en WordPress.com Forums › Support Blog name reserved Author Posts December 30, 2010 at 12:08 am #550953 dmangruMember Hi, After going a few years with the self hosted option of WordPress, I finally decided to activate a blog here on the WordPress.com side. turns out DanielMangru.WordPress.com is reserved. After going through the forum link –> https://en.forums.wordpress.com/search.php?q=reserved I must have posted somewhere sometime ago and not bothered to complete/setup a blog at the time (since i’m doing the self-hosted thing anyway) and now my name is tied up. Is there anyway to validate or identify how I logged in in order to tie up the name in the first place? Is this going to be an issue where I’ll have to wait until support gets back from hiatus? Thanks.

I was able to track down the email address, get the password reset, and the account access in order to create the blog I wanted. Now everything is fine.
