Easiest way to restore user registration dates after migration from vBulletin?


I’ve migrated topics, posts and users from vBulletin, but not their registration dates and reputation points.

Since my forum users want me to restore their original registration dates, i was wondering what would be the easiest way to do this? I dont need to do it for all users, but rather manually per user request. Can it be done via admin or i need to do it inside the database? If i just change the dates, is there a possibility that something will get broken?

If possible, i would also like to convert their vBulletin reputation points into Discourse “Likes”.

Please advice.

Since it’s only a feature that might be useful after an import, it’s not available via the admin interface. You will have to change the registration dates via the rails console or database. It should be pretty safe to change these dates :wink:

I don’t know how the reputation works in vBulletin, but if it’s not associated to a post/topic, then you’re out of luck unfortunately :frowning:
