Possible username purge soon  
It looks like we might get another username purge soon! If there are any usernames you've been meaning to get rid of, now may be a good time to delete them. There doesn't seem to be a set date on when exactly the purge happens, though.

Deleted Accounts Purge  
If you were waiting on some usernames that were deleted, but not yet purged, check now.

UPDATED! You must be releasing at least 100 accounts at this time to contact Dreamwidth Staff. Thank you! - August 09, 2012.

First and foremost, I'd like to thank everyone who has contributed to the community. Since there is no deleted and purged username list on Dreamwidth at current, I'm glad to see users picking up some unwanted names.

Secondly, if you are a user who has a large number of accounts ( at least 100 accounts, please for [staff profile] denise's sanity) that you are not using and want to relinquish those accounts in one go without having to manually delete them all and without facing any possible consequences for name sitting, [staff profile] denise has given you an alternative to do so without possible repercussions for name sitting!

Simply follow the steps below:
  1. Head to Support, open a request in the Account Payments category.
  2. Use the email address the accounts are registered to.
  3. Leave a list of account names that can be freed up.
  4. Send! You're saving yourself and others rename hassle and Dreamwidth Points. You're awesome.
  5. If you'd like to still leave the list here for others to find, feel free. I've created a new tag, marked unregistered for you to put these names under.

    It's a manual process right now, but this will allow these accounts to bypass the deletion. purged username, and rename token periods. Please feel free to link this entry and pass this on to your circle.
