[Social] Add Display Name Option for User Account

I understand that Spotify won't allow you to change the username as it is used in internal stuffs of Spotify, but how about adding a Display Name field to user's account settings that by default is the same as username and it's not used for anything else but to search the user and display it's name. That way, the user users can change it as they like ?

Hey folks.

 

Thanks for coming to the Community, and adding your vote to this idea!
We're setting this idea to 'Not Right Now', as this isn't something we have any immediate plans to implement. 

 

If we do have any new info to share, rest assured we'll check back in here with a new status.
Thanks .

IF YOU'RE NOT GOING TO LET US CHANGE OUR USERNAME AT LEAST GIVE US A DISPLAY NAME.

That would be a great feature :)

THANK GOD finally found an open one. If I can't use something to stay anonymous then I won't be using Spotify for any sort of sharing like I'd hoped with streaming. Either allow us to have a playlist created by 'anonymous', or an option to use a username instead of our actual names. Or there are probably better ideas, idk, just something.

Please do this!  All the solutions to change user name are out dated and don't work.  Any prefered name registered when making a new account are ignored and who wants to be on Facebook?

Down voting the "not right now". Very lame. What on Earth is the reason
for this?

"as this isn't something we have any immediate plans to implement."

Most annoying and incomprehensible answer that could have ever been possible here. Thousands of your paying customers want that, but you are sure you really "don't have any immediate plans"!? REALLY??? (Hear my facepalm!)

"rest assured"
Now THIS makes me laughing my AO!
The only thing here you REALLY can be assured is that spotify will continue ignoring its PAYING USERS WISHES.

 

"thanks"

Yeah, thanks for NOTHING!



Per, so very sorry, not personally meant, but you s***! Not for being who you are, but for delivering this message to the place where this eagerly desired idea of a display name was born. Congratulations for being the most hated person in this community now - well done, Per! (dare implementing dislikes if you doubt)


Right now I really do give up! The futility of this community freaks me out... brilliant ideas are rejected with NO REASON GIVEN! What a waste of time. I gonna spend my energy in something more usefull now. Observing fresh paint during drying would be a far more fulfilling mission than being part of this sad story here.

Don't get me wrong: Spotify will stay my music buddy... but the team behind spotify just died with Per's message.

RIP               ...not!

Are you f*king kidding me?!? This has been posted time and time and time again and you say "Not right now"? Shove it up your **bleep**, maybe LISTEN TO YOUR PAYING CUSTOMERS.

For those of you who don't wanna give up... maybe you should concentrate on the big brother of this topic. More than 20.000 votes there already ;)  (But don't be disappointed when noticing that it's the same strategy of ignorance there)
