[Client Only] Chat Filter is Broken

When talking using Roblox’s in-game chat, the chat will not censor words that otherwise should be censored. Note that this is local and only affects the client.

Warning: Naughty words that don’t reflect my personality ahead.

As far as I know, this only happens in-game. It started happening this morning.

To repro:

  1. Enter a game
  2. Use the chat
  3. Say something that should be filtered by default.

Screenshot taken in this game:

But it happens globally.

I’ll repeat again, this does not replicate to the server. Thanks to @Metapoly for letting me know.

Stay on-topic. Platform Feedback is not the place to have discussions.

I think the engineers were working on fixing it along with this as soon as possible.

I’m pretty sure it’s just local and your message hasn’t been sent to the actual server.

i shouldn’t have said filter explicitly, i meant to say that textfilter.roblox.com is chugging

textfilter.roblox.com is back up as of the time below:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
cache-control: no-cache
pragma: no-cache
content-type: application/json; charset=utf-8
expires: -1
x-frame-options: SAMEORIGIN

It’s not returning 500, so textfilter.roblox.com is not under attack(?)

but it response TOO slow, it takes 3 min to respond

it had high traffic, currently the 3 things it’s returned have been
500 Internal Server Error
502 Bad Gateway
200 OK

I got 503 (Service Unavailable) response from textfilter endpoint

It’s loading but it’s still requesting the api dump

[Monitoring] A top game released new content which has caused temporary decreased performance. Things are recovering and currently being monitored.”

The responsibility is on Roblox. Adopt Me devs were merely using the platform as intended. I think many of us would not miss an opportunity to get 1 million+ players in our game.

Is there a way to check if Roblox DataStores are still unavailable? I want to leave a game, but if DataStores doesn’t work I would have a lot of work unsaved.

just try and load gamepersistence.roblox.com + /docs if you want, but members are undocumented

The roblox chat has a customizable option where the person chatting can’t see if what they’re saying is censored.

Image of this in the roblox ChatSettings module script

The game may have this set to false.
