Habbo to introduce 'Habbo Guardians'0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015 at 9:39 pm

As Habbo continues its plunge into silence, Sulake CEO Paul LaFontaine announced yesterday the introduction of ‘Habbo Guardians‘; a new system that combines recent feedback from Habbos and an improvement in online safety. The announcement comes a fortnight after a Channel 4 expose on Habbo, where it was alleged underage individuals were being groomed into sexual activities online.

Modelled similarly to the previous Hobba system, Habbo Guardians will be given powers to kick, mute and override rooms. However, Paul confirmed earlier on his Twitter account that Guardians will not have the power to ban. Other features, such as responding to calls for help and the ability to work with the current moderation team, have been rumoured but haven’t yet been confirmed by Sulake.

The new Guardians will be seen a continuation of the current Habbo Helper system, where individuals can work their way up a ‘talent tree‘ by helping new Habbos and showing them around the hotel. How these individuals will be picked, remains to be seen. However Paul L. has mentioned that the system will be “very selective“, indicating previous Habbo history, such as time on the hotel and previous bans could be taken into account. The system will be implemented once the mute has been lifted, hinting the changes could be brought in sooner rather than later.

The reaction to the new Habbo Guardian system have been mixed, with some Habbos welcoming the new changes brought by Sulake. However, other Habbos have been less welcoming of the system – liking it to the previous Habbo eXperts team, which was seen by many as a failure due to some eXperts abusing their powers. One former Habbo eXpert, Jarkie, admitted that the previous Habbo expert system had individuals that abused their powers. However, he did comment that a system could work but would require some regulation.
