Literally every few hours some sort of rant regarding how “low-effort” games with free models are more popular than games without them, or just talking about free models in general. They add nothing new that previous topics don’t, and it’s honestly getting out of hand.
So can we just make mindless rants that don’t provide anything for Roblox staff against the rules?
This is last message im sharing about this: Free Models are made to be used in games, if owners don’t want them to be used, they shouldn’t have uploaded them. Use them or don’t use them, its up to the creator, don’t hate someone for using free models, don’t be mad you made them yourself or you paid someone to make them, you choose what you do. Everyone have an awesome day.
Stop those discusisons.
I one-thousand percent agree with this, there is no reason for people to look down on creators who use free-models, they’re on ROBLOX for a reason and just because a game includes free models doesn’t mean that the creator didn’t put effort into it.
If you can find the first thread discussing free models that encompasses the other discussions, feel free to flag any new conversations on free models with a redirect to that thread. I think a few of these discussions can be moved over to the Lounge, which I’ll consider doing if I come across any. This typically goes for any rant as well unless it’s well-founded, contributive, thought-provoking and follows the expectations of the category which is to hold discussions on development.
Threads having solutions or replies don’t make them protected against flagging or edits. DevEngagement will still (or should) remove threads if they don’t belong or merge the replies over to another thread that’s more fitting. The same goes with category moves, at least if they come from me: whether or not they have many posts or a solution, if they don’t belong, I recategorise them to where they better fit.
@colbert2677 Good to know. I’ve been under the impression that flagging should be done sparingly since it feels very much like an aggressive action – getting forum moderation involved about something that’s essentially doing no harm. This is useful advice for those coming across repetitive rants regardless of post count.
@cjjdawg Yes, the “anti-simulator” rants are also very annoying. We get it, you don’t like simulators. We get it, you think it’s cheap. Move on…
