Gorillaz arrive in the Hotel!!!

Yes after weeks of patiently waiting, the Gorillaz finally arrived in Habbo Hotel UK, to mark the ending of their around the world Habbo Hotel trip. They ventured to Hotels such as Singapore, Spain, France, and finally UK.

The Gorillaz made their stay a positive and friendly atmosphere, with hundreds of fans shouting their names. They entered the Theatredrome at first to answer a few questions the fans wished to be answered. Then they visited the 4 lucky competition winners rooms for 15 minutes and partied with them and their friends. All was moving swiftly in the Hotel, when the Gorillaz announced they had to leave. The fans smiling faces turned to frowns as the best loved band departed the Hotel.

As for me the best turn out of the whole visit was the fact that this visit will still be spoken about to this day.

"We're going through change's"
Are you a person who's on Habbo twenty four seven?
Have you noticed a few changes here and there, and wonder what they are?
Well! Recently Habbo have upgraded to Version 8! Which is mainly based on HC members. Ever since Habbo Club has been around, HC member's have been complaining that they don't get enough 'V.I.P' feature's for the £2.50 a month, Well, Habbo have decided to do something about that! Due to Version 8, Habbo Club member's now recieve an extra 400 space's on their console for friend's, Letting them have 500 in total, where as Non-HC's can only have 100, but if that isn't enough, There is a new Queue system that let's HC's get priority access to FULL public rooms, Including two HC only rooms, Called The Majestic and The House of Flying Carrots. Although, there are a few update's for Non-HCs, Such as the Habbo hand, now feature's a close button and a back and forward button, incase you fly past the item you want ;)
However, Habbo have updated their FAQs with full explenations on Version 8! So Click here (http://www.habbohotel.co.uk/habbo/en/help/faq/faq_category/?id=26) to view them ;]

Rubber Balls gone for Walkies.
Over on .com.sg some evil scammers tried to steal a truck load of the amazingly groovy rubber balls. Lucky enough, Kitty and his feline team of supercats leaped into the back of the truck. Unfortunately, the balls scattered everyone and are now loose and lost all around the Habbo Hotel Singapore Website (http://habbohotel.com.sg) .
Saffron and her team of super singapore staff are asking people to help find them, or else who knows what might happen!
They are offering a 20 credits reward and a pet food deal package.
Once you've found some send it in HERE (http://habbohotel.com.sg/habbo/en/community/competition?id=89).
Good luck, and god bless you!

habbo[x] name - ITSMEPRANK1

entry as you may know the v8 came out on the 13th of september there are some good points with it but some bad so here are some.(good points) I think v8 is good because its makes hc a lot better like having 2 new public rooms, Lots more dances and you can buy more hc for cheaper like 1 month 25 creds 3 months 60 creds 6 months 105 cred thats better value. Also it have a queue system which tell you how long you need to wait to get in a public room. (Bad Things). You can't have so much people on your consle, hc 500 ,non hc is about 100. Its is a little bit slower. Overall i would give it a thumbs up but something a thumbs down.

Fansite Month...Been and gone!

The eagerly anticipated fansite month is here, and has unfortunately....finished. Throughout the month of May, the official fansites (http://www.habbohotel.co.uk/habbo/en/community/fansites/) organised competitions, quests, meet the staff events, games, you guessed it, everything habbo UK had to offer!

Most fansites decided to take a few chosen days to host their events, for example, V-Habbo began the first day with 'Tag' in the Theatredrome, which didn't run too smoothly, as people kept saying they were not out. So one of the V-Habbo decided to hold competitions in his room, which worked out well.

As the days and weeks drifted on, numerous quests were posted on the habbo homepage, giving everyone a chance to give them a go. Overall, these quests were challenging and fun, but there was just the problem of... mazes. 25 habbos in one room, trying to get to the next room to find a clue. It was a nightmare, with people calling for help, because someone was blocking.
Looking past that, however, some organised events on the calendar, were not held on the due time and date, and were held later on in the month.

Fortunately, by the end of July, there were many happy habbos with many good prizes, and the fansite staff were utterly exhausted! On May 31st, an event to mark the end of Fansite month was held in the Theatredrome, with the last prizes being dished out. If you missed it, then hit yourself! You missed a great event on habbo! If ever there was an awards show for the best event of the year, Fansite Month, May 2005 would be the winner.

Only a compartively short time after the last major Habbo upgrade, another release has been unvailed to UK as one of it's first testing hotels. Enter the Wacky and Wonderful World of Habbo Version 8!

Well, over the last week a lot of things have changed in the world of Habbo Hotel, well at least on the UK's one! Only a compartively short time after the last major Habbo upgrade, another release has been unvailed to UK as one of it's first testing hotels. Enter the Wacky and Wonderful World of Habbo Version 8! Welcome to Habbo's only full overview of the amazing new features we have now received - but of course every story has another side, so included are some of the not so good things it has brought us, but remember, it's completely exclusive to Habbox!

When you read on your will find a title for each feature, follwed by an in-depth description of what it does!

New HC Only Public Spaces

Quite a lot of the new enhancements in v8 are for only Habbo Club members, and this is possibly the best one of them all - enter HC-Only public rooms. These are really good, and are some of the best public room designs to date! They are rather dramatically named House of Flying Carrots and The Majestic.

House of Flying Carrots

The Majestic

Habbo Club Queueing System

Now when you try to enter a full public room, you are presented with a loading room dialog, which contains where you are int he queue. This works out well if you are in the Habbo Club, as you have priority over normal members, but if you have deicded not to purchase club time, you are very unlikely to get into full rooms.

Dramatically Improved Habbo ID System

The layout of the Habbo ID dialog has changed dramatically. It is now clearly layed out and set up far better for people that are new to Habbo. The Habbo registtration system has also changed with it.

The Completed Habbo Purse

Now, the Habbo Purse has been improved massively so it allow you to check how much camera film you ahve and also the number of tickets you have for public rooms games. This has been wanted for a long time, and is very useful.


A Better Way to Carry your Furni

Habbo have greatly improved the hand. Say goodbye to clicking the hand by mistake when you are trying to pick something up, and it closing itself - now it can only be closed by the close button.

To navigate through the hand there are now left and right arrows, so if you miss and item you can go back!


Better Dances for HC's

HC's now have 4 new dances to enjoy and non-HC's are left with the dated Dance button!

The Rollie – For those who love Moonwalking!
Duck Funk – For the cool & casual dancer
Pogo Mongo – Something for the flamboyant and energetic Habbos!
Hab-Hop – The original, tradional and all-time classic dance.


An To-be-Honest Unfair Console

Now the otherwise unchanged Habbo COnsole has been updated. Now HC's can only have 500 friends and non-HC's are limited to 100. If you try to accept or send a request and the list is full, you get a popup asking you to delete some friends.

Overall, V8 is full of pro's and cons! Well, enjoy the new features, and wait til later for some far more suttle changes, like different TV programs. Remember, Habbo never stops!

I assume I can enter, as I am only a trialist. I spent an incredibly long time on this report, so I hope it is agknowledged
