Why can't I change my blog address?

  1. Hi, I want to change my blog address to Littletalks.wordpress.com. However, I am not allowed to, as the website already exists. But, when I type that address, I'm redirected to a link that says the blog has been deleted. So, why can't I use this particular blog address?

    The blog I need help with is incaseoflosspleasereturnto.wordpress.com.

  2. That's not possible because deleted blog URLs are not recycled here and you can confirm by reading:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/delete-blog/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/recycling-blog-names/

    However, you can register another blog with a similar name. http://en.support.wordpress.com/register-a-blog/

    Or you can register a domain via a domain mapping upgrade and it will not matter what the underlying .wordpress.com address is.
