I want to make an instagram account for my webcomic called Dumpster Sandwich, but someone out there already took the name. I want to contact this person to see if we can work something out so I can get the name BUT this person has no posts and I have no idea how to get a hold of him. Any ideas???

Here is the account http://instagram.com/dumpstersandwich

I don't know much about Instagram, but if they haven't left any contact information, you may be out of luck. Unless you can send them a private message within the site, but it looks like this might even be an abandoned account.

Another thing you could consider is contacting Instagram and asking them to grant you the name. If the account has been vacant long enough, they may be willing to shift it over to you.

But again, I don't know Instagram, so I have no idea what their policies are on this sort of thing. It's worth asking, but don't get your hopes up, because they don't have to do anything.

It doesn't seem likely that I will be able to find this person... oh well. But thanks for the ideas, I guess it's worth trying once.

Alternate solution, since you can't find the person anyway - why don't you just add "comic" to the end of the username? If you can, I don't know about username character limits on Instagram. It would easily distinguish which one is yours.

Unless you don't want to, and that's cool, too.
