that was the start of the downfall. they launched a "beta" version a couple years ago that stripped the site of most of its (best) features in favor of an incomplete but slicker design. they've yet to take the site out of the supposed beta and restore most of those features. scrobbling is one of the few user features remaining (as it should be, considering it is the core feature and reason for being).
if you look where the site admin communicate, it looks like the platform is abandoned. some of those features were supposed to have returned a year or two ago. i expect one day i'll check my plays and find the site gone.
