I would really like to change my github username, I have seen a few people reporting dormant accounts username release accepted.
Here is a post from Github Staff
But recently github no longer review release request tickets from dormant/inactive accounts and just reply with a generic email :
Thank you for your request. It appears that you are asking about releasing a dormant or inactive username. We no longer review requests to release dormant or inactive usernames. You can view our Username Policy here:
If you hold a trademark to this name and believe there is a clear case of confusion between the account and your trademark, please review our Trademark Policy
Thank you,The GitHub Team
The username Policy has not changed, it is still forbidden to squat a username :
Accounts violating this name squatting policy may be removed or renamed without notice.
The username I want had no activity since its creation (10 years), and last time he logged was 6 years ago.
I don’t understand why my request is denied as the account violates the rules.
