    I have two WordPress accounts. I made one last year with a very old email address, but I completely forgot about it. My old account had the blog name I want for a new blog I’m creating on the account I’m using now, so I deleted the old blog (with the name I currently want for this account’s new blog) and changed the old account’s username and all that.

    So, on my current account, I tried to register a new blog with that name I wanted (the deleted one from the old account so other bloggers can “use” it, even if it’s just me using it…) It says it’s already registered.

    Help?

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

    I searched for you and this is what maxmanx has said in another thread:

    Blog names are the same as usernames for the most part. Usernames can be turned into blog names, but blog names cannot be turned into usernames. https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/cant-change-username-because-i-use-same-display-name?replies=5#post-694997

    Also note this entry – no recycling blog URLs

    Alright. So even if the blog name is deleted, nobody else can use it?

    Crap.

    Thanks, timethief! (:
