As a Roblox developer, it is currently too hard to retain a good playerbase due to the fact that every time one must switch their game’s icon it automatically puts blank, generic white image in it’s place.
Here’s a picture of @fireboltofdeath’s player count when the icon was blank:
It dips insanely low due to a literal lack of context of what the game is. Icons can really affect a game. In this example, they lost half the player count in 30 minutes because the icon was blank. Despite the fact they spent thousands on ads.
Icons that are waiting approval should be hidden until they’ve been approved. They should fall back to a previous version instead of just being a blank white image.
Players can’t find, or have a hard time finding the game they were looking for due to the blank icon, and games with blank icons are automatically assumed to be low-quality.
If Roblox is able to address this issue, it would improve my development experience because developers would be able to retain a playerbase better, and players could find the game easier.
