Hi there, welcome back to NT! Sorry you lost your old account. Perhaps you can PM me the last email you remember using it with and maybe I can find it for you to use again. We have a firm policy that users are only allowed one account active at a time and we would love to be able to get you back the privileges you have earned so long ago.
To post in the General area, we kindly ask that users are with us for at least 30-days as a verified, registered user with no violations. Again, if you wish to not wait this long, we suggest you retrieve your old NT username. Thanks!
