    Hi! I deleted my address bibliotekhelten.wordpress.com because I wanted to make it with another account… Didn’t know it wouldn’t be aviable again to anyone ina whole year!

    Could you help me with this? The user I comment with now is the one I had when I took ownership of the adress.

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

    Sorry for the bad news, but you will not be able to recover that site address. Once a site is deleted, it’s gone, both the content and the site address. This is mentioned a few times during the site deletion process. https://en.support.wordpress.com/delete-site/

    However it does seem that there’s a conflict in information between the Delete Site Support doc and the Recycling Blog Addresses Support doc. https://en.support.wordpress.com/recycling-blog-names/

    Here’s what the latter now says:

    Sites already deleted by their authors two or more years ago may become available again, if they present no username or other technical conflicts. Do you see a deleted site with an address you would like to have? You can try registering a new site with that address here. If it is available, it will be yours.

    In order to clarify, I’ve tagged this for Staff input. Please stay tuned here.

    @jagärdöden:

    When users delete a site, we warn them that the address may not be available again. Unfortunately there’s nothing we can do to recover that address.

    As JenT mentions, we are experimenting with a process of recovering *some* addresses for users, if the address meets certain conditions. You can do so simply by attempting to register the address at http://wordpress.com/start/. However there are no guarantees.

    You might consider registering a custom domain name at this time. They’re a great way to help ensure a stable presence and address. https://en.support.wordpress.com/register-domain/

    I should have thought more through it, was in too much of a hurry. I thought the warnings was all about: Think fast! Someone might steal your address because it will be available again, and then you’ll never get it back.

    At least I din’t make any content before I deleted it. Just wanted to switch the owner account in a very stupid way.

    Thanks you guys! Hopefully I can try again in a year or two…
