Importing members

Hey there, quick question.

I want to import a list of members from Wordpress to IPB. 

The list has their username and email address that they registered to my Wordpress site.

What happens if there are duplicate usernames/email addresses? What does IPB do? Does it not add them, change their username? Just curious what happens before I pull the trigger.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

If the email address already exist then the Wordpress and IPS users will be merged into one account.

If the username already exist, then a timestamp will be appended at the end of the Wordpress username.

If the emails merge, but there are two different usernames for the same email address, which does it use?

Interesting, thank you! From there they could always go in and change their username.
