My Question or Issue:
Are playlist folders meant to be visible when viewing the profile of a user that utilizes them?
I started sorting my playlists into folders and sub-folders recently, and the system works correctly when viewing my library in the typical way, in the app. But when I view the "Public Playlists" tab under my public profile, or use the Web Player, all playlists are listed individually as if the folder system is gone. I may have a humble 11 followers, but to them my playlists are now a jumbled mess- more difficult to sift through, instead of less as was intended. I've attached an image showing the issue on the left, and how my folders normally behave on the right.
Please let me know if this is bug, or yet to be implemented, or just how things are. Thanks for taking the time to read my post!

Hello @ModularOtter and welcome to the Spotify Community!
I don't think this is a bug and I believe the folder system is designed for the owner of the playlists in order to address the playlists cascading on the left side of the screen. I understand your concern, it looks like a mess when somebody is searching for a playlist through your profile but unfortunately this is how the design is for now. You can post about this into the idea forums and if it catches enough attention it may get added as a feature to the app in the future.
Hope this helps, take care!
