How can I register a username the same as my blog's address?

  1. Hello,

    I am part of a team who writes the "It Looks Like A Feminist Blog".
    Our idea is to comment feminism, feminist issues and how each of the team interprets it, the daily lives and what have made an impact with us and our views.

    ILLFB is a secondary blog of mine, with means that I already have a username.
    Unfortunately we desperately need to have a massusername, from which to post important news or things that are not someone's opinion or view, but something from all of us and we can't.

    I have tried to register just a username illfb but wordpress denied it on the logic that illfb already exists (that's us!).

    Can you help or at least provide some advice?
    I have tried to find a work around but to no avail.

    Thank you very much in advance guys and gals and... you are awesome, both for your work and dedication. ;)
    Blog url: http://illfb.wordpress.com/

  2. The username "illfb" is reserved to the owner of the blog with the same address - which in this case, is you :)

    I can create this user account for you, but I'd need a new email address for it (that is, an email address different then the one you use with your current account). I suggest you send us a private request to let us know the email address you want to use.

    From the Support Contact Form, choose the private request option (should the option present itself).

    Regardless of the issue with this user account, I would strongly recommend you avoid give multiple users the credentials for a single user account. Instead, you can let all users submit posts with their usual user account, but then have an editor change the author to the generic account before publishing. At the very least, I suggest you limit this group account to the Contributor role.

  3. OK, thank you very much. :)
