it would be super handy to have our usernames as part of our profile URL rather than that string of random numbers.
so instead of sendsomething.net/user/fh84r0349bfkoeriuf3049 (or whatever gobbledygook)
my profile URL would be sendsomething.net/user/alien_sunset
that would make it a lot easier to remember and to be able to send to friends.
There has been quite a lot of internal discussion about this 😁
There are some challenges to resolve (for instance, since usernames can be changed, we don't want old links to be broken, or worse, going to a new "squatter" account).
Those challenges are the same for having @username "mentions" in posts, which I'd like to implement first - so the resolution of those will affect how we approach username URL's.
Agree with @alien_sunset. I think this would be a useful feature.
