My account got reset or deleted
BordesBenjamin (0)

I wanted to creat a new code so I tried login in to my account, but the password I remembered didn’t work. So I tried « forgot my password ». It said the account was not found so i thought maybe I was login in for that much time from google without a password on my account, but it seemed wired since I have been using repl.it for 4 years. But i did anyway and got the « Choose your languages » message you get when you create an account. I also realised the user name which was @bbenjamin changed to @benjaminbordes and all my repls are gone. I really need them!

hey, looks like an account with the username bbenjamin was deleted earlier today. If this is your account I can restore it for you. Unfortunately some data might be missing as we start a cleanup process once a user deletes their account.

@turbio Thank you, I would love to. However I never got notified on my email address for confirmation or something like « we are sorry to see you leave ».
Also, do I need to delete the account I apparently created on the same email adresse that I am currently using ?

We don't send an email when you delete your account.
Your account @bbenjamin should be restored now and your repls should start coming back. The account @BordesBenjamin is no longer associated with your email.

Thanks, but it was too late everything is gone.
And I think it could be great if there was a confirmation email before the account gets deleted or at least a notification to let people know, especially if they didn’t ask for it.

@BordesBenjamin any idea how your account would have gotten deleted? We show a warning popup when you go to delete your account.
