Okay. I haven't read all the posts, so I'm not sure if this has been discussed yet. But... With AG3 will I be able to take this guy's username? Because it looks like he hasn't been, and won't be, using his account any time soon. And it'd be awesome if I could have my username without the "0"

He would probably need to be perma'd before you took his username. And just because he has no AP, doesn't mean he's not on. A lot of people just use membership to save.

This seems like a good idea. I've seen it happen before, and it worked very well actually, but luckily I have the username I want :)

You won't be able to take the user names of people who have been banned.

Would we be able to change it multiple times? If so, how will our friends know its us?
It seems to me that implimenting with the 30 day name reserve a section that says "previously known as" and lists the last name you were using, would seem like a good idea.

No credit to me i got the idea off of an article I read on the Runescape Forums.

If what they said before is still true then it'll be available every two-three months or so.
If so, how will our friends know its us?

I'd expect them to show your previous username somewhere on your profile.

Or maybe there won't be the "Change username" feature.
I think is the most possible answer, i you don't think so say your opinion
