Over Moderation Issues0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015 at 9:40 pm

The mute has come to an end and moderators are starting to crack down on those that caused it – Is it getting too much?

As you all know, the chat within Habbo Hotel has begun to be unmuted. During this unmute, chat has returned but can only be used through the use of a white list dictionary to ensure that only pre-approved vocabulary is used during on-site communication.

Even though this chat does not allow any inappropriate vocabulary to be used, the site has been over-moderated ever since the global mute was lifted. This over-moderation has led to many people being wrongly permanently banned from Habbo or having their IP address banned to prevent re-registration of another account from that computer.

Habbo moderators have sometimes been seen as too strict in their actions, but there has never been such a over-moderation as this in Habbo history. This is leading to many people leaving due to either an account ban or in protest to this action. At this moment in time, Sulake should surely be attempting to win back users after the mute, but this moderation seems to be putting publicity over the users (and ultimately profit).

In my opinion, there is also a positive side to this argument. As the recent news reports have revealed, a small minority group targets the users of Habbo by trying to ‘groom‘ them. This moderation may result in some members of this group leaving Habbo and moving on. This can only prove to be a positive result for both Sulake and the Habbo community. Although they are currently over-moderating the site, Sulake are planning to give users more of a say in these matters in the future through the use of initiatives such as the Habbo Patrol and Habbo Guardians. These have the potential to be successful in the future, and will help the Habbo community to get back on its feet after the mute.

So what do you think about the over moderation?
