    Ignoring the fact that the forum members here would not recognise you by a different username, if given the option, would you change your username on Black Hat World?

    Yes, I most certainly would. I'd change it to something related to my avatar.

    My username is in German (no, I don't speak German), although the pronunciation is not the reason I would change my username. :)

    I don't know. There are some people on here with really cool names that I'd like to steal. Like netmoney1. IF I could steal anyones name it would probably be that.

    I would like to change it to only Wizard, I want to remove the numbers.
    I send Pm to few of the mods and admins, but no one has replied.

    I know few of the users here that have successfully changed there usernames.

    I've always liked your username "BreaknBrix" with the avatar of Miley Cyrus on a wrecking ball. :D
    You usually have to have a good reason to change your username on this forum (e.g., your username is your real name and it's causing issues). Even then, the moderators are more likely to consider a respected members request before anyone else's (but by the time you're a "respected member" most people know you by either your avatar or your username, so it's not always worth it).
