Bobba is back!0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015 at 9:43 pm

Here’s one for all you oldies – remember Bobba? It’s back!

Years ago, before open chat (able to swear) and long before the Mute/Safety chat fiasco, there was a word called ‘Bobba‘. It functioned as a swear-filter, blocking out words that aren’t suitable for younger ears (or eyes in this case). It was well known on Habbo, often used for website names, fansites and even as a euphemism (bobba you!). Even to this very day people still use it, despite it being out of use for a long time. Sulake even created another game aimed at older users entitled BobbaBar – obviously aimed at the more grown up topics and themes they were marketing the site for!

In December 2010, Sulake management decided to remove Bobba from the hotel as it confused new users. Since the creation of Habbo Hotel, there has been an increase in the amount of swearing in popular culture – texting, songs and reports, and most of the time bad words are represented by stars. This is the decision they made to revert to – however when they announced it they included the statement “keeping BOBBA forever in our hearts“. After the Great Mute, it was replaced with padlocks, which soon changed to inverted commas (”’). I for one prefer the reinstatement of Bobba – keeps Habbo a bit unique, don’t you think?


A lot of older users (myself included) were quite upset at this change, and suggested the return many times. Finally, after almost 2 years of waiting, BOBBA has returned! It’s now in capitals, but it’s still a blast from the past. Everywhere you go on Habbo you’ll see thousands of players shouting BOBBA! as fast as their little pixel mouths will take them.
