re-use of a blog domain

Travel Forums System Talk re-use of a blog domain

1. Posted by wormie (Budding Member 3 posts) 11y

Just joined today, so still being kind of a stupid user.

I started a blog (went fine), decided to delete it, because I wanted to make a chance and could not find a way to do it. And the problem is? I would like to use the same domain again, but keep getting an error. So will it be ok for re-use in some time, or should I just give up and make another domain?

Usually the error is between the chair and the keyboard

Don't worry, I've heard this one before :) Send me a pm with the domainname you're after and I'll unblock it. We're not planning to change the system to allow for this automatically as it's in place to hinder deleted blogs from reappearing (as you noticed) under another members name....

Don't feel bad!! I did the same thing when I set mine up a couple of months ago. I did a "sample" one just to see how it all worked, then deleted it. Peter had to unblock mine too. (Thanks again, Pete!!!)

I'm a new user, same problem. And I'm a novice with this kind of stuff. What is a pm?

PM = Private Message. I've gone ahead and put yours live again. It's obviously still private. Let me know if you have any questions!
