The place where we really became a community, and where battle lines were drawn for the future.
The Hidden Roots was originally a spin off from the first forum, Metal Gear Solid 4: Choose Your Own Adventure. However, this forum came under attack from trolls and flamers, so it was decided that, in order to preserve sanity, a new forum would be created. MGS4: CYOA was still open, but activity lessened to an alarming extent. It was used as a sort of 'testing-ground' for new users. (What kind of troll wouldn't be able to resist spamming a deserted forum?)
