The next issue is that I get a 404 for new users on their profile pictures.
Turns out that the user records are there! I didn’t know that disqus gave me the emails!
Should I manually activate all the users? Is there a way to do this more easily than clicking on each user?
Would it makes sense to modify the thor script to offer an option for creating users that are active? I’m guessing the activation is to confirm email addresses, and since the emails come from disqus, then the emails are valid.
It also turns out that the script emails all those new users asking them activate, which might be confusing to those folks!
@sam, @eviltrout, how did you handle this for your blogs?
