Official Rules of the Roblox Developer Forum

Global Rule 8

8. Do not make posts regarding Developer Forum moderation. If you disagree with moderation actions on the forum, discuss it in private with the moderators.

  • 8.1 Do not reply aggressively to moderation or feedback messages. If you want to discuss a moderation action or feedback message that you’ve received, you are expected to do so in a civil manner. Inappropriate, derogatory, or offensive replies to these messages will result in punishment.
  • 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 13

13. Do not bump old topics. You should only reply to older topics if you have significant new information to add to the discussion.

Global Rule 14

14. 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.

  • 14.1. 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 15

15. 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.

Post approval procedure:

  • 15.1 If you are a Member, then some categories will intercept your post and send it through to the Post Approval team for review. This process is automatic: just attempt posting directly in the category and you will be redirected for approval.

    The post approval team will then work with you to make sure your post meets category guidelines. They might ask you to make changes to your post before the topic can be approved.

    Post approval requests are processed by volunteer community members, so the process can take anywhere between 10 minutes to several days depending on availability. Please do not circumvent the post approval procedure by posting your topic in an entirely unrelated category.

    UPDATE MARCH 2020: Please read the following post on current waiting times for post approval:

    Heads-up: Post Approval has huge backlog = longer waiting times

  • 15.2 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.

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