Some accounts accidentally deleted.
« on: August 01, 2011, 11:35:34 AM »
Recently over 180,000 spambots were deleted from the system.  In and amongst those, a number of regular users were also (accidentally) deleted.  :-[

If your forum name starts with A or with Ba - Bh, your account was accidentally wiped out and you need to sign up again.  I imagine you could use the same forum name.  

It's possible, but highly unlikely, that other legitimate accounts were also scrubbed.  If you can't log in, please re-register.

Apologies for the inconvenience.

Thanks for clearing out the spambots.  I'm sure anyone whose legitimate account was deleted will understand.  :)

Some accounts were deleted again while removing some 2000 0 count posters. Not sure what I did wrong, was searching for members with 0 posts to delete, yet somehow ended up deleting anyone whose user name starts with an A. I apologize sincerely.

Hey no worries.  Accidents happen.  Is there a way we can recover those deleted accounts?  Maybe restore a previous backup of the forum?

Don't know, but if we did we would likely also restore the several thousand spam members that I also deleted. The deletion was names that began with A

I am still here, so all is fine. Not starting with "A" though, so there you go  8)
