Not able to change blog address URL

  1. @macmanx:

    Hi. I created a blog fourtonfish.wordpress.com in the past and deleted it. Now I would like to reuse fourtonfish as a username. I was hoping this would be possible once the Change Username tool would be available again, however even with the option "No matching blog address" enabled, I still can't change my username to fourtonfish.

    Will this ever be possible?

    Thanks in advance.

    I searched for you and this is what maxmanx has said in another thread:

    Blog names are the same as usernames for the most part. Usernames can be turned into blog names, but blog names cannot be turned into usernames. http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/cant-change-username-because-i-use-same-display-name?replies=5#post-694997
