They are the only ones which are able to help you, and  you just need to remain patient as there's a current backlog on recovering accounts as it's not the highest priority. Send a reminder every week or two without spamming them. As long as you've provided them with sufficient evidence and it's formatted quickly, they will eventually get around to you.

Thanks for your respond, yeah it sad that a hacker broke bitcointalk database but I dont understand why bitcointalk forum did not enforced a new security like SMS Auth or 2FA for login, it did not even remind me to change the password ?

Sadly have the same problem on a Senior member account. Thing is that I never posted my BTC address anywhere so now someone is just using my account to collect bounties..

Did you change your password after 2012 Bitcointalk Database breach?
If not, we know how they figured out your password and its being sold at Darknet Marketplace.

Try to send Theymos or Cyrus PM every few months, Chances are your PM got skipped by them accidentally.
I just recovered my accounts too, it took me around 4 months for Cyrus to reply to my PM Smiley

When did the last time you PM'ed either Theymos or Cyrus?
Try to PM them again, your PM might get skipped by them accidentaly
I recovered my account within 5 months, you might recover your account at around my time or longer if you're not lucky enough.

You just got to keep on trying them every so often. I'm not sure how frequent but, send a reminder every 2 weeks/month and eventually they should get back to you. Judging by the amount of people complaining they have been waiting for months there's a huge backlog currently. So it's unlikely they've missed your messages, it's just there's so many people before you in the queue.

I think hackers aimed for merit points.
I think that the number of people suffering from the hacking will increase in future. Sad

I've seen a lot of these threads with users who have proven they own a hacked account but I see very few being recovered. I don't think theymos has the time to help every one of these hacked accounts.

I know it isn't what you want to hear but there is a 90% (or very high) chance that your account wont be recovered.

There are many people who have the same experience as you, too long to recover their account.
