Hello there,

There are two users in vBulletin

Example:
1. BOZBEYİ ID=1
2. bozbeyi ID=2

But XenForo only surpasses the BOZBEYİ user. How do I fix this problem?

You need someone who can help you manually migrate these users....
... or do something prior to using XenForo importer: Detect same usernames and rename as XXX1 & XXX2... .
This process has to be made automatically through specially-prepared scripts.

We have a unique constraint on usernames, so if the names are considered equivalent by MySQL then the accounts will either be merged or one will be renamed, based on the import settings you select. MySQL is (almost always) accent insensitive, so two values that differ only by accents will generally be considered equivalent.

So this is essentially expected. You likely don't want to merge users with duplicate names in your situation (the duplicate will be automatically renamed).
