I have an issue with my new Spotify account and I read several threads regarding this issue but none of them seemed to help.
So, I got random letters and numbers as my new username and read a thread about changing username on this website, so I did. I changed it and checked out my profile on Spotify app but it didn't seem to be changed. I checked it on website instead and the result was same. It seemed to be changed on this community website, which was weird for me.
This is quite confusing and I have several questions, for example...
-Why are we no longer able to pick our own usernames like we used to (not community-side only)?
-I have a very old Spotify account and its username got replaced with several random numbers. Why did you Spotify folks change it?
-How do I get my old username back (if it's possible, that is)?
-Is changing the username on this website community-side only or is it global (e.g. on Spotfiy app, sharing playlists, displaying username on other networks, etc.)?
-Do you lots have any plans to solve this issue?
-Was this thing intended?
Sorry for putting up so many questions but I read all articles related to this topic and they seemed to lack informations and some even contained incorrect infos, so I was hoping someone would be willing to spend their time to answer my questions or at least some of my questions.
By the way, please do not advise me to connect my Spotify account with Facebook. I don't plan on doing this.
Thanks in advance and I wish you lots a nice weekend!
