    Why on earth would a username be locked after switching to another one by mistake.

    Any solution on getting my username back ?

    Switched from mgartenhaus, to by mistake…

    The blog I need help with is



    I’m sorry but there’s the relevant support doc entry:

    Once you change your username you will not be able to change it back and the old name will not be available for you or anyone to use. If you just want to show your name differently please only change your Display Name.


    Yes, was referring to this ”rule”..

    Looking for a solution here !!!



    There is no solution other than acceptance of the reality that’s stated there – sorry.


    Stealing time = not a solution
    There has to be at least an explanation…



    There does not have to be any explanation for any policy. It is assumed that we read the policies before we act. I’m sorry but this is a dead end issue. Your option is to chnage the display name and that’s it.


    Guess it’s self hosted WordPress for me! Thanks.



    You’re welcome.
