As our description says, you must learn before you can teach. And Archive hopes to do just that for the community; by supporting and teaching other members of Hack Forums. Although we aren't focusing on any specific niche, our goal is to better the community as a whole.
The archive was a class, and each member had to be enrolled in a course. Aside from the class Archive offered private discussions (lounges, debates, discussions of the week), and had giveaways/contests in hopes to better the community. Achieve hosted contests in hope to help the community. An example of such contest would be a $200/$100/$75 awards for 3 members. To enter, you had to have 2FA/Gauth enabled on your account to enter and it had to stay enabled when you were drawn to be eligible.
Tommy bought the group known as Zero in May 2015 from Syrah. Archive's purpose is to provide quality resources for the users of Hack Forums and to educate its members on using the forum, from understanding forum policies, general knowledge, history, terminology, moderation scenarios, and much more. On August 7, 2015, Archive was deleted and Tommy was closed due to a claim by Connected that Tommy was arrested. The group was added back shortly after and Tommy's account was reopened. Connected, the member who made the claim was rep killed and his account closed.
The group is sold to Ninetales.
