Your account shows you joined june '10. Is it the post count that is in error? What makes you think you were hacked?

Sure it was, my screen name was changed and the number of posts were changed to new member status.

That is very odd. What was your old screen name? Perhaps we can change it back. An administrator may have changed your name for some reason. You can always change your password if you think someone has it. I don't believe a user can change their name, i'm not sure about that. Why don't you try it and if you can change it back, problem solved. Look around in your profile and see if you have that option.

I can't change this and the screen name is already in use, so there must be two accounts somehow.The password has never been changed so I know this is not the case.
I don't understand how this could have happened and should be able to access my account as usual.

Could it be that you created xandx some time back, forgot about it and created another account which became your regular account? Then one day you logged in and by mistake logged into the old account. Try logging out of this one and logging into the old one. You still have not told us what the old name was.

I see you created another mod report but you have not supplied any information for us to go on. I asked what was your old name and you have not answered. We may be able to do something but you have to cooperate first. Give all info you have including when the old name was registered. I seriously doubt it was a hack. A hacker could not change your name and post count unless they hacked the code for the site and then your password would not work. None of this makes any sense.
