10 year old account recovery possibility?

Post by gnowun uno »

Ten years ago when I was a mostly bedridden cancer patient, I was playing this game quite a bit.
I used the same email address back then as I do now. I *thought* I used the same login ID as well but I am not sure.
I was wondering if it might be possible to recover any old characters I might have used from 10 years ago.
Is there any other account names associated with my email address from back then or has everything old been purged?

If it was 10 years ago, you are talking 2009, at that time we used Platynas
server. This server had many deficiencies, which caused Platyna to purge
accounts that had not been used in 6 months.

Her last purge was in Jan 15, 2012. which means your account had been idle
for over a year. Sorry but they would have been purged at that time!

For the record, you can look at server.themanaworld.org/gm/ purge logs and look for your old Login ID there.

We could always try looking for your account in the backups, but if it is listed on the purge list, it is unlikely we'll find anything there.

I managed to recover my forum account from 2008, but not sure I can recover my original game account. I was playing during the time of the purge some, so it may be possible. I do still have the same email account. Any chance I could bum some favors and get someone to check if it is possible to recover?

Thanks,
