Changing my nickname to another old inactive one

Asked by Rafik Ouerchefani on 2008-07-12

Hello,

I really wanted to have ~rafik as launchpad name as Rafik is my IRC nickname... and my real name...
But it's already used by someone else. The account seems to be old and inactive :

https://launchpad.net/~rafik

"......... does not use Launchpad. This page was created on 2005-06-15."

Is it possible to free it so I can get it ? :)

Thanks.

Hello,

I don't own the other account so this doesn't answer my question.

Ah right, my apologies, in which case you have done the correct thing in opening a question on the matter, hopefully someone can give you a little more coherent answer than I have so far!!

Thank you Steven Rose

Only an LP admin could help me on this by freeing the account ~rafik

Thanks.

No matter, thank you.

Very best regards

but when I try to get it I have this error :

The WikiName https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Rafik is already registered by Rafik.

That Rafik is not me ^^
