If  guessing by the rule an new account can be created to appeal for a account that has been banned or locked. But from the look of this account it was created July last year and it's even a copper member. But suspiciously this is the first activity

Message verified. You should archive that post too, anyway I did it for you: http://archive.is/Hx4I2#selection-2171.0-2171.54

I was told that some/all Global mods can unlock accounts, so its not necessarily required for an admin to unlock, unless stated/proven otherwise. Goodluck though.

The email address was changed recently,so it made a doubt in my mind that the real owner of that account locked the account when someone hacked his account.

BTW you already verified the message from old address so wait for the reply from the one who can unlock your account but there are huge number of people in the queue before your account to get their account back even after proving the ownership.

Depends, if we have a change of password before that message... I think mods or global mods can check if OP account has a password's change before posting that address.

The password is not changed & won't change in near future. As my password is very strong! It's not hacked, It's locked! I made a silly mistake while changing the email!

While on this topic, would it not be better to have a specific board, like Appeal and Inquiries where affected accounts would be limited to posting. This would stop the opening of new accounts everytime someone needs to make an appeal and reduce inactive accounts.

It could be designed that posts made there would not add to post count or activity.
I believe it would be more effective than appeal email, which seems not to be inactive.
And it would also free up the Meta board.

I think it is already in the list of Community generated suggestions to improve the forum but still our admin is not interested on it,maybe he will add these feature in new forum software which is under construction for very long time.

"can be created"... if needed, but in this case he just used his alt and it's perfectly fine

I assume you clicked the link in the message sent to your old email address, eh?
why did you do that if the email change process doesn't ask you to do so? yes... silly you Cheesy

Didn't know things related to account recovery or unlocking accounts take so much time. Very challenging but I wish I've the power to recover these accounts would take 24hr only!

Don't yo uhave to pm cyrus/theymos for an account unlocking. I'm not sure global mods can do it.

Pm cyrus, wait two weeks and then pm theymos, there is more information about what to send to them on this thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=497545.0

Did you send the PM?



Did you also get the pony Grin (I had to do that!)?

The OP has a decent amount of positive trust and trade history.

Provided there are no red flags indicating the OP might not be the owner of his account, I would recommend processing his request. 

@OP -- I would recommend that you amend your signed message to include an email address you want associated with your account. Your signed message does not specify ask to have your account unlocked. Perhaps a good signed message would be:
Quote
My account <account> has been hacked/lost. Please reset the email to <email>. The current date is <date>.
or
Quote
My account <account> has been hacked/lost. I confirm the email associated with my account should be <email>. The current date is <date>. Please unlock my account.

Thanks, QS! I've also reported Close to  500 posts with over 94% accuracy  Cool  Cool

I sent them a signed message with an email address as well. (theymos,cyrus,hilariousandco) Though I think email is not required since it's just locked, not hacked. I see global moderator hilariousandco can unlock accounts!

I appreciate your post, Thank you again.

I hope you get your account back, as a general rule, mine and lots of other experiences, if your address isn't "staked", no admin is gonna do shit.
Damn, you got Hero Member rank and 511 merit, not easy to achieve. Hope you get it back, good luck!

Try resetting the password of the account, it'll give you an account recovery email, try sending a mail to that and pray to all the gods in existence..

Because the queue line is too long, I guess. There are a lot of users waiting for recovering their accounts for a long time. I believe most of them have followed the instruction and the queue becomes too long. Just be patient and everything will be ok.

I don't know if you saw it but Theymos recently created a couple of threads about how to unlock your account(s) :
