The domain I want is already taken; the owner of the domain hasn't used the blog in over a year. Is there any way I can contact the user and ask for the domain name? Do you delete unused domains after a specific amount of time?!
Need help? Check out our Support site, then
Taken domain is unused; how can I get it?
They never free up taken domains. If you leave a comment on the blog, that's one way of possibly getting the owner's attention.
You can register another blog with a similar name. http://en.support.wordpress.com/register-a-blog/
Or you can register a domain vis a domain mapping upgrade and it will not matter what the underlying .wordpress.com address is.
