    Question Merge data from older forum account into my current account

    Hi,

    Is this function possible on the version of vBulletin that ubuntuforums.org runs?

    https://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/main/merge_users

    I'm in the position where I'd like to merge the "data" (posts, threads, calendar events, and private messages) from the "source user" (my old account, that I forgot I had) into the "destination user" (the one I'm using now... Lantizia).

    Thanks

    Possible? Theoretically, yes. Do we do it? No.

    We tried the merge utility a few years ago, and the results were more than unsatisfactory. The Forum Council made a policy decision not to attempt to merge accounts then. Sorry.
