This has been a bug for over a month but still not fixed. Any idea when we can change our username?

Thanks for the info, but I said that already exists, but I look and do not. July 22, 2012 at 5:17 am #907126 designsimplyStaff You cannot use that tool to change to a username that already exists. July 27, 2012 at 10:00 pm #907127 jongelberMember I accidentaly changed my username (I thought it was my display name) and would like to change it back as its similar to my blogname and I would like to keep it simple. Is it possible to change it back to my old username before I accidentally changed it? July 27, 2012 at 10:23 pm #907128 timethiefMember I’m sorry but there’s a process that has to be used to change a username so it it cannot be changed by accident. 3. Read the information presented on this page very carefully. Important:You will not be able to change your username back. The old name will be reserved and no one will have access to it. http://en.support.wordpress.com/change-your-username/ July 27, 2012 at 10:24 pm #907129 joststerMember removing self from notifications July 27, 2012 at 10:24 pm #907130 jongelberMember I misunderstood what “username” meant. I thought it was display name. Can I change it back with help from wordpress?
