How to protect yourself online
There have been a lot of issues with people getting hacked/doxxed/personal information released lately and I want to provide you guys with some techniques you can use to avoid these things happening. Unfortunately there are people out there that want to hurt us, sometimes just because we are in HDA, and those people are SCUM! If you are concerned for your safety, please speak to someone you trust as soon as possible (hi i can help you!!! :) ) otherwise, here are some techniques to avoid having your personal details accessed by losers, or if your details have already been accessed by losers, how to protect yourself further. Some of this advice might sound extreme and it may not apply to you, but if you are concerned or worried about your safety online I highly recommend following this advice!
Protect your socials!
Protecting your socials is REALLY important, chances are you have all your details on facebook for a start, let alone twitter, discord, instagram and sc. I recommend going through all your friends and followers and remove or block anyone who looks questionable, or even better, make a second facebook page that hides your last name/personal details and you can use for people you meet on the 'interwebz'. Hide all details unless your friends have added you and make your profiles private if you are concerned about randoms following you or targetting you.
Keep private details private
Don't disclose personal details to people online, does anyone know my last name? No, because that is personal and I don't want people I haven't met offline to know it. Does anyone know my address? No, because I don't want randoms showing up to my house :'). This is a personal preference that nobody should take personally I just don't want to share those details and if someone gets annoyed with me by not sharing those details chances are they want to do something with that information. If someone asks me my last name I'll give them a fake one or tell them it's none of their business. Protect your personal details like you would your bank account details.
Change your passwords!!!
Everyone already know your personal details? Change your passwords often. Protecting your accounts is paramount. Set up two factor authorisation, create an email nobody knows exists to sign up to websites that you can use to log in and use password
(Paid) VPNs are your BFF
Get a VPN and protect your location, I would highly recommend using a paid service, rather than a free one, as free versions can mine your data and use your internet connection for nasty things. Still, if you can't afford it a free VPN will still do the job but I would recommend turning it off or uninstalling it if you are doing things like internet banking or signing into your pornhub account.
Seperate yourself from the losers
Avoid those who wish to do you harm and trust your gut! If someone keeps harassing you for details like your facebook or wants your info, and won't take no for an answer, block them! You do not owe them any time or energy and if they are becoming too much to handle, talk to someone you trust to try and help deal with the situation. If it is someone in HDA please report them ASAP to a founder, nobody in HDA should be working to gather dirt or details on HDA members.
Ask for help if you need it!
If you are struggling with people harassing you or are worried about your personal safety online, in HDA, Habbo or our discord server, please contact a founder ASAP. I (vibrational) will be happy to help you protect your accounts/give you advice on how to deal with idiots. And if I have missed any other methods of keeping yourself safe online, leave a comment suggesting other method/s :)
So there is some QUALITY TEA in this confessions, which I don't want to ignore, but I also got quite a few people who were sad that they felt they didn't have any friends in HDA which is CRAZY because if you are in HDA you have THOUSANDS of friends just waiting to have a chat with you! But sometimes people can't help but feel that way which isn't crazy and I understand. So that's why I have made the first ever (that I know of) HDA FRIENDSHIP SPEED DATING !!!!! Fill out this form and you will be paired up (or grouped up!) with a bunch of like minded people in HDA. I just need you to help me spread the word so share this link far and wide in HDA and pass it onto anyone who may be feeling particularly lonely lately :3

HI XBRENDON, tbh you reminded me of this dude Ole2you back in my old agency days. i just want to know ARE YOU HIM??? - seeing double?

