Group History

Before the group had come to be known as Debug, it was previously named Phoenix. A user group owned and managed by the user Tibit. After a disagreement between Omniscient and Tibit, Tibit opted to have his account closed and his group, Phoenix, sold. The auction of Phoenix was managed by Omniscient and was sold strictly for BTC only, a crypto currency.

After the auction process had ended, the user 'Porygon was noted to be the winner of this auction with an outstanding bid of 31.5 BTC. It was after this auction that Debug came to be. It is, however, noted that while Debug does share some of it's history with Phoenix, if only in how it was bought, the it is an entirely different group, with different focuses and goals.

Debug was formally founded on February 26, 2015. Debug has noted that it's goal or one of, is to teach the members of Hack Forums how to program or become fluent enough in a programming language to endeavor their own path of choosing.

Goal or Manifesto

If debugging is the process of removing bugs, then programming must be the process of putting them in.
