Default Points, Level & Activity... Oh, my!

What exactly do the points, level, and activity mean by someone's name? How do they relate to the person's forum activity prior to the P2P's update?

Sure. First thing, yes, all of your stats were imported from the old forum.
The "points" here combines scores for posts, replies, "thanks" from other users, and so-on into an aggregate score. Infractions subtract points.
The levels are arbitrary point rankings.
Activity is a 30 day rolling measure. It shows a % score for how active a user is relative to the whole p2p user base in the last 90 days. A high % (90% for example) would mean that you are a more active poster than 90% of users who have been active in the last 30 days.
