Staffing change

This announcement is a little late; but better late than never, eh?
Q, and weix2 have been made fully-fledged AHHH staff for their commitment and consistency. Welcome again to the team and congratulations!

The Briar Patch Story

Not Habbo-related, but definitely something that matters to me: the Briar Patch Story. The first time I read this, I cried.
If you're gonna take on the responsibility for someone, take it all the way. You don't get to give up on animals or people halfway; that's just not on. I'm not the best person in the world when it comes to committing to things, but at least I'm always there for the ones I love.

Amazing Grace

As always, I am amazed and humbled by the grace that has been given to me so freely. I don't consider that I've done anything so special that I deserve the honour and love I have received; I believe I just do what is due to my roles as moderator and friend. (Yes, I am aware they are separate things. :) And I keep them separate.)

You know who you are.

I'm grateful.

Some notes on AHHH

MOD-Appledoe / Appledoe - Owner
Twofold - Team Leader
Callum - Events Organiser

Staff, in alphabetical order:

New members undergoing trials:

TwoFold and Callum are jointly in charge of the first round of public applications.
Stpippen and T are currently organizing our party to celebrate hitting our 100th registered forum user. (Friday 15th April 2005, 2000h SG time!)

Some thoughts on AHHH's staffing and structure:
AHHH has a relatively flat organizational structure by design. Unlike most helpdesks, we don't generally have a complex hierarchy because
1) I don't believe Habbo Hotel SG has so many Habbos and therefore helpers that we need it;
2) we want to encourage AHHH staff to think of themselves and fellow members as equally valuable;
3) I personally believe lots of ranks encourage politicking, and I would like to minimize that! :)

All AHHH staff are perfectly welcome to make suggestions to TwoFold, Callum, myself, or even by post to the forum. Ideas for parties (I love parties!), ways to better AHHH or the forums, anything! For that matter, if you have an event or idea for us, please feel free to inform any AHHH staff member!

At the moment, we also intend to keep AHHH small. This allows us to spend more time helping Habbos and chilling with them, rather than doing administration. I would like to believe that this also allows us to exercise tight quality control. I'd rather have a small handful I can trust than to accept a larger group and have to kick people out of the team!
