Currently, as of 11/25/21, links to the developer forums are moderated. This makes it impossible to provide links to changelogs, attributions, and more in a game’s description. It makes the point of the bulletin board somewhat moot.
How to reproduce:
Edit a game’s description in studio & attempt to add a link to a post on the bulletin board, here on the devforums.
Observe that the settings failed to save, due to the description being moderated:
Doesn’t matter on what browser you are on, if you to and edit any game’s description and you add any roblox devforum post link (example Minerblocks Update Log)
It won’t let you save the link into the game description saying a error message “Inappropriate game title or description”. This will not let any developers to add their update logs using an roblox devforum post link into their game’s description.
If there was nothing wrong with it like how it was for years now, it wouldn’t tell you “Inappropriate game description or title” and it would just save the roblox devforum links into the description just like it supposed to.
Roblox description and title moderation bot doesn’t let you to have any links into your game’s description, but this caused the problem of developers not being able to add their devforum posts about their games and projects for the community to read and learn into their game’s description.
Ideally, how this should be fixed is that roblox should whitelist all roblox devforum links allowing the developers to add again their posts about their games into their game description.
