Specifics of what extension does

by Joe-mama » Sun Apr 26, 2015 7:16 pm

Hi,
I was looking to see exactly what this ext does. Here are the questions in my head:

Ok, this merges two users. Does it delete user A and reassigns A's posts to user B?

or... Once merged A and B are still active but you can manage both from one login?

Are you still able to post as either of the original users?

My reason for interest in this is that I have a D&D forum where we make everyone register with their character name. In the event someone has multiple characters they have to register multiple times and it would be nice to have a quick way of logging in once and still manage several user/character accounts at once.

Regards,
Joe-Mama

Old user is deleted, new user can still post and all posts, etc. from old user are re-assigned to new user.

And if the desired is the newest member to be deleted and the oldest user to take all topics and posts?
