Time thief, thank you for response. I understand that it is currently unavailable and that I can therefore not use it, but that is exactly my question: when will it be available again?
I don't want to purchase a domain mapping upgrade, I've already purchased a domain. Why on Earth would I spend more money for something that I shouldn't need to spend money for?
WordPress can't just have a function remain unavailable for weeks at a time, especially since they say they don't know when it will be available again. That's not a response, that's just saying, "hey, we know you paid for you domain, but sorry, you can't use one of the main features for it and we have no idea when you will be able to use that feature. It could take another month, so you've just lost that month plus the three weeks you've already lost, but tough luck."
All I'm asking is: maybe you don't know the exact date it will be available again, but can you please tell me approximately? I would like to cancel my domain if it really is going to take another three weeks. As much as I want to stay with wordpress, I just don't have that kind of time.
Please tell me if you know when the option will be available again.
