I remeber him saying it, that you can only change it once every six months, or just once, period.

I like the idea of groups. But it would be nice if the person who owns it are given powers over it. And he/she can give other people power too! But the restrictions of usernames could be like you can change it only thrice or only 5 times. Otherwise it will be too confusing to track a user.

Actually for anyone that bothered to follow the other thread ...

We're looking at allowing name changes every 30 days, but during that 30 day period, your profile will show other users what your username used to be, and no other user can take that old name until your 30-day waiting period ends.

We're debating whether to make a 'lottery' system at some point for expiring usernames. You'd get to pick one username on the list that you want as your own new name, and if you get randomly selected, you'll get that new name, with the same restrictions such as not changing your name for 30 more days, your old name is reserved for 30 days too, etc.

We'll likely put heavy restrictions on what it will take to unlock this as a feature on the site for users, and won't be available when AG3 launches... it'll be something we build after we launch the site.
