Rares, Rabbits & Nuts
We had an exciting weekend and I know the Rares got everyone very engaged because I added about 500 new followers on Twitter @PaulLaFo. Most of the comments were positive. We made some mistakes around timezones and we hear you clearly on that.
What was the most fun was hearing people talk about firsts for Habbo. This campaign had a lot of firsts, from the time based Rare releases to the idea of a temporary currency in Nuts. What is the most fun about this is that the ideas mostly came from Habbos.
As we all tweeted and went into the Hotels the idea about more buying power and time based rares came from Habbos. We just built on the idea and went with it. The result was exciting.
We have this crazy idea that we turn the high level direction of the site over to Habbos. You come up with the direction, the ideas and campaigns that would make the site insanely fun and we build what you want where it is practical. We call it “make Habbos the stars.” In a way, you have become the executives.
The hard part about being an executive is you want something done really fast and there is the boring details of costs, timing and other factors that slows down the deployment of great ideas. It can get frustrating. So the feedback on public rooms, forums and moderation is heard loud and clear. Getting there takes time, resources and clear communication. But keep on us!
We believe in this. We think our making you the Stars is an innovation when it comes to product method. We tweet, listen and open the communication so it is a way we all work together. And we will make mistakes. Some of it will just ok, but some of this is going to be outrageously great. So let’s get to work together and keep the feedback coming. The Easter campaign was only the first. Now on to HabboCM (aka 514)!
