What is Discord and why are you setting up a Discord server for the Habbo Avatars project?
Discord is a popular and versatile messaging platform that is already used by many existing NFT communities. The platform has specific and necessary features that will allow for successful and efficient management of the community we hope to grow.
As well as this, we see Discord as a way to separate the Habbo Avatars project from existing community issues and discussions. We don’t want to be regularly using the main Twitter account to generate and stimulate conversations about NFTs on an ongoing basis, for example.
Why aren’t you going to allow people from the Habbo community to chat in the new Discord server?
We want to ensure the conversation there is about the Habbo Avatars project, not about gameplay and community issues. Our existing social media accounts will remain the places in which we listen to you and communicate with you.
Why don’t you have an official Habbo Discord?
We don’t have an official Habbo Discord because we feel as though we already have a very efficient social media presence on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. That’s where our community tends to reside and that’s where we feel we get a good level of exposure to your needs, opinions and demands. We don’t feel there is a need to create an entirely new Discord server for the existing Habbo community, but this approach could change in the future.
Why can’t you update the community directly on the Habbo websites and on Habbo’s social media channels?
While there may be some posts we make about the Habbo Avatars project on the main Habbo social media accounts and websites, we’ve decided to keep it pretty separate from the game, initially at least. From a community perspective we feel that it’s better to keep the main social media accounts for gameplay issues, and Discord for NFT issues.
Why are you allowing collectors of these NFT projects to chat in the discord server?
Discord is an important part of communication and community building in the NFT space. NFT collectors, especially those who like to buy in bulk, often have important technical questions about NFTs and the project. In addition, the NFT collectors focus on NFT related topics in their discussions which is the goal we have for this server. The projects we whitelisted for the server were chosen for their popularity. We may add more projects to the whitelist in the future.
