I have to say that it is the first question I am trying to import since I merged my Dilaton SE User account into Dilaton. Not sure if this bug has something to do with this ...

I see that the question is imported after all ...
Do these error messages somehow replace the creation of new users, if the emails to not match with the emails of already existing users?

Sorry, the bug was me :-(  I did not switch off my debug output. The import should be correct and not affected by this output. Have switched off now.

@polarkernel Actually I had noticed this before and thought that this was a feature not a bug. I liked it because it told me when existing users were recreated.

Huh, why have you hidden this?

I have hidden it because I thought my question was stupid after reading the comments ...

Do you think we should ask Polarkernal to leave the output coming as a feature to see the new users that get created? I did not think about it that way, but it may help in finding users that should potentially get merged for example...?

Now that I know what is up with this, I would be ok with keeping it too ;-)
