I never thought that the day of proper feedback is coming. Using the seal of a proud platform feedback resident, I hereby approve of this program.
This is very exciting! Nice to see the Roblox team have members of the community test out new features to provide feedback!
Ah, I see, so I assume it goes through two groups of people before reaching the players?
In relation to the focus groups, are they zoom calls with other developers and Roblox employees or something else?
I updated my reply. It’s just my understanding and opinion but I think it’s how it is going to be. Sorry for not explaining myself properly before the update on the previous post.
This is awesome! I have a clarifying question about one of the questions, though.
9. What is the link to your most popular game?
Are there certain criterias for “participating in developing”, and for “popular”?
I’ve made a few assets (clothing, 3d models) for relatively popular games, but I’m not sure if that counts as “participating in developing”. I was also one of the developers of the second place Holiday Developer Game Jam game which I think is pretty notable, but the game isn’t necessarily “popular”.
Thanks in advance!
I personally think this is a great idea! As of lately I feel unfortunately there has been a disconnect between developers and the staff and if this program can allow the “voice of the developer community to be amplified” I think it’ll bridge this gap. I think the feeling that our opinions really do atleast have some kind of meaning behind them and consideration will help. This is definitely going to help out for the better.
This would be much more secretive than the current Beta testing system, correct?
This is exactly what I’ve been waiting for, a way I can voice my feedback and opinions on features/products. Applied for this program immediately!
I’m curious about this as well, I’ve worked on plenty of games, but the form doesn’t allow you to include your portfolio/past experience, which may play a major part in decision-making.
I an excited for this! I think this is an amazing ideas and this is a great way to share how people are feeling about something, and give feedback and constructive criticism on new features. Submitted my application, hope I get in!
I see there’s a few questions asking about experience in game studios. As someone who focuses on freelance work, rather than staying dedicated to specific studios, would my feedback still be useful here?
I’m excited that Roblox is giving us an opportunity to connect and have a voice!
I applied as soon as I saw this, I really wish to be apart of this program to submit feedback to the platform and hope to get in :)!
I see use in this private community feedback group, as developers can suggest things to make Roblox.
Hope to see more on this, and good luck to anyone who submitted, hopefully I get in!
By any chance is there an estimated time it will take to be notified if you’re accepted (will it be through Roblox messages, DevForum messages, or the email we submitted?) Also, is there going to be only 100 people accepted, or like over 1000.
And for a personal thing, on the “most popular game”, I know I’ve developed in other games by groups and friends that likely have more place visits then what I submitted, I just didn’t know which they are, so I submitted my largest place that is public.
Lovely, I can’t wait to see if I have been accepted or not!
This is separate from the beta program. This program essentially approves you to participate in focus groups and private betas.
Both! Usually focus groups are small meetings with you, product, and other developers via zoom.
Ideally we would like you to submit a game you participated a large amount in developing.
This mostly depends on the project.
I see no mention of NDAs or age limits. Does this mean that members of the program are free to openly discuss what goes on?
The survey will reject you if your age does not meet qualifications.
I think sometimes it’s very difficult to voice your opinion as a developer - this is why we see a ton of people post stuff on twitter and the dev-forums about stuff they dislike and such. I think this is an excellent opportunity to whoever gets in to voice their opinions and those of the community to higher ups who might be able to make some changes. Hopefully this program can close the bridge between developers and staff.
Applied as soon as I saw the post. I wish to provide feedback if I get into the program. Good luck to anyone who applied for this excellent opportunity!
Is there any specific number of people that will be accepted and when we will be notified if we where accepted or not?
