Help in restoring former account

    I already tried pm'ing coolkevin, but i probably didn't explain well enough what my problem is (thanks anyway!), so let me try again.

    Description: this isn't my account! i'm user "Desu"

    Details: due to a new built pc and a total formatting i lost all of my passwords.
    when i tried to retrieve the lost password here, i tried inputting each of the 3 or 4 email addresses i'm currently using, but the only one of them present in the system was the one associated with this account
    (which i probably registered back when Akiba was on the old server and wasn't easily browsable, so i forgot about it).

    Problem: whatever the email connected with the account "Desu" may be, i can't access it anymore

    Solution: i don't know? :p
    maybe connecting this email with my real account?

    as i said to kevin, i'm aware that i'll need to prove my identity as the rightful owner of that account, and i thought about different things, like posting something on my website
    (which is the same as the one in Desu's account), but the only true proof i can bring up is in said account's PM folder:
    one of the last things i did was sending a PM to a mod (i don't remember who, sorry) asking for "my" thread in fetish jav DDL to be un-sticked because all the links were dead and it would have been misleading leaving it there
    (i'm pretty sure these are more or less the same exact words i used).

    so, could anybody please help me?

    (sorry for the long text, and for my 2 infractions too :p
    apparently i've been away for too long...)

    What I don't get is that "you" have have been posting with this account already since one week, and that this account is registered since 2008, even before Desu registered.

    i probably registered this before the Desu one, and then i forgot about it.

    i thought it would be impossible for me to prove that the other one was mine, and being constantly out of space in my seedbox, i began posting before deleting stuff.
    coolkevin could also confirm that i PMed him some days before my first post

    not exactly fair, i agree, but only later i thought i could bring the PMs -and other things- up as proof.

    it's not that big of a deal, anyway: i'm quite fond of that username, but if nothing can be done i won't complain
