    I want to change my username from rsuns to randyvanvugt. I started using this account for business so I would like to user my real name. But I can’t. It says the username is unavailable. I was wondering if it is possible to change my username? I realize I probably ruined it for myself. I must have registered randyvanvugt some time ago and deleted it or something, making the username unavailable. What can I do to fix this?

    The blog I need help with is randyvanvugt.nl.

    I cannot locate a username profile for randyvanvugt http://https://en.forums.wordpress.com/profile/randyvanvugt and we cannot delete username accounts at WordPress.com. I’ll tag this thread for a Staff follow-up. Please subscribe to the thread so you are notified when they respond and please be patient while waiting.

    Thank you @timethief. I’m subscribe to this topic and will be waiting patiently.

    To be clear: I’d like to have my username changed to randyvanvugt so that I can login at WordPress.com, Gravatar.com and the Jetpack plugin using that username. I’d also like to register randyvanvugt.wordpress.com to use as my blog.

    randyvanvugt.wordpress.com is no longer available.
    The authors have deleted this site.

    Once deleted, the site address is not available to anyone, including the original owner that deleted it. That also means that the username randyvanvugt isn’t available. Sorry for no better news.

    Hi Randy,

    I’m sorry, but @justjennifer and @timethief are correct. The site was deleted so the username is no longer available.

    I’m sorry I couldn’t be of more help.
