To celebrate Habbox’s 12th birthday, here’s an interview (with questions from you!) with Habbox Co-Owner xxMATTGxx!
Goldenmerc asked: Is Goldenmerc the best?
No. [HAHA, amen to that – Empired]
anything-9 asked: When are you finally going to get behind HxHD?
Never – That’s what your job is. My job is to stand there and look pretty!
CrazyLemurs asked: How often do you and Bertie share coffee?
Haven’t had coffee in like, 10 years? If I drink any sort of hot drink it is normally tea. Although, I have told Rhyss to take me to Starbucks next month so I can break my virginity with them.
!:random!:! asked: Did you like being a graphics designer back in ’06?
It was okay, I was young and didn’t really think much of it back then. Habbox was still somewhat new to me and I didn’t really understand the whole “system” and I ended up getting fired for inactivity. I think it was before other people were better at graphics than me. Ah well, those were the days when —MAD—was around.
What’s your favourite department and why?
I would probably go with the Forum department, mainly because that is where I first properly started having a role at Habbox and progressed through the ranks with ease. Had a number of good memories back in the day with the department, and miss some of the guys who used to be part of it.
What’s your least favourite department (or the one you take the least interest in) and why?
Rare Values because it’s like a dodo bird. It should either have been killed years ago when Habbo changed the trading rules on the client or re-vamped so it actually makes sense in modern times.
What do you think should be done with the RV department?
I may get shouted at this or may get cheers, but I really think RV either needs to be closed down fully, or one dedicated person who can code can re-code the whole system and make it work for the modern times. There has been some good suggestions over the years that could make it more relevant, but we haven’t come across anyone to spend any time on it.
