    Account deletion doesn't need an email code anymore, you just press delete account twice. Or at least that's how it was when I nuked a sock a while back.
    Just tried again and it said invalid key.

    Hello again.

    Sorry for the apparent inactivity from us on this - we've been working hard to figure out what went wrong, whether there are residual problems (there is limited evidence that there are), and why our normal testing procedures didn't reveal the problem.

    We're a small team, and it's not always easy for us to fire-fight and remain as communicative as we should be. It's also taken us a little time to identify exactly who may have been affected. But we now believe we have a list of people whose accounts were potentially viewable and will be emailing them with advice.

    If anybody has any specific concerns or questions, then please email me mark@gamer-network.net.

    Translation :

    "Wednesday is doughnuts and Nerfwar day in the Eurogamer office.
    We'll get back to fiddling about with the website when the sugar rush subsides and we've all retrieved our ammo from under the desks / behind the cupboards / out of Bertie's ear etc

    Anyway - it's just a userid on a gaming website - it's not like it's your ruddy bank account! Get over it!"

    Do I have to go to the clinic again? Everything seems to be in its right place, but I have a terrible itch.

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    I think we can all agree that the worst part of this is that user tim2000000000000 was forced to delete his account :(

    I got the email. I now feel totally reassured that the site wont fall apart the next time someone changes a font size.

    Seems so.

    I hate to get all "someone please think of the children!" (steady on ecosse) - but can we please have the option to delete our sent PMs for when this fucks up again.

    Based on an extensive review of my own posting history, I concluded that I was not affected by this latest breach of security and blantant disregard for our online wellbeing.
    I just go the email though ... so it looks like I was wrong.

    My account shows no hint of being tampered with either. Can I ask how you're deciding whether an account was affected or not?

    Oh, I've just noticed the site's written in PHP. There's your problem.

    And maybe a testing process more rigorous than two people browsing the forum for five minutes.

    Why does getting an email like this make me feel so special?

    /life reevaluation imminent...
  • Deleted user 28 November 2013 15:36:32
    I suspect it was all the regular (popular ;) ) users that were in the cache being affected.

    I'm pretty happy? Indifferent? Angry? Someone might have seen sent messages and my 5th least used email address. But I'm quite looking forward to getting email spam again, after 10years without it on any of my email accounts. So thanks for the present EG, although I do love the “random” word in the email. But are you sure it isn't deterministic?
