    Yup, I want a name that has been used before by somebody else. It has been deleted a couple of weeks ago... Is it going to be possible in the future to have a blog with that name?

  8. If you check the forum search box you can find this has been discussed many, many times. The answer is "no" .

    You can also check the FAQs and confirm that when you delete a blog there are clear warnings about the consequences of doing so. Once deleted the blog domain cannot be used again.

    I personally think it's crap that you can't reuse the name you had before. I'd like them to explain why they do that. I removed mine, but then decided that I'd like to start it up again and try to make something of it. I couldn't, so I had to go elsewhere.

  10. I personally think you should read the warnings before you delete something. But hey, I'm funny that way.

    I couldn't, so I had to go elsewhere.

    What great news! Thanks so much for sharing your swan song.
