. 4:

 

The artist listed as "Menace" is really actually 2 artists with their music mixed together. One Menace is a 1997(sic, meant 1977,)-current English punk/oi band. The other seems to be an 200?+ American Hip Hop act. 

 

 

 I'm kind of disappointed,  30 seconds of listening and a quick trip to discogs.com should be able to recognize the issue. 2 months later: nothing.  I'm kind of reticent to post other errors, there's tons. Honestly, there's so many, I want them fixed, so I can give Spotify money.  I sent this one in as a bell weather.  I'm not expecting instant action, but 2 months and nothing?

Hey! Welcome to the community 🙂

This issue stems a little deeper than just multiple artists on the same page. Spotify currently does not have a way in the clients to separate artists with the same name, meaning anytime this happens the artists get merged onto a single page. There is a discussion about it over on the Ideas Exchange here.
