    Thanks for the answer . I migth try to push back the join date myself using SQL with inner joins on email. It looks like phpbb2 (where my backup comes from) uses the same format as vbulletin to store the join date.

    Not sure I understand what you mean by 'not pushed back. I don't believe there is a joindate from phpBB that is imported.

    Download Impex from the Members Area. Then follow the online Impex import instructions here:

    All depends on what your old system is.

    During the user module of most systems when performing the import you have the option to merge on email address, ImpEx then automatically merges the users.
