XF 1.2 Import fails (vbulletin 4)

I started importing vbulletin4, and get an error on one user:

The following users could not be imported due to errors.

  • Invalid username:
    Commas are not allowed in user names.

At this point the only option is "Import Users" button which does nothing. There is no option to skip this user and continue.

So what do I do now?

Answered with this in your ticket:
There should be a text box with the username in it right after "invalid username". You can change the username to resolve the issue with the username -- it's generally a comma issue, but I it theoretically could be something else. What's the username shown?
