XF 1.5 4000+ Admins After Import

We just did an import from IPB 3.4 and somehow over 4000+ users were added as admins. How can we mass remove these?

Are they listed as Admins under Admin CP > Users > Administrators? Or is it just a group membership thing?

There's not really a way to reverse that.

Finding out why these got converted as admins, preventing that and doing the import again is really the only solution.

Why is it so complicated? Why is it showing them in the list if they don't have any power? I've checked and they aren't flagged as is_admin nor are they in any adminstrative usergroups.

Just empty the xf_admin table then. But it's still concerning they got imported like that in the first place.

Everything else looks good. I've dug through anything and everything before I get rid of everything but our actual admins in xf_admin. No idea what went wrong with that but it was the only issue of the import.
