I want to reuse my old blogname but it says that it already is in use.

  1. Hello!
    I deleted spindelbenen.wordpress.com a week ago since I wanted to start again from an empty, fresh blog but now wordpress says that the name is already in use, but it isn't. Can you pls release that one so that I can start all over again?

    I have to chose cxsm2013.wordpress.com below but my question has nothing to do with that one!!!

    The blog I need help with is cxsm2013.wordpress.com.

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

    The multiple warnings that deleting a blog URL is permanent and irreversible provided throughout the deletion process say it all.
    You can't recover a deleted blog URL. http://en.support.wordpress.com/delete-site/

    Deleted blog URLs are not recycled, regardless of who registered and deleted them and no exceptions are made.

    However, the good news is that you can register another .wordpress.com blog http://en.support.wordpress.com/register-a-blog/

    Then you can register a domain via a domain mapping upgrade because it does not matter what the underlying .wordpress.com address is when you are domain mapping.
