By popular demand we`ve brought back events. Here's all you need to know to make your room event stand out from the rest.
How do I promote my room event?
When in one of your rooms, you'll find a bar to the far right of your screen below the Room info and Help buttons, called "Promote Room". Clicking this will take you to the shop where you can name your event and describe it. Once you´ve filled in all you want people to know about your event and have paid, your room will appear in the new navigator under the tab "Promoted" for all the world to see!
Events used to be free! Why do we have to pay for them now?
We want to make sure the Navigator is filled with lots of high quality rooms. When we had events (or Promoted Rooms) in the past, some habbos would create multiple accounts and listings to increase their visibility. By charging duckets per two-hour promotion we have encouraged those users to focus and promote a single event, which means less spam and more visitors. Those who choose to promote their rooms now are receiving better value for the hard work it took to create their event.
What if I want to promote my room event for longer? Can I buy more hours of visibility?
Yes. You can buy more hours of room navigator visibility by repeating the above process, i.e. buying 2 hours more each time.
Is there a limit to how many times I can buy hours of room visibility?
Not at the moment. However this may be subject to change, so make sure you check back here regularly for updates.
How can I check for how much longer my room will be visible in the navigator?
The category "Events" lists all the rooms that are currently being promoted and the length of time they have left in the Promoted section. Rooms are ranked by how much time they have left, so e.g. if your room has 85 minutes left and every other promoted room less than that, yours will go on top, whereas a room with only a minute left to go, will be at the very bottom of the list.
What if I run out of room visibility time? What happens to my room?
It will disappear from the Events category.
Are promoted rooms moderated?
You bet they are. Promoted rooms are moderated just like any other area in the hotel, so make sure your room event is Habbo-friendly ;)
