  • Swimwear and effects are not allowed to be worn by anyone in the HQ or lobby.


Section 1.2: Regulations for Room Rights (RR) Holders

The purpose of having room rights is to moderate the SWAT HQ and to ensure problems are resolved in a timely manner. Those members who have room rights should only place furnis or make necessary changes in the HQ when approved by a member of OOA+. The following changes are allowed to be made within HQ:

  • Changing or adding wired, for example, if it is broken or requires updating.
  • Replacing accidentally ejected furnis.
  • Vendors can be placed for a few seconds to get a hand item, however they must be picked up afterwards.

Room Rights holders should make sure to follow the following regulations, as they risk having their RR revoked by Foundation if they are being violated. Do not:

  • Use Room Rights for enjoyment
  • Unnecessarily flag people
    • Warn before flagging (e.g. if someone is idle at a station).
  • Move furnis without permission by a member of Foundation.
  • Place kicking furni (e.g. cannons).

  • If there has been an incident of an Admin violating the given RR Regulations it can be reported to a member of Foundation.
  • Once raised, Foundation will investigate the report and will revoke or suspend the Room Rights at their discretion.
  • If the Room Rights has been removed, Foundation will let the affected know why and for how long.


Section 1.3: Help Desk Rules

The help desk is run by Secretary+. SWAT members who have questions or are in need of help can approach the help desk to be assisted. The desk can also be a place to give suggestions and ideas to help improve SWAT.

Where the Secretary is also a vacancy or on a leave of absence, a member of the Office of Administration shall assume duties of the unit until either the Secretary or Director returns from their leave of absence or is appointed.


Section 5: Alt Accounts

The purpose of alt accounts is if you are unable to access your main account for any reason or to assist with the population of SWAT.

  • Verification of alts must be verified either by informing a member of Cabinet+ on your main account or my private messaging one on the forum. They will then add your Habbo name and alt to the verified alt list maintained by the Chief Administrative Officer.
  • Alts must have the same motto as your main account unless assisting with population, then [SWAT] Field Agent [Your Tag] must be used.
  • Alts must wear the SWAT badge owned by jmmey321, unless they are ranking Intel.+ and unable to access their main account for 48+ hours, then the Intel. badge will be granted for that time and removed once able to access their main account.

    • If a member goes inactive for 7 or more days and does not have a valid LOA.
  • Notes for Cabinet+:
    • Reimbursement:
      • Please ensure you create a daily pay log when/if you do pay so that a record is kept up to date on how many coins are owed.
      • 15 minutes must pass after asking if a member of Foundation or Office of Administration is available before paying out of their own coins. If they pay before the 15 minutes are up, they will not be reimbursed.
      • Cabinet+ must double check previous daily pay logs for that day before payment is given to members to ensure that double pay is not given. If pay is given twice to a member, the Cabinet+ will not be reimbursed for this double pay given.
      • 1c exchange will be reimbursed for every 10c paid out to members. For example, if you have paid 37c to members, 4c will be given as the exchange cost - even if you use diamonds to exchange these coins. To make sure you do not lose out on coins, buy the 10c Bronze Coin Bundle (Worth 10 Credits) and keep any leftovers for the next time you do pay.
    • Cabinet+ should double check members do not have any agency badges other than SWAT before paying them.
  • Please note you should request the Daily Pay badge that is located in the HQ and have it approved by a Cabinet+ in order to obtain daily pay.
  • Cabinet+ should request the Adm. Pay badge and have it approved by an OOA+ in order to obtain daily pay.


Section 7.1: Pay Ban

If a member leaves within the first 30 minutes of collecting pay, they will be put on the pay ban list which would last for the entire next day after ban.

  • As long as the person is in base (i.e. working or in the café area), they would not be put on the pay ban list. They would be put on the list if they are in FTB or go offline straight away.
  • It is up to the Cabinet+ member who gave out the pay to keep an eye on those members who leaves and add them to the list.
  • The pay ban list will be edited as and when necessary by all Cabinet+. Note that we can see when/who changes the list!
  • The pay ban list can be found by clicking here.
