Hello, I just received an email that my email was changed on my account(lakimens)
https://i.imgur.com/mJbyyUM.png

I haven't sent/posted a Bitcoin address, mainly because I don't use Bitcoin.
The address that is on my profile is for an altcoin, PRiVCY, I'm in an airdrop with it.
The previous address that was on my profile was my Ethereum address, I can also prove ownership of that.
Please help. My account has 390+ activity, more than a year of active posting. My account is locked right now, because I didn't want the hacker ruining it.

You can prove you own the account by signing a message with that address.

I am afraid without a singed bitcoin address you have not much chance to get the account back. However if you have an ETH address quoted by another member then you can sign that address and give it a try. I guess global mods can unlock lock accounts.

In case you do not know how to sign a message for ETH address:

Admins don't accept signed messages from eth addresses. Only a bitcoin signed message/PGP message might get an account recovered.

And addresses on a profile don't count,as they can be changed anytime.

Admins
For a locked account I guess a Global Moderator can unlock it. Not 100% sure but I guess I have seen somewhere hilary posted it. Excuse in advance if I am wrong for both hilary and Global Moderator  Smiley

That post in only a couple months old, it probably won't be accepted as proof.

When the subject of buying BTC with Paypal comes up, I often remember this:

The address looks legit, it hasn't been changed. Have a look on my last post. I have undated it with the spreadsheet of the bounty and screenshot.

Are you sure your account is only locked? If yes, do sign a message, if hilariousandco/some other global mod finds it enough to unlock your account, then do so. Sign a message saying this:

Quote
"address": "Your eth address",
  "msg": "Today's date. I, your username am in control of this wallet and my account has been locked. Please unlock this account",
  "sig": "...",
  "version": "...",
  "signer": "..."
}

And, for the love of god don't fill the above quote just like that. Sign a real message,and post it here. To sign an eth message ,go here: https://www.myetherwallet.com/signmsg.html
For a locked account I guess a Global Moderator can unlock it. Not 100% sure but I guess I have seen somewhere hilary posted it. Excuse in advance if I am wrong for both hilary and Global Moderator  Smiley
Yeah, hilariousandco can. I don't know about other global mods tho.

Does anyone know how much time it usually takes for mods to reply to my message or unlock my account?
I'm in this Signature campaign and I need 5 posts to receive the reward.

No one knows. Usually it takes weeks even months. All you can do is keep bumping this post every after 24 hours and patiently wait. Good luck.

I am fairly familiar however like you, we all are also wondering about all these. We discussed about all these in various topics, several times. Have a look...
What we really need is faster/better account recovery (for hacked/lost password and email incident). Make the process automated or semi-automated would be great/fast solution and already mentioned in these thread :
System to prove account ownership and recovery automatically - Demo included
Proposal: prevent account hack
When will the account recovery problem be solved?

I guess it's not a priority for theymos at the moment.

Maybe he doesn't have enough time or something else, but I think there's a lot of people that would love to work on this forum. I think you're one of those people.
