Recently, I got a post flagged on the Roblox DevForum, I have been here for a few months and know that you get a message when your post gets removed. HOWEVER, lately I have been getting 2-3 messages about it. Not from the community, but from The Developer Engagement Team, and the system bot. Both messages are pretty much the same, the Dev Team one is a bit more detailed though. I find this annoying because it blocks out a lot of other stuff (Comments from people who are not staff, Likes, and posts you are following up on).
Why This Feature/Bug Is So Annoying:
Say if i commented on 50 posts 1 time each and they all got flagged, instead of having 50 warning, I would have 100 Messages talking about my post getting flagged. Also, If you are a user who is well-known in the forum, it might block out all the other chats that matter a bit more. Even just having 2 warning after 1 flag can still be annoying.
Here is an example of the bug:
I got this post removed and this happened:
And Yet Another Message About The SAME Post:
I understand that one had a different title, but they both explained the same thing, “your post was removed by our community,”. Looks like Roblox Broke their own spam rule.
My fix would to be to ask the Developer engagement team members to stop messaging users about their post(s) being removed. The Reason We can’t get rid of the bot, is because it is a core component to the Forum. I would say this is the one thing Developer Engagement can’t really help with. They just have to stop Private Messaging people about flags. Let the Bot do what it is there to do, that is really all there is to it.
Thank you for reading, please fix. - Aidan Plays!!
