What happens to social groups when importing from vB 3.8?

    I was looking over Paul M's vB 4 importer and noticed one of its extra features was the import of vBulletin's Social Groups. How does the vB 3.8 -> XF importer handle them? Are they simply left behind? What about user's albums?

    When I last ran the importer (several months ago), these were the steps.
    I don't think that has changed, although I will need to double check by running a test import.

    Anything which isn't listed isn't imported.
     
  3. membergroups, visitor messages, galleries, and group discussions. It all of that is going to be lost, the only think I will miss would be membergroups and their content.

    I have about 200 membergroups and they are kind of active, so I'd appreciate a workaround.

    I thought "visitor messages" were covered under the "profile comments"?

  5. uh. you're right.

    Let say only membergroups and their content would be misses.

    Hmmm it seems prefixes and tags too *frown*
