Question about inactive accounts clogging up the github

Can the githab administration release a nickname from a user who has not visited the site for more than 3 years and has not shown any activity, including commits, pull requests, even changing an avatar. That is, the one who registered just to take a name and forgot the password and never used the account at all?

:wave: Welcome!

It’s important to note that not all GitHub activity is public, and a user can be very active in private repositories and in organisations without any public indication.

You can ask support to evaluate the account and potentially release the username, but please be aware these are not priority tickets, and it might be some time before you hear back.
