Changing the username and creating a new account.

I recently changed the username of my account so that i can create a new account with that username. But it looks like envato keeps the old username reserved. Thus i cannot create the account with that reserved username.
Is there anyway to release that username ?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

As of now, there isn’t any way to release the username. Envato keeps history of username changes which is displayed on your profile page.

Contact support. I’ve seen another account do this. Might have been in the old system and no longer possible, or it might just be a manual approval thing they can do for you now.
