As a Roblox developer, it is currently too hard to keep my fan base up to date with our latest updates.
The current time limit of one Game Update every seven days is detrimental to being able to communicate properly with our fans. This is a feature that could have a lot of potential, but I feel like having such a long time out discourages people from using it.
After talking to some other fellow developers, it feels like we are all in favor of decreasing this time limit. Here are some legitimate concerns I have gathered:
- I forgot to send out a game update on the same day of my update, and had to send it out 1-3 days after. Now I have to wait another 7 days to send another? This just means all of my Game Updates will be delayed if I stick to the same release schedule!
- My release schedule is not set in stone. Sometimes I can have two legitimate updates in a given week! How am I supposed to communicate that my followers’ favorite game has another awesome update?
- Upon release of any of my updates, I always send a Game Update to let my followers know. But one of my updates was severely broken and I wasn’t able to fix it until the morning after! How am I supposed to communicate that the issues have been solved to the people loyal enought to hit follow?
