    That is def weird, it seems to suggest they're not just banning accounts that haven't logged in since X date (which would be the easy way of doing it) but waiting until someone DOES try to get on it... Laura's explanation with GDPR makes sense but then why not just delete/ban things automatically after a certain time and why give "bad behaviour" as a reason, confusing

    Yeah it is weird. I found it weirder that I logged into some IDs via web browser and some via the app and the app ones weren't banned (apart from 1 but I'm unsure if I logged onto it via web browser at first). Also some accounts that didn't get banned are older than the ones that did get banned.

    They've done the same to other accounts I had on other hotels as well.

    I imagine banning old inactive accounts also stops people buying/selling them. I guess with the uprising of Habbo players they may have had an increase in this kind of naughty activity

    Potentially! I only found them as I looked through an old laptop's harddrive. I've looked at the harddrive before but never found those accounts, wish I'd have found them earlier haha. Found all my old Habbox graphics, my chibis, enlargements and some old screenshots of the Habbox site itself so at least it wasn't pointless. I'll just keep trying to gain access via the help tool unless they delete them then that's fine.
