Adding a Userneme & Custom URL
It would be nice if you could a the "username" feature.
Right now the URL to my profile is https://www.komoot.de/user/193460917970 which is rather ugly for sharing.
This should not be hard to implement, I think :)
we had this right at the beginning. The problem here is that each username has to be unique for this to work. And the more users we have, the harder it will therefore be to have a unique user name.
That is why we switched to the number system. You won’t run into problems having to try to come up with a name that has definitely not yet been used, and you can change your displayed name in your Profile as often as much as you like without running into problems here,
I do not understand the thinking here? The point is about remembering your profile address, and for it to look good when being shared... There is no way in the world I can tell someone "Hey, check out my komoot profile, yeah, it's komoot.com forwardslash user, forwardslash one nine three four six zero nine... wait, one nine three four seven zero nine... no, no, hold on.. i got this, one nine four six zero... ..............."
Unique username issue is not an issue. Every single website that has usernames has had this since the beginning of websites with usernames.
