Blog address I want has been taken down, why can't I have it now?

  1. I wanted to change my blog address (to alwaysfabulous.wordpress.com) and the one I wanted says it's already taken but I went on the existing page and it says WordPress has taken the page down. If this is the case, why can't I have it?

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

  2. That's not what it says. This is what it says:

    alwaysfabulous.wordpress.com is no longer available. The authors have deleted this site.

  3. You cannot register a deleted URL. Deleted blog URLs are not recycled, regardless of who registered and deleted them and no exceptions are made.

    You can register another blog with a similar name. http://en.support.wordpress.com/register-a-blog/

    Or you can register a domain via a domain mapping upgrade and it will not matter what the underlying .wordpress.com address is.
