Reserved blog domain piontek.wordpress.com

  1. Hello,

    how come I can't register the domain piontek.wordpress.com when logged in? It keeps telling me that this blog's already reserved?
    Which would be my last name btw.

    Thank you very much in advance!

  2. When a username account is created and a blog is not created under the matching wordpress.com subdomain matching name, the matching wordpress.com subdomain name is "reserved" for the future registration of the applicable party who has that account. Also note that our email addresses we register accounts with are the unique identifier.

    If you have logged in under the "piontek" username and have experienced this "reserved" message then you have to contact Staff in order to register the matching blog. > http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/

  3. According to WP records, the username "piontek" was taken three years ago.

  4. @thesacredpath:
    What exactly are you trying to tell me, if anything? ;-) Is there an expiry date on accounts/usernames?

    BTW, I "accidently" deleted my blog goatimes.wordpress.com. Any way to reactivate this?

    There is no expiry date on user accounts. The unique identifier is the email address it was registered under and Volunteers do not have access to such information - only Staff do.

    Re deleting the blog too bad, so sad but you got 3 warnings in order to confirm deletion, including an email with a confirmation link in it you had to click to achieve deleting the blog. When a blog is deleted here it's gone forever and the URL cannot be recycled.

  7. What I was saying is just what I said. That username was taken 3 years ago by someone - apparently not you. As timethief says, no expiration on usernames or accounts.
