Is this possible? Do I have to wait a certain amount of time for WordPress to release the domain again? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Kind regards, The blog I need help with is bhamsouthcommunitysafety.wordpress.com. December 3, 2013 at 10:12 am #1548211 raincoasterMember Oh, that’s an unfortunate situation. Yes, you’ll have to wait awhile. You may lose it altogether. Good luck. December 3, 2013 at 10:17 am #1548214 ilovesellyoakMember Thanks for your swift response! When you say, “a while”, how long are we talking?
