Sure, it's important to be flexible. :-)
> Maybe I should have asked if you've already made a decision
No, I think I might wait until I'm ready to make some other changes to the name-changing process.
> I think it was Dinah who once talked about making a separate board for posters to post anonymous questions. If someone wanted to do that now, let's say me, could I work it out through name changes without making it obvious to other posters that it was me? For example, I might post on Admin using my new ID that I've changed my name to Not Finished Yet. Then, I could go post on Social as Not Finished Yet that I really love Barry Manilow and I'm wondering if anyone else does. No one would know that I'm really All Done, who loves Barry Manilow. Then, once I've received responses and replied on that thread, I could come back to Admin as Not Finished Yet and say that I'm changing my posting name back to my old posting name without indicating what that name was.
> Would it be okay to do that? I know that it just adds another reason against the cap on name changes, though.
It would be OK to do that. Except that the 2nd post here should be by the old name. :-)
