    If you deleted this account, it's gone. There is no way to recover it. You would have to restore a db backup made prior to this deletion.

      OK tahnks very much... By the way; it will be better if an option will be added about this problem to next vB versin (3.0.8) (only my idea )

        How do you propose that we do that? the best option is not to delete user accounts.

            I want to ask another question;

            In backup.sql file I found my deleted account's information is below;
            INSERT INTO user VALUES('4', '9', '', '0', 'organik81', '11282228e7345f3b2987cdf888ff605a', '2005-01-24', '[email protected]', '1', '', '', '', '', '', '1', '<span style=\"color: brown;\">Development</span>', '1', '1106301600', '0', '1110928451', '1110929509', '1110406320', '278', '30', '6', '1', '0', '0', '0', '3543', '07-24-1981', '1981-07-24', '30', '2', '', '0', '2', '[email protected]', '0', '0', '-1', '26', '0', 'oh8');
            I tried this to run in phpMyAdmin >> Run SQL Query ; and this is the error below;
            #1136 - Column count doesn't match value count at row 1 
            I didn't understand what's the problem...

            Is it possible to recover my deleted account by this way? Thanx...

              Finally I recovered my account I inserted a row manually into "user" table in phpMyAdmin. Then I edited some values. My ID number & post count & reputation points etc... are like as before now. Thanx anyway...
