Frankly I'm appalled that there was no warning that my account would get deleted/wiped/rename or whatever. Definitely not happy with this.
If you get your account renamed (we can do that for you) I can get your posts restored. We sent out an email and had banners on the site (which apparently some adblock users never saw) stating what was going to happen with accounts throughout most of December and the week and a half leading up to the switch in January.
Even with that said, I'm frustrated too and I'm sorry.
I just want to mention I did infact see the email in my mail, however I decided to not click on it as it seemed like a phishing mail. My reasoning was: I saw no reason why you guys would mail me.
That being said, thank you and the rest of the mods for all the effort that has been put into restoring our names. Especially so quickly!
