    Default POOLS CLOSED(the epic adventures of 4chan)

    The story of habbo hotel vs 4chan.

    Habbo hotel: Virtual reality hotel. A giant chatroom, if you will.

    Habbo ~ Habbo USA

    4chan: A message board that is the pit of the internet. Literally. Everything and anything can be found there concerning images, dubbed by the internet: "The worlds most NSFW website".

    4chan is notorious. They often raid other forums, and effectively FLOOD chatrooms/servers/whatever. Also known as /b/tards(The /b/ stands for a section in 4chan, also known as "random images"), these select forum assailants use evil tactics against popular websites including:

    Ebaumsworld
    YTMND
    Habbohotel(as seen here in this story)
    Somethingaweful

    and others.

    When assaulting the hotel, they made what they called "nigras". Characters dressed up in all black tux, pants and afro. AKA: "the /b/lockers."

Upset Habbo users will beg /b/lockers to move, only to be told that "Pool's closed. Due to AIDS!"

    On July 6, 2006 in the wee hours of the morning, a massive coordinated Habbo invasion of over 10 nations world-wide commenced, effectivly closing down Habbo pools all over the planet for one glorious night. This event is now known as Pool's Closed : World Tour. [9] The acronym for this, if it is not obvious, is PCWT. [10]

    On July 12, 2006, at 10:00 EST, the second largest organized Habbo raid, or rather, the second largest organized raid in its history by /b/ took place. Because the pool area filled up so quickly, /b/lockers spread to all areas of the Habbosphere. There were so many /b/lockers that every single public room was blocked and many private rooms were invaded as well. Due to the efforts of the /b/lockers, the entire Hotel was effectively shut down. As an after-effect of the huge raid, the word AIDS is now banned on Habbo.

    Also, the Habbo Hotel forums temporarly shut down it's registering feature (required so you can actually post and view the forums) and the error message that was put up (and we kid you not) was "Sorry, Pool's closed. "

    Almost everyday since the July 12 raid there are always small raids done by individuals who block the pool and make life hard for Habbo players.

    After the July 12 raid it became common place for small number of Nigras to raid the pool even though their was no organized raid and skermish with the mods while finding new ways how to counter the mods tactics.

    On July 26, 2006, at 7:00 EST, Habbo Hotel was going to show an exclusive advanced screen of Ultimate Avengers 2 in the Theaterdome. Hours in advance, /b/tards flooded the Theaterdome, blocking off the stage and taking all the seats in an effort to fill up the room in advance, so legit Habbo users could not watch the screen. At around 4pm, EST, the Habbo staff closed down the room and made it so only Habbo Club Members could join the room, thus limiting it to the few Habbo users who actually pay for that. Habbo users actually attempted to spam /b/ with relatively pathetic insults. Their posts either were driven to the bottom pages through the insane speed of /b/, or ridiculed with ease by /b/tards.

    On Augest 12, 2006, the day known as the '24 Hour Fools Raid' happened. The name is explained later. Many /b/tards were again attracted to Habbo, not because of a planned raid, but because the mods were attempting to use reverse psychology on the small group of raiders in the pool area posting notices, with the messages "we're loving the free publicity, thanks", "thank you 'raiders' for the publicity!", "join and dance with them ", "EMBRACE the LAME raiders" and the famous "Stay 24 hours, out advertisers need the numbers " Now sanctioned by the moderators to block and spam, the small regiment of ****rs posted these messages on /b/ and a hasty invasion force was assembled able to overwhelm the pool deck, and other protions of the hotel. The moderators held their end of the bargin expecting the raiders to get tired and leave on their own, but after 2 straight hours of constant blocking and spamming, the Moderators relented and banned all the raiders. This raid sent a message to the mods of Habbo that the nigras were here to stay and no quater would be given.

    Another epic raid happened on September 11, 2006. It was the first offical joint effort between 4chan, eBaums World, YTMND, Something Awful, Gaia Online, Newgrounds and several smaller sites, but the mainstay of the invasion force was from 4chan. It was estimated that over 5000 individual users took part in the raid and blocked every area of Habbo Hotel. At the pinicle of the pool raid, the line to the pool deck was over 600 long.

