WP response is it’s already taken. When going to skeptictexan.wordpress.com, response is that the blog has been removed. Why, then, cannot I use it (skeptictexan.wordpress.com)? The blog I need help with is texanareview.wordpress.com. February 8, 2013 at 6:30 pm #1149334 timethiefMember I’m sorry but reclaiming a deleted blog URL is not possible. It takes bypassing 3 warnings that blog deletion is irreversible and clicking a confirmation link in an email to delete a blog for good reason ie. deleted blog URLs are not recycled. http://en.support.wordpress.com/delete-site/ http://en.support.wordpress.com/recycling-blog-names/ You can register another blog with a similar name. http://en.support.wordpress.com/register-a-blog/ Or you can register a domain via a domain mapping upgrade and it will not matter what the underlying .wordpress.com address is. http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/ http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/register-domain/ Author Posts The topic ‘Name – SkepticTexan.wordpress.com’ is closed to new replies.
