Old usernames unavailable

Hey, I deleted my account 2 years ago. I tried to make a new account with the same username but it won’t let me use the username of my now deleted account. Is there a way to fix this? My username was “HI1681” but now I have to opt for “HI1681_” for the time being. Maybe make every username of a deleted account available again? Thanks.

Hey, you requested the deletion of your old account and we deleted it. In order to prevent any abuse, for example someone taking that deleted account name and impersonating you, we won’t reuse these account names.

@HI1681 this is precisely what I told you on Global Chat.

Chaos would ensue if that change actually happened.
