Joe | 05-06-2014 Just keep swimming...
Being the newbie and one of the youngest, one would think it hard to fit in with such a diverse crew. One, in fact, would be wrong. Habborator is back to it's original self. Basement chats are long and busy, ideas are flying all over the shop and the updates are coming in thick and fast.
... which is perfect time to present to you our open letter for this year, written by Thantos, with some crew additions. Give it a look, some things you may agree and disagree with, that's the idea of an open letter. It's spreading nicely already, so why not have a quick read. Oh yes, the link, click me!
Anyway, back to the point, yesterday was Luucaz' birthday. Too humble to shout for himself, so I'll do it for him. Hope you had a nice day, Luuc, although you were probably working far too much as normal, but that's just you. Hope you had at least a few minutes to yourself.
Luucaz | 21-12-2013 Sodom shows up
I have nothing with the military (I did do my service year though). I have everything with Sodom’s military themed alterations, they're beyond awesome. He posted those around 2007 at skrugg.com, then vanished. I hesitated for a few years, then illegally re-posted them at our /ALT section, with a little disclaimer. Big to me, Sodom shows up few days back, found them, approved and is now able to add to it. I finally got to see his ‘Firebase extended’ in good quality.
Just go look at them.
Luucaz | 18-12-2013 New theme
So we got a new - default - theme for our front page. If you previously selected a theme, might have to clear cookies/refresh a couple of times (actually, seems not necessary, just click brown button). We needed it to reflect our current status. We're not around that much, Habbo changed, and by that our content. It's mostly about past features now. That's cool, not regretting changes, we'll focus on the past.
If that comes across as 'leaving the scene', it's not. We're not done at all. Some pages need a few final words and can by then be considered finished, no updates anymore. Others though can and should be extended, a new section is already planned, and we even added a bit of extra nostalgia to new theme (hit that sign). The wall is just there to say: at our own pace, when we get to it and when it really adds to the story. Anyway, hope you like (and a big thank-you to Star-Fighter for adding his cool pixels).
Luucaz | 30-10-2013 Ehmm..
..7 years online today. 'twas also Flamed's birthday yesterday, haven't spoken with him for a while, so hope he's doing good. Seriously, the people that got on my path because I chose to do some silly habbo site, true love.
I maybe tried to get something major done here for this occasion , didn't succeed, yet, close. Habborator = not dead yet, though awfully slow. Major being just a revamp of things, shift of focus, us doing history and such. I mean, the Habbotimes guys, they really called it quits this year. We're never gonna do that, and we're even gonna think about new projects. Because we feel there's more to it.
For now, cosmetic changes ahead. They is awesome - we twittered - but cosmetic only.
Edit: /me sounds a bit worn out, in review. Watch a 1hr positive thing in 5min, SEEED. Positive energy wins, mostly.
Luucaz | 30-10-2012 Habbo 12, us 6 - something real
October 30, 2006 we came online. And still not done. Well, not so sure we fit in nicely with recent Habbo/Sulake developments, but we still like documenting what happened inside them hotel walls over the years. And outside, for once. We now have a page on Habbo stuff in real life - we called it ‘real’. Now what shall we spend next year on?
PS. Due to huge amount of pictures needing to load, sometimes scrollbars are partly missing, it seems. Reload page once to fix. Looking for a solution. Edit: fixed, I think. If not, comment.
Luucaz | 29-10-2012 Lucky still early in Canada
..so just in time for some good wishes for Flamed, who made it through another year, and hopefully many more to come. Wishes you all the best, shiny things and more. Happy birthday !
Luucaz | 24-09-2012 Habbo Ages
It's been offline for a while, 'Habbo Ages', site made by P1ckle. A historic archive of facts and screenshots from early (UK) Habbo Hotel days. You can browse it for days and still find something you didn't know every time. With his kind permission we put it back online - http://habboages.habborator.org/. Because you look insanely good today and deserve a look!
PS. P1ckle notes the site was made way back, with MS Frontpage (I've been there too, we all start somewhere), and can be a bit messy in current browsers. Ignore, just read and check the views. At least someone took it upon him to archive all these things, so thoroughly. We learned a great deal from that site, so can you.
