    Hello forum,
    In short: It looks lost my coins received in airdrop.

    https://mainnet.decred.org/address/Dsd9kaCxJvwYAHGbRv3zY3PRMffGhMsMJH4

    Full story:
    After receiving coins in the airdop last year i purchased few tickets and however it looks my decred coins never came back from the ticketing process.
    After putting on ticketing i went offline due to my engagements. Documentation mentions that tickets which are unable to vote will be reverted back max after 130 days.
    However i see no coins in the wallet. i restored my wallet few days back from encrypted storage after almost a year.

    Can someone explain what happened in my case. How can i get my coins back. Is there a mechanism to cancel/recall my tickets.

    Try doing a fresh install with v1.05 and recreate from seed. Usually your expired tickets etc magically show up.
    This is the simplest thing to do as you are probably using an "ancient" version from 2006 that occasionally required some extra love and care.

    Oh! And also the recent hardfork requires a v1.0.5 to work anyway!

    Yes, as Nimrod suggested use the latest wallet and restore from seed. Your coins are likely safe and would not have been returned to the original address that you posted anyhow. They will be in another address controlled by your seed.

    Assuming you have the right seed this is getting a bit more complicated.
    I would like someone else to comment on this as well but I have a recollection the command "rebroadcastmissed" might(!) do the trick.
    I think you also have to have you wallet unlocked for certain commands to work... again someone else probably has a better answer?
