Hello Community,
How are we, doing? I'm hopping everyone is having a great day.
So today i recovered one of my old account from 2013. I never trained niether did anything on the account, I simply created that account since i was able to get a rare 4 letter username "uuss". So today after i recovered my account & when i tried loggin it asked me to type new username. I really couldn't believe that at first and was in bit shock. C'mon i created that user and i own the right for that username, I have all the evidence to proof that the username was created by me.
P.s. I couldn't create thread without adding a new username to the account, That's why i'm using my main account to post on forums.

Would be so helpful if jagex team could get my original username.

Thank, With Regards

Hey there!

Character names are automatically removed if an account is inactive for a long period of time.
So that is what happened to you.

If the username is now already taken I'm afraid you will have to keep this one or come up with a other one.

You can find more information here: Where has my character name gone?

Appreciate your reply, I mean since when homie? The current username i have been using since many years and i was inactive for like 700 days+

Truly that isn't fair to just take a username from a veterans account and give it to different person. Is there a way i can contact the J-mods? I ain't used to rs forums.

And you have linked my Topic instead of the Topic which you intend to re-direct.

One of the requirements about those Name clean ups, was like this if a account has been inactive for 6 months and never been a member on that account , would the name be removed and putted back into the Name pool.

Jagex did even send a Warning email out to those Account's and told if they still wanted to hold their names , should they log into the game before a certain date , if none responded , would the name be released.

Since your account was made in 2013 and never been a member , is that the reason of why it got removed.

If it once had member would it be 2 years , if my memory are correct.

Jagex do not have a service for that , so only hope you got are that a J mod do look into this thread and offering some help , but they don't have to.

Whoops, i edited my link.

There is no point in talking to a Jmod about this as there is no way to undo this or give you this username back once it's taken by a other user.

Only thing you can do is waiting and try every couple of weeks to check if the name is available again.
