So it's been a while since I logged into the zdoom forums...

Recommended Posts

And I get a message saying I need to contact an administrator because my account has been deactivated.

How do I contact anyone there since my account is disabled? Has this happened to anyone else? I literally don't know where else to post, so that's why I'm here.

I just figured that there's a lot of people who visit both. Thank you for reading this.

Some time ago the ZDoom forums were targeted by some script kiddy that brute-forced his way into several old accounts. There was a pattern of accounts that had just been made to report a bug several years ago and with a post count under 5 that were suddenly coming back so as to insult people; at the same time users who logged in reported getting a message about having had many failed login attempts.

Deactivating inactive accounts was probably done as a safety measure after that.

I'd suggest changing the thread title with "Need help reactivating my ZDoom forum account" so as to better catch the eye of someone who can help you.
