I have posted nearly 200 posts ( if I remember correctly ). Some of them being rather useful ( e.g. a script to get notifications when a command has finished ).

Now they all disappeared ?!

Keep in mind posts placed in Off the Wall do not up your post count. (I myself am nearly at 1600!) :)

See the View your posts link at the top right of the main page and whlie viewing forums.

Seems that you haven't posted that much. Perhaps you posted them to another forum? They wouldn't suddenly disappear for only your userid.

As I said - it were around 200 posts. I had 3 "stars". Now only 3 topics are shown with answers from me.

This is rather strange and I will now look for some of the threads I created / replied to.

OK - here is a topic where I discussed something to help someone. Now all my answers are gone. See how the topic creator talks to himself ? My answers disappeared. There were around 5-10 answers from me.

http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-451563-highlight-cinergy.html

Edit: Topics that I created are gone completely while topics I replied to do not contain my replies anymore.

I would really appreciate some admin intervention as it seems that the forum's database either is corrupted or has been hacked. And even if someone only had found out my password he would not have been able to delete my old posts.

Is there some admin I can mail ? I think this is rather important ( not only for me, but also for this board's security ).

Merged your post from the Feedback thread. I'll point out the issue to others.

I deleted it because everything is already in this topic.

Uh, i think it may be possible someone accidentially deleted your posts. Please give us some time to review the problem - i'm very sorry about that.

Better you than a hacker - I already imagined how a hacker got acces to some of my private data and going to hack any of my accounts.

Thanks for looking into it.
