Users have requested custom usernames for years. Please, listen to us. It blows my mind that this feature does not exist. I have many collaborative playlists, I love sharing playlists, people search for my account (including myself from their accounts) to find my playlists. Having a numerical ID for my name makes those tasks and more nearly unneccessarily difficult. Please, implement this feature.
Yes, I know I can share my account number, but that is not a user-friendly solution.
I know I can start a new account, but that is even more ridiculous. I don't want to lose all the friends I've added, have everyone rediscover me and my playlists, and all of my listening history.
