[Playlists] Limit Editing Access in Collaborative Playlists

This problem has already been addressed in other ideas quite a few times, so I'll make it brief. At the moment, anyone can edit a collaborative playlist. There are numerous ways to solve this, e.g. granting the creator the right to put people on blacklists or whitelists. Another easy fix that might be a separate link for the creator to share only with persons who shoud be able to add and delete song! It would already help a lot 🙂

This just seems like such a common sense thing to me, it's baffling to me that collaborative playlists have no way to control who is able to edit them. 

 

I was actually really confused when I set my playlist to collaborative and it didn't give me any way to add a specific person to collaborate on it. It wasn't until doing a quick google search I realized it worked by just automatically granting access to my entire friend list, which is kind of appalling. 

 

They should change all playlists in the "edit" menu to just "Add Contributors". Then it would solve their issue of not allowing collaborative playlists to be public. If the playlist was public, it would still show up on the profile of the owner of the playlist, even though it has multiple contributors.

Random people add songs to the playlist i only shared with a friend because it's only possible to make a playlist public collaboratively for everyone or make it private... This is very annoying

it worries me knowing that random people can add songs to a playlist my friend and I are working on together! it should be allowed to be collaborated on privately via sharing the link with the person as if it was google docs or something, haha.
