tl;dr can I suppress the system response to community flags during a migration?
Hi, I’ve written a migrator for MVC Forum which has community flags (up and downvote). I wanted to maintain our downvotes as well as our upvotes but in migrating the downvotes (as inappropriate in Discourse), the system user will post “Topic automatically closed/reopened” messages.
This isn’t a problem per se but it has meant that all of the system reopened posts appear as the latest posts which messes the chronological order.
Any ideas how I can suppress the system interventions? Or can I write a script to reset the latest post date to ignore system messages?
