[12th Birthday] What Made You Join Habbox?0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015 at 9:54 pm Habbox

For a lot of us, Habbox has been a part of our lives for huge parts of our lives. As Habbox’s 12th birthday is fast approaching, I thought it would be interesting to interview some different users and ask them some questions about their time at Habbox and how things have changed (or stayed the same) since they first joined.
Special thanks to FlyingJesus, lawrawrrr and welshcake to letting me interview them.
 
When did you first join Habbox?
 
FlyingJesus – February 2006
 
lawrawrrr – July 2009, although I didn’t start using the forum until November 2010
 
welshcake – I properly joined in June last year
 
What made you join?
 
FlyingJesus – Not really sure, just wanted to be part of a community I guess and it was the best site around for a Habbo like me +*+*+
 
lawrawrrr – My friend who I used to play Habbo with got me into the radio and I signed up then. Then I actually USED that account when I won a win a room competition.
 
welshcake – I applied for events organiser at HabboQuests when they were pretty newish.. well, when they were becoming quite popular like they are now and they didn’t reply for ages. I worked quite hard on this event room and spent ££ on it in real life so I went looking for another fansite. I found Habbox. I applied for EO but didn’t get it straight away but then I had a help desk trial. During said help desk trial I was offered EO over at HabboQuests but I ignored dolphingirl for weeks because I didn’t have the heart to say I was at Habbox. Harhar.
 
Tell us a bit about what Habbox was like when you first became a member.
 
FlyingJesus – Well back then pretty much everyone on Habbox was like 13-17 so there were a lot of emotional people around and everyone thought they were far more important than they really were, but it was VIBRANT and there was loads of activity all over the place, even to the point that most people would stick to just 2 or 3 areas of the forum and have cliques based on that. DJs only talked to DJs, Runescape players had their own little gang, the Spam forum was a place to tread carefully if you weren’t well known, and everyone hated mods on principle. It was very high school.
 
lawrawrrr – I don’t remember a huge amount to be honest! I started hanging around in the Help Desk quite a lot and made friends with a few popular Habboxers at the time, including Georgia and Hayley. I used to love listening to the radio and going to party rooms where everyone was really friendly and chatty, and I eventually got introduced to the comps department where I got my first trial (on Christmas Eve!) and the rest is history…
 
welshcake – It was scary. I was scared of all the people and I was scared of failing my trial and I was scared of the forum and doing things wrong. Everyone seemed to know each other and it made me awkward because I didn’t know anyone. So yes, scary.
 
Are you glad you joined or do you think you’d have been better of if you’d stayed away?
 
FlyingJesus – Definitely glad I joined, it’s been a big part of my life for a long time now and there’s lit no way of knowing what I’d have been like without it. Might have been an astronaut idk
 
lawrawrrr – 100% glad. This probably sounds silly but through Habbox I got interested in Graphics (although I’d liked it before I’d never done a lot), journalism and web design – basically three of the departments I manage now. Because of this I got into journalism and design while I was at University – and now that’s my actual real life job – and my ideal career is in design, too (which changed from teaching after I did more graphics at Habbox and IRL). Habbox has changed my life completely, and it’s bloody fantastic.
 
welshcake – I am glad I joined. Omg if I said “I’d rather I stayed away” I would get fired RIP bye.
 
Who do you miss from when you first joined?
 
FlyingJesus – Bef. She was my friend who I used to talk to all the time and we’d ring each other and chat about what a **** she was, it was great.
 
lawrawrrr – The friend I miss the most Alex3213 – we were really close and he was my first real friend at Habbox, then he left 
 
welshcake – No one to be honest. Can’t think of anyone. I don’t think anyone has left for me really.
 
What’s the most memorable event for you during your time at Habbox?
 
FlyingJesus – Sarey making an account for her “cousin” which was just her all along and being on both accounts for like years pretending to be two diff people and having babies and stuff
 
lawrawrrr – I have two! The first is my first Win a Room, which is what GOT me onto Habbox really so I’ll always remember that (♥ DJs Robbie and Rave!). I was such a noob and won SO much furni, most of which I still have!! The second one is HxSS from 2013, I played Habbo for SO long during that time! Even though I won Worst Sport and Biggest Moaner I really enjoyed it haha!
 
welshcake – I would say when I got first promoted in HxL because I didn’t expect it at all as I had never DJed before in my entire life so it was all new.
 
What, if anything, would you change now to improve Habbox?
 
FlyingJesus – Buy me shoes
 
lawrawrrr – Well, I haven’t really got an excuse for changing things as in my current position I kinda have the ability TO change things… but I think the thing I would change if I was magic is some people’s attitudes to things and people, I feel like some things are so targeted or personal when they really don’t need to be! To quote a fantastic film… “I wish we could all get along like we used to in middle school… I wish I could bake a cake filled with rainbows and smiles and everyone would eat and be happy…”
 
welshcake – If I could I would change the amount of dedicated people. So if I could, I would give birth to 1020 babies who are all dedicated to Habbox.
