Hi developers!

We will be removing the already-deprecated HasBadge.ashx web endpoint on October 19th, 2020

To offer a brief explanation, we’re removing this endpoint since it is part of a deprecated Badges system that is no longer being actively maintained on the platform.

For game developers, please note that there are no in-game Lua code changes required going forward, as both the HasBadge and HasBadgeAsync Lua functions will remain operational after the shutdown of the old HasBadge.ashx web endpoint - https://assetgame.roblox.com/Game/Badge/HasBadge.ashx

This announcement is mainly for informational purposes, as well as to potentially notify any third party services or sites that are using the HasBadge.ashx endpoint of this upcoming removal.

For any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to reach out! We would be happy to offer any clarification on what to expect moving forward. Thank you!
