Forum Rules

General Forum Rules:


A1. Respect other forum members ~ Forum members are to be respectful of others at all times. Bullying and victimising will not be tolerated on the forum and attempting to cause arguments among others is not permitted. Disagreement of opinions is often the main source of arguing and therefore any comments or insults that directly offend a user on a personal level will be removed.

A2. Do not post inappropriately ~ Habbox Forum has an audience that includes younger members, and as such all content must be suitable for those members. You must not post images, videos or links with inappropriate content like gore, nudity or any topics deemed offensive. Mildly inappropriate content (never anything rated 18+) is allowed where sufficient warning is added into the post and any image or link is placed within a badspoiler tag. The final decision on what is or is not inappropriate is at Moderator's discretion.

A3. Do not avoid the forum filter ~ Mild swearing is allowed on the Forum however is limited to certain words. Click here to see what is and isn't acceptable. Purposely avoiding the forum filter is not allowed and adding single letters so that users can clearly recognise what the filtered word is (such as "t***") is an example of this rule break. Any swear words that are used to attack or insult users will be removed as a breach of rule A1. Users can turn off the forum filter by following these instructions: (UserCP > Edit Profile > Edit Profanity Filter). To find out about posting videos with swearing please refer to this announcement.

A4. Do not accuse others of scamming or hacking or any illegal activity without evidence ~ making baseless accusations leads to arguments and often members being targeted, as well as being illegal itself in many countries. We do not allow you to accuse anyone of hacking, scamming or activities which break the Habbo Way without legitimate evidence. All evidence is to be submitted to a Super Moderator or member of Forum Management before being posted. If evidence is not provided or deemed to be fake or insufficient then any posts or threads regarding that topic will be removed.

Accusing others of breaking national law is not allowed: defamation and libel will not be tolerated on Habbox, and any serious claims of a member breaking the law of their country or that of Habbox's base (the United Kingdom) should be forwarded immediately to the General Manager, lawrawrrr who will assess claims and take it forward with the relevant authorities if necessary. Posting "evidence" of claims without first speaking to the General Manager may result in an infraction or warning, or further (if your post is defamatory or libellous). Such laws include (but are not limited to):
  • Paedophilia and child sex laws
  • Copyright law
  • Pirating software and files
  • Revenge pornography

A5. Do not post private details or information ~ We do not allow you to post private information about yourself due to security concerns. Disclosing any information about another forum user without their consent is also not allowed. This includes:
  • Private messages relating to Staff issues or details regarding staff-only matters**
  • Private conversations where no consent from all parties is provided (both from the forum and / or other platforms)
  • Images / videos of the user or links to a page where an image/video of another user is located (this includes social networking sites, facebook, myspace etc)
  • It is also not allowed to give out the personal details (specific address, phone number etc) of anyone, forum user or otherwise.

** Information regarding warnings, infractions and/or dismissal reasons are deemed confidential and will not be disclosed by Moderators or Management. If recipients choose to share details regarding any disciplinary action, then the confidentiality is considered broken and Moderators or Management are allowed to share information/comment on the issue. Additionally, you are allowed to post pictures of yourself and use them as your profile picture, avatar and as a signature image. You may also share your email address and social networking profiles on the forum.

A6. Do not use this forum for any illegal practices, including but not limited to:
  • Being involved in hacking or encouraging hacking
  • Breaking of the Habbo Way or encouraging T&C violation
  • Posting warez, illegal torrents, illegal streams or other illegal downloads
  • Anything highlighted in rule A4

A7. Do not post pointlessly ~ The pointless posting rule is a more flexible rule at Habbox as discussion is encouraged in all threads, even if that means the original point of the thread is sometimes deviated from somewhat. However please observe there are times where the pointless posting rule applies, for example it is not allowed to post random, meaningless, posts or threads on the forum. Examples of this are (ROFLCOPTER!!!!!!); (BYRDSB +HKK; ) (I am a plane). Please also note that the final decision on whether a post or thread is or is not pointless is at Moderator's discretion.

A8. Leave moderating to the moderators ~ If you see someone breaking a rule, click the report post icon on that post with and provide a brief description. You must not post a reply to tell another member that they have broken the rule, however if you find a thread which has already been posted then you MAY reply with a link to that thread however your post must also contain something which is relevant and on topic to the threads subject.

You should also never ignore a moderators warning, change their warnings, open a thread they have closed or use the Moderator Specific BBcode ([modwarn]). This is considered 'Abuse of Moderator Features'. Editing a moderators warning or opening a close thread will result in a private message being sent, while using the moderator warning tags out of the blue will result in an infraction without any prior warning.

A9. Please do not post links to Internet Marketing which you involves your gain at the expense of our members ~ Referral marketing is a method of internet marketing that relies on gaining new customers by referrals, usually through word of mouth. Referrals can be an annoyance for members, and therefore they are not allowed, they are also not allowed in signatures. This rule also covers sites which pay you per click on certain links.

    Forum Specific Rules

    Some forums have specific rules to follow. You can see them in an announcement or stickied thread in that forum/category. The following are some forum-specific rules that you should be aware of:

    Trading Rules
    Graphics Rules
    Welcome To Habbox Forum
    Debates Forum

    Prize Collection Rule

    We are now enforcing a prize collection rule across all competitions and events run by Habbox (either by General Management or Habbox Departments). This rule means that any winners of these competitions/events that have Habbo credits as the prize will have two months to claim it. If they fail to claim the prize after two months then that prize will be considered a donation to Habbox.

    Minor competitions/events such as individual Habbox Events and on-air competitions are organised by individual hosts, who are responsible for their own prize. If you have problems collecting those prizes please contact the relevant department manager or Assistant General Manager (Community).

    We feel that two months is long enough and should give plenty of time to the winners to get in touch with Habbox. The organisers of each event will contact you and inform you that you have won the prize when the winners have been announced.

    If you haven't had official confirmation either by a Private Message (PM) or an official thread announcing your win, then please contact the Assistant General Manager (Community). This is currently: Absently.

    Note: The two months start from the date the winners have been announced or contacted.
