We’d like to remind you of the current and long-standing policy for off-site links being displayed / posted around the website and the language associated with those sites. Here at Roblox, we’re always working to find the best balance between enabling creative and social experiences, while also ensuring a safe and friendly working environment for everyone. Users age 13 and above are permitted to post links within certain content guidelines noted below and to the following sites:
(Please note: As per our rules, using any of the above websites to redirect to another website outside of those listed above, or linking content containing inappropriate material, will result in the link being removed and moderation action being taken against the associated account)
Linking of Discord servers and references to Discord on the Roblox website are not allowed. Since Discord’s Terms of Service only allows people aged 13 or older to use their platform and Roblox is a platform for all ages, we cannot risk unfairly exposing underage users to platforms such as Discord. In light of this, we will continue to ban the advertisement of discord servers, any references to Discord will not be permitted through our chat systems. We understand the argument can be made that YouTube, Twitter, and Twitch all have similar policies regarding users under 13, but these platforms also allow users to browse without logging in, while Discord requires you to have an account so people aged 12 and under cannot see the information you are linking. This is the primary reason we are not able to allow it.
We are in the process of reviewing all game descriptions and old forum posts for Discord links and will be removing these descriptions and posts over the next few weeks. If you think that your post or description has been incorrectly moderated, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the information on your game and your concerns.
We’re aware that our current chat / messaging and group systems do not allow developers to do all of the things they want for the player communities they’ve established and we are actively working on creating better features and tools in hopes of resolving this. In the coming year look for announcements from us regarding improvements and changes to game description, chat, and group functionality.
We welcome your engagement on these topics. We know not everyone will be satisfied on every feature or policy decision that we make. Please keep all replies polite, professional, and constructive, so that we can all benefit from helpful feedback from our community. If you have any questions about this, please leave them in this thread and our team will respond to them as best as possible.
