Madness joined Hack Forums on June 18, 2011 due to a friend's recommendation and request, asking him whether he could vouch for the shell booter he was running at the time. After awhile, he decided to stick around and engage in the community.
When he joined, Madness didn't really have any site goals but eventually, the first thing he ever wanted was to become an Ub3r member and earn more than 100 positive reputation points, both of which he completed. Awards were something that caught his eye, too. He received the Cuddly and Cute award which he claims to be his favorite and most prized. He also thought of owning a group but has decided he wouldn't buy one, and is "not going to pay thousands of dollars for one."
Madness was asked if anyone has impacted his time here on the site and he replied:
Several for sure have made an impact on me! I have to give a big shout-out to my friend Killzyaz, as he was the one who got me to join. Positive and I were good friends for awhile, but eventually grew apart. He got me to the point where I was actually interested in the forum. He also introduced me to one of my best friends I've ever had on the Internet, Astonish. Astonish and I have been friends for nearly a year now, and we still talk often. He's made a lasting impact upon me for sure.
