    The tools for changing blog addresses (URL) and changing usernames is being worked on by Staff and is not currently available to users. When it is available they will announce that the work is done.

    If I make a new blog with my desired address, could I just transfer my original blog to the new one. Would that basically work the same way as changing the address of the original without having to wait for this problem to get fixed?

    I don’t think they were working on it over the weekend. I’m sure they’ll have it done in these two days. Fingers crossed.

    When I signed up today, the very first text field was for the blog address and there was a note that said plainly “Don’t worry, you can change this later.” If I had know it wasn’t true, I certainly would have taken more care with the name I chose.

    It would be helpful, and good customer service, to provide an explanation and estimated fix date.

    If anyone is desperate they could do it the old way. Export the old blog, set up a new one, import the old blog into the new, then get the redirect upgrade for the old one or make it private if you don’t want to keep permalinks.

    When are we going to find out any information about this issue? It’s a poor show being kept in the dark for so long…..

    It has been down much longer than since October 14. I tried to use this tool as long ago as the last week of September and it was down at that time, then came back up briefly, and promptly went down again by the first week of October. Maybe it’s taking so long because they’re making it better and you will get to keep your links instead of having to upgrade? ;P I’m a Polly-Anna….
