en WordPress.com Forums › Support says name is taken, but it is not Author Posts July 31, 2012 at 2:39 am #963679 okmike77Member I tried to create a blog but it said that name was taken, so I put it into my browser *****.wordpress.com and it said that blog no longer exists, because it was deleted by the user. So WHY is it not available ???? July 31, 2012 at 2:51 am #963767 notawoodpeckerMember Blogs that have been deleted by the owner will remain deleted. We cannot, under any circumstances, allow someone to take over a blog name that was previously owned and deleted by its original/previous owner. http://en.support.wordpress.com/recycling-blog-names/ Author Posts The topic ‘says name is taken, but it is not’ is closed to new replies.
