recover old (2011) account?

Post by timkostka » Tue Apr 03, 2018 8:03 pm

I had/have? an account on here under the username "kostka" that was last active around 2011. I am quite sure I know the password I used, but it seems the site was compromised in ~2014 and presumably passwords were reset.

1) Am I just SOL here on recovering the old account? A google search seems this is likely the case, but maybe I had solved enough for an exception, not sure. I can't even remember how many problems were available at the time.

2) Is there any way of knowing how many problems I had solved?

The account 'kostka' hasn't had any problems solved. However, it was last used on Friday, 15th July 2016, 05:23 pm.
So I'm afraid there's nothing we can do for this account.
I'm not sure the account 'kostka' is the account you try to recover.

Hm... interesting. I have emails from 2011 from projecteuler that say "Greetings kostka!" so I thought it would be that username. Oh well. Thanks for the quick reply. Fun site.
