Hello. I'm sure there are plenty of these topics, but I am also one who feels strongly about this change, so I'm going to contribute. The url "soundcloud.com/novus" is taken and it hasn't been active for 4 years. When Soundcloud actually let you submit a form, my duo group was able to get "soundcloud.com/freeroam" because the account was inactive for 3 years. I would love to be able to have that URL since unlike that user, I am active, paying, and committed to nurturing that name to it's fullest potential.
Thanks for the help!

Hi there Novus,

Thanks for reaching out. I'm afraid the policy around URL takeovers has changed since you had your band's URL changed with the help from our support team. If the current owner of the URL does not respond after you've reached out, there is nothing we can do to free up the URL for you 😕

All the best

Lame reply - inactive accounts should be cleared.
