If You Havent Yet Moved Your Feedburner Account To

Or risk losing your Feedburner ID as Google does not reserve it for you.

I did not try to move my feed ID feeds.feedburner.com/pratham till as late as yesterday, and when I did, I found someone else (legit) had already taken it. The Google migration also fails since it doesn’t know what to do with two feeds pointing to the same ID.

So now the URL feeds.feedburner.com/pratham is mine, but the newer feeds2.feedburner.com/pratham is not, and I don’t know how to migrate to Google or get my ID back.

I’ve written to Google and am awaiting their reply.

Update 12/Feb: Google seems to have fixed the problem, and I’ve moved to the new Feedburner.
