    Hi, sorry for asking, but I would like to change my BHW username, because I use this username also for business related work and my posts on BHW are showing up in google search results.

    Is it possible to change the username while keeping this account or do I need to create a new BHW account? Can any admin help me with this?

    you can pm a mod or admin and request them to change it. If the reason is valid, they will do it for sure. But, by yourself, i think you can't change it though.

    Its all up to the admin if he wants his name changed.

    i think it does not have any thing to do with the donor.
    if the reason is acceptable admins will help you out.

    That is not true. Only an Administrator can do that, and
    you need to have a very good reason for wanting to
    change it.

    With your postcount I think ditching this account and creating another is your best option.
    It would be appropriate to PM an admin to notify them you have done this to prevent the
    selling of aged accounts.
    A financial incentive may improve your chances if you wish the already overworked admin to
    delete all your previous 34 posts in 3 & 1/2 years but that would never remove them from googles cache.
