Habbox Wiki is the official Wiki site created by Habbox, which aims to provide concise information about Habbo, Sulake and Habbox History. The Wiki site was officially released to the public on the 13th of February 2012 with the target of becoming an updated, accurate and comprehensive collection of articles and guides that would be available to all internet users. The encyclopaedia is run by a dedicated team of staff currently led by Content Manager, Ekelektra.
Habbox Wiki works like Wikipedia and allows members of the online community to contribute their own work to the website and also allows members to edit existing work and contribute extra information to make various resources even bigger. Users can search for any Habbo or Habbox related article on any page via the search bar and navigate to various items associated with that query; such as media, templates or articles. At present, there are 2,768 pages on the Wiki and the list is continually expanding thanks to the efforts of our many contributors.
Planning and Release
The Habbox Wiki project begun in early October 2011 and was worked on by the Habbox Content Design Department. On the 13th of January, the Habbox "general public" became aware of a new top-secret project: code-named HxW.. Soon after the rumor-mill went into overdrive and everyone was trying to guess what this new addition to Habbox was.
