How can I get a SoundCloud url that isn't taken but won't let me use it?

https://soundcloud.com/whonce isn't taken, and when you go to that URL it says,
"We can’t find that user. A report has been sent to our tech team, and they’re looking into the problem. Please check back in a bit."

I've been trying to use/reserve this URL for a long time to use as my artist name and it isn't in use or anything at all.

When I try to change my name to "https://soundcloud.com/whonce" it works and doesn't say "this username is in use," but when i click "Save Changes" nothing happens and it's been this way for as long as I can imagine.

What can I do?

Thanks!

Hi Harrison,

Unfortunately, the previous owner of this account got suspended due to repeated copyright infringement. Once an account is suspended for this reason, the URL is gone for good 😕
