This is your final chance to merge all of your Habbo accounts into one, don’t leave it too late or you may lose your account!
You may remember around this time last year, a magical thing began to happen in Habbo. This magical thing, was the great ‘Habbo Merge‘, and it caused about as many problems as it solved when it first began. We had Habbos confusing their ID passwords with their Habbo passwords, or merging the wrong accounts, then wanting to un-merge them. It’s pretty safe to say the poor Habbo Staff were probably bombarded with more questions about the merge than anything else!
If you’ve no idea what the ‘Habbo Merge’ is, it’s probably because you created your account after the merge began, or your original account was made on Habbo.com, so you had nothing to worry about, lucky thing. It wasn’t as easy for the Habbos who had accounts on Habbo.co.uk, Habbo.com.au, Habbo.com.sg and Habbo.ca however, they had to go through all the confusion and mind boggling problems that came with merging 5 different Hotels together. There were users who’d had unique names on both Hotels, so there was question as to who got to keep the original name, but in the end it all seemed to work out, as everything seems back to normal now.
In fact, everything worked out so well that Habbo feel it’s time to end the whole merging process. This means that after March 30th, you will no longer be able to merge any accounts from other Hotels. If you’ve got unmerged accounts with furniture on them, it’s time for you to merge them, or you’ll lose your furniture and your account after the above date. Maybe you’ve been holding off merging because you’ve forgotten the password to your account, but now really is the time to either rack your mind for your password, or click the ‘Forgotten your password?’ link. Unsure of how to merge? Simply head over to the Habbo site you originally registered with, and click on the button, ‘Activate My Existing Account’, a few simple steps, and you’ll be all merged in no time.
Don’t leave it too late, remember you have until March 30th, that means 1 week and 1 day!

When I finally realized what I had, it had gone and was far away.
This is the sign of our friendship, he said. On the tip of his index finger rested a black butterfly. Perhaps not wholly black, for it gleamed a burnt purple under the bright winter sun.
Whenever you see this butterfly please think of me.
I nodded and tried vainly to smile through my tears.
Let your heart whisper to it, for hope that one of them will survive all the dangers, and come at last to me. In my dreams it will tell me of you.
He held my shoulder and pressed me close. I smelt the musky white scent of his shampoo and soap combined and dried my eyes on his jacket. Gently he pulled away. Gently he took hold of its wings and pulled it from him. Purplish scales stuck to his fingers, but he took no notice.
He transferred the creature to my shaking palm, where it unfolded its black velvet wings. So fragile, so small. The merest closing of a fist would crush it forever.
Pressing his lips to my forehead, he smiled sadly and quietly said goodbye. I nodded mechanically; transfixed by the burden such a little creature would have to bear.
The door closed with a snap. I opened the window and watched him walk down the path. I prayed that he would come back to me one day.
I’ll always come back to you.
Its heart-shaped wings trembled as a gust of breeze took it through the window, but my gaze lingered on his disappearing shadow. Something welled up inside me and a tear rolled down my cheek.
Don’t cry… I’m always with you.
When I finally realized what I had, he had gone and was far away.
