en WordPress.com Forums › Support old Username Author Posts July 5, 2013 at 11:26 pm #1336962 mergedresearchMember Because I changed my mind, I want to retrieve and use my old username/address to replace the new one for good. I do understand I cannot do this. 2 questions: Why can a user not get back his/her old username, even if you are the original registrant and it’s still available? Is there a wizard or God that will get it back? Glenn The blog I need help with is stronginstruggles.wordpress.com. Author Posts The topic ‘old Username’ is closed to new replies.
