Taking the name of an old unused account

Hey, I head you can take the names of old unused accounts. Does anyone know the proccess in doing so?


Hi resigned, 

Thanks for asking!

Usernames at GitHub are offered on a first-come-first-served basis, and are intended for immediate use. If a name might be available for you to use, you will find that out during the process of changing your GitHub username.

You may also want to have a read of our Name Squatting Policy.

Hope that helps!

Hello if there is an inactive organisation name, can I get it I am after the organisation named Sherian which is the name of my company


Who are you? And I’m not squatting on shat lol I created those accts. And like everything in github looking the other way while my idenity keeps getting hacked find all address in my idenities, my name my creative intellectual property digtal assets and proprietary properties returned to me as well as my accts. I will payout to those who help 50% of total after taxes to split but only after all has been returned and the government has been notified that I have secured said property and if the total returned is enough to cover a man’s life being ruined. Legal and sustainable mine forever I shall not look to prosecute anyone I just want my life back
