Are there any rules regarding usernames?

I don't believe I've ever seen any rules that apply to usernames. Are there any?

The general consensus is as long as it's not "inappropriate" (word choice, very important), any username is cool to use. You planning to change yours?

I think Buzz is also asking about the waiting period between name changes.
In that case you have to cycle through 5 name changes nd you have to wait (at think it is a day or so) before you can reuse a name.

But it seems like you you can cycle through names as many times as you want to in a day. Do note, however, that doing so is considered to be impolite/in bad taste.
