    There is a youtube account that has not been logged into now for over 2 years, the account does not belong to me, but the name of the account matches my name, and I am wanting to signup for my own account that will match my name in the url like youtube/myfirst&lastnamehere

    This person dosen't even have any videos uploaded to youtube, so i can't get his account deleted by continously flagging his videos since he has none up.

    And he dosen't have or dosen't check the email any longer that he used to sign up with because I've tried to contact him many times in the past but to no success.

    So what other option to I have to delete his inactive account so that I can make use of a account that has my name in the url???

    Can anyone here delete his account for me or tell me how to do it myself?

    I hope this dosen't break any rules here, as I don't see this as anything malicious, since the account has no content and hasn't been logged into for over two years.

    I have several youtube accounts each for a different purpose but I really want to have this persons deleted so that I can sign up with a url that matches my name.

    This is an excellent question, however I'm not sure this is the correct forum as this community focuses on Search Engine Optimization. Seeing how I did find it in the Google index, it also figures that it is unanswered, and after two months.

    I have the same predicament and, even though its not too important to me, it is important enough to post this reply.

    Does anybody know how long before youtube trashes inactive accounts? Can this be requested?

    Whats up you SEO back doorers, anyone care to share a hack?
