    It’s a club penguin site and that is why I am not surprised.

    Exactly which username account registered the underlying .wordpress.com site and purchased the upgrade for it?

    How many Admins do you have?

    Only one Admin per site is recommended but club penguin sites are notorious for having multiple admins who fight with each other and delete content and even sites. Another thing they are notorious for is being sucked into appointing Admins who are deliberately focused on site hijacking.

    re: hacked accounts and blogs

    If anyone is posting anything to your blog or removing anything from it, or changing anything in it, or if your blog has been deleted and you did not delete it, then it’s most likely that you have provided them with the ability to do so, either deliberately by adding them as official users, or by allowing them access to your login information, or by posting content that makes it easy for them to guess what your log-in information is.

    For you the question that needs to be answered is: Who, aside from me, has access to my login information?

    Go to your email program immediately and change the password to a very difficult one because that’s how many hackers gain access to blogs.

    Change your blog password to a very difficult one > http://en.support.wordpress.com/passwords/#change-your-password
    You can also reset your password via your Settings tab on the WordPress.com home page:
    http://wordpress.com/#!/settings/

    Use a secure, encrypted connection to connect to your Dashboard. Under Users → Personal Settings, check the box that says “Always use HTTPS when visiting administration pages, and click Save Changes.

    Use two step authentication http://en.support.wordpress.com/security/two-step-authentication/

    Run a security scan on your computer. See here to run a security scan http://geekflare.com/online-scan-website-security-vulnerabilities/

    Never leave your computer logged into your blog and walk away from it. Always log out properly.

    I was wondering if it was possible to restore posts or the site that were deleted.

    The answer to that is no Staff will not restore content. You may be able to use Googles cached docs to copy paste content into new posts and pages. You may be able to use Internet Archives Wayback Machine to do the same.

    P.S. Staff have records of who did what under which username and login information and when they did it. This thread with modlook for a Staff follow-up. Please subscribe to it so you are notified when they respond. To subscribe look in the sidebar of this thread, find the subscribe to topics link and click it. Note that there is a backlog and be patient while waiting.

    Edit: The answer to that is no, Staff will not restore deleted content or deleted sites.

    Hi there,

    The site was deleted by someone you added as an admin. Adding someone as an admin gives them the ability to delete the site, so by adding them as an admin you effectively gave them permission to delete the site. If you didn’t want them to have that ability you should have invited them as an author or editor instead.

    We do not restore site backups if an authorised user on the site made changes to the site, and it’s not possible to restore a site that has been deleted completely.
