Moderation for the Lazy: Auto-Ticketing!0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015 at 9:41 pm

A new way to make moderation easier may increase the rates of warnings, mutes and bans sent around the hotel.


The debacle of the Great Habbo Mute left many users unhappy with Channel 4’s allegations. When the word filter was implemented, people had to improvise on words, for example ‘My Sea Nan‘ for MSN and ‘Sky Pie‘ for Skype. Names that weren’t added to the list had to be made up too, as many requests to add words to the list were seemingly ignored.

Habbo caught on quickly, and one of the most popular subjects was ‘Sky Pie’. Soon, users began getting punished for using close links to this variation. These trigger words sent a ticket straight to the moderators, who often banned quickly. Habbo have made the decision to make a new moderation tool to deal with this sharp rise in the number of tickets.

As you can see from the picture on the right, it looks very similar to the new Private Message and Habbo Helper systems. It shows the user who the ticket has been filed about, with a history of their offenses next to it. The large white box shown below it appears to be a log of the chat, whether that be through Private Messages or in a room. Not seen in the picture is a section on the right of it pertaining to the current offense, and the action the moderator will take. There is even a button on the bottom to close the box if the ticket is unnecessary
 

But what do you think? Should handing out bans be easier for the moderators of Habbo? Or is the new system going to be a bad idea? Leave your thoughts below! Remember to be logged in!
