I have an old Discourse PG dump - the header lines are:
– Dumped from database version 9.3.5
– Dumped by pg_dump version 9.3.5

This was a failed exercise in setting up a “Life Extension, Science and Technology Party” (LESTp) that was started in 2014 - nominally in time for the Australian Federal Election in 2016. However the health of both of my parent’s immediately took a turn for the worst and I could never put any serious effort into the project.
Now, I have created a new Discourse installation for ALL of my projects, and, for historical posterity reasons I would like to recover the info from the old LESTp Discourse DB and put it in a new LESTp category in the new Discourse. There were only 15 users, 6 post categories and 61 posts but is there a way, say, of adding 100 to the old user IDs and importing all of the posts into the new, single, Discourse LESTp category? I would like to preserve all of the dates, times and users on the posts.
