The Internal Affairs team is a very elite team within the HDA, who are responsible for the maintenance of peace and discipline within the Habbo Defence Agency. These members are usually chosen through applications which are released every month by the Director of Internal Affairs and their leadership. You must be Management+ in order to apply for Internal Affairs. If you are not already in the Moderation rank, then you must go through a trial for 7 days along with a report for the same, completing some tasks presented to them, in order to be a fully fledged Internal Affairs Officer. MoD members can be IA Badge Holders, that is that they can do things which the IA can, however are not members of the Internal Affairs directly. For more information, please click here.
An official IA member, you will also have a bi-weekly report to do, which is not very difficult. An official IA member also gains the ability to log online time points as mentioned before. In both Trial IA and official IA, one must help Junior Executive members to get their pay badges, as this is a task of the Internal Affairs. You can also get Pay Badge Admin from IA, however you must do your best to earn the trust of your Director and the Director of Financial Affairs to get it. As an IA member, one is never free to be irresponsible, you must always stay on guard and ensure you do your best at whatever you are doing, because you are expected to be a role model to everyone watching. For this reason, IA members have also got a few reasons to be striked and demoted and so you know, no one gets away. With privileges, come responsibility too and that's a must to remember. Internal Affair Members (after passing the trial) have all badges upto ADM. However, if one fails their trial, you return to their old rank before being selected for Trial IA from applications.
Interview with the Director of Internal Affairs - Sans38
1. As the Director of Internal Affairs, what do you feel is the most basic thing a person within HDA must know about in terms of Internal Affairs?
Answer: Well the most basic thing for a member in HDA to know is obviously the whole code of conduct, but more specifically the whole of the official rules & Promo guide are VERY important just because right now there's a lot of members joining and the official rules and promo guide are very important for them
2. In the IA Applications, what is it that you most look for in a potential future Internal Affairs member?
Answer: Well normally when we are selecting people through our applications, Firstly, we would look if they really do understand what to do in the situational questions we have presented in the application. Then, we would look at their past activity and actually check if they seem to have potential being an IA member! We'd also make sure if they haven't received any disciplinary actions or complaints just to be a hundred percent sure of them!
3. What would you like every IA member to go through which you have gone through
but do not think a lot of IA members go through?
Answer: Well there's a lot of aspects of being an IA member, Well long ago when jujubo was our DoIA I was able to handle a double jobbing case (which is not very rare). It really helped me understand how we handled these types of cases and how IA really worked. The present IA members would have a rather less chance of handling these types of cases nowadays
4. As you know, recently your Head of IA got promoted, what are some things you want to see in your IA Leadership, that would be good for you as the Director?
Answer: Well when I was HoIA I made a LOT of mistakes and after a long time I realized that being in IA leadership is really easy if you do the job right. Being an IA leader, you just need to be unbiased, helpful, and approachable. If any member has these features, I believe they would make a great HoIA/CoIA
