Get rid of duplicates

It would be very nice if we could report duplicates. The site is full of them, just look at Radiohead's page...

        On the topic of duplicates: last night during a concert by the Canadian band Stars, I entered the setlist on my phone, and noticed that the autocomplete gave me two capitalizations of one of their songs: "No One Is Lost" and "No One is Lost." Since it would have been awkward to look up which version was "correct" just then, I chose the latter at random and made a mental note to revisit it today. In the meantime, someone beat me to it and changed it to the former, which is the version that's used everywhere else.

        What I noticed next was that the "incorrect" version doesn't actually appear in the band's stats, which is great since nobody wants two versions of the same title kicking around and messing up the numbers. However, I'm inferring that it never got purged from the database after the last reference to it was removed, which is why it showed up as an option in the first place. It makes perfect sense that this wouldn't just magically happen, but would it be practical to do this extra check whenever song titles are changed? That way, once issues like this were corrected once, they wouldn't have to keep being corrected in the future, and we'd presumably end up with fewer instances of that pesky "duplicate title" problem.

        Not every band does the same boring set every nite. Some bands like to Change it up here an there. Change a song here, Chang a song there in the basic tour set list. Doing this keeps even them from being bored silly an tour heads like me from flipping them off an calling them lazy, unimaginable fucks (oops). If the band does the same set list for however many shows in a row, write set list then indicate below venue, date etc..that it's the same set as previous nite ect... thank for having this site

        Duplicates spoil statistics, that's for sure!

        How does one contact a moderator?

        Often it's not even users' fault, last.fm is full of duplicates and importing one's gigs creates a lot of them

        Absolutley. It's irritating really, given that the site does a perfectly good job of warning you when you're about to submit a duplicate, and yet people are still stupid enough to do it.

        I agree.

        In the meantime you can notify a moderator and we can delete the duplicates. Here is a list of moderators:
