Php3.0 > XF imports empty users


Well-known member
Hi all,

On my existing PHP 3.0 board, I had around 40 existing users, and around 500 deleted spam users. When php3.0 was converted to XF, the total number of users was 540, and all of the old deleted members were present.

Note that the users were deleted, not banned.

I think the importer takes erased users and converts them as active.

I wasn't aware of "soft deleted" users in phpBB. Can you send me your phpBB users table perhaps, and give me the name of an example deleted and active user?