I like to watch porn while FTF - fkin weird man
i like when people fight in base 'cause finally i have something interesting to watch - MOM GRAB THE POPCORN
I secretly have an album on my computer dedicated to screenshots of people idling in security or training, not filling the correct stations etc. Hehe. - I’m coming for you
I like to watch people from FTB and enjoy seeing HDA fall apart while not helping - asshole
sometimes being here is hard, everyone has their best friend in hda or habbo, someone they can tell everything to. I lost that, and I feel it every day i come online and everytime i go on discord. - sad and alone
Can't be just me who's wondering how supposed engaged couple with a baby on the way will be able to support this child - I love passing judgment on situations i know nothing about!!!
omg sarah is so cutie - sarah admirer
yea i like to be the one to initiate. whisper mode to randoms gets cute and cheesy at the start to mad wild and crazy realqwik. i really be switchin from shout to whisper mode like "FILL the front please, its priority" to "ima fill you the fuck up after im dun witchu girl ;) " right there in the HDA lobby. and no one will know. - Lobby Lewdist
It feels like the longer I'm here the less friends I have. I want so badly to talk to people and make friends but I find it so difficult because all the iCs already have their friend groups. Sometimes It really hurts. - Everyone gets lonely sometimes
HDA is moving to NEOPETS!!!!
As of April 1st 2019, HDA will be leaving Habbo and migrating to Neopets. It has been a long few years for us on Habbo, but we find with flash's impending doom and Habbo not doing much to reassure us that Habbo will even be able to function by the end of the year, HDA founders have decided to leave Habbo and set up shop on Neopets!!!
All of us are really excited about moving over there. We have set up a guild where all HDA members can join, and we will have uniforms our pets will be wearing depending on our ranks. See below for all official HDA uniforms on neopets. To make it fun comment below and tell us which uniforms you think is for each division ;)
We will now be paying in Neopoints! Since the exchange rate is a bit different for ever 1c you would have gotten paid on habbo, you will get 400,000 neopoints!!!
There are so many more features at Neopets than there is at Habbo, you can create your own shop, chat on *Neoboards* play heaps of games (without being scammed!) and you can even gamble away your neopoints! (Hi, Habbo doesn't let you do THAT anymore!!!!) So clearly Neopets is the rebellious older brother of Habbo, and we are really keen to give it a shot!
To those who are saying 'WTF!? Why would I care about Neopets?! Habbo is amazing!' Well it might not even be around much longer, every reputable web organisation is moving away from Flash which is what Habbo uses to run, so Habbo might not even be useable in the next year, we need to gather on a platform that will exist for years and years and years to come because like Neopets has been around for years and years and years and yearssssssssssssss

“Honestly a lot. I have learned what it takes to look at to accept a pay badge, I have learned the roles being a pay badge admin.” - FierceWoman
“I've learned that the full FA team and all PBA have to work super hard to make sure all pay badge requests are accepted before pay so the help desk doesnt get swarmed during pay and everyones tryna do 6 things at once” - alfh2
“Just a lot of the behind the scenes of FA and what it's like to be running it.” - FranToTheSon
“I've learned that accepting pay badges is a big team effort and also without pay badge admins, it'd be really hard to give people pay so FA is a really important division.” - violaslayer

HDA Related Questions!
Going through the ranks how do you feel now at the rank you are at?
I bought straight to Presidential.
What makes you come online to work in HDA?
I love the people at HDA. They are very friendly and make me want to play Habbo more.
Tell us a small story about something that is important to you that happen in HDA.
I’ve known alfh2 before coming to HDA and one of my favourite things so far while being at HDA was watching him being promoted. Alfie is one of the hardest workers I know and watching him apply for IA, pass Trial IA, pass Trial 5iC, become Chief of IA , and now to be Head of IA has made me extremely proud of him. I know he will continue to make me proud.
Tell me about a time you faced a conflict while working as part of a team.
A big conflict with working on teams is trusting the others to do their part. When I was doing my project, three of my teammates didn’t do anything. After several reminders, they showed up to participate. However, we would have done better if they showed up earlier.
What are your strengths and weakness?
One of my strengths is my patience. I have many weaknesses, but my biggest is probably my indecisiveness.
Where do you see yourself in the year of 2019 at HDA?
I hope to see myself with more friends. I love meeting people and making friends. HDA gives me this opportunity to do so.
If you had to give a shout out to one member that you have known since you been here at HDA who it would be and why?
Before joining HDA I have met several people. All of these people were friendly. However, the one person that really made me want to join HDA was .Kahlea. Kahlea has made me feel accepted in HDA and has helped me understand HDA more. So thank you for all your support Kahlea.
What is one of the most useful things that you have learned from HDA?
One of the most useful things I’ve learned is to not be afraid to ask for help. I’ve asked for help many times. By asking, I was able to provide the correct answer and was able to do the right things.
I haven’t get along with this guy at base but I have seen him work and base on my observation he is cool to work with and at the same time fun. He is friendly specially on discord server. Have a great day ahead and I hope to this guy get more friends at base ^_^

