    1. Make sure the profile looks inactive. Any activity done in the past year or two won't be changed.

    2. Visit this link:*[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    3. On this page,*[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] , it talks about username squatting and how it's prohibited. Just state how the username on the account is inactive and is username squatting.*

    4. Wait a day or two, you will receive a message saying the username is released. Go get it before someone else takes it!
