  • Duplicate usernames when importing from phpbb

    Im tying to convert a medium size board (200k posts) and Im having trouble with the user accounts. When it imports, a lot of them fail, and a lot of the users become duplicates, and about 30% of them have an "imported_" prefix. So naturally, there are more imported users, than actual users on the original board.

    After the import, member.php?u=ID doesnt even open for about 80% of the users. In IE it simply goes to a blank page, while in FF it gives an error about page compression or something like that (Firefox error, not vbb error).

    How can I fix this?

    Just did another import, some usernames were imported 3-4 times, consecutively. So userids differ by 1, yet all the other data is identical (except the salt).
