DevForum Favicon shows regular Roblox Favicon on Safari

On Safari, on macOS and iPadOS, if you launch the DevForum, you will notice that the Favicon is the regular Roblox one.

Both devices are up to date on macOS Monterey 12.3.1, and iPadOS 15.4.1

This has started happening Summer 2021.

Possibly iOS now only recognize verified site providers and not their creations. Which means only .roblox without the stuff before that

I’m able to reproduce this. Weird bug.

Using iOS. For me, no icon shows at all.

I have never access the DevForum or the main Roblox site on my iPhone since last wiping browser data, so I’m wondering if for you guys it is falling back to the main Roblox icon in the cache.

The DevHub, Talent Hub, and Creator hub show the Developer favicon.

I get this too, but on iPadOS and macOS, it shows the Roblox favicon.

Yep, from Safari iOS (15.4.1) the DevForum favicon doesn’t appear, but yes in other forums based on Discourse…

These aren’t really good examples to compare with btw because all of these sites either do not have a subdomain (e.g. twittercommunity.com) or the subdomain has the same favicon as the top-level site anyway (e.g. discourse.org and meta.discourse.org have the same icon).

Either it’s fixed or I just can’t reproduce it.

Think it’s fixed now. On all my browsers I see the proper Icon for the DevForum.

Still doesn’t seem fixed to me unless there is release candidate on DevForum. Also to @Oetzi_CS

Doubt that there’s a release candidate.

Is this just on the Mac? Or still on both?

It’s still both:
