Hoi Oliver

I'm willing to help as volunteer as much as possible.
I do this because the site I maintain is for a nonprofit organization for traditional folkmusic.
So saying this the time A can spent is based on time is left on a day.
For my day job I have experience with C, C++, and C# And my thinking about code is from before the "object-base style"

I'm willing to make a "patch" but it would be my first, so any guide is welkom.
Furthermore I'm not yet sure if the change I made is the real the solution.(it is more a workaround to avoid the "if" around line 177).
I will investigate the real "why" the conversion in charset result in a empty string.
As soon as I find out why, I will post the solution and place the bug in the buglist.

I know from historical reason that in our database not all the data is utf8 so I'm caution to update the typo3 core.
I have still to make a conversion if I update the typo3 core to a higher version on some moment.

I like to mention that we are glad that there is a seminar plug in, thanks for that.

In the meantime: 
Can you give me any hint how I can set in the FE registration process the field Account_number mandatory ?

Thank for any help

This might be a bug. Could you please report it in the bug tracker
<https://bugs.oliverklee.com/> (and, even better, provide a patch)?

Some background information: Generally, all data should be UTF-8. The
output of the CSV export can be configured to use a different encoding.
In this case, the default is ISO8859-15 because AFAIK Microsoft Excel
has trouble opening UTF-8 CSV files.
