    So what's the deal with untaken RW accounts?

    For the past week I've been trying to find untaken word usernames to build a new main on and every word I try says it's taken yet... this Sorry, nobody by this name exists in Neopia. Try another username in the search box below! appears.

    What gives? Is this new?

    They've been recently purged and I believe they are glitched!!

    Yeah....... uhhh...
    That's been happening for a while now, it's SUPER annoying. I have no idea what the deal is but yeah, haven't been able to make a RW account I've wanted in over a year because of that. The last purge purged all the good names but for some reason TNT hasn't gotten around to allowing them to be recreated or something... idk.

    I believe it's either one of the two possible situations.

    1. The account is in the process of being purged, despite it showing the user doesn't exist at all. Will become available at a later time.

    2. The account has become a "forbidden" word. I own a few accounts actually tied to Petpetpark and MonkeyQuest that are real worded names, some very awesome ones that have been forbidden for use from Neo itself. At least last time I checked.

    Or y'know, the accounts could just be frozen.

    I have tried with A LOT of 'untaken' usernames the last year.
    They're buged, and it's very annoying.

    Mod, if they're frozen don't they say 'This account has been disabled.' ?

    I don't think they're frozen..
    The first time you try to create an account with an untaken name, the page says it's available :/
    If you try a second time with the same name, then the page says the name is already taken.
