    Is it possible to regain control of an username? I changed my username and now I can’t get to some things that remain attached to the old username.
    Blog url: http://asalaranja.wordpress.com/

    The blog I need help with is asalaranja.wordpress.com.

    I’m sorry but the answer is “no”.

    This is a very common problem. I flagged this thread for staff attention.

    Once you change your username you will not be able to change it back and the old name will not be available for anyone else to use. …

    3. Read the information presented on this page very carefully. Important:You will not be able to change your username back. The old name will be reserved and no one will have access to it.

    I really do not know why they did that. Changing the display name worked just fine.

    I now have the mudadesenvolvimento.wordpress.com associated with the asalaranja username and vice-versa. I would like preferently separated accounts, otherwise at least recover the stated url

    anyways thanks for the fast response

    You cannot recover a deleted URL.

    the url was not deleted. It is associated to the account that is in the “limbo”. If someone in wordpress manages to link the referred account to an email, I think this could be solved.
