Short answer: You never logged in to your account at the time Aelwynn purged the registrations, so you will need to re-register and poke Aelwynn or Erwynn to get you set up.

Long answer: The forums seem to be a target of a lot of spam-bots. Despite countermeasures including significant ban-by-IP lists, requirements of captcha entry on registration, etc. I have to ban/delete at least 6 and often several *dozen* posts every day.
On top of that, we get 20+ new accounts created a day - so many that the email notifications sent from this server on registration got it on an email spam list with Google and Yahoo. So we turned off notifications and the list grew...

Tonight I started manually deleting the nonsense accounts. There were over 10,000 "inactive" accounts as such. I quickly realized I would never be able to complete this doing only 100 at a time (which seemed to be the limit on the admin interface). So I ran a "purge" filtering on people who had never logged in. I did scan the list as I could, and generally, all is well, but afterwards, I noticed some recent adds had been killed.

These are probably you - DeadUntilDark, Princess Kara, etc. If you registered but then never logged in. So forgive me and make another go and we'll get you set up.
