Score One for Underscores!0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015 at 9:42 pm

What’s that in the distance? Could it be a low dash in a username?!


Many years ago, in the liberal state of Habbo Hotel, player names were incredibly varied, from super-rare colours (like Red fromHabbox.com) to those even a dozen characters long! However, for an undisclosed reason, Habbo removed the ability to use the underscore (also known as an underbar, low line or understrike) when naming new avatars.

For avid name collectors, this meant they couldn’t take special names such as 0_0 and HE_LO. Accounts already containing these keystrokes remained unchanged, further increasing the rarity (and consequently, value) of them. 

In the past week, Habbo have subtly and unannounced re-included these sneaky characters when selecting your name.
Previously, the comma was also gone from the list of punctuation available but has now been returned along with the underscore.

Now newer users can reserve a name like the one in the picture to the right, in case they get caught up in the endless sea of bans. When typing in general chat, the underscore becomes invisible as soon as a second message is sent below it, meaning that seemingly simple names may actually be much more complicated. You might see ___HELLO___ when flicking through rooms, or maybe even your name with what looks to be a space next to it…
 

But what do you think? Are you hastily signing up a new collection of names with the underbar? Or are you happy in your current situation, not needing to register piles more? Tell us your thoughts below, but remember to be logged in!
