All is done, for the initial migrations except for "vb thanks" to "discourse likes".

(of course the discourse site is behind the vb site as far as the most recent posts....)

It's looking good, but I would like to get the "vb thanks" to "discourse likes" working.

Have been debugging ruby code this morning for 2 to 3 hours (more like 3) to migrate "thanks" to "likes" and I'm getting close.

I am hopeful I this get this script done today, and have a working script to transfer all our vb3 thanks plugin "thanks" to discourse "likes".....

This migration has been a task "not for the faint of heart" and there is no doubt anyone who tries this must have a lot of technical skills.

Just now, for example, I debugged a lot of ruby code were I was getting "trying to update DB errors, unique" and searched the code in ruby, found the tables and found the unique index. I deleted the "unique index" which allowed the process to move forward and then after it was complete, I could see the error in the results and was about to go back and make the change to the original DB user mappings.

root@discourse1-app:/var/www/discourse# rake posts:delete_all_likes   
    65028 / 65028 (100.0%)
65028 likes deleted!

Sometimes you have to break something to fix it.

I started this "feasibility study" caper around a week ago, and I'm getting close to finishing (the entire migration) ; that's not bad for a vB3 migration where the folks at meta discourse gave me the serious "get out of here" cold shoulder when they found out I was migrating a vB3 forum to discourse.

I think there may be some counters (like total likes given to a user) which have not updated in the migration; but maybe they will update based on an internal cron. If not, I can easily write code to update the users profile "likes" counter(s).