Favorite Color- Lilac
Favorite Quote- “Get in bitch, we’re going shopping”
Question 1: How did you get interested in the blog team ?
“I never really knew much about the Blog Squad until I became Lana’s Representative if I’m being honest! I was introduced to to it and I’ve really learnt to like it!! I’m not the most creative person in the world but it’s still been enjoyable! Just kind of proof that anybody can join. :))”
Question 2: What tips do you have for people wanting to join the Blog Squad ?
“Just go for it!! We’re always happy to accept more members onto our fabulous team, and as much as we enjoy the usual posts we get, we do enjoy creativity and unique ideas so make sure to include those on your application!!”
Question 3: Out of all of the blog posts that you have seen, which one has stuck out to you the most ?
“Aaahhh, that’s a hard question since there’s so many amazing posts that have been done over time!! ;-; I think my favourite one/the one that suck out to me the most was ‘lana undercover’ if I’m being completely honest, I found it really funny and it created a lot of hype.”
Question 4: Who has been an inspiration to you in the HDA community ?
“Honestly she’s been there for me through so much and I couldn’t be more grateful. Being her rep I’ve gotten way closer to her than before and I’m so thankful for everything she’s done for me. She put up with me when I was about 12 or something and even then she still stuck up for me unlike most people back then. She’s always so kind, helpful, friendly and selfless, everything I’d want to turn out being. I honestly can’t express enough how much she’s done for me, thank you Lana xx.”
Question 5: What do you think the Blog Squad could do to have more people join this amazing team ?
“SEND THEIR PITCHES ON TIME REEEEEEE :angryface: Totally kidding, maybe, you’ll never know. Honestly I’m not really sure but I think having continuous posts would really help get people more interested, but as of right now the start of the month is normally a ghost town”

I dont think many people realise how much some iCs go through, some individuals like to put iCs down because we enforce rules and people arent ok with being called out for doing something wrong. im not trying to pick sides here but please just be a bit more considerate of the things you say about other people. theres only a certain point people can be pushed until they fall off the edge. please learn to love each other. - being an iC is hard, ok?!
Since being back from LOA I am constantly flirting with everyone. - Always Flirting XoXo
I once edited the website to say something really rude on the site, it saved accidentally then the next day someone found it, everyone was on the warpath trying to work out who did it, I admitted to it but they didn't find the other two things I saved to the site that isn't really meant to be there - I'm an artist
I'm genuinely jealous of everyone in HDA. They all look amazing and are so confident putting pictures of themselves out for everyone to see, meanwhile I look like a literal fucking potato.- You are what you eat
You made me happy. And I still care about you. You mean something to me—something I can’t really even put into words because everything seems too lame in comparison. I’ve always wanted you, even when you treat me like a friend. I want you even though you drive me freaking insane. notice me please - secret admirer
I once banged two girls in the advertiser training room - ManWhore
I am a HDA legend that spy on things happening at discord and I have not been online for a long period of time... guess who I am… - sneaky legend
Hate how you become a certain rank and every privilege comes automatically where for some people it takes months to earn those. - I’m not jealous you’re jealous
Sometimes i fake ftb when i see people in base trolling or in lobby cos i dont wanna step out and deal with them. Like i'll just watch them continue. - RR holder wanting a laugh
Hey fellow HDA Members! As i have heard, We have a Football team. With our strength and support anything is possible right? So let's make winning our first game one of them! Talking with one of our friends and fellow team member: Violaslayer & BDiego!
From what i've gotten out of his context, the team is still adjusting and working hard in their practices as said:
“i've been putting a lot of time in trying to learn how to play so hopefully we'll be able to practice together soon and have a chance at winning some games ?”
It's all great to hear and good news and it seems like our team is getting along quite nicely as it is not hard for them to make friendships and get along well:
“so it's probably going to take some time to get together but as long as we're all friends by the end of it then it doesn't matter what results we get ?”
From what i’ve heard, BDiego cares a lot about his team, teammates are slowly getting to know each other and that's what makes teams powerful and connected! Teamwork.
“I don't know many of them, but they all have an amazing vibe that makes me want to know them better.”
Caring and competitive with other teams as i hear, they win 70% of most games they play! Talk about teamwork! I bet we're not even close to excited as much as BDiego is about the next game as he is sure that we are gonna bring home a win from their next game!
Practicing as from what BDiego is that they are spontaneous with timing! They try to get as much time in to play for their home...for us!
Next game will be Saturday 9th, 2019
10:00 am - EST
3:00 pm - GMT
4:00 pm - CST
We hope to bring home a trophy soon, and that's all i have to say until the next time! Contact: charlott1626 for more info or to join!
