3p1c is Hack Forums' third upgrade group along with Ub3r and L33t. The idea originally started with the name "P0w3r", but it was later changed to "3p1c" because Omniscient thought it suited the other two better. 3p1c is a secondary group which means a user will not lose his or her L33t or Ub3r status when upgrading.
