I'm Zelinea, a member of the welcoming committee. That means I'm here to help you with anything you need! I'm glad you posted in the Introductions thread - it helps you connect with old friends, and lets those who don't know get to know a little more about you. It also gets you closer to the 25 posts you need to apply for citizenship - but I know you're working on getting reinstated. Hope it all goes well! I recommend reading all the stickied posts on the forums, and maybe take a look through the Membership Manual if you want to see what has changed, or even just to get a little refresher. If you have any questions, leave me a visitor message!
Thank you for reaching out to me. As I mentioned, you should contact Sa' so she could see about granting you your previous permissions - the access to the SM forums, to the Yellow Halls, basically just to return your account back to its previous state before you left.
Now, the problem is that I'm not sure how long you've been away - I think you've been cleaned up in one of the previous Membership Clean-ups, in which case it might be a bit more difficult to get you back, but Sa' will be able to give you more technical information. I will text her to inform her of your incoming email so as to get right on it asap. Hopefully, you will not have to start over.
Personally, I'd love to have you back! Yellow could use our old Aes Sedai. Here is your Library page in case you want to use your old avatar.
I'm here if you need anything else; I'm sorry I can't be of more help, but I'll do my best.
