Hi Garbee

I got the email yesterday morning, and the modal that comes up is the same
one if you manage the page and select to accept it.

The modal has an option to "change URL" but this changes your existing url
( *the one with all the numbers *) to the pre allocated one. There used to
be an option that would allow you to request a new name, but this seems to
have been removed.

If we could get a contact on the team, that would be rather useful.

// Nic
