Use old domain name

  1. Hi,
    I would like to use an old domain name I used to have for my old blog that I've now deleted. It was owned and created by me, so is this possible? I believe I used the same account as this one.. I can't find a way to contact WordPress staff directly.

    Thanks!

  2. No, this is not possible. That is why there are three warnings and an email confirmation.

  3. But it says here otherwise: http://en.support.wordpress.com/recycling-blog-names/

    If you find that an active blog address is registered by another user, you may be able to obtain it for your use if the owner of the blog agrees to transfer it to you. You may contact the blog owner – via a comment on their site or through a contact form, if available – to ask for their consent. If you do not get permission, or do not hear back from the blog owner, we cannot transfer the blog address to you.

    The last sentence

    If you do not get permission, or do not hear back from the blog owner, we cannot transfer the blog address to you.
    seems to imply that if I DO get permission, they can transfer blog addresses. Since I was the previous owner, can't I "transfer" permission?
