    Purge... yes, some kind of. In May, the complete Stratic Forum (not only the UO section) crashed due to a weird coincidence of errors. This forum here was first only a substitute platform. Some diligent people could restore (almost?) all of the former data and then it was transfered to this place. The restoring process is still going on but as you can see most of the old sections are back up.

    Your old account and the data within isn't all gone. Just inform a Mod and he/she will give you further informations how to reactivate it.
     
  3. Yup - that was a crash for ALL Stratics forums a forensic recovery was needed! That's data recovery similar to how the Challenger shuttle data was recovered.

    Do contact Brekkee thru the emails Nenime supplied. If your old account is recoverable (mine wasn't) they'll set you up and give you any instructions for getting it merged to this one.

    And if it was long ago enough, your account might have even been lost the FIRST time the database went to pot.
