Unhandled error when importing banned user


(Dan Dascalescu) #1

While running the MyBB importer to incrementally import the posts created since the last import before finally shutting down the MyBB forum, I got this error for a user I had banned in Discourse but hadn’t yet deleted from MyBB:

I do not think this is a big deal, it will just skip the user afaik

I don’t know if things have changed, but when we migrated a lot of older vBulletin threads the Banned members were not imported and their posts were assigned to “System”

There member names might still be visible if they were quoted or referred to elsewhere in the discussion, but IMHO the results were OK

Actually, it might crash the import script, waiting for you to fix it…

@dandv you should change the import_users method to do nothing (put return at the top).

Maybe the log I posted looked incomplete, but it does crash the import script; the user isn’t just skipped.
