Critical information missing on Roblox Wiki

After introducing a VIP game pass to my game a few days ago, I got a lot of messages that my VIP pass wasn’t being recognised by the in-game GUI store.

I knew it was the PlayerHasPass() function that wasn’t working correctly.
I triple-checked my code, it appeared solid as a rock, no errors, no warnings. The wiki article didn’t specify any specific pitfalls about this method.
After a lot of attempts (and crying) to make it work I replaced the LocalScript containing the function with a (server) script, and it worked again like nothing ever happened.

I wouldn’t classify this as a bug, but it should be noted that the link above is missing an important message saying that this method should only be used with a Script and not a LocalScript, like here.

Where’s that article outlining the problems with the wiki?

Oh yeah, go look at the scrubtino thread. It’s got a link to it.

Do you happen to have a link to that thread?
Would be really appreciated. :slight_smile:

I’ve corrected it for you.

If it’s returning false instead of throwing an error I’d say that should be changed. There’s no reason to allow people to believe that their code is working.
