Heya! How are you doing? Hopefully doing great today!
Today, I would like to talk about the new system that appeared to be released some days ago, the authorization website.
The function of https://authorize.roblox.com is to connect with your account once pressing the login button throughout the first pages of Developer Forums. However, in my perspective, I believe that in some areas there are pretty unnecessary…
Firstly, it is quite unnecessary as needing to do a bit of time process to log in to Developer Forums by connecting to your account. It was better when the site could detect if you are already connected to the Roblox platform in your current browser.
And, secondly, I believe truly you do not need to have another option to change your current Roblox account to an alternative, because eventually, it would give errors in case both of them have the same e-mails, leading you to create another e-mail account, and making frustration to only access successfully to the forum.
Therefore, in my understanding, releasing a new login is a technological throwback. So, in my point of view, if we understand this as a safe way for users, truly needs solutions such as quick questions like in Google Security system, “Are you trying to connect?”, providing information about the individual at what time, location, and device they did. If it is you, they would be sending you a code to your e-mail, Authenticator, or, as another way, give you confirmation buttons via mobile.
Another solution would be instead of having a button to switch to another account at the Roblox authorization site, to make Developer Forums’ profile options up/down on “Log Out”.
Extra: It would be easier having a link inside of the Roblox platform that, once clicking, the user is going to get directed to the forum’s platform, without needing to make a new account, as you are already on the website. This gains more time, and less work.
