There are lots of things to do on the forum, and the great thing is most of these things are community-based which ultimately opens the grounds for discussion and communication. Members can express their opinion whatever it is, and can always do this by getting stuck in a debate with others.
As Habbox is a fansite for Habbo, there are a varied range of Habbo based forums also; including News and Rumours, which is the quickest way to get the breaking news on the new additions to the catalogue or the new easy way to obtain badges. There is also a split trading section where members can sell anything they desire from Habbo.com or even just ask about the origins of a certain item.
The best members from each section each month – as well as top posters – are given a prize of VIP and an award!
All the threads are looked after by Forum Moderator – if you think you’re cut out to be a moderator, check out the jobs on offer by clicking here!
The forum opened in 2004 and was run originally by Mizki and Sierk. Since then there have been a great many changes to management, structure, and the forum itself. Habbox Forum currently boasts almost 70,000 registered members (1,000 ‘active’ members), ranging from pre-teens through to those in their twenties, with almost the entirety of the member base being or having once been active Habbo Hotel users.
There have been many changes to the forum over the years – mainly minor things such as limits changing, vBulletin upgrades or small plugins being added, although a few large things have changed over the years including (but not limited to):
• New skins, especially when a new site skin is released, a new forum skin to match is released
• The introduction of Donator, VIP and VIP+ systems
• The introduction of Tokens and the Shop, where users can now buy name changes, VIP subscriptions, icons and much more
