I have been pleading with Medium from the START to do this, to LISTEN to it’s users, and focus more energy on what works than on trying to reinvent a wheel that isn’t even broken.
Other blogging platforms have solved so many of these problems, such as you point out — what is Medium doing ignoring that?
I’ve fast lost faith in Medium for these reasons. When they can’t even let me customize my profile (which, I agree, would be worth a few bucks a month as an upgrade) or, heaven forbid, delete comments ON MY OWN POSTS, then they clearly DGAF about users like us.
I’ll be sitting here, awaiting that survey of user feedback that will never come. *sigh*
