Introduction

We are a group of members focused on improving the Hack Forums marketplace, marketing techniques, quality of Hack Forumsin general, and monetizing methods. Our group requirements are more strict than others to keep only the most HQ members in our group. We are also very active in the marketplace and we love to help others and help them succeed in selling and marketing their products.

History

The group first appeared on Hack Forums on the 4th of August 2011, under the leadership of Codevade. This was the first custom usergroup devoted to marketing, which has been followed by Illuminati and Black Diamond.

The group’s main attractions were the prospect of making more money, which brought members in, as well as the biggest marketplace help desk in the Monetizing Techniques subforum. They also had a special Seal of Approval, which was unique for members and signified the reputability and trustworthiness of the product, as well as seller.

Current Status

On the 18th of January 2013, the member Shekhar made a thread in the Marketers subforum offering to b-u-m-p members' threads- even though it was against site policies. Once informed of this on May 18th, 2013, Omniscient took action, immediately closing and repfucking Shekhar on the 13th of May. Omniscient later posted a thread later that day informing members of what happened and announcing he was closing the Marketers group.

On the 1st of June 2013, Cryptic™ announced that he had purchased the Marketers from Codevade, and changed the group to The Brotherhood.

The group was purchased by Cryptic and remained a blank group for approximately a month, until June of 2013, when the group was reformed into The Brotherhood.
