Trying to recover account

Hey, I didn't see a post on the front page here, but I haven't logged on to the PA Forums in several years. When I go to unlock my account it gives me an option to have a password reset request sent to my email address.

Looking back through the forum history it appears that at some point Vanilla had it's database compromised and as a result every account had its password locked. If this was something that has happened so far in the past that it's unrecoverable, that's fine, but I'd prefer to return to my old account which appears to be active still from looking at my post history.

If it's way too much of a bother, just let me know and I'll continue on with my life, but if it's just something you can manually fix, I would appreciate it.

Thanks for your help!

    Uh, to be clear here, when I have it send the password reset, the email never sends. If I try to register another account with the same email, it says that email address is unavailable.
