I haven't seen the same issue anywhere here, but my developer has started the migration about 1 week ago and it's currently still running.  It's at 56% and goes up maybe 4% each day.  Is there anything we could be missing here or can try to make this happen.  This is an issue holding us back from going live with a website.  Please help!

thanks!

Please provide your forum stat information, how many users, topics and posts you're trying to migrate?

@martin  see attached screen shot.  It's a high number it looks like.  They had an issue with spam for a bit.  Will it also be grabbing all of that as well?

You should remove those users. I think 160,000 of 170,000 users are spammers. Now wpForo creates profiles for all those. I'm sorry, but you have to wait if you're not going to remove those.

ok.  thanks for that info.  I assume we would have to stop the migration to start deleting all those user before we migrate again if we want the process to go faster.  I attached the actual screen shot of users.  134,000 pending is most likely spammers.  but again, do we take the chance in stopping to delete all of them and then end up waiting again....

Do you have knowledge or can you also point me in the right direction:  Once this migration is done from BBPress to WpForo, we have a new website built on a development account  on another host.  We are going to transfer WP site back to our current host to go live, but want to be sure we don't lose any of the forum users and posts that we migrated.  The plan is to copy this forum onto our new site.  (domain is the same)   Is there an process in place to make sure this all will work on the new site build as well?  Hopefully that makes sense.
