DU usernames rules

I'm considering renaming, so I've been wondering some things, like:

1) case sensitivity
2) space sensitivity
3) hyphen (etc) sensitivity
4) list of permissable characters?

MyName
My Name
My-Name
myname
Myname
myName
mYname

(etc)

Are these all considered unique DU usernames? My guess is they are, but does anyone know for certain?

1. Yes, those are all unique usernames

Case, space, and hyphen sensitivity make a difference.

Permissible characters are: letters, numbers, spaces, hyphens, underscores, and periods.

Nothing like an authoritative answer for a first reply!

3. I spelled my username wrong when I changed it.

I think the autocorrect on my tablet messed me up. It was supposed to be Hagbard Celine, not Haggard. Is there any way to correct it?

7. I can't find the link leading to

the place where I changed it. I guess it's unavailable to me now. Oh well, guess I'll just have to live with it.

4. When I joined, my first choice for a name was not available. After I joined I looked to see if

someone had that name, and they do but without a capital letter, which mine had? I didn't think anything of it until I saw this op.
