As a Roblox Developer, it is currently very difficult to have almost no way to for report bugs about the Talent Hub to get noticed and to make feature requests for the Talent Hub.
There are many people out there who have lots of feedback to improve the Talent Hub, but there little to no ways for us to actual say our feedback.
The only thing we can do is just make a suggestion in the Talent Hub Announcement post, but there’s a 9/10 chance that it won’t be seen by the staff
If Roblox were to address this issue, the Talent Hub will most likely improve MUCH faster since ALL developers are given a much better way to make their suggestions to improve the Talent Hub.
Known bugs will be fixed faster. Wanted features will be added faster and sooner or later there will be less and less of a reason to complain about the current state about the Talent Hub and how the Collaboration Category is getting deleted.
Read the most detailed explanation and the use cases below the page break:
Case 1 for Post Access to #bug-reports:talent-hub-bugs
Last week, @iGottic posted SEVEN bug reports she found on the Talent Hub at once. I’d say that Seven is quite a lot. I noticed that I experienced some of the bugs she reported before she made the posts. They could’ve been fixed faster if we had an easier to report these bugs rather than making a reply on Talent Hub Announcement thread.
- Although it is known that you can just report the Talent Hub bug as a member to the Bug-Support Team, you will be able to get the bug fixed faster since you can get support from others. This will be extremely useful, especially during high impact Talent Hub bugs that practically ruin the functionality, since it often takes a day or two for the Bug Support team to respond to the member’s PM, while a public bug report definitely has a higher chance of getting noticed since its posted publicly.
Although it is somewhat known that Bug Support might ask you to make a bulletin board post for the bug report and then they will move it to the appropriate Bug-Reports Sub-Categotery, the arguments I made in the original Counterargument to Case 1 still stands.
Although its certain that Talent Hub Bug Reports will get posted sooner or later, the faster it gets reported, the quicker the bug will get fixed.
Case 1 for Full Access to #feature-requests:talent-hub-features
Lots of members have LOTS of ideas to improve the Talent Hub. All you have to do is look at the original announcement post to see the enormous amount of replies with suggestions to improve the Talent Hub. If All Members were to Access Talent Hub Feature Requests, the Talent Hub could most certainly improve faster.
Although it is known that you can use Roblox Support to make feature requests for anything, I’m sure lots of people would find posting Talent Hub Feature requests here because beneficial Talent Hub Feature Requests can get supported from other members on the DevForum.
Case 2 for Full Access to #feature-requests:talent-hub-features
The original announcement thread has almost *800 replies, some more negative than others. Some good Talent Hub feature-requests could definitely get lost in there (or maybe some good ones already have gotten lost in there). If all Members could post in #feature-requests:talent-hub-features , improvements for the Talent Hub will definitely get more attention and perhaps more support depending on how good the feature request for the Talent Hub is.
Some of you may say that if #feature-requests:talent-hub-features and #bug-reports:talent-hub-bugs were to open to members, The DevForum would be in absolute chaos with so many spam and duplicate topics.
First off, duplicate topics won’t be as much of an issue since the purpose of subcategories of #bug-reports:talent-hub-bugs and #feature-requests:talent-hub-features are straight-forward. If there were to be duplicate topics, just flag the topic and DET will take it down.
If Members had access to #bug-reports:talent-hub-bugs and #feature-requests:talent-hub-features the Talent Hub will be improved much faster, much better, and as time goes on there will be less and less of a reason to complain about the Talent Hub.
I’ve been wanting to post this for a while now, but I purposely waited until the end of March since the Collaboration Category is set to deletion any time now.
Edit: Fixed a typo
Edit 2: Added links to some of the terms I made in my post for most clarity
Edit 3: Added a counterargument to Case 3 for Full Access to #feature-requests:talent-hub-features
Edit 4: Added a counter argument for Case 2 for Full Access to #feature-requests:talent-hub-features.
Edit 5: Removed the cases for having the ability to reply to Talent Hub Features since I didn’t realize that members already have the ability to do that.
Also, no need to flag as I got permission from DET to post this so it would be pointless to.
