    No, with the exception of having a really serious reason.

    Awwwwwwwww what a pity, ever think of bringing that in? I'm guessing it would be hard to set up.

    I don't think that's hard to setup... It just does not make sense... any scammer could go on and change their username to stay undercover or something like that.

    It's nothing hard..

    A few forums like DP allow users to change their username for a fee but not without publicly listing all your old usernames and record on your profile just in case a member plays a fast one..

    users have a number assigned to them i think, the name change could just change the screen name and you could only change it once a year,
    how about that?

    Even if you have a number assigned what other users see is your name. I don't think it makes sense to flush how people know you (unless you're trying to hide something), maybe some people have good reasons though...

    just think 'ivanfitzy' is a bit bland... and they could bring rep back showing that you are respected and they could do what john1444 said with the whole post your old usernames stuff

    If Op wants to change his username he should make a new account and ask MOD's to suspend this one. I guess this is the only way.

    I will suggest, You close you account. and before closing account, send Mods an email or Pm that you want to close your account from BHW and re-open with new Name. May be they can help. But I don't think there is any Option.

    contact mods and wait, they might just agree if its for a genuine reason, but keep in mind they've already 1000 things to deal with so it might not really get priority/response.

    Its Impossible. You Want Change Your Username Without Permission Of Mod, And Mod Never Give You Permission.
