HabboxWorld was a venture set up in 2007 by Sierk after the closure of the international arms of Habbox which had failed to launch and had became a waste of money and resource. The idea of HabboxWorld was for it to be a place for all international Habbox activities to be held. Due to a decline in its popularity HabboxWorld was later closed to the public in 2008 and was then used as a testing ground for Habboxforum.
After the failure to launch Habbox in Canada and Australia Habbox Management decided that they needed to do something to try and raise the international profile of Habbox. Instead of starting from scratch, in 2007 the separate international forums were all merged into one, thus HabboxWorld was born. The site remained relatively popular through 2007 and held many international events and gained several members of staff who went on to managerial positions at Habbox from over seas. As there was still a developing community at HabboxWorld a lot of users found themselves moving over to HabboxForum, a larger and UK based forum where they discovered more about Habbox.
2008 - Closure
Unfortunately due to failure of the international arm of Habbox to well and truly take the community was closed down. After around only a year the site was closed down which meant that there were no longer any international sites to the Habbox franchise. Management and members of staff were all offered jobs at HabboxForum and Habbo. Some members who transferred from one site to the other then went on to become General Management including Mr.OSH (formerly opensourcehost) who at the time of the closure was Co-Forum Manager with Yoshimitsui who also became a Forum Administrator at HabboxForum.
2010 - Present
In 2010 it was announced that all English speaking hotels were to merge. This meant that the UK, USA, CA, AU and SG hotels were all to merge. The UK hotel was the last to merge with the first four hotels on the 10th June 2010. This opened up a whole new can of worms for Habbox which had previously been sealed shut. There was now hundreds of thousands of new users who very little of had heard of Habbox before. Habbox run many successful events and competitions to entice some of these people from all over the globe to join Habbox of which many did. Habbox remains an extremely popular fansite, even more so now than ever with the merger of all five hotels. Habbox now has a much more diverse range of staff, members and features to offer it's ever growing fanbase.
As with any fansite there are many people who help keep the site up and running. This is no different with HabboxWorld. Three main, notable people who kept the site running over the two years it was up are as follow.
Joshuar - Assistant General Manager (International)
As AGM (International) it was Joshuar who helped mastermind HabboxWorld. It was him and his small team of administrators who kept HabboxWorld running on a day to day basis. Joshuar went on to become Assistant General Manager (Content) and Forum Administrator for Habbox and HabboxForum after the closure of HabboxWorld and later resigned in 2008.
Yoshimitsui - Forum Manager
As joint Forum Manager it was Yoshimitsui's job to assist Josuar with the day to day running of HabboxWorld. He would have dealt with many things from forum issues to the hiring and firing of International staff. Yoshimitsui stayed at Habbox after the closure of HabboxWorld as a Forum Administrator on HabboxForum and left years later in 2011.
Mr.OSH - Forum Manager
Along with Yoshimitsui, Mr.OSH was joint Forum Manager and he to helped Joshuar with the daily running of the forum. Mr.OSH had the same duties as he Co-Forum Manager. As well, Mr.OSH (then known as opensourcehost) stayed at Habbox and went on to become Assistant General Manager (Content) after the resignation of Joshuar in 2008 and he then went on to leave Habbox in 2009.
