Re: can we change username to the ones getting banned or had a name change?
My guess is - banned: no (their posts are still here, their name is in the database so to speak), name change: yes, those names aren't used.
But I think it wouldn't be a smart idea to change your name to those names already used to avoid confusion, unless it's a "generic" name like a player's name or sth.
