Let Us Filter *Out* UGC Items in the Catalog Other Than "View All Items"

As a Roblox developer, it is currently too hard to look for items in the catalog published by Roblox without seeing UGC items in subcategories except “View All Items.”

Roblox recently added a filter dedicated to UGC, which is cool and all, but can the filter that only shows items Roblox be available to more categories?

Now the UGC program is great. However, I cannot search for items made by Roblox outside of View All Items, whether it be because I’m searching up a specific item that I know was made by Roblox, or because I just don’t want to see UGC items.

If Roblox is able to address this issue, it would improve my development experience because I would finally be able to find items on the catalog made by Roblox without seeing UGC mixed in, outside of View All Items.

Roblox, I know you want UGC, and UGC creators, I know you want more exposure. But please, at least give us an option to filter it out in more categories,.

EDIT: It’s viewable in the “View All Items” subcategory, but not in any other category. This means you can’t filter out just hair, just gear, etc. using this subcategory.

This is incredibly useful. Too bad you can’t use it outside of one category.

One example is in the “Accessories” subcategory. Want to look for hair? No way to filter out UGC. This is the same with neck accessories, shoulder accessories, etc.

Why restrict this filter to only one category?

Thank you.

This is important for when I’m creating characters for my game because I want to ensure I’m not accidentally using someone else’s work without their permission. Right now I need to scroll through hundreds of assets which I don’t have the rights to, before I find any items I want.

In my situation, due to how few hair Roblox produced it required me to go many pages in before I found an item by Roblox because there were so many UGC items with the same descriptors, fortunate that the item I was looking for was just one page before the catalog search stopped returning results.
