Its no secret how bad the ROBLOX catalog is when it comes to shirts and pants. Tons of copies and irrelevant items show up when you try to search for an item. I look for assets to use on zombies for my game, and it is sometimes a very annoying process. For players spending robux to improve their character I believe it should be better optimized.
What’s the fix? Simply stop using descriptions for the search engine.
Since the beginning of the website people just add tags to the description so their items show up in every possible search.
The year is 2021, I believe it is finally time to address the catalog more. By making this change searches will be far more relevant. Players who want a specific shirt will find it much easier to find what they are actually searching for rather than a totally irrelevant asset that just uses the “tag” system to show up in any search.
I don’t think there is much argument as to why descriptions should be used in the search engine, this minor change could greatly improve the catalog.
