I found this account while clearing out my old saved logins in Firefox; it was the only one that was active.

However, there's PMs in the inbox clearly stating that the account was made read-only at some point. Yet when I signed into it the other day, it was level 13.

Do read-only accounts get promoted to normal ones after a certain amount of time, or was there a one-off change, or is this likely a glitch, or...?
Nope. I'm totally not the white ninja. You're confusing me with someone else.

For the record, I definitely wouldn't've requested a review of the account (and there's no PMs to suggest one ever took place - the newest PM is literally the one saying the account was set to read-only).

As far as I'm aware, admins only upgrade read-only accounts if a feedback ticket for an upgrade request is submitted. Perhaps you put in a ticket and forgot?

I thought that was the only case. But if I had submitted a ticket and forgotten, wouldn't there be PM evidence of that, though? Or in my feedback history? (Although I'm not entirely sure how to find the latter - I know the link to submit a new ticket, but not to check existing ones. If it's the same, then the history is blank. Of course, that might be because it's purged.)

I'd try logging into some other old read-only accounts to see, but I don't remember any usernames or emails (I have a fair idea of what the passwords would be).

It would show here, under the Your Feedback section: https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/feedback/

if it's blank then you didn't submit one, I don't think they purge as I have ones in my history from 2011 there still

Don't have a Your Feedback section at all. I checked the same page on my main where I have submitted a few just in case I wasn't looking in the right place, definitely haven't submitted any.

So, I take it mods aren't sure what's going on here.

Maybe @SBAllen can shed some light on this?
