Thank you for your inquiry. The redirection between these two accounts has been broken. The devote account is now a deleted journal, and will be purged in approximately 30 days, at which point it will be available to be renamed to.

Maybe it takes a little bit but I checked and ~devote is still redirecting to ~kissable. And I know a lot of times a journal is deleted for much longer than 30 days before it is purged. Is this going to be the case with ~devote?

My apologies, the change normally takes place immediately, however a technical issue prevented it from occurring in a timely fashion. I am not being redirected from 'devote' to 'kissable' at this time - please let us know if the problem continues for you.

Unless something happens to stop the purging process from running, 'devote' should be available in 31 days. If you go to [http://devote.livejournal.com], there is a link provided for you to subscribe to be notified when the username is available.
