Isn’t really a website bug due to the fact that Roblox filter is so strong its impossible to say “Adams” without spaces or special letters or just type my username in general

Also, your username maybe related to a inappropriate word or idk.

Pozzy :skull:
Is a kind of cat

My name is also censored, to be honest for people with censored names they should really offer a free name change option

I dont have that problem :sunglasses:

But like @Megalodox_Official said, they should get a free name change if they want to, or they could tone down on the censoring (which probably isnt gonna happen) so your best bet would be to use an extension

I also think they shouldn’t censor the search bar. I mean what can appear? The game titles/descriptions are already filtered. Player names are as well, assets, avatars etc…

If everything is filtered then in the search bar we do not need filtering.

Another workaround is that you can use this url:
https://www.roblox.com/users/profile?username=Daw588
Replace Daw588 with whatever username you are searching for.

They do it so you can’t as easily find inappropriate games, IIRC. It’s not a perfect solution and becomes pretty annoying at times, but it does work.

This is a website bug since this is unintended behavior blocking an action.

They certainly need to improve username search, too many times things have been tagged for me

Weird. I know for a fact that people cannot create accounts containing “SubtotalAnt” in their name, but it doesn’t get censored.

This isn’t a bug, it’s Roblox’s filtering that filter “inappropriate” words.

This specific filter was most likely added if someone tried to type something inappropriate but made a typo. That’s the case with all usernames that can “relate to” or “rhyme” with inappropriate words or terms.

This is likely an intended feature (whether you like it or not). It’s been talked about in a ton of bug reports and feature requests and all of them come to the conclusion that it is an intended feature that will not be fixed. In this case, the OP would likely be better off asking for their specific username to be un-filtered rather than the filter to not be applied for search terms, as the latter likely will not happen.

There’s a form here that you should fill out

The link gives a 404. I think you should update it.

You have to be a regular to access #lounge
Pozzi is a regular since he’s able to post a bug report
