FAQ 25

The fourth paragraph of FAQ 25 currently reads as follows:

Once you have renamed your journal, it cannot be undone. The old username will be permanently unavailable for both future renames and new account creations.

This is only correct if the user chooses to have their old username redirect to their new username. However, if they choose to mark their old username as deleted, it is eligible for purging, and if it is purged, it is available for renames and new accounts.