    The September 11 raid also introduced the latest model of the /b/tards since creation of the Nigra. The Steve Irwin. This model had tan shirt, shorts and hair similar to Steve Irwin trademark kakai outfit and yelled their own messages such as "Pool's closed due to Stingrays!" A reference to the real Steve Irwin who was killed in the water by a Stingray. While only small number of this model was used during the September 11 raid, it's meddle was proven and has seen action in every raid and skermish since..

    Yet another invasion took place on November 5th, a day made famous by the movie "V for Vandetta." The theme was a little different, with the slogan "Parliment's Closed" replacing the usual war cry, and invaders dressing in black clothes and pale faces.

    On January 15th, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, /b/ flexed its raiding muscles once again. Although it was not as massive a scale as previous invasions, the number of afros proved that /b/ still enjoys a good raid. Habbo mods could do little else but disable chat and occasionally bomb (reset) the hardest hit rooms.

    After the massive success of the raid, many /b/tards are attempting to spread the meme wider. These include mass /b/tard gatherings at the "Snakes On A Plane" premiere, where the traditional nigra get-up is required, a "Pool's Closed" spraypaint stencil, an Anonymous poster cellotaping a "Pool's Closed" poster onto a swimming pool entrance gate. On 7-14-2006 at at Ikasucon, two 4channers named Bakasama32 and tripcoder Sempai's Pleasurous Nutrients became the first reported Habbo cosplayers, blocking Artists Alley, rest rooms, and several other events. Though small, it is the first real life /b/lockade. At least half a dozen nigras were also seen at Otakon 2006, and more will possibly be at Sugoicon 2006.

    One of the least know raids came from Black_Knight, who with another /b/tard after the Snakes on a Plane premiere raid, stumbled across a Teen Choice Magazine concert that was being sponsered by Habbo Hotel. Quick to action however only Black_Knight had a suit and afro with him and purchasing a cheap desposible camera to record what would happen next, would be the first raid which actually would cost Habbo advertisment time. Instead of doing a [/b/]lockade, they went straight to 3 laptops which allowed people to access habbo hotel. Using their own accounts they spammed the site until the Laptop's IP was banned, this meant that no one could use the laptops and crippling Habbo's advertisments chances.

    Although some find the meme childish and futile, it is generally considered one of the funniest and most successful memes of 4chan.

    Did you guys communicate often?

    It's quite a sad moment in my life though last year I played habbo for a couple of weeks. It was lame and I hated everything about it until I started blocking the poolside due to aids.

    It was fun for a while being an afro, but then I stopped going there all together. I even convinced some one to buy me HC, that was awesome.

    Most of them seemed like complete idiots, and they reacted when you mocked them. But this one person, in his shining tuxedo and overwhelming in your face style hair basically was as smart and quick-witted or more then I was at online mockery.

    I forget the exact conversation but he seemed like a normal bloke and not a n00b like the rest, then he asked why I cared about such a stupid game in the first place. Got me thinking, why am I even here?

    Next minute, pool was closed due to aids. All my little habbo friends were like, "omg what is wrong with you i thought you were nice".

    That pool blockade happened on my birthday. Fux pro, if you ask me. 4chan has always been pro and will continue to be until the FBI shuts them down for child pornography.

    I was told by some of the people I was blocking with though it started out ORIGINALY because a Moderator banned someone and something to do with the Moderator being racist.

    And thats how it all began. This was before the HUGE group of Fros blocking the pool and making national recognition. Like, months before it took place.

    Wow, in all honesty and I don't really care if I get banned for this.

    YOU'RE THE CANCER THATS KILLING /b/

    I remember 3 years ago when I could spend countless hours on /b/ and get many a lulz, but now because of Gai***s, RP***s, Fur***s,and ***s in general, it has turned to the one thing we never though possible, the worst "worst" place on the internet because everything has become so fake that it appauls even the most hardcore of /b/tards. I can't stand 5 minutes of /b/ now a days mostly because no one adheres to the rules of it anymore and it stopped being the Racist/Egotistical/Heartless/and downright disgusting bunch that many /b/tards used to love.

    tl;dr?

    GTFO out of my /b/.

    Anyone going to Hal Turner's house on 4/21? I'm considering it.
