Habbo Hotel Happenings Wednesday 31st October 2001
SPOOKY GOINGS ON...
What a wild, wicked lot you are! Here we are on All Hallows' Eve and there is a gory glut of creepy rooms and clever costumes. I've met Habbos in scary get-ups (Frankenstein's monster, vampires and ghosts), Habbos as famous people, Habbos as cartoon characters (Tintin you know who you are!) and many more too numerous to mention. And you've used our special Halloween items to great effect too. Search on 'Halloween' to see some fab themed rooms. The screenie above is a classic - 'PUMPKINofBOB'! BTW - please remember that if you're trading Halloween items that they'll disappear from the hotel (and that includes Hands and all rooms) on November 15th. Any of you spot me today? I was Princess Leia earlier and now I'm ever so pale and anaemic looking...
Another scam to watch out for I'm afraid. This one is quite cunning, but once you've all read this the scammers will be thwarted. Bwahahahaha!
The scammer sends an email to you from firstname.lastname@example.org. It says that your Habbo account has been hacked and asks for your details, including your password. The email is signed 'Cindy (head hobba)'. THIS EMAIL IS NOT FROM CINDY OR ANYONE AT HABBO HOTEL. Do not answer it - delete it. Of course, you all know that you should never give out your password (I've told you enough times). But how did the scammers find out your email address? You must have given it out in the hotel, which I have also told you thousands of times not to do.
So, three things to remember:
1. If you get the email, do not answer it - delete it
2. Never give out your password
3. Never give out your email address
There are thousands and thousands and thousands (you get the idea...) of you Habbos hanging out in the hotel. Good stuff. Most of you have a private room or two. Also good. But all these rooms have put the Hotel Navigator on a go slow. Not so good. You might have noticed when you search that it seems to take forever. To get the Navigator all whizzy again, we need to do a little housekeeping and close the sad, folorn empty rooms. So, if you've got a completely empty room - no furni, no wallpaper, no floor, no nuffin - either bung something in it, or watch it disapear in front of your very eyes next Thursday (November 8).
Thanks peeps :)
That's all from me this week - if you've got any ideas about what you'd like to see in the hotel, or any comments on this newsletter, please email me.
