Nope, once you delete it - it's gone. The only way to recover it is, if you have a backup of the database before you deleted the user or user(s).

Simple answer after Paul's answer, yes... but not without database edition... i suppose you have to wait for your Paid Request to be filled.

When running this query:

So in the UPDATE post SET userid='xxx' WHERE username='Old Name'

Does 'Old Name' equal guest? Cause all the deleted posts are listed under "guest"

no if you run that query and put guest as the old name

it will over right all usernames that are set to guest

old name would be for instace if you had a member called "tommy" and deleted him, you could create a new "tommy" member account and run the query so that all of the old "tommy" posts are shown as the new "tommy" account
