Reposted here to get feedbacks and 'official' insights - previously posted as a reply to a posting over at: ([email redacted])
Regarding the wordpress forum and getting an official feedback/help, I did post there before on two occasions I think and never did I get a reply or the issue just didn't have a solution. The same issues we have been talking about in the maillist I have sort of brought up, such as:
1 - WordPress Database update so that misspelled registered titles/usernames may be reused/re-registered (or reapplied for) after deletion or after expiration of non-verified and/or stagnant account. I often wonder about this and why can't wordpress.com do something about the DB, afterall they are trying to better their product - hence running it on their own server-host should be their best model/showcase for said blog implementation, right?
2 - Unverified accounts should be recycled.
3 - Dashboard and CP issues, often times we see a disparity of what may be accessed or changed, Kubrick theme now seems unchangeable (the colors at least!).
4 - Some updates and/or changes made via CP - 'sometimes' doesn't show up even after systems are refreshed, hence changes made are just discarded.

The wp.com folk have gone live with support forums for WordPress.com members:
It's intended for those with a wordpress.com account, but I believe you can still register and post on the forums without one. So visit there and seek official help to your heart's content.
Keep in mind wordpressdotcom is still *here* and will remain for user (and non-user, certainly) enquiries and help of any kind, as long as there's a need for it. So in summary:
--> Official support for WordPress.com members.
--> Unofficial, user-to-user help and discussion.
