Habbox News

The News Department and old Articles Department are former departments at Habbox. They provided readers with the latest news, gossip and rumours from Habbo whilst providing a level of other topics such as room reviews, real life news and interviews from Habbo Staff and Habbox members.

History

To begin with, the Articles Department and the News Department were completely separate in work and volunteers, Articles provided roles such as Interviewer, Writer or Reviewer whereas News aimed at releasing information on Habbo’s latest releases and news.

Both departments began operating in 2004 when Habbox Forum originally opened, but some articles and news bits appeared on the site in 2003; these were never posted as an official department base, nor were they posted with any set minimums like the departments had.

The News Department ran from 2004 – 2014 and over its 10-year span won awards for the best news fansite multiple times. It was also subject to radio shows such as News@Live, which took written news and became broadcast on air by a DJ. Over the years, News has taken on many views for reports, and offered different subjects throughout its time – previously, it had dedicated subjects for sports and technology whereas in its later years it also focused on the more Habbo side, bringing in room reviews, and interviews. The latter was originally done by the Articles Department, before the various closures it had.

In 2012, News took on a more personal approach and engaged the reader into the reports posted more. The manager at the time, Samanfa brought a new look to News, focusing more on the Habbo side with the use of Habbo Staff interviews and editorials. After Samanfa stepping down in early 2013, the News Department became a much quieter department, with fewer people wanting to become a News Reporter and ultimately it was in dire need of a revival, which would occur in 2014.

In 2014, the Assistant General Manager (Content), lawrawrrr overlooked the News Department and saw how much quality had declined over the years; she decided to completely overhaul and revamp it with a new, yet previously used name. She brought back the Articles Department and created a new role of ‘Team Leader’, which ex- Habbox Canada Forum Manager, Drewar undertook, he was later given the full role in helping revamp the department.
