    So what's your guys' feelings on using your real name/photo as a UN. I never put any thought in it until this morning, kinda opened my eyes a bit and realized not very many people do on BHW .

    Opinions?

    Thread moved to the BlackHat Lounge, and to answer your question, it is never a good idea to use your real name and photo on forums of any kind.

    Unfortunately, you can only get your username changed if you are a Premium member or a Jr. VIP.

    Actually, it is not usually possible to have your user name changed unless you are a Jr. VIP. However, you are welcome to contact Apricot and explain your situation. I cannot guarantee that she will comply with your wish though.

    Good Luck! :)
