I know the procedure to recover lost accounts, but I also see many threads where people are waiting up to several months to get their account restored. I guess restoring accounts doesn't have much priority, as I can imagine the workload for Administrators is quite high.

Can I help?
I can collect and verify evidence, and send it to Admin in batches (for example when I have collected 10 lost accounts, or twice a month). I do think having legit users wait for months makes the forum look bad, and if it would ever happen to me, I'd hate to have to wait that long too.

Sample entry (following theymos' format):
-----BEGIN BITCOIN SIGNED MESSAGE-----
My account <account> has been hacked/lost. Please reset the email to <email>. The current date is <date>.
-----BEGIN SIGNATURE-----
<insert address here>
<insert signature here>
-----END BITCOIN SIGNED MESSAGE-----
verified (not this one) link to brainwalletx.github.io

Here is the unedited post where I posted that address: LINK (plus archive.is link)

I sent that address to someone in a PM with PM ID#...
I can't verify this, so these cases will have to go through PM to Admin.

I'll only spend my time on this if Admin is going to process my reports. I'll request applicants to not PM any Admin if they submit their request in my thread.

Good initiative. Sometimes I wonder if this hack happen to me then I will also have to go through the waiting period. It's really very unfair for people who has legit proof.

I always believe in more mods. Admin needs some supports.

I could not stand the lies against me anymore. I can not prove them wrong too. It's better I live in peace.
So, I am willingly locking mdayonliner. Thank you BitcoinTalk. Be addictive, be a Bitcoiner.

You'll be wasting your time and theirs. I was doing this when people have fully verified their accounts sufficiently and the number of responses I've had from them both is zero and as far as I'm aware they're all still awaiting their accounts to be restored.

That's too bad Sad
Guess I'll lock this thread.

If an Admin still wants to reply, I'm sure they can unlock it Tongue
