Articles

The Articles department, while relatively new in this incarnation, is stemmed from one of Habbox’s earliest departments – News. Articles writers produce informative and interesting articles about a range of topics – including real life and Habbo news, film, TV and music reviews, interesting insights, personal opinions, creative writing, previews, guides and much more.

The current Articles manager is DaenerysGOT.

History

 

This incarnation of the Articles department was set up in May 2015 by lawrawrrr, the AGM (Content). It was an evolution of the News department, which wrote articles exclusively about Habbo news and developments.

Under the new header of Articles, real-life news, reviews and previews and creative writing were introduced, giving both readers and writers a bigger range to choose from. The role of Proofreader was also introduced, to ensure the articles were top-quality.

Over the years, the news department did occasionally allow have real-life stories and even had a sub-department for creative writing (also called Articles) – read more about that here.

Since the new department was introduced, managers have added new features and worked to streamline the department and fit it into Habbox’s structure. These include new competitions, Habbo previews, Conversation Starters (to integrate more into Habbox Forum) and more!

Staff Roles

 

There are different roles in the Articles department in order to ensure articles are being written, that they’re of a good quality and to make sure everyone gets to advertise and interact with the community on a day to day basis using the forum! Each staff member has regular contact with the (Assistant) Manager, whom they would go to for help and advice.
Article Writers To write varied articles on any topic they want, then post them on Habbox where the community are able to read and comment on them. All writers have a requirement of 2 articles each week.
Proofreaders While they do not have a fully-set limit, however they must read the articles and correct any mistakes including SPAG (Spelling, Punctuation And Grammar). After they have corrected the mistakes, they then go on to PM the staff with what they have changed, so that the staff can learn from their mistakes.
Head Articles Writers Help the Manager with maintaining the department, as well as continuing to write articles and help out with proofreading when necessary. They write a little comment section in staff weekly/monthly reports.
The (Assistant) Manager(s) Oversee the running of the department. They still have to complete the duties of an Articles Writer and Proofreader, but they also must write reports for the department staff and are responsible for recruiting and dismissing members to/from the department.
