how to import the bans from my old forum to 2.8?

In the conversion I have lost all the data of banned users. I see no ban rules.

Have they been lost or merely stored elsewhere?

I have an extensive banlist that has been grown over 13 years with ip's / email adresses etc all of users/spammers etc. I rather not try to find that all back or reset that manually if possible?

is this a feature or a bug of the converter?

    Conversion from what? You'll need to give a little bit more context here.

    Im sorry -

    my old forum- phpbb 2.x.

    i have converted it to vanilla with the converter. In that conversion it seems it has not brought over the ban data.

    so my question is wether this is a feature of the converter or if its there but in another place? There are no ban rules visible.

    thank you once again! :)

    Why not try creating a rule, and then seeing where that gets stored in the DB?

    Then you'd know the structure, and be able to compare it to your old DB table.
