Zero was originally intended to be a group for marketers on Hack Forums; however, the group ended up going in a different direction becoming a lounge group solely. Zero wanted to disrupt all the drama and fighting in the lounge and attempted to make Hack Forums a friendly, funnier community to be a part of. Zero members were known to be a tightly knit community, presenting themselves with a family-like aura. Zero was a very laid back group with little to no rules, as everyone within the group was chilled and relaxed. Zero had basic requirements; however, members were chosen very carefully as you needed to be a particular type of person and have a proper understanding of what Zero was all about.
Zero was originally Infamous before Arzel purchased the group for an undisclosed figure. On the 2nd of September, 2014, Arzel announced Zero and began public recruitment. In May 2015, Zero was purchased for a record amount of $11,000 USD by Tommy, making Zero the most expensive usergroup in Hack Forums history.
