Greetings. I have recently merged two databases for my forum. I have not done so with the script, but rather manually by making queries to the DBs.

Well, usually the users will be more careful then and also they will know how to contact the Admin in case they boob with e-mail etc. Anyway, much thanks for the tip re...
