When i started my XF site, i started afresh. Our previous site was on VB 3.8, however we made the decision at the time to start clean and leave all the crap quality posts behind etc.
Now a couple of years on, Im just wondering if i can import the old Vbulletin database into a new forum section into my site called archive or named something similar. Will that work fine?
Also what about users? I really dont want to create recreate the old vbulletin users again as some of them have re-registered on our xf site with perhaps a different username/ email address etc. If i import the data, can i forgo the creation of users, and dump all the threads into one forum section? Any ideas?
Main reason for importing the old data is - that the data is from 2003 so would be quite nice to go through and see the past of the site, and also for content SEO wise. Ideally i will go through the database and clean it up before import too to remove low quality threads.
