Username decapitalized on the wiki

I was gonna make myself a user: page in the forum but I was kinda confused when I went to wiki/User:Seirin-Blu and it didn't exist. I then think "I must be stupid and have forgot to capitalize my username when signing up", but I go back to the forum and behold the B is capitalized.

Does anyone know why this is?

On Wikimedia (the wiki software, and perhaps on other wiki software as well) the name of User pages (it may apply to other pages as well, but I can't confirm that) only the first letter can be capital.

I have no idea if that's a setting that can be changed in the administration or if it requires changing the actual code to allow capitalization of the other letters.
