I want to change my password and i don't want people to think that i am a hacker (which will degrese my reputation)
should i say that i am the owner of my bitcoin wallet address (now) and then change the password and sign a message from the wallet address that i shared here ?
and what should i type in the signed message ?

You could go to meta on the signed staked address'es.   If you have one staked there write after you change it write a message that can be verified by staked address.

But if you don't have one staked it would not prove much if you staked today and changed password today.

Have you staked your address in this thread? https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=996318.0

People won't mind a password change for your account in particular. You have literally no trust and you are a Jr. Member.
There's no need for you to post a signed message stating you changed your password.
If you control the address posted before your password change, people will have the same perception of you.

There's no way anyone would even know you changed your password, why the concern?  People change passwords all the time, it's a common security practice.

False. https://bitcointalk.org/seclog.php
In addition, admins have access to even more information on how it was done.

Its a ~60 day old Jr. account, I dont think anyone will shit their pants if you changed your password.

If it helps you:

#1 stake your address in the above mentioned thread
#2 change your password
#3 sign a message with the address from #1 say that you changed your password (include the date)

repeat #2 and #3 as needed.

I'll quote you for reference. But you are being overly cautious. Some people would view this as spam.

Staking a address will pay off in the long run though.  If he ever loses account it will speed up time on getting it back chances are.

But you have a point likely OP will send money first on any trade with or without a password warning.  But I think hes on the right route being over cautious good for down the road.
