          You can associate users so that they are combined or tell ImpEx to do it automatically based on email address.

                I tried to use impex to merge 2 VB forums together but that doesnt work right, all threads and posts from the imported forum will overwrite the ones that already exist.

                  With all due respect, Impex does not do that. Somethign else happened.

                    The only way that could have happened is if you already did an import, and had not followed all of the after the import steps that impex requires you to do.
