Factor8™ [1] first joined Hack Forums on September 27, 2009. He joined because he was searching for a place to spend some time and have more online activity. He also wanted to broaden his knowledge and learn more about computer security. Hack Forums is the first forum that he has ever registered for. When he was a normal member, Factor8™ had no goals and would only browse the forum and read threads that he found interesting. Only after becoming an Ub3r member did he start to become more active and contributive to the forum by participating in money exchanging. It was only until he became a staff member (and then eventually an admin) when his priorities started to change. Being a staff member entailed being assigned to moderate the forum and check reports. Later as an administrator, he was tasked to recover the accounts of members. Over the years he has become close to a few members that have made an impact on him during his Hack Forums career such as: cobija [2], kutmustakurt [3], and Synapse. (Rusty_v). Factor8™ has contributed a lot to the forum by being a part of Staff and being an administrator. This did not hinder him from being a successful currency exchanger.

I feel I was one of the first legitimate exchangers on HF. And looking back, I feel proud about the trust & goodwill I’ve built over the years. It really feels awesome when I do escrow deals and members trust me blindly with money and other details. That trust is something which I really cherish. Forum-wise, I feel I always have been fair and equitable while moderating and dealing with members. I know I have my share of haters but nobody can accuse me of being partial and HF is an awesome community. We enjoy and share and care. We have a goldmine of knowledge and resources here.

Areas of interest

Factor8™ is interested in PC security and troubleshooting. He is also interested in other activities with things such as outdoor activities, sports, and economics. Managing is also one of his biggest interests.
