How do I change my WP adress to one that was formerly used but is now available?

  1. I want to change my blog's address, but wordpress keeps telling me that the one I've chosen is being used. It was before, but I asked the previous user (whose blog was abandoned) if he could delete it, and he kindly did.

    Is the address just temporarily unavailable? If so. How much will I have to wait until it is enabled? If it is not the case. What should I do?

    Thanks in advance!

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

    Bad move. It's gone forever now.

    They could have transferred it to you.

  3. Really? It seems unlikely that the address just...ceased existing. There must be a way to retrieve it. I knew there was an option to "set the address free", but I didn't think it was the only way to do it, and didn't think of explaining him all he had to do either.
