STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
1) Log into soundcloud
2) Navigate to personal profile page
3) Click the Edit button at the top of profile
4) Click the edit symbol next to "Profile URL"
5) Change the URL to something else in alphanumeric characters. (I used only letters)
6) Press Enter, or alternatively:
7) Press "Save Changes"
8.) Observe that the edit window does not close.
EXPECTED RESULT: The URL of the profile changes and the edit window closes.
ACTUAL RESULT: The URL of the profile stays the same and the edit window remains open.
PREDICTED IMPACT: Loss of revenue for affected artists.
TEST PLATFORMS: This bug occurs on every browser I tested (IE, Edge, Chrome, Firefox) and on multiple PC desktops. I haven't tested mobile yet.
I am a Soundcloud Pro user, if that information means anything in this case. Also, I'm trying to change my URL from soundcloud.com/zevex to soundcloud.com/dreameter because that's my new name (zevex was already used by a few other people).
If a Soundcloud admin could change this URL manually for me, that would be nice (note it's "meter" as in "meters per second"). But hopefully the devs can fix the actual bug because I'm sure other people are affected. I found a similar bug reported more than a year ago. Mods, if you could please refer this bug to the devs.

The URL was blocked due to the previous owner being a fake / spam account. Try going for the URL again now and you should be fine
