As a Roblox Developer and devforum user, it’s currently difficult through ignore certain posts that are intended as troll posts; the amount of replies theses posts get is absolutely unacceptable, as it constantly bumps these posts to the top. While DET can remove these quite quickly, they are currently not enacting tough enough punishment on these users.
Even the user of the disgraceful among us post was not permanently banned. A 7-day ban is not enough to deter these users. More and more troll posts pop up every day; punishment is not hard enough on users who make these posts. For a professional forum, I am shocked that this is even tolerated the slightest bit. I suggest a couple of changes:
- Enact Zero-Tolerance for these topics; users who make these posts will be removed from the forum right away.
- Suspend users who write troll replies to an already off-topic post. I don’t believe these users should be permanently banned but it is essential they learn a lesson.
- Deliver feedback to users who reply to these topics, no matter if they were trolling or not. Recently a troll post had lots of replies, most of them not troll replies, but rather replies such as “this post is a troll”, “why post this here”, and “get off the forum”. These users do not understand that they are actually making the situation worse by replying. In 2 hours, this topic got 129 replies before it was taken down.
Punishment is currently not hard enough for people who troll on the forum, unless people can stop making these topics, this needs to be put in place to deter these from happening. Not just do they happen in #development-discussion, but they are popping up in categories such as #help-and-feedback:cool-creations.
This would improve my experience on the developer forum as I would see less of these troll posts, spammy and low-quality posts are already a nuisance but troll posts make my experience even worse as this forum should not tolerate trolling of any kind.
