Description

Hi guys,

we're not able to submit new plugin to the repository via this form https://wordpress.org/plugins/add/

Every time we get an error "That name already exists. Please choose another name.". We tried a number of different plugin names to put there like "Tickera", "Tickera - Event Ticketing", "Tickera - Event Ticketing System" but every time same message.

You can see it here https://wordpress.org/plugins/add/?already&name=tickera-wordpress-event-ticketing-system

I really doubt that all those names are reserved yet :)

Thanks!

The error message for that case is incorrect, but the fact of the error is not.

The word "WordPress" is a reserved name. You can't use it in your plugin name.

Thanks!

But it would be great to change the message ;)
