To my shock and dismay, the folks at Moviepoet saw fit to, at some point, delete my account there and so I had to go back at re-register and start again at level zero. Thus I’m out of the challenge :(

I’m kind of ticked right now. Maybe I wasn’t active enough over there.

I’m surprised that your account was deleted. If you look through the member list, there are so many Level 0 members and members who haven’t logged in for more than two or three years.

Tis a shame, of course.

I made it to a second level last November. I hadn’t been back until yesterday.

If I were you, I would shoot Chris an email. I’m sure there’s a mistake and he would want to know about it.

Thanks Pia, but I already re-started. As I said, I made it to a L2 there before, so it isn’t that big of a bruhaha.

Your account was never deleted. It is still active. You signed up as Darren J. Seeley and now you created a new account as just Darren Seeley.

I will try and combine them both into one Darren Seeley account for you.
