Xch4ng3 signed up for Hack Forums on June 3, 2009. He found about the site due to his interests in reverse engineering and eventually he saw a link to the site through another forum. Since joining, Xch4ng3 has always "tried to help out as many members as possible" and his efforts showed as he was promoted to Staff in 2010.
In December 2010, Xch4ng3 opened an e-currency exchange service which ran until January 2011. He decided to close his service after the dispute thread made by PikeUE.
He stepped down from Staff in February 2011. In April, he was reinstated. Xch4ng3 has remained as Staff until 2013, when he became an administrator.
Xch4ng3 has said that the member who has had the biggest impact on him has been Omniscient himself. He explained why:
Without sounding like ass-kissing, probably Omniscient. Not because he's the administrator here but because just of the way he works. Most people would have given up after the second time their forum got hacked or knocked offline yet he still somehow keeps us up and deals with his daily workload. iBruteforce was another one. He's a veteran so not much more needs to be said.
