Inactive? Banned. Deleted. Yikes!7

Inactive? Banned. Deleted. Yikes!

 

Can you smell that?

Something smells strange.. and it’s not MrCroissant’s sandwich he left on his desk back in March..

It’s come to our attention that Habbo accounts are being banned if they have not been logged into for a long while.. is another purge on the horizon?

Read on to join the investigation.


Samanfa, a respected member of our Habbox community, recently attempted to log into an account she had made in 2011 – after the merge, and after the mass deletion of Habbo accounts that followed. Suddenly..

Sam was faced with a ban. Supposedly, bad behavior. Samanfa then discovered the URL of her ban unveiled the next chapter of our mystery..

“Banned due to inactivity pending deletion”

 

Samanfa took to the HabboxForums to share her story (seriously, sign up if you haven’t) and many Habbo detectives were immediately on the case. Our top investigator lawrawrrr has an excellent theory:

*yawn*

Although very boring, it could indeed be the reason for a possible deleting frenzy. We don’t know Sulake’s retention period for data, but it’s probably something between 7-10 years. And what better time to have a good clear out, just before the arrival of Habbo 2020? Right?

Thankfully, this story has a happy ending, and Samanfa was able to have the ban lifted.

 

Phew! Thanks Customer Support!

Do you have an account you’ve not logged onto for a while? Maybe you should check it’s not on the “pending to be deleted” list, or maybe you should keep an eye out for that username you’ve wanted for so long. It could be yours any day now!

💡 💡 💡

Comment your thoughts! Simply GDPR? A clear-up for preparation for Habbo 2020? Maybe you work for Sulake, and can confirm it’s just MrCroissant’s forgotten sandwich making that funky smell.

    That explains a lot, I swear I’ve been a good boy in the past! I guess I need to get hold of customer services!

    I now want a full investigation into why MrCroissant forgot his sandwich in the office and what kind of sandwich it is/was!

    PingvinIsBack commented on 9th June, 2020

    That’s all wrong. It is WaltzMatilda’s dirty sock that she left at the office.

    YellowBelli commented on 10th June, 2020

    Imagine if we got “POW! Banned!” instead of the current ban notification haha

    Jarkie commented on 16th June, 2020
