A while ago, I had an account on DaniWeb.com, and I requested it be deleted. On that account, I had donated about $3-$4. I had also gained the OP Sponsor rank. Is it possible that I could get it back? I am able to prove the payments as they were made through PayPal.
Probably not -- you auto lose the badge when the period of your donation expires. For example if you donate $3 for one month and don't renew it the badge will only appear for the month of the donation. It's not permanent.
