What happened to my old account

I_Am_SamI_Am_Sam Posts: 3 Newbie
I came here at a very difficult time in my life. I took some time off for personal reasons but recently tried to log on and my old account (I am Sam) has completely gone, what happened?

    Welcome Back!

    It could be due to the change in boards, or how long ago since you last logged in? might be a good idea to @ the mix and ask them. Or you could post about what you are going through on your new account as writing about the difficult time you are having might help how you feel :)

    Hey Sam! 

    Since the switch from vbulletin to vanilla some old accounts didn't log on before the switch has been lost and registered as "previous member" 

    I don't know if there's a way to get that back so definitely worth asking a mod. 

    All the best :)

    Hey @I_Am_Sam

    Welcome back! 

    As @Laine and @eyepatch mentioned, we recently moved to a new forum software and because of data protection laws, we had to get everyone's permission in order to move their accounts over to our new forum. To do this, everyone needed to login to their account between March-June before we moved. For those people who didn't login to their account before this time, their posts and threads still remain on the forum but they are all under the username 'Former Member'. You should still be able to find your threads if you search for them. It's not possible to link your old threads to your new account I'm afraid, but you are more than welcome to start new threads to reach out for support about anything. 

    It's lovely to have you back here :)
