Old forum account does not link despite preferred email in ubuntu one being the same

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I logged into to Ubuntu one making sure the preferred email is the same as instructed but my forum account (which i had for many years) is gone, all posts are not linked etc. Is there a way to restore it? Is it not immediate? should i be patient? Any help appreciated - I really want my old forum account back. Harel (Hardware)
