How To Claim A Squatted Username

Hi Team,

I read the Github doc on username squatters and wonder what the best way to request a registered but entirely dormant username?

In my case, I am aware of the challenges this will create on my account but nevertheless seek to swap out my username (“investigative”) for the username “pab”.

Is this possible? If so, what’s the best way to proceed?

Thank you!!!

:wave: Welcome!

You’d need to contact support directly so they can review the account to see if the username can be released.

Thank you! On it :slightly_smiling_face:
