Is it possible to "merge" two databases? Basically merge members from one IPB forum into another, without them having to re-register? I am thinking of taking over a community and moving their members over to my forum when I get it all set up. I just wanted to know if IPB does this. Wouldn't it cause User ID Conflicts?

I believe IPS does offer a paid merge service, although the specifics will need a staff member to answer for you :)

We do offer a merger service if you are interested. It's a pretty straightforward thing and is not too expensive if you want us to do it. Just email sales@invisionpower.com for a proper quote :)

Alright thank you.

Two more questions:
1) Will you have a demo / preview of IP.Nexus anytime soon? I have seen the video, but would like to play around with it myself for a few hours.
2) If I would like to move a forum from the root folder to a subdomain... (forums.mysite.com) Could this be the done with your merge service? Basically I am in the process of changing domains and such

1) More information will be available after the release of IP.Board 3.

2) You can do this already without the merger service. :) Our tech support can assist you if you submit a ticket. But yes, if you wished to do this at the time of the merger, then it could be done then.
