My previous account was seemingly deleted.

My login didn't work; when I attempted to retrieve password, it said my username didn't exist; when I attempted to retrieve username, it said that no account was associated with the email I entered. But searching through that email, I find my "BoardGameGeek email verification" email for the account I created (last year).

So I created a new account using the same email address. It is as if my previous user account has been completely deleted.

Judging from my emails, this is also the third BGG account I've created--the other two have seemingly been deleted, through no action of my own.

I'm a casual user and have only been using the accounts over the years to keep track of games I've played. I don't login often. Was my account deleted due to inactivity? How can I prevent my current account from being deleted?

Thanks!

No, accounts aren't deleted due to inactivity. Only if there is serious rule-breaking. Are any of these yours?:

Just to correct the implication, if an account is "nuked" for spamming or whatever, it's gone. A reference to it would produce "N/A".

You can click on the usernames col_w posted and look at Contributions to see what each account has done. But, not much (I think) so just using the current account may be easiest.

LOL - This problem has been seen many times before. 99% chance it is the reoccurring PBKAC...

Thanks all. None of those accounts are mine. I've contacted Octavian to see what if anything can be done.
