Official Rules of the Roblox Developer Forum

Three-Strike System of Moderation

We have a cumulative three-strike system on the Developer Forum that determines punishment lengths and types. Here’s a description of each strike and how you can receive them:

Strike One

Upon breaking some of the behavioral-related rules listed below, you will be sent a warning message by a member of the Developer Engagement Team. This warning comes with a 1-day suspension from the Developer Forum and counts as your first strike - you will be told very clearly that this is a strike. If you continue to break rules within 3 months of the first strike, you will be given Strike Two.

Strike Two

Upon continuing to break rules of the Developer Forum after receiving your first strike, you will receive Strike Two, which comes with another warning message and a 5-day suspension from the Developer Forum. After this point, continuing to break rules within 3 months of receiving your second strike will result in you receiving Strike Three.

Strike Three

Having accumulated a third strike within 3 months of your second strike, you will be sent a message notifying you of your permanent removal from the Developer Forum. Strike Three is a permanent removal from the forum and, depending on the severity of the issue, may result in moderation action against your Roblox account.

Special Cases

In certain cases, severe offenses can result in skipping Strike One and going immediately to Strike Two or Strike Three. We’ve created a table to better explain how rule-breaking correlates to strikes, located below the following rules:

Disclaimer: Moderators of this forum have the discretion to change/edit/delete any content they feel is inappropriate.

BB1 Posting off-site links 0 Feedback
BB2 Posting giveaways 0 Feedback
BB4 Posting profanity 0 Feedback

Please also note that receiving an unreasonable amount of feedback messages in a short period of time, especially for the same rule violation, puts you at risk of receiving a strike. This includes rapidly making low-effort posts.

Furthermore, note that strikes are given on a case-by-case basis at the discretion of the team member issuing them. They may not strictly adhere to the table above.

If at any time you require assistance, have any questions or any concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to a member of the Developer Relations Team. This includes: @DevEngagementTeam

Global Rule 1

1. This forum is designed to foster collaboration and communication in the Roblox developer community. All users are expected to be mature and civil. Trolling, flaming and personal attacks will not be tolerated.

  • 1.1 Personal attacks are when something negative is said about a person, rather than said about their behavior or their work. Even if the negative statement is true, personal attacks are not allowed here. Stick to posting constructive criticism about a person’s behavior or work. Posts containing criticism should also include suggestions for improvement. This rule applies to individuals, as well as to groups and teams.
  • 1.2 Mentioning users or games who you believe may be violating the Roblox Terms of Use counts as a personal attack. Do not bring disputes, accusations of scamming, etc. to the Developer Forum; no naming-and-shaming.

  • 2.2 Hate speech

  • 2.4 Politics
  • 2.5 Religion

Global Rule 3

3. Keep discussion within the subject of the topic (stay on-topic). If you want to change the subject, create a new topic.

  • 3.1 Do not call out users for improper DevForum use on topics, as this is off-topic. Instead, flag their post for the Developer Engagement Team to handle.

Global Rule 6

6. The private sections of the forum are mature enough for occasional swear words for emphasis. That said, do not direct swear words at other members or use sexual/extreme language.

  • 6.1 Directed swearing or extreme language is prohibited on all categories of the Developer Forum.

Global Rule 7

7. Spam replies and topics will be removed. Do not post the same topic repetitively or repeat the same post within a topic. Spam includes posts like “bump” or “first” that do not add to the content of the discussion.

  • 7.1 Do not create topics asking how much you should sell or buy assets for; these will be considered spam.
  • 7.2 Do not create topics asking users to rate your assets. Asking for feedback is fine, but asking for a rating (e.g. X out of 10) will be considered spam.

  • 8.2 Do not abuse the Flag system to maliciously hide posts.
  • 8.3 Do not create artificial forum activity, such as using alternate accounts to like your own posts.

Global Rule 12

12. Our community is gauged for Developers aged 13 years and older. Therefore there should not be any references to illicit or extreme content anywhere on the Developer Forum. This includes (but is not limited to) adult content and use of drugs, alcohol, or tobacco.

  • 12.1. You may not post NSFW/adult content on the Developer Forum. Intentionality is a factor - anything that is borderline or questionably NSFW will be considered unintentional, whereas any post that is very clearly NSFW will be considered intentional. The punishments for both differ, as you can see in the Broken Rules Matrix.

Global Rule 13

13. You are not permitted to accept any kind of payment for using the Developer Forum by proxy. This includes creating topics or replies for another user. Additionally, you may not sell access to features you obtain through membership, such as Beta User features available to those in the Developer Forum. Engaging in these activities will result in immediate removal from the Developer Forum.

  • 13.1 You may make topics in the Bulletin Board section for other people, provided you are not doing so in exchange for money or anything else.

  • 13.2 You may not make any other type of topic for other people.

Public Section - Rule 1
