I wanted loobylou but apparently someone already had that when I registered yet I've never seen a loobylou on here

Did this ever go anywhere?

I had the same idea, and lots of ideas how to make it work. MN could email everyone who hasn't posted in the last 1 year. Replies within 90 days (after some reminder emails) or they lose that talk name/their MN registration. Then the list of avail. names is made public & people could submit bids over the following month.

Bids start at 50p. It wouldn't raise a lot of money, depends how easy it would be for tech to identify the non-posters.

I wanted foolish, scavenger, misery, minx, mouse... all taken. So is edgarcat, weirdly enough.
