Im just wondering if putting a password question in the account will protect it as well as you will know the answer to the question and hacker wont? 

There are any # of additional measures that can be taken - 2FA, secret question, secret pin, etc... Any of which would be fairly
easy to implement.

As it is a Bitcoin forum, binding it with a bitcoin address for recovery is the best option and that is implemented. Just people need to be aware of it or at the time of registration there should be an exclusive mention to it. There are lot of profiles on this forum which is not associated with any address. It is difficult to recover them if they face a hack.

This feature must have been implemented recently. Back when I registered in 2011, we did not have this option. People would put address in their sig, but that was more for begging for donations.

I had a BTC address bound to the previous account. Still no joy from on high. No big deal now. At this point it would
be an even bigger pain in the ass if the account got restored to me.

If u posted an address from your account, then why dont u show theymos that u can send Tx out of it. Just ask him to provide an address and send him a negligible amount to show your ownership. Then what stops u from recovering your account ?

I already offered. He never replied to me. Not publicly and not privately.

You could also PM Staff and Global Mod., I'm sure they would give you a hand for this.

It's no big deal at this point. I've got the new account and people are getting used to seeing
me use it. It's all good Smiley

Been there, done that. No reply. It's really a non-issue at this point though. But thank you for
offering suggestions Smiley

You welcome, I wanted to help you to the max. but maybe Theymos is that busy.

You can also revise what you did wrong to not get this account locked as your old one did.

Wish you the best of luck with your new account.

It seems to me that theymos is really busy all the time.
Maybe he should give more power to global mods, or maybe promote one or two of them to admin to share the workload...
