[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

[12th Birthday] What Made You Join Habbox?0
By - Posted

For a lot of us, Habbox has been a part of our lives for huge parts of our lives. As Habbox’s 12th birthday is fast approaching, I thought it would be interesting to interview some different users and ask them some questions about their time at Habbox and how things have changed (or stayed the same) since they first joined.
Special thanks to FlyingJesus, lawrawrrr and welshcake to letting me interview them.
 
When did you first join Habbox?
 
FlyingJesus – February 2006
 
lawrawrrr – July 2009, although I didn’t start using the forum until November 2010
 
welshcake – I properly joined in June last year
 
What made you join?
 
FlyingJesus – Not really sure, just wanted to be part of a community I guess and it was the best site around for a Habbo like me +*+*+
 
lawrawrrr – My friend who I used to play Habbo with got me into the radio and I signed up then. Then I actually USED that account when I won a win a room competition.
 
welshcake – I applied for events organiser at HabboQuests when they were pretty newish.. well, when they were becoming quite popular like they are now and they didn’t reply for ages. I worked quite hard on this event room and spent ££ on it in real life so I went looking for another fansite. I found Habbox. I applied for EO but didn’t get it straight away but then I had a help desk trial. During said help desk trial I was offered EO over at HabboQuests but I ignored dolphingirl for weeks because I didn’t have the heart to say I was at Habbox. Harhar.
 
Tell us a bit about what Habbox was like when you first became a member.
 
FlyingJesus – Well back then pretty much everyone on Habbox was like 13-17 so there were a lot of emotional people around and everyone thought they were far more important than they really were, but it was VIBRANT and there was loads of activity all over the place, even to the point that most people would stick to just 2 or 3 areas of the forum and have cliques based on that. DJs only talked to DJs, Runescape players had their own little gang, the Spam forum was a place to tread carefully if you weren’t well known, and everyone hated mods on principle. It was very high school.
 
lawrawrrr – I don’t remember a huge amount to be honest! I started hanging around in the Help Desk quite a lot and made friends with a few popular Habboxers at the time, including Georgia and Hayley. I used to love listening to the radio and going to party rooms where everyone was really friendly and chatty, and I eventually got introduced to the comps department where I got my first trial (on Christmas Eve!) and the rest is history…
 
welshcake – It was scary. I was scared of all the people and I was scared of failing my trial and I was scared of the forum and doing things wrong. Everyone seemed to know each other and it made me awkward because I didn’t know anyone. So yes, scary.
 
Are you glad you joined or do you think you’d have been better of if you’d stayed away?
 
FlyingJesus – Definitely glad I joined, it’s been a big part of my life for a long time now and there’s lit no way of knowing what I’d have been like without it. Might have been an astronaut idk
 
lawrawrrr – 100% glad. This probably sounds silly but through Habbox I got interested in Graphics (although I’d liked it before I’d never done a lot), journalism and web design – basically three of the departments I manage now. Because of this I got into journalism and design while I was at University – and now that’s my actual real life job – and my ideal career is in design, too (which changed from teaching after I did more graphics at Habbox and IRL). Habbox has changed my life completely, and it’s bloody fantastic.
 
welshcake – I am glad I joined. Omg if I said “I’d rather I stayed away” I would get fired RIP bye.
 
Who do you miss from when you first joined?
 
FlyingJesus – Bef. She was my friend who I used to talk to all the time and we’d ring each other and chat about what a **** she was, it was great.
 
lawrawrrr – The friend I miss the most Alex3213 – we were really close and he was my first real friend at Habbox, then he left 
 
welshcake – No one to be honest. Can’t think of anyone. I don’t think anyone has left for me really.
 
What’s the most memorable event for you during your time at Habbox?
 
FlyingJesus – Sarey making an account for her “cousin” which was just her all along and being on both accounts for like years pretending to be two diff people and having babies and stuff
 
lawrawrrr – I have two! The first is my first Win a Room, which is what GOT me onto Habbox really so I’ll always remember that (♥ DJs Robbie and Rave!). I was such a noob and won SO much furni, most of which I still have!! The second one is HxSS from 2013, I played Habbo for SO long during that time! Even though I won Worst Sport and Biggest Moaner I really enjoyed it haha!
 
welshcake – I would say when I got first promoted in HxL because I didn’t expect it at all as I had never DJed before in my entire life so it was all new.
 
What, if anything, would you change now to improve Habbox?
 
FlyingJesus – Buy me shoes
 
lawrawrrr – Well, I haven’t really got an excuse for changing things as in my current position I kinda have the ability TO change things… but I think the thing I would change if I was magic is some people’s attitudes to things and people, I feel like some things are so targeted or personal when they really don’t need to be! To quote a fantastic film… “I wish we could all get along like we used to in middle school… I wish I could bake a cake filled with rainbows and smiles and everyone would eat and be happy…”
 
welshcake – If I could I would change the amount of dedicated people. So if I could, I would give birth to 1020 babies who are all dedicated to Habbox.
