Following on from these threads, that have been unceremoniously locked without comment from the mods.
Summary: Release radar recommends artists that you don't follow because they have the same name as an artist you DO follow.
This seems particularly a problem with 'collaborative' artists on a track, not the main one.
On the last thread, it was claimed the uploaders were erroneously tagging the wrong artist on the track, but if this was the case, why are these tracks not appearing on the correct artist's page? It suggests there is some way spotify knows that these tracks are not associated with the followed artist, and so this should be fixable.
@mihael what's going on?
On the first thread linked in the above 3, moderator Mihael got us all filling in a form about errors we found, he came to some conclusions, now tells us to report tracks we find based on this guide:
There are a number of problems with this:
1. The guide is outdated and wrong. The instructions are impossible to follow - tells you to right click on the track, select share, copy spotify URI - this is not an option.
2. It's not actually addressing the main issue, maybe a track gets fixed later, but still these tracks will keep coming week after week.
3. There was no real conclusion to the issue before, the moderator was largely expecting the users to fix the issue, then they just stopped responding and eventually the thread was locked.
This has been going on for several years now. Are spotify actually going to make an effort and fix this? Or are they just going to give us lip service then brush us off again?
