    My username for many websites is donschindler. Unfortunately, wordpress reserved that for me and now won't let me have it. Is there a way to retrieve my username so I can use if for my blog?

    I'm not quite sure what you mean when you say WordPress reserved it for you - could you explain a little bit more?

    donschindler is already a user in our system, so if that account belongs to you but you're currently locked out for some reason, just let me know and we can try to help you regain access.

    It won't let me finish it out because it thinks I just need to reset my password.

    Can you just switch the URL from donissauced.wordpress.com to donschindler.wordpress.com?

    I need my profile to switch as well from donissauced to donschindler.

    It's either that or I need to use a different blogging system. I really don't want to leave wordpress. You guys' system is the best.

  7. Can you just switch the URL from donissauced.wordpress.com to donschindler.wordpress.com?

    We first need to make sure that you're the rightful owner of donschindler in order to do that, which is what the account-recovery process is for.

    Could you please let me know what happens when you try to log in here?

    Have you lost your password? What happens when you try to reset it?

    When I go to this site, it doesn't exist. It says this.

    donschindler.wordpress.com doesn’t exist
    The address donschindler.wordpress.com cannot be registered. Sorry, that site is reserved! But you can sign up and choose another one.

    I have this site - donissauced.wordpress.com and I've use my email don.schindler at gmail to sign up so it's reserved. My username is donissauced that I would like to switch to donschindler. But this name is reserved - I'm assuming because I signed up with that email.

    Kathryn,

    Thanks for replying to this. I'm assuming that donschindler is connected to the blog my old employer set up for me. The email is [email redacted] They no longer have the blog (mediasauce.com) and I no longer have access to that email account (I'm pretty sure it doesn't exist anymore). Is there anything else I can do to prove I'm me?

    Thanks.

  14. Hi Don, I've sent you an email so we can continue this discussion in private.
