[BREAKING NEWS] Norway Outrage0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015 at 9:20 pm

OUTRAGE has been caused by the recent badge given out by Habbo to those that filled in the poll to remember those who tragically lost their lives in the Norway Massacre on July 22nd 2011!

It never really occured to me that Habbo giving out a badge to show recognition of those that remembered those in Norway would ever cause so much hassle, but it seems it could be very easily done! Many Habbo’s have taken this very personal and have written in detail about their feelings on the matter and are very offended. It also seems Habbo’s may be annoyed because they didn’t actually receive the badge for filling out the poll as of 26/7/11 because Habbo took note of the problems and opted to stop giving out badges to anyone who filled the poll out from this date.

The badge (pictured right) was given out to all Habbo’s who filled out the poll on the first day of the it being released and no matter what they wrote, they still got the badge. One Habbo wrote “‘i dont care about the oslo people, me just want badge” and still was given the badge! So it even shows that the disrespecful Habbo’s still got the badge, and this is what is offending the people that actually care.

Habbo’s initial idea of the poll was to give habbos the freedom to write how they feel about the tragedy and to allow them to get their thoughts out and to then reward them with a badge to show that they paid their respects – but it didn’t quite work out this way, which Habbo probably knew but chose to carry on with the activity anyway!

I left a very heart-felt comment, paying my respects to those who lost their lives in Norway and I did it without thinking a badge was involved. I was quite surprised to see a new badge in my inventory today from the poll as it was very unexpected!

A quote from Habbo read “Im sorry no badges are supposed to be given” which suggests that no badges were supposed to be handed out in the first place, which we all know is not true, as the badge was uploaded long before the poll was released. So I think this quote means that no more badges will be handed out from now on.

There are very mixed feelings on this matter. Some Habbo’s really don’t give a care in the world because it hasn’t happened to them, however some Habbo’s feel quite strongly about the matter, whilst other Habbo’s only care about the badge. I feel Habbo did well in the fact that they didn’t outline the fact that you would receive a badge for doing this, but it was very predictible that this was going to happen since we get badges for merely sitting in a room these days, so going to the effort of filling out a poll was, of course, going to get us a badge!

My message is for everyone to understand that Habbo Hotel is an online virtual community who try their best to incorporate real life events into Habbo to show their respects and to offer Habbo’s the chance to get involved and have their say if they have no where else to say their thoughts and it isn’t to be taken too seriously. Everyone makes mistakes – even professional companies so I wouldn’t let it get to too much.

If you still wish to leave good wishes to those in Norway, you can still head to the Memory Room knowing you won’t receive a badge.

Please leave a comment with your thoughts on the matter in this news report.

Only light can conquer darkness, only love can conquer hate. May the victims rest in peace.
