I do sympathise mind you but the shoe is on the other foot for me. My character has been converted each edition, starting out as a human rogue (scout) dual classed with wizard (starting at level 0) turned shadow mage in 2e and converted each edition. Currently she is a swashbuckler, tome warlock, shadow sorcerer and is fun to play even if she lacks oomph. Her thunder was stolen somewhat when a new warlock character came in, min/maxed, cherry picking many of the same abilities that she had so that he does everything better. But because my character stats were designed to meet the 2e rules, she is highly intelligent (not now needed) and her charisma and dexterity are mediocre. At least she has personality.
