HabbCrazy was founded in late 2005 by Skier and Entertain. Originally, HabbCrazy was developed for a Habbo Hotel US Help Center; Habbos Helping Habbos [HHH], as the official Help Centres' Website, which was owned by Skier.

HabbCrazy was visited several times during its time from Habbo Staff such as 0rca and Grecian9 - for these events they allowed forum users to submit questions and releasing donators and badges.

The fansite closed in 2017 after the owners did not renew the domain name, at which point the domain was bought by someone outside the HabbCrazy ownership team.

History

2005

The site was founded in 2005 with Entertain who offered to build Habbos Helping Habbos its very own website with forums included. Skier accepted originally, and the partnership worked well in initial stages. Eventually, HHH was closed, but the website continued on. A new radio was installed, a new forum and a whole new community were built. Eventually, the domain www.HabbCrazy.net was finally purchased and the site was transformed. HabbCrazy was named an Official Fansite, despite being idle for several months shortly after official launch.


2007

In April of 2007, the site was re-opened. With the help of Mazalta, A brand new radio with a higher amount of listener space was launched, along with a new vBulletin Forum, user system, goodies, and more. The site had a boom and regularly teamed up up with other Habbo organisations, created weekly radio shows, exclusive content and news, to build and improve the HabbCrazy community.

On 13 May, 2007, Habbo Hotel USA revamped their fansite program, making fansites key in the community once again, which helped to boost HabbCrazy.

The team also added a new UK owner in 2007, .:Jack120:., to help build the UK community. Moh was added as the site's official coder.

2011

In February 2011, HabbCrazy then got another US Owner, SkullArmy to help support the US fanbase.

2013

In September 2013, users first reported seeing a closure message on the HabbCrazy website. The site was shortly shut down, although the forum and site were kept live.

“We would like to thank you all for your dedication and support during the reign of HabbCrazy and all the work and time you all have put into the site. We, the HabbCrazy Owners, have decided to close the site at this time due to lack of funding and current support from the Habbo Community. We as the Owners of HabbCrazy no longer have the time necessary to put forth into the site and as you all know the site has been on a downfall for quite some time. We thank you all for sticking with us through the good and bad times at HabbCrazy and wish you all the best in your future endeavors with other fansites and your lives. This decision has been hard for us to make, however, we feel that it is time for us to close our doors and let some of the new fansites have reign over the hotel. We hope to keep in touch with as many of you as we can and wish you all the best. HabbCrazy will officially shut its doors at the end of this week.”
