Big Fansite Interview – Get Involved!1
By - Posted 14th July, 2015

null

With the help of the ever-lovely bloop, the Articles department will be publishing a HUGE interview involving many different fansites for you to read!

However, this will be no small task and we’re asking for your help to submit questions again! Much like with xxMATTGxx’s interview to celebrate Habbox’s 12th birthday, we need you to send your questions in to be answered by any or all of Habbo’s fansites! Plans are not yet finalised so I can’t promise who will be participating in the interview and who won’t, but I can say that we HOPE to see as many of the following fansites up for the interview as possible:

HabboSecrets, HFFM, HabboQuests, HabboHours, FansiteBin, ThisHabbo, HabboKingdom, FlyHabbo, HabboShire, Habulous, HabboTiles, Puhekupla and (of course) Habbox!

If you want a chance to ask ANY of the following fansites any questions, please PM Empired (click here) with as many questions as you like by the end of Sunday 19th July. Alternatively, you can simply click ‘Read More and Comment’ below and leave your questions in the comments as I’ll use anything from in there as well!

Information:
-You may ask as many questions as you like and submit them whenever you think of them (you don’t have to wait and send them all in one PM)
-Your question(s) can be directed at one specific fansite, all of them, or any combination of them. Just make sure you specify who your question is for in the message you send me!
-Please be aware that your question may not be used for any reason, and the use of question is up to the discretion of the Articles department.

[Birthday] What Made Us Join Habbox?9
By - Posted 6th July, 2015

As some of you may have noticed I’ve been asking around and trying to find out what made us all join Habbox to celebrate Habbox’s 12th birthday. I’ve had an overwhelming number of responses from HabboxForum, and now it’s time to see what most people have to say!

When did you first join Habbox?
A difficult question to sum up as I had such a huge range of responses. The most popular years seemed to be 2005-06 and then 2010, but we have answers from most years. One thing I did notice however is that there were fewer people joining from 2013 onwards. Is that a reflection of newbies being too nervous to post in Habbox Feedback (it’s a scary place, we’ll all agree) or a reflection of the dwindling number of new members?

And just for fun.. MissAlice was the oldest member to post (joining in June 2004 – over 11 years ago!) whilst Cabl was our newest member, joining just last month!

What made you join?
Quite a few older members claim to have first started using Habbox because of Rare Values or News, which is odd as they are some of the quietest departments. There’s even been plenty of discussion over the past few months/years about scrapping the Rare Values department entirely! I guess it really shows you how much times change…
Like me, many people started browsing the Habbox sites long before they signed up to the forum but usually ended up being drawn in by big events during the Habbox Summer Spectacular or Easter Eggstavaganza so they could see how they were doing on the leaderboard. Although it seems like an obvious thing, it could well be useful for Management and General Management to see that those big events (particularly HxSS by the looks of things) could be crucial if we want to increase the number of new members, particularly as they’re long-running events so new users will keep coming back for those two weeks (and hopefully will continue to revisit long after that).

[Birthday] Interview with xxMATTGxx0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015

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.

[Guest Article] Habbox Love Triangle?2

Written by one of the Articles department’s top gossip correspondents: Nick

This new Habbox love affair has not gone unnoticed! xxMATTGxx and mdport. are the new item of Habbox! They have been trying to fly under the community’s relationship radar but that stops today. I am here to let everyone know that mdport. has been CHEATING on xxMATTGxx with the one and only Bloop! Before all of this happened Matt and mdport. were very happy together; singing songs in the HxHD, having late night Skype calls and spending countless hours in a locked Habbo room. I caught up with mdport. and asked him a quick question.

[29/06/2015 6:35:49 pm] Ñîčk: Matt on a scale of 1 to 10 how much do you love matt
[29/06/2015 6:52:07 pm] Matt : waat
[29/06/2015 6:52:34 pm] Ñîčk: dw
[29/06/2015 6:52:44 pm] Matt : i dnt love matt
What?! I thought mdport loved xxMATTGxx? This is not the case. I asked one of my newly found sources, Phil, to gather some information. I had spoken to Phil multiple times while mdport. and xxMATTGxx were together and Phil had told me that mdport. has had an eye on Bloop for a while. As you all know, there was an incident where Bloop was banned from the forum. This wasn’t because he was breaking multiple forum rules. It was all a cover up so that xxMATTGxx wouldn’t find out that mdport. really was going for Bloop! Mdport. had to ban Bloop to show that he really didn’t like him, so that he could fly under xxMATTGxx’s radar. xxMATTGxx and mdport. are still an item at this moment in time, but not for long! Bloop has returned from his departure from Habbox and is ready to cause havoc. I was speaking to Phil earlier this morning about this love affair, and he thinks that Bloop and mdport. are secretly in love and that xxMATTGxx needs to know!

How to Become a Content Designer!0
By - Posted
 
Hey everyone! This is a new style of article (which will hopefully become a weekly thing) where I interview Habbox managers and staff and they give me insider information on improving your chances of having your applications accepted and joining a Habbox department. So if you really want to join a department but are worried that you’ll be rejected, read on to discover how to eradicate those fears!
 
This week I’m lucky enough to interview Habbox’s Content Manager: Expling (A.K.A Tommy)
 
—————————————————
 
Hey Tommy, let’s start off with a little explanation of what Content Designers actually do.
 
Hi Charlie! Content Designers keep the sites up to date with relevant information to keep everything as accurate as possible when users are browsing Habbox.com and HabboxWiki.com. They are expected to do either 3 site edits or 10 wiki edits per week, but I should say I’m not normally strict on minimums and so I only tend to warn those who don’t make any edits in a week. I always think a little effort is better than none at all!
 
If a Content Designer wants to go above and beyond the minimums, what would you suggest they could do?
 
To go above and beyond, they could edit more and especially edit things people forget about. For example there are lots of images on the wiki that people tend to forget about and it’s so nice to log in to see that someone took the time aside to edit those images and make sure theyre all in the correct categories. 
 
I also love it when people take the time to communicate with others in the department and try replying to forum threads, advertise the department and the wiki or advertise that applications are open. I really appreciate it when people offer their ideas to improve the Content department, when they help with events, or make guides for the other staff and help newer staff settle in.
 
What message would you give to people whose applications aren’t accepted first time?
 
Well I normally talk to each applicant individually anyway and I tell them why their appication was not accepted, what they can do to improve it and maybe an example of a good reply to the questions they didn’t do so well on. Then I’d give them the opportunity to try again and remind them that they can still get involvede even if they aren’t staff because editing the wiki is open to everyone.
 
What kind of people are you looking for to join Content?
 
Anyone can be brilliant but I always look for people who stay true to their application. It’s all very well to come off as the most dedicated person in the world when you’re applying but I’m so frustrated by people who apply saying “I really want to do well in the department, I won’t let you down” and then don’t do any work during their trial or resign two days in.
 
I also wish people would act cool and not be afraid to say what they feel, give feedback help improve stuff and actually try to talk to me – its not like I am rude or mean or anything! It would honestly make my job so much easier but I think newer users in particular are always a bit afraid of their managers which can be really restricting, actually. Then obviously I look for people who follow the rules and appreciate/respect what I have to say/how I like to run things. There’s a difference between giving feedback and refusing to follow rules.
 
Thanks Tommy! Is there anything else you’d like to add?
 
Yes: JOIN CONTENT! And please give me strength for my upcoming exams. Physics tomorrow frown.gif
