Habbox Debates Leader
The Debates Leader on Habbox, established in 2010, is responsible for creating new and interesting topics both inside and outside of the Debates Forum to stimulate discussion between forum members. The role of Debates Leader is a sought after one, and Debates staff changes happen very rarely.
After the resignation of buttons from the position in early 2016, the role was left vacant. In January 2017, the task of Debates was merged by Forum Manager Chris into the responsibilities of the Forum Department. In March 2017 it was announced that the role would be restored, however the role has remained dormant.
In March 2019 it was announced that Debates would be restored under the remit of the Forum Department, negating the need for a Debates Leader. Thus, the department/role has now been subsumed into the role of Forum Manager.

From the beginning of Habbox Debates, the Debates Top Contributor was the de facto award used on the forum with varying use depending on who was Debates Leader at the time as well as forum activity. In 2015, a new collection of awards based on ideology were introduced and can be awarded outside of the official Debates Forum by the Debates Leader should an interesting exchange take place to merit so.
