I deleted a username in order to make it all lowercase. But now I can't recreate it - says username already exists. This was over an hour ago. How long does it take for the cache to clear so I can use that same username again? I need it ASAP. Thanks.

Hi Jill,

We currently do not recycle usernames, but we will be changing that in the future.   If you contact our support team, they should be able to help you recover the account.
