Redtiz Visits the Helpdesk!
On the 12th May 2011, Redtiz (Habbo’s community manager) visited our very own Helpdesk! She sat there for
just over an hour answering all of your questions! It was quite full for most of the time, and if you missed her, don’t worry! You can read an (almost full) transcript of the busy interview right here, split into easy-to access sections – Habbo, her Job, Personal Life and most importantly, Gossip!

Habbo staff can give themselves credits to test things that need credits for, yes.
How did you find out about Habbo? Did you use to play?
Nope, I never played on Habbo before I worked here.
If you could play any Habbo game in real life, which one would it be?
I would do Snowstorm… I’ve never lived anywhere with enough snow though
What do you think of the name deletions?
It seems like a good idea to free up all those names which can’t be used.

Not that often! I come on generall to test things.
Do you think we should get a UK manager?
Well we had one, but lost her – so we won’t get one back.

Some moderators, yes. Those moderators get told off, though.

No, that’s not true.

I work for a team called ‘Global Operations’.
What does your day-to-day job involve? What tasks?
Lots of paperwork! I create policis and guidelines which community managers have to live by. I also train the community managers.
Does that mean you have to travel to train different countries managers?
Yes, I do sometimes have to travel.

Never. God no. Eurrggh.

I fot the name from a character I used to play on Dark Ages of Camelot – she was a halfling with red hair called ‘Tiz’

I work permanently from home – on my trusty iMac!
What browser do you use?
What’s your favourite iPhone app?
Angry Birds is up there (obviously) and it’s nice that the iPlayer and that are now on the iPad. Infinity Blade was a good app! Though I got stuck on it…
Got any hot gossip for us, Redtiz?
Heidster who was the old UK Community Manager makes the most excellent machinma – films done on virtual worlds. In fact, she’s so good, a famous film director got her to make a film for him which was shown at Cannes!
Ludus lost his job with others in the UK because of the site merge.
Once in the UK office, they had a ton of cardboard boxes to throw, instead they made them into a massive cardboard castle! And then Callie got stuck in it…
We’d like to thank her so much for her time in answering our questions, even if we did lag her a lot! Don’t forget, if you’ve still got those burning questions for a member of Habbo Staff, you still have time to get your questions in for 0rca’s visit… click here
