Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

For some reason my account on the main Stack Overflow website seems to have reverted to becoming user{number} with all my profile data (INCLUDING OpenID information) wiped out. The thing is I cannot reset the account anymore nor rename the account, login, or perform any actions.

It definitely is related to this issue, but I cannot reset the account anymore. When I try to login using my OpenID, I get asked to create a new account. I do not want to do this, and I would like to keep my existing reputation and questions.

No e-mail was set, so I can't use the "send info to email" link.

There was a downtime yesterday and 4h of data was lost (according to another meta post). – ringø Oct 10 '10 at 1:58
