All Members should immediately be able to post in feature requests

As a developer, it’s frustrating to be able to not be able to post in feature requests. It is really disrespectful that as a developer for Roblox for 5 years and Roblox stealing 70% of my profits, they still do not let me request features. If you think it would be abused then consider this: all the other channels like #development-discussion and #help-and-feedback:scripting-support are not abused, so it’s not reasonable to suggest that feature requests would be also abused. Ultimately all Members should be able to post in feature requests.

This forum feature request has a emphasis on Members immediately being able to post request, which was the initial idea of the forum feature request now called “All forum users should have a path forward to be able to post in feature requests”, but unfortunately that suggestion has since detracted from the idea of members being immediately being able to post to them having a “path”,

After the creator of that post got Regular role himself (impossible to get for many people), he changed the post from indicating that all members should be able to post in feature requests to them having a “path”. And i fear that this path may be one that many members would not like to take.

That was one of the reasons why i created this post: the person who created the other post does changed it to not reflect what many Members actually want, due to him possibly forgetting what it’s like to not be able to post a feature request. So that implies - if you didn’t already get it - that is requesting a different forum feature than that request.

The “path” could suggest Document ID Verification, or a huge amount of activity on the devforum of which, actual hard-working developers won’t spend, or something even more arduous.

All members should immediately be able to post in feature requests.

Thank you for your interest, this is a duplicate of the thread you link: All forum users should have a path forward to be able to post in feature requests

Please see my response there: All forum users should have a path forward to be able to post in feature requests - #154 by Hooksmith

Closing this as a duplicate, please consolidate all discussion in the thread above so we don’t lose track of your feedback! It’s hard to keep track of scattered threads about the same request.

Also to clarify:

  • I changed the title, not the user themselves
  • Regular no longer has an effect on feature request access, it is guarded by AllowFeatureRequests group access. You can request to join to show your interest in having access so we can use that to help prioritize work.
    • Regular no longer affects any forum permission.
