Habbox was founded in the Summer of 2003 by Mizki. Habbox started out as a small project for Mizki but she soon started to realise that she needed other people to help her with the site. This is where Sierk came to learn of Habbox and he and Mizki soon became good friends. As Sierk took more of a development role for the site, he was then handed the reins and eventually full ownership of the site, where he has stayed ever since. In late 2009 Jin became Co-Owner of Habbox after many years working at the site, as Sierk no longer took an active role in the running of Habbox. Habbox consists of Habbox.com, Habbox Forum and new to 2012, Habbox Wiki.
Habbox is run by a team of staff across many departments. The co-owners Sierk (Co-Owner) and Jin (Co-Owner) are largely inactive and the management of the site is done by the three General Managers, lawrawrrr (Site), ozad (Campaigns) and FlyingJesus (Community).
Departments at Habbox
The Habbox has several departments without which it would not be able to operate, as each department fulfils a key role within the collective. The departments include; the Help Desk, Events, Rare Values, Competitions, Content Design (and Site Coders), Forum Moderators, Articles, Graphics and HabboxLive. Although each department does not have the same involvement with Habbox and Habbo, the site could not run without each one. There is a large team of dedicated staff between the departments, overseen by the department managers and General Management. You can find out more about each department by visiting the Habbox Departments page.
Official Habbo badge events
Like other official fansites, Habbox has had the chance over the years to run official badge events on the hotel. The Room Builders department builds the games, while the Graphics staff create badges. Below you can see a list of events run by Habbox:
Discontinued Habbox Projects / Sites
Habbox has had many large scale projects and departments, whilst popular in the past, many of these services no longer serve a good role within Habbox. These range from old versions and skins to entire departments which were discontinued mainly due to the lack of demand from the Habbo public, or to be upgraded into bigger and better options. The full list of discontinued Habbox Projects can be seen on the Habbox Websites page.
