There were plans to restore the accounts, and there still are, to the best of my knowledge.
But it seems the database backup got...misplaced.
So if it's found, the old forum data should be restored, if not, there is a partial backup or something like that in someone's(not sure who i is) possession...
I also have the same account name (as do most of us), and I do hope that won't create problems.
Friendship is magic!
