About the Forum Features category

Use this category to request Developer Forum features and changes that would improve your user experience while using the Developer Forum.

Please do not post non-forum-related feature requests in this category. See #feature-requests.

How should I write my feature request?

Make sure that your feature has not already been requested! Use the search in the top-right to look for topics!

Please try to follow this format when posting:

  • Please start out by describing your motivation for requesting the feature with this sentence:

    As a Roblox developer, it is currently too hard to …

  • If Roblox is able to address your issue, how would it improve your experience using the Developer Forum? Please complete this sentence as specifically as possible:

    If Roblox is able to address this issue, it would improve my experience using the forum because …

Feel free to include any other details afterwards or in between. Give your post a clear and descriptive title, and focus on problems and use cases, rather than proposed solutions.

Always add use cases

Please do not just say that you need a feature as its only motivation. Clearly explain the development problem(s) you are facing and why you need the feature that you are requesting to solve it, so that engineering can fully understand your problem(s).

Do not start your topic for feature X with “As a developer, it is impossible to do X.”, as that is not the correct way to do it. This sentence should explain succinctly what your development issue is, not just that you don’t yet have the feature you are requesting, as the latter is obvious.

Focus on problems

Please focus on use cases and problems. Do not focus your request around a proposed solution (i.e. API suggestion, or a specific technical way to solve an issue). Our teams care about your use cases and the reasons behind those, rather than your proposed solution, as our product teams will work to find the best compromise between what is needed and what fits on the platform.

You can include your proposed solution as a minor note in your feature request, of course.
