    in XF are A = a and ö = o etc.
    But this is wrong username Barbel is not the same user name Bärbel!
    Nevertheless, says XF Username Bärbel existed (Barbel)

    How can I make it clear that is not the same.

    This is how MySQL's collations work. It is accent insensitive. There is no way around it.

    I can set the Field Type latin1_general_ci for all username fields is this ok?

    We cannot support or recommend anything like that.

    But this can not be true!
    It's just the way the Ä = A, and a user should have the possibility, regardless of an existing user "Bärbel" call to "Barbel"!

    Here must be found a solution!
    Am I the first to this auffält or was it the other just do not care!
    Because problems is indeed very extensive
