The Beginning of the Great Unmute!0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015 at 9:39 pm

The Great Unmute has begun!

Last week, Sulake finally began unmuting the hotels. Paul LaFontaine, CEO of Sulake, announced on his Twitter the pilot Hotel for the unmuting was Finland – being one of the smallest hotels (with already implemented opening hours), it was hardly surprising. They also placed an IP block on the hotel – meaning that only IPs (the unique number which connects your computer to the Internet) registered in Finland would be able to access it. However, it’s been lifted now, and we’ve been having a look round the new system!

 
The mute has only been improved at best – there’s a list of ‘safe’ words (currently 850 words on the list, in both Finnish and English – the full list can be found here). When a user says a ‘non-safe’ word, padlocks show up (unapproved words are red and underlined in the chat box), which makes conversation nigh impossible, but it’s only temporary. Console chat and Events are still disabled. There is a public room, named the Picnic Park, where each time a Habbo enters, a popup box appears asking for suggestions for more words to add to the approved list. It declares Monday as the date for adding these new words. 

However, before a player can even access the approved words, they must pass a safety quiz which asks questions about the new and improved Safety Tips. In rooms, there is also an ‘Emergency Exit’ (or Hätäuloskäynti) button which has been added to the top left corner – which, when pressed, transports the player to the Hotel View and opens the Call For Help

These additions will be rolled out across the hotels in the coming weeks – believed to be very soon considering the recent removal of the Great Unmute website, where users could communicate their support to Sulake over the muted period.
 
Here’s to a new and improved Habbo (hopefully).
