Getting old account back

I was bored one night and I remembered how fun it was to run and maintain a shop on neopets, so I decided to try and get my 5 year inactive account back. I guess I didn't realize how hard that would be.

So, a little background information first... I made this account when I was 9 years old. My baby sitter showed me Neopets and set up my account with her email since I did not have one.

About a week ago I tried to get back the account. I sent in a email asking if it was even possible to get a long inactive account back. 2 days later a Neopets staff emailed with a form to send in. This form included what was your last remembered password, neofriends you remember, what is in your safety deposit box/bank and so on. I answered all of these questions but I couldn't send the form through the email the account was set up on for the reasons listed above. They then replied saying I had sent no information to them. This made me think that they just skimmed through the email and didn't actually read it. So I sent another one again explaining why I couldn't send them the form with the original email account. I also included more information like my pin number and what is in my inventory. They replied back to me another 2 days later saying " Sorry, we can't help you"

I can see why they are so stringent on giving accounts to people that have been inactive for a long time, but come one! I gave all of the information they had asked for, except for the email address. Even then I remembered the last word of the email address.

I guess I will have to start a new account Sad

I think probably because the records of the account purge (I.e. reasons for why they were frozen ,etc)

yeah but the account details like mod notes are probably gone. This site works in a same way too. After a certain time, old inactive stuff is purged to keep the database tables smaller

Starting over isn't that bad. Was your old account worth a lot?

A little irrelevant but Dmitri what happened to making Neomallers a kid-friendly site? Blum 3

Well, my shop size was 30. This won't be hard to get back. But I had like 250,000 neopoints and a transmogrification potion. Don't know how much that potion is worth now a days.

Yes it should, but am I correct that though it should be kid-friendly it will not become geared towards kids like neopets has, since you don't want to deal with the COPPA things?
