I seem to be the only one posting here…
So, right when I am about to launch my new discourse forum, we discovered a very strange issue! I’m stumped with this issue, I’m hoping someone here can shed light on it…
Case: I have imported 2 databases into discourse from phpbb3. First one is an archive, which is basically the current forum we had cut in two 15 years ago and then frozen. The other half of the forum stayed active and grew. My hope was that the importer would merge them on import, which it did!
But now I discovered a case of one user, and I need to know whether this is only one case, or if it has impacted others, and then how to be able to search for other cases.
The user had created two accounts. Both on the current forum. Let’s say old account was named OldName and new is NewName.
On the imported discourse, there are now two users. One called OldName and the one that should have been NewName is renamed to OldName1 Also, the posts of OldName have been merged into OldName1.
I have no clue why this only happened to this user since there are other users with double accounts and they don’t seem to be affected by this.
Does anyone know what might have happened here?
Is there a way to search for other cases?
