Need to renew domain mapping purchased by defunct admin

    I’m an admin on, which is a hosted site. I need to renew the domain mapping, which expires on 9/20. We’ve got several upgrades, all purchased once upon a time by a user “MJ” who I do not have any contact information for, and who no longer appears as any kind of user on the blog. How can I get ownership of those upgrades transferred to me (or another admin on the blog) and initiate the renewal, ASAP?
