    $\begingroup$ You just earned your 100 rep association bonus on 25th April. So this is a new acc. Period. You will need to ask why your old acc was deleted. $\endgroup$ Apr 26, 2021 at 6:05
  • $\begingroup$ It seems your chemistry and physics accounts are older than this. Maybe you are thinking of bookmarks there? $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1


As mentioned in the comments, it seems very likely that you are talking about a deleted account. An account with userid 900638 called Waybig is still displayed in Google Cache, but not on the site.

Since the deletion seem to be rather recent, you could check your favorites using this SEDE query: Questions favorited by a specific user. (The questions won't be there after the next SEDE update, AFAICT the votes from deleted users are not stored in the SEDE database. So you'll see them there only this week. This is the status from the last update on this Sunday.)

At the moment, this query returns 44 result for the userid 900638.

Since SEDE still has your account in the users table, you can find also some other data about the old account. For example, a list of all questions and answers. But both questions and answers can be obtained from SEDE for deleted accounts, too.

    $\begingroup$ @WayBig I am not exactly sure how the notifications work if a user deleted an account and created a new one. (But since you say you can still see them, it seems plausible that the notifications might be tied to the network profile.) $\endgroup$ Apr 26, 2021 at 10:21

    $\begingroup$ @MartinSleziak: thanks for this answer. I have cached the results from that SEDE query and I am now working on a method to get them to WizardMath if they haven't gotten them for themself. $\endgroup$
