As a Roblox developer, it is impossible to follow the replies on critical bug reports. As a developer it is obviously important that the platform is up. When the entire platform is down, someone will make the topic that goes viral, and from there the replies turn into a discord chat room. Sometimes even the very creators of these topics regret making them, developers should not be discouraged from posting bug reports that affect them as a developer, regardless of how big or small they are.
The most recent one got 108+ replies in less than 20 minutes. All of them are “can confirm” replies or testing on different devices/browsers even though 10 different users already attempted prior, but even the first user testing is unnecessary since platform going down is a global issue. It gives a false sense of contribution.
So considering that this is primarily if not only for critical bug reports, they should be closed instantly if marked as critical (I believe most regulars have good judgment, if they misuse it it’s their fault as they prevent new information from being added to non-critical bug reports), and only Roblox staff can reply. Otherwise they could just be moved into #bug-reports (the parent category) since only regulars can reply to open topics directly in #bug-reports.
If this is added it will improve everyone’s experience since only useful information will be the most prominent on a topic.
If this cannot be done, then at least an option to filter by the Roblox staff group, similar to how you can filter replies by user, would prove to be a massive help.
