Just curious, where do these search terms come from, are they generated automatically? If a new trend or game comes up, will the autocomplete suggest terms for new things that didn’t exist before, E.g. “Piggy” or “Granny”, or “Squid games”. Curious how intelligent this is.
I do all 5 and except audio still don’t use the marketplace, I’m failing to see how these are related as asset packs are usually delivered through file.
Skyboxes sure, but if you search skyboxes so much that it actually covers that much of your time autocomplete starts to cut down on your time, I’m worried.
This is a small QOL update at best, a update that hindered actually useful updates and time at worst. There’s a 100 different updates that could be made for Marketplace that actually provides real incentive and the fact you decided to defend autocomplete and not recognise that, is something I disagree with.
My post below gives very real and good examples for even just Marketplace search itself.
Because it is small, it won’t take much time off of “actually useful” updates. Should browsers/search engines stop suggesting search queries based on what you type, then? It’s a pretty painful experience to have to write things out entirely. Waste of time and more prone to misspellings.
So make/support feature requests with strong use cases! Roblox engineers won’t know what is wanted without feedback.
Also do keep in mind that your priority list is not the same as everyone else’s, let alone that of Roblox engineers.
To say that “important updates” are “ignored” is in itself quite ignorant – prioritization exists, and if it’s that urgent then Roblox will give it a higher priority. And once more, you as an individual cannot speak on behalf of the entire community. I am primarily a programmer, and therefore may use the marketplace to find models, 2D art, etc.
It’s a simple QOL update, as you said. It’s not the end of the world that this was added, but at this point complaining just for the sake of complaining isn’t even a surprise to me anymore.
I find it ironic that you managed to include that I in no way represent the community in any scale but that I should also create these feature requests.
The fact stands that this is a QOL update, but so is also Marketplace working in other languages (Spanish, Portuguese, German etc) and yet that could actually help millions of people while autocomplete really doesn’t even come close to that.
I’m glad you willing to share with me the very fact Roblox has a priority list and it’s nearly as if my comments were directed to that in the first place.
You say that I’m complaining for the sake of complaining (When I give ideas that quite literally would help people, you speak Spanish so you know how a lot of Spanish speakers can struggle with English), perhaps that’s exactly the sort of mindset that disincentives important discussion that leads to bad priorities in the first place.
I don’t know about you but raising a fuss about autocomplete seems like an unnecessary hill to die on. A good majority of the developer community is English speaking and so are the assets uploaded to the site. Localisation updates will come in time, have some patience. It’s no different to have it now than it is to have it later and you don’t know what technical limitations may be blocking those updates, if any.
You should tone it down. Some Roblox updates or priorities might seem out of place to us as developers but we lack the internal insight to have good discretion on why things are the way they are. It’s a small QoL update and I’m sure a lot of novice developers or users of the toolbox appreciate the tooling. If you don’t, that’s fine, it doesn’t affect you unlike how another update might.
When you create a feature request is is generally because you need it, but the part of the community that also needs it can add on. Then, you don’t post just for yourself, but that part of the community as well.
I never claimed that they didn’t have trouble, or that I was otherwise against better accessibility because of the priority list, it’s something I see and help people with everyday, please do not put words into my mouth.
I’m really not interested in debating over such a small feature that is almost impossible to complain about, yet somehow here we are. However if we as developers aren’t supporting the “more important” features, Roblox won’t know what is higher in demand. I am also not interested in speculating about whatever Roblox’s priority list is, just that it exists and that Roblox may have other plans as well, and not everything can be decided based on community consensus. Just how things work.
