Question Where have all my Bits gone?

Hi there admins/moderators,

I've just found that all my bits have vanished... both Savings and Checking accounts are showing '0' as the balance. I initially thought it was nefarious carry-on to blame but I can't see any evidence of a transfer out. Then I figured that bits had been decommissioned but can't see any indication of that in the forums. Now I'm assuming it's some kind of glitch.

The last thing I did with them was to move a bunch of bits into Savings some time ago (a bunch of months back).

Any one know what the story is here?

Cheers,
Smiling Dragon

I look forward to you becoming more active again. You have been missed.

Once you get some bits again, if you go to your banking page you'll see something like:
Quote:
Kindly note that Bits are based on forum activity so after six months of inactivity, your Bits will be reclaimed by the Central Bits Bank. Make sure you are active (post) at least once in six months to keep your forum activity Bits.
You made two posts about an hour ago. But before those two posts, your next most recent post was on December 8, 2014. So your bits would have been reclaimed by the bank around June 8, 2015.

Hi Smiling Dragon,

Know how it feels, I took a sabbatical and came back to find out that I was a "Bitless Vagrant".
