    I'm importing from vBulletin 3.8, the importer properly migrates deleted threads/posts but the deletion reason is gone! The importer should also migrate the deletion reason, that's a must imho.

    I actually think this is a bug more than a suggestion. I was thinking that it was a problem with the cli importer but now I have tested with the web importer and it's the same. For moderation purposes it's critical to keep the deletion reason for threads/posts. I can't believe you're ignoring this data during the import.

    In general, importing additional things would probably be classed under suggestions. The warning thing imported but didn't write the XF data structure correctly.

    But deletion reason for threads/posts is critical information for moderation purposes. At least to me this is a showstopper to continue with the migration. I really hope you can take this suggestion in the near future. Thanks.
