I accidently deleted my blog http://mercatusetius.wordpress.com. I’d like to choose the same address again, the blog was empty so I don’t need any posts back. I only want to use the URL again.
Thank you and best regards,
The blog I need help with is mercatusetius.wordpress.de.
I’m sorry but that’s not possible. Note there are 3 warnings and a verification link in an email required to delete a blog. That is because deleted blog URLs are not recycled.
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.
Thanks for the answer. I know that there have been a lot of warnings. ;) I saw other posts where the WordPress team allowed to use an URL again and thought maybe we can make an exception… I deleted it about 2 hours ago.
Oh really? If you have seen any exceptions that weren’t made for Staff members then please provide the links to wherever you say you saw them. Why? Because I have been answering questions here over 6 years as a Volunteer and have invested tonnes of my time into this. So if any exceptions are going to be made, then I would like to have my request to upend the policy and accommodate me to be moved to the very top of the list.
Maybe that case was a bit different:
The blog in question was opened with an old account that the person asking for help was able to access (different email account) – no blogs were deleted – the “deleted” or not found refer to the Hello World first Post that comes with a blog – many people delete that Post then get freaked out when they get a “Not Found” error
OK! I see that it’s definitely not possible. Thanks for your support. Maybe I’ll get a domain for the blog.
