accidentally went from administrator to author--can I reverse?

  1. I am starting a multi-author private blog and am the administrator, but as I was experimenting with how it would look to the "authors" I was inviting to join, by inviting myself as an author with an alternate email address, I lost my administrator status. Now I can't do any inviting or any other administrator function. How do I restore my administrator status on the blog that I just started?

    The blog I need help with is gombealum.wordpress.com.

  2. You will need Staff help and I have flagged this thread for their attention.

  3. I've fixed your role on the http://gombealum.wordpress.com/ blog.

  4. Same thing happened for me for my blog (goodsamaritansfund.wordpress.com)
    I would be very grateful if my adminstrator privilege is restored back.
    My friend whom I gave admin access to the blog, tried to give me back the admin privilege but he got 'Can't edit this user' error.

    Please help.
