So to avoid having you wait in vain, we have some good news to share!
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.

Although admittedly, this process is always quite hectic, this week has been hectic times ten.
Maybe it’s because it’s a shorter work week, or perhaps it’s that spring truly is in the Helsinki air, but I’m telling you… something’s clearly going on over there, and I suspect, between you guys and I, that someone’s gone completely nuts.
Everywhere I look, there are squirrels and rabbits and.. nuts. Every conversation I’m having, there are squirrels and rabbits and… NUTS! This has lead me to reach the following conclusion: we can expect a lot of Nuts this Easter!
Here are some “loose ends” that I can share before Wednesday:
