After migrating from Vanilla all users display a random post in their '"about me" section

Actual post

As you can see, after migration the “about me” section has been filled with a post.

Did we see this in our Vanilla migrations @zogstrip?


(Régis Hanol) #3

Well, it’s not random, it’s specifically the last activity recorded on vanilla


(Jeff Atwood) #4

Still, why would that be entered as their ‘About Me’?


(Régis Hanol) #5

That’s what the customer wanted to use when I built the importer. Might make that an option as it seems to be a weird default.


(Jeff Atwood) #6

Yes very much a weird default! :confounded:


(Ricardo Viteri) #7

Hi guys, please change it… It’s super weird.

Cheers,

Ricardo

The new default is to use the discovery_text field of the users table as user’s bio.
