As a Roblox developer and a devforum member, I’d prefer to see the bug reports I file with the Bug Support group stay consistent with the other ones in the #bug-reports category.
The bug report wizard allows regulars to file bug reports with specific formatting for organization purposes. However, this functionality is currently not available for devforum members. I believe it should be, but upon submitting, it would send a message to the @Bug-Support group for review instead of creating a new topic.
Reasons why I believe this would be beneficial:
I think doing this would allow consistency across all the subcategories of #bug-reports. Easy to read for Roblox staff.
- Less spam (maybe)
So many new members like to post in other categories about bugs they have discovered. Their main reason is usually, “I can’t post in bug reports”.
Many of them do not know that they can just message the Bug-Support group (which is probably the reason for the creation of this request). But if the “Report Bug” button isn’t greyed out, likely their first intention is to click it and file their bug through there, answering all the questions.
- Easier to file
I have to admit that filing a bug report as a member is a heck of a hassle. I first have to go to #bulletin-board and create a new topic, then go BACK to the #bug-reports category to view the template, then I write my new bug report, then have to go to the bug-support group to send a message asking for my topic to be moved over.
Through this, I can just click “Report Bug” and answer all my questions, then the message will be automatically sent to the bug support team.
If Roblox is able to address this issue, it would improve my experience using the forum because of the reasons stated above.
