Hope everybodies making an easy transition from quarantining to now having to attend classes!
There’s been some changes lately and we wanted to keep you all informed, including: staff changes, GOTW changes, and room ad changes.
As usual, our trial moderators have taken the time to learn the ropes of being Habboon Staff. We recently just promoted them all to being Moderators:
On top of that, we’ve recently promoted some promising staff members to be a part of the newly formed Administration team:
Then, another staff member to be a Community Leader:
If you see any on client or on Discord, send them a congratulations!
As for future trial moderators (assuming we’ll get the question so I’ll pop it in here), it’s unclear when another batch will be hired. Make yourself noticeable & if you’ve applied previously, we’ll look through those in the future.
After some careful discussion, we’ve changed up some of the GOTW rules to be more accommodating for others and hopefully help out the system better.
Users that are offline are to be declined from the event hotel alert list and users that are AFK are given only one skip. If someone is skipped and alerted once, then they will be declined after if no word comes back from them
All users are given a 10 minute grace period from when they are alerted to host. If they do not respond after 10 minutes, they will be skipped or declined.
If users are being rude/negative towards hosts, other players or staff in an event hotel alerted event, those users can be issued: a warning and then a one hour room ban.
Player Strikes: Users who are repeat offenders getting player striked for behaviour risk their strike being carried over to the next week if their behaviour in events do not improve. If after this, the users continue with negative behaviour, an issue of an account ban can be put into place.
Players who exit during events with the intention of letting a friend win the game will be disqualified. This doesn’t mean everyone who exits during events will be DQ’d -- just the people who are actively trying to help people win events by leaving the game intentionally. An example of this is leaving during 1v1 final -- if the user wanted to leave the game, why didn’t they leave beforehand?
Player strikes are now changed from 3 to 2. Users with a first strike will not be able to place in the GOTW article and users with a second strike will disallow them from participating in any event hotel alerted event.
Users who “nag” staff members or ask more than one staff member continuously to supervise their events will be given a warning if they continue to ask. They also run the risk of being removed from the list (if they are on it) which will happen if they continue after the warning.
After experiencing a lot of difficulties with room ads, we’ve gone ahead and made a room ad guide for users!
In the guide, you’ll find instructions on how to use room ads, when we accept and decline room ad rights tickets and when to know when you are abusing them.
We’ve changed it so all users can only get 20 room ads per week (unless Administration has given approval).
