Someone deleted my blog

  1. Hello,

    I've got a wordpress blog: http://aulievremort.wordpress.com/ , I've worked a lot in it and it's very precious to me. Today, I have noticed that somebody has destroyed it. It no longer exists. When I type its adress in my internet explorer, it just says:

    " aulievremort.wordpress.com is no longer available.

    The authors have deleted this blog. "

    I have nothing deleted. Why does this happen? Is there a solution? I've always thought that wordpress.com is a very reliable option, and I would be very upset if the content of my wordpress blog is forever lost because somebody has hacked it.

    Here's my contact e-mail : [email redacted]

    Thank you.
    Blog url: http://aulievremort.wordpress.com/

  2. aulievremort.wordpress.com is no longer available.
    The authors have deleted this blog.

    How many offical users did that blog have?
    How many people had access to the log-in information for that blog?

    If you are the only user of that blog and no-one else had access to your log-in information then it sounds as if your blog may have been hacked.

  3. Oops! What I posted makes no sense at all as you cannot log into a deleted blog. But if you have other blogs under that same username account then log-in to them and do what I posted above.

    I've flagged this thread for Staff attention.

  4. Sorry to hear about your blog. I hope it gets resolved soon. Does anybody here know how to ask site administrators to invite them? I am trying to do this for blog.gcflearnfree.org, so I can email myself some articles on their tutorials. Please let me know if you know how to do this. I went to the support page here and typed it in with no results(nothing found). Thank you.

  5. WordPress.com itself is very secure, but passwords are only as good as you make them. Also, if your email gets hacked (as Yahoo has recently) suddenly the hackers get access to your WP.com blog, because they just click the Forgot My Password link and the email shows up with the new link to get in.

  6. aulievremort, that blog was deleted by your account 9 hours ago.

    First, please change your WordPress.com and email password (as your email can be used to reset your WordPress.com password). Let us know when that's done, and I'll see if we can restore it.

    pat901, as your issue is unrelated, please open your own thread.

  7. Thanks macmanx. I tried to do what you asked a minute ago when I signed in here again, but got scared because I got the same message I got earlier at blog.gcflearnfree.org. It said "You are logged in as "pat901" and do not have the necessary privileges to access the dashboard for
    "wordpress.com". If you are not "pat901", please log out and log back in with your username. If you are "pat901" and you need access, please ask an administrator of the site to invite you". Sorry if I made you upset by posting this here, but since I do not know what else to do at this point, I thought I should inform you of the type of trouble I'm having. Please let me know what I should do, as I am now completely lost and confused!!! Thank you.

  8. pat901, you can create your own support forum thread via the form at http://en.forums.wordpress.com/forum/support#postform

  9. Thanks for replying macmanx. Will do.
