Developer api links which go to roblox are marked otherwise

Reproduction Steps

  1. Go to: Oops!.
  2. Scroll down to “Laggy Cannons”
  3. Click the blue “You can play it online here” button
  4. A “You are leaving Roblox” warning prompt appears

Expected Behavior
Links which direct to any domain should not show a warning prompt.

Actual Behavior
non links show a “You are leaving Roblox” prompt

Change the match for links for this warning prompt from* to **

Issue Area: Roblox Website
Page URL: Oops!.
Impact: Low
Frequency: Constantly


Can confirm this is happening:

As a workaround, you can try middle clicking to open it on a new tab to avoid the prompt being shown, intentional or not:

Something similar is happening to Roblox Jazwares where if you’d click the button to the official Roblox redeemer, it would show the error. Not sure if it’s related, but I’d say to point that out. I don’t know if Roblox Jazwares are affiliated.

Yeah this case seems intentional. Roblox may have some sort of partnership with Jazwares, but Jazwares is not owned by Roblox and they have their own domain therefore this seems intended. Roblox should not show the warning when redirecting users to a sub domain.


Please use the right category, moved to #bug-reports:developer-hub ( = Developer Hub)
