hi
i am using invision power board and poteto wacintaki bbs board, and i was wondering is it simple to take things like this that have a member database and easily merge the user databases? or is this really messy?
is it even perhaps possible to have the two linked so that if you make an account on the forums and you'll also have an account on the bbs board as well?
they are on two seperate databases, but they seem to have similar user/pass things. i am really new to this, so sorry if this is really easy or something.

That really depends on how flexible the software is... if you can point one to the other, then yes.  Otherwise, you get to play very annoying duplication games.
Seriously... if people don't start reading this before posting, I'm going to consider not answering at all.
