Wordpress Blog Address

  1. I want a wordpress username but it has already been taken. It seems as they have not updated since or have been active since 2005. Is it possible for these usernames to be available?

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

  2. No it is not possible to acquire a username ever because username accounts are not deleted to prevent impersonation.

    Also note there is no expiration date on blogs unused or otherwise. If you can make contact on your own with the owner of an unused blog then there is a means of a consenting blog owner to transfer the blog to another username account. http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/#transferring-your-blog-to-another-user-or-account

    In the case that there is no contact information Staff will not breach the privacy policy and provide you with an email address.

    if you are not successful, 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.

    Lastly, note that deleted blog URLs are not recycled here and you can confirm by reading:
