Hi,

Is there a chance that this module (with combination with another one/more) can help transliterate usernames before they are in the database?

This is just a matter of implementing three lines of code in a custom module, by using hook_user_presave() and the transliteration_get() function.

I do not agree that writing custom module is easier than have it already included.

Every project has at least one generic custom module, so this would just mean putting this code inside it. Besides, if you transliterate a username, how is that person supposed to log in?

I really don't see the value in having this functionality in the transliteration module.

well, I had some problems with the site where users intentionally or not selected their usernames with national characters, like: ĄČĘĖĮŠŲŽ

Those are still valid usernames and Drupal supports them just fine as proven by your site.. May I ask why you wanted to transliterate them in the first place? :)

I cannot remember exactly, as that project (with actual issue) is suspended, but may be smth SEO or integration with another modules, like PrivMsg problem.
Probably I should write more background into issues which may stay for longer time unaswered.
