Imagine if you are a game developer with a front page game that needs to be maintained and your account get’s falsely banned?
You’d just wait for Roblox Support to may or may not help you with your case?
Would you be fine with losing years of tears, sweat, hard work and sleepless nights over something dumb like that?
Your reputation and game ruined because of someone else’s mistake?
Don’t we deserve to be treated better?
I have experienced this before, luckily I had someone to help… it was infuriating because I couldn’t release an update on time
I’m fine with the idea as long as Roblox has a better moderation and appeal system that’s all, but honestly @railworks2 if you are that worried about getting involved with a malicious user just check their profile we don’t necessarily need this
No, but if you’re oblivious to Roblox’s track record of over moderation… yikes.
That one is easy to appeal, however there’s a history of some support team people basically telling you that you’re responsible for what’s in your group/game and to keep a closer eye on it in the future.
Yes we do but what does that have to do with the topic at hand?
What about trading? Many of the large developers are also involved in trading. In trading there’s often poisoned limiteds that go around in circulation, and someone might accidentally trade for one without knowing. Their account can get banned for this and it wouldn’t be fair to ban them on the devforum as it wouldn’t be fair. Now the idea for most bans is good, but false and unintentional bans this can be a problem.
They stay banned. Simple as that. We can go into the nichest of what-ifs but it still won’t change the fact that you got perm banned and that you shouldn’t be on the devforum with a perm banned account.
I dont understand[quote=“railworks2, post:1, topic:1000057, full:true”]
As a Roblox developer, if a developer gets their Roblox account deleted this action is not replicated to the DevForums. This could result in seriously inappropriate material to the forums.
This is specific to account deletions, other moderations like 3 days, warnings, etc are not part of this request.
If Roblox is able to address this issue, it would improve my experience using the forum because it would proactively reduce risk associated with banned users (such as misuse of the forums for account appeals and posting inappropriate content)
Why should Roblox “improve” moderation? Rather, why should someone still be allowed on the devforum if they are terminated on Roblox? Terminations can be undone, so it’s not really the end of the world if your account is unusable for a few days/weeks. It’s not right to continue being on the devforum if you got terminated on Roblox. And this would apply to terminations, not temporary 1-14 day bans. Your account is still here, not terminated, so this shouldn’t affect you.
We’re planning a change that automatically updates login status on the forum depending on what happens on roblox.com:
This would include logging people out if their moderation status changes.
I see some people suggest that the DevForum can be used for appealing account bans. This is not correct, for appealing a ban you should follow the steps on our support form at roblox.com/support. The teams who can repeal a moderation action on your account do not monitor the DevForum for these requests.
