During 2001 - 2002, this is what each Habbo's profile would have looked
Notice that the face avatar is in greyscale.
Habbo UK also once had a profile match with your own.
It was also possible to send SMS via the Habbo console, this was removed
in late 2002. The reason for it being removed was because during 2002,
it was possible via scripting, to obtain people's cell/mobile phone
numbers that were associated with each habbo's account for the SMS
HABBO HOTEL™ /Sulake hastily removed this service.
also possible to create habbo names using the characters (< _ + *>) but
this was removed in late 2002 also, as people were having problems using
the SMS service to buy credits for their account.
As you can see, some people such as 'Agent' and 'Alinda'
that joined HABBO HOTEL™ UK during the public BETA in 2001 haven't logged
on since the February that year!
The layout of the console has
remained rather similar, however many features have been added and
removed. The habbo console is long overdue a graphic update.
During 2001 - 2003, it was only possible to trade 6
items of furniture at once. The hobbas during this period were relied
upon to perform a moderated trade for trading more than 6 items at a
In Q2 2003 they addressed this issue and allowed for
stacked trading of any amount, so long as it is the same type of furniture.
More information about the past command buttons is displayed below:
As you can see below, the small profile displayed upon
clicking on a Habbo has changed a lot.
BETA - KULTAKALA™ 2001: The caption box with
the Habbo's name in was smaller and more rectangular, also people
could make really long Habbo names, therefore it wouldn't fit in the
box. Habbos had command buttons to kick, grant rights and delete
their own furniture with the introduction of private rooms. Habbos
could also dance.
Early 2001 - Late 2002:
The caption box was increased in size to accommodate longer names,
it was also rounded at the edges to portray a more 'cleaner'
circular style. Habbo names were no longer
Waving wasn't possible until October 2002 without scripting.
At this time period any Habbo with rights in a room had the power to
grant rights to any other Habbo without being the owner. As you
could imagine, this was a disaster and led to ALOT of room trashing!
Late 2002 - Late 2007: The caption box was
coloured grey and the name of the Habbo is now a light grey rather
than white. The 'mission' or rather recently the 'motto' of the
habbo has returned to a lighter shade font instead of grey. The
'Wave' command was added around October 2002. (New dance styles and the badge system were introduced much later in
'Release 8.0' during 2005.)
Late 2007 onwards: The classic tile style profile has been dropped
completely and has now been replaced by the newer 'Inf-O-Matic'.
This newer style of profile was initiated to facilitate for the new
Habbo Homes and tag system as well as allow more space for Habbo
command buttons and 'mottos'.
