Hello, i have tried to make a new account by a new user name, to whichiam having the trouble of getting invalid name or name already in use, i know its not because when i try to find someone with that user name i want i can't find them meaning its not in use. i don't know what else to do since i would love to play online with my new account.
Also even if i do ( USERNAME )ZXZX it will still say invalid.
There may be an answer to the 'invalid' part here:
As to the 'in use' part, you can't do anything about that, as the ID's already taken.
The problem is, the name i was is not taken, because i tried to search up for the PSN name and no user came up, and the name i was is no where near offencive at all,
PSN IDs can be taken but not searchable since they're completely closed (not deleted, not deactivated, but closed)
You can call Sony and have them do this to an account (this also happens if you get banned).
So it's possible the username is to someone who got banned or requested closing.
Also, even though the username itself may be not offensive, certain strings of characters can be deemed inappropriate (and it may be inappropriate in other languages)
For example (and this isn't a Sony example): In Pokemon X and Y, you cannot name your character "Violet" or anything lik eit, because "Viol" is french for Rape.
So it's possible your username contains some slur in a different language
