The Username Recycling policy has to change.
Yes, I'm aware: per the recycling policy on the website, "Once you have changed your name, the abandoned usernames will be held by Twitch for a minimum of 6 months"
But they're clearly not being recycled. I've been waiting on an old name since the policy was announced, and it had already been changed for at least a year when it was. I had changed it as part of an effort to rebrand some aspects of creation, which has changed directions since then.
Six months is absolutely a reasonable amount of time, but these names are clearly not being recycled. If you're not going to recycle them in a timely manner, please allow us some manner to request old names if available rather than telling us you can't help and we just have to wait when asked.

I've been waiting 6 years
Twitch are liars because they don't stick to their policy.
I'm still waiting for my username for over 6 months
Please change this policy or make it easier to reclaim names that are locked up.
Been waiting almost 2 years for the username I want to free up. And for an entire year it has displayed the "Unless you have a time machine" error indicating that it has been put on the list for recycle but still hasn't been.
I would honestly pay actual money to have the username free up at this point because I am getting sick of waiting.
Waiting for almost 3 years for a username - he follows one accoutn (justin) and doesn't seem to do anything in the platform ever since.
Waiting for a username since 3 years now and twitch gives a fuck at it. I wrote 2 emails in 3 years and i only get these standard blah blah response.
Kennedy Warren commented
There are 2 names that i've been waiting for and they have been inactve for over a year now.
Same here. I've been waiting for quite a long time (ever since the blog was posted explaining that this would happen), hoping that the username I want becomes recycled. This has not happened, and I've come to doubt that I will get it or that they recycle any names at all. Please Twitch, our usernames are important to us.

I agree been waiting on a new name for over a year
Its Invis commented
Yeah something has to be done.
I'd give it at least a year before trying to recycle an inactive name, but other than that I agree 100%
I don't mind how Twitch fix it, but 'just keep checking it for a few years' really isn't an acceptable solution.
Very much agreed, especially when they say one thing and do/dont do another. Along with emailing support about it and only ever getting an automated response back that answers nothing,
We need this.
