As a Roblox developer, it is currently difficult (tedious forking the chat scripts, unaware of the behavior etc) to create a safe environment for our players due to the implementation of the
/me chat command, which is formatted in such a way which allows it to be manipulated to trick other users, like so:
(/me just got TONS of ROBUX using obvious scam site! Visit obvious scam site in your browser to generate ROBUX instantly!)
(/me is an admin!)
Possible solutions include:
- Removing the feature. - would make the most sense due to the fact it has no practical use.
- Disabling the feature by default.
- Modifying the format to appear less like a “system message”.
It could be argued that the user who falls for the obvious bait is at fault, which is no doubt the case, however the feature is a possible phishing/trolling vector which serves no legitimate purpose, and is being taken advantage of in multiple games.
