As you’re probably aware, earlier today, Habbo made some changes to its trading system. If you don’t know, stop reading this article and click here. All caught up? Great! Let’s go…
Sulake seemed to bundle two updates together. Bulk adding to trade has been asked for for YEARS and they would be rolling in compliments if that’s all they released today. I’m really happy with that. But the problem is the second update! All currency furniture now gets automatically transferred to your purse now, instead of you being able to keep the furni items. Which right away wipes out pretty much all idea of the collectible ‘seasonal currency’ – unless you’re buying from the Marketplace then it’ll be converted to coins and you’ll have to re-purchase it.
What do you think of the new trading updates? https://t.co/Ph4kc84niW

Repurchasing coins/currency is all fine and dandy but since Habbo introduced the ‘tax’ on credits (paying 1c per 10 credits/gold bar/sack), it means that thousands of credits every year are going to be taken out of circulation. I understand from a business perspective that they want to encourage more people to physically buy credits, but are there really enough credits on the hotel that enough people will miss the odd one when they exchange?
I can’t help but feel like what they’re doing is alienating all new users really, who will be so happy to save up their credits to find that they have to spend half of what they’ve just earned to get a coin to trade for a piece of furni. Now I don’t pretend to know the intricacies of the trading world, but from what I gather this is really, really, really, really going to affect them. I suppose it’s like my new user example on a massive scale – if you’re buying a Pink Dragon (350gbs), you’ll be paying an EXTRA 7gb just to get those coins from the marketplace. I can’t help but think Habbo are trying to force everyone to use the Marketplace – which takes coins from your purse. Not the end of the world… just frustrating.
RIP Habbo? Well, I highly doubt it, but it is extremely annoying and feels like a kick in the teeth to those of us who do buy and exchange a huge amount of credits each year. We do have to understand that they are a business and need to make profits but they’re already introducing adverts and I personally feel they could do more with Builder’s Club and bundles before taking this much of a drastic step and alienating players old and new.
Habbo aren’t going to back down – as has been confirmed by staff member Macklebee (who is unjustly subject to the majority of abuse on Twitter, he’s just a staff member for a huge company, the fact he’s defending the decision at all shows a huge amount of strength and dedication in my books). If it was my decision, I’d reduce – not remove as Habbo wouldn’t want to – the credit tax to give a bit of a saving grace to people like me who exchange hundreds and hundreds of credits each year.

Habbo Super Bowl: Read On for more Info
As we All know, The Super Bowl is turning 50! The Super Bowl is known for being a National American Football League championship which is played annually between the champions of the National and the American Football Conferences.
This anniversary is all the more reason to celebrate the finest of American Football in true Habbo style. Habbo Staff have said ‘Better start decorating your room and getting it ready to party; Habbo style! Get your rooms ready for party games and Super Bowl-worthy food for some serious half-time performance fun’.
If you decide to host a Super Bowl Habbo party and you create a room for it, make sure to post and tag that room on Twitter so that all the Habbo community and staff can see how awesome it is. To tag it, use the hashtag #Habbotouchdown.
Also, Habbo staff have revealed that ‘staff may just gatecrash your parties to award you a shiny new staff achievement.’ I really want that achievement, don’t you? But Guess what?! That’s not all! If you put the team name of who you think will win the Super Bowl in the description box in your room and that team actually wins, Habbo will give you an additional achievement award. Isn’t that amazing? Do you want that achievement?
Are you going to host Super Bowl festivities on Habbo? Would you like to win the staff achievement? Let me know by clicking ‘Read More and Comment’!
Candles are my favourite things in the world. I can’t count the amount of times I’ve tried to eat a candle or set my hair on fire so I can become one with the candles… Ok, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration; but in short, I love candles.
Another one of my favourite things in the world is Disney World! It’s the holiday of choice for my family and has been for years and years. So, you are probably wondering what these things have in common? Well, ‘CANDLES’ is the answer!
I have recently discovered the following candles on Etsy. They are are created by Anthology Candles and come in 8 different scents.
- Haunted Mansion Candle
- Belle’s Library Candle
- Soarin’ Candle
- Dole Whip Candle
- Part of Your World Candle
- Churros Candle
- The Black Pearl Candle
- Main Street Bakery Candle
All of the candles smell like well… What they are called! The Soarin’ Candle smells like the Soarin’ ride that is featured in Epcot, the Main Street Bakery Candle smells like the Main Street Bakery. I’m sure you get where I’m going with this. The smells are not based on the park smells, but instead are actually the park smells! This is possible because most of the scents that are around the Disney Parks are actually artificial. You can find these candles by clicking this link here. What a crazy/amazing idea! Don’t you want your house to smell like Disney World?! I know I do. (Maybe not the sweaty tourist smells, but the nice bakery smells.)
They are a bit pricey, especially if you live in the UK; also, the delivery wait is 2-3 months which is quite a long time. Apart from all that, I will most probably buy two for my Mother for Mother’s Day (one for myself) as I know she would love it and they would help ‘spark’ some great memories.
Let me know what you think about them or just overpriced candles in general! Are you a big fan of candles or is artificial scents really not your thing? Comment below by clicking ‘Read More and Comment!
