Talking tech since 2003

Yahoo! has just launched a new page on its site called Wish List, the idea behind the page is that you can reserve usernames that are up for grabs on a first come first serve basis.  So if you really want a username (that’s not being used), add it to your wish list right now and you may get lucky come mid-August.  The wish list page allows you to add up to five (5) usernames that you want (listed in order of preference) along with an email address to contact you if you happen to get lucky and land one of the usernames you requested.

You need to do this by August 7, 2013 at 11:59PM (PDT) in order to be considered eligible to get your hands on the released usernames.  So what are you waiting for?  Go create your wish list.

By the way, I’ve put in for the username: jeff or jeffw.  While I doubt I’ll get either, at least I can say I tried.
