Can the username of a deleted account be reused?

    Hi. My niece recently signed up. She's wondering if she can delete the account she created and make another account with the same username but using my referral link? She hasn't set it up or written anything yet.

      I think she can delete but cannot use the same username

        I was afraid of that. Thanks for answering.

    Like URLs, deleted usernames become available again. So she can go on, but she must be at least 18!

      I did some research and you're right about the minimum age requirement. Thank you for telling me. I'd already forgotten since I signed up over 10 years ago. She's still 15. Can she just keep the account she created and start writing when she's 18? It's a shame since she's a really good writer. She's won writing competitions and was even awarded a medal by a newspaper company for an article she wrote. And she wanted to start saving money so she could attend a Shawn Mendes concert that's rumored to happen in our country in the next couple of years. Hehe.

      Thanks for answering, but my niece decided to just delete the account for now.
