    I've been trying to get a username for my website (i've got over 25 fans) but it's not working! I am pretty sure that nobody has reserved the name, because it's pretty vague.

    Is there a way to bypass their system and get my freakin username?? It's driving me crazy.

    Do they flag certain usernames or something? Is there a way to find this list??

    This doesn't make any sense how can you not have a "username" but already have fans?

    Are you talking about a domain name?

    As for fan page titles yes there are keywords that can't be used.

    You have to get more fans before you have the right to choose username. I'm not sure how many.

    You can select the username once you have 25 fans/likes.

    @OP: just have a look if the URL that you want to register isn´t already taken, for example by testing the URL like: facebook.com/yourURL
    If its taken you could "experiment" a little, for example with /your-url or /your-url-com etc. etc.
