Why 2009? I've been registered on these forums for ever!

I haven’t been active for years. But I was on this site since the last millenia I think. Why does my profile say I joined in 2009, and what happened to all my vintage posts?
Just curious.

It looks like you might have two accounts here. Is this yours?

If so, we’ll close one of them. Would you like to stick with the old account?

Yes. I’ll use the old account. Thanks!

Cool. Have you checked that you can still access it?
