What is Ro-Chat?

Ro-Chat is a WIP, mobile-compatible, safe alternative to Discord, which is 13+ and is not safe. Anyone can use Ro-Chat, because it uses the <13 Roblox filter.

Why you should use Ro-Chat

  • Safer than Discord
  • Minimal sign-up required - no passwords!
  • Chat with people without Roblox friending them
  • Still need to Ro-Chat friend them, but that’s easy (and mutual)
    Features
  • DMs
  • 2 Public Servers (lounge and front-page-game discussion)
  • Friending

How it works
When you send a message, or friend someone, your requests get sent to one of tens of DataStores. The DataStores send the required message to you, and everything is converted into UI and shown on your screen. This can cause some lag and dropped messages, but as long as you don’t rapid-fire message, the system will work.

Public servers use internal tables, which means there is no rate limit and you can send messages every 3 seconds (as opposed to 6 with the data stores)

How to Use

Sign-up

You’ll see a screen that prompts you to enter a tag. Make sure the tag isn’t censored, or your username might be “##### the ########”.

Getting started

To get started, you can look for some friends. Join a public server and start a discussion.

Friending

Hey, you found a friend! You can see his tag in the corner of his message: Ty Scripts. So you want to DM him and chat privately. But you need to friend him first! No, not on Roblox; Ro-Chat has its own friend system! Type #friend:Ty Scripts into the Direct Code box.

Accepting friend requests

Ty Scripts opens his friend requests so he can talk to you more. You didn’t push submit when sending the Friend Request, so he thinks you don’t know how to friend. He sends you a FR and you look in your list. You accept.

DMs

Here’s the fun part: talking with Ty Scripts! Type #dm:Ty Scripts into the Direct Code box. Now you can DM him! DMs save forever (unless a game purge is done, but those are rare if ever)

Profile

You can look at your profile by clicking the picture of your avatar in the corner.

Name changing

Let’s say for some reason your name is filtered. For real, not in the story, send Ty Scripts a friend request. If your name is filtered, I’ll accept. We can DM to see what you want it changed to, and then I’ll change it manually. You will lose your friends and DMs, though.

Good? Go ahead and join the discussion: https://www.roblox.com/games/5873166333/

Can’t wait to see you there!

Added ads! Only costs 100 robux to opt out of, and you can purchase effective ads for as little as :robux:1!* Much cheaper than the Roblox website. Contact me or @GamersInternational on the DevForum in order to get an ad for whatever price you’d like (other than free)!

*1 robux ads can only be purchased a total of three (3) times, as Roblox takes 100% of that. The forever limit is 2 robux.
