Rares, Rabbits & Nuts0

The back story to this first publicly influenced Habbo update.

Recently, the CEO of Sulake, Paul LaFontaine, has admitted that despite timezone based issues with the new Rares, he has received plentiful amounts of good praising comments on the recent update, which followed requests from the Habbo public to have time based Rares and more buying power, as well as a system that means that only a certain number of a Rare will exist. Habbo went along with this idea, and voilà the current limited Rares and nuts were introduced.

This has been part of the current change by Habbo, in which they are turning over the major running of new ideas to the public. This involves the public coming up with the new groundbreaking ideas which are then evaluated to see whether they are practical or not. Unfortunately, Paul LaFontaine has admitted that there are costs, timing issues and other factors that slow down the deployment of these new ideas. He however insists that the feedback on all the public forums, forums and moderation is not being ignored, merely requiring time, resources and communication.

It would appear that problems with moderation and forums indeed are being looked at, as we have recently seen the removal of a lot of staff, as well as the correction of unfair bans, and this new approach to Habbo updates seems to be fairly convincing in method, and could most certainly have the power to create a positive benefit for Habbo and its future. The Easter campaign has only been the first of a long line of public influenced updates, and hopefully this success will continue.

This has certainly spiked much public interest at the moment, but what are your views on this matter? Tell us your thoughts by pressing ‘Read More & Comment’!
