Roblox Services Are Back Online

Thank you Roblox for working hard to get the platform back up and running, however I do have a few questions regarding the Chipotle event. The days that roblox was shutdown, is there still a way to obtain the Chipotle event items from those days?

I’m sorry to say this but even if Studio could be run offline, you still likely wouldn’t have been able to deploy your game’s Halloween update in time since even the Roblox api went down.

Working on game despite an outage means I am prepared when the site comes back up (if we had offline studio). However, me being unable to work on game because said application needs a constant internet connection hindered my ability to be prepared (how it is now).

I love the irony of this page being unavailable to me given the topic.

Regardless, can you please make it so if core systems go haywyre we dont lose access to Studio, we want to put safeguards in for stuff like daily streaks if this ever happens again

Thank you for the detailed update and big shoutout to the engineers who fixed it. :green_heart:

Not to look a gift horse in the mouth, but I figure there’s no harm in asking - any chance this exploration could extend to game discoverability? Games with smaller/medium player counts have been decimated by the site outage and will take a while to recuperate.

It’d be cool to temporarily have a few custom game sorts for the purpose of bolstering up games who had their DAU/MAU drop drastically from the downtime.

If you make a GET http request to the page you can get the html code and make it into a .html file, from there just open the file in your browser. (And yes, I’m aware this is a long complicated system, for something that should be simple)

Here are some steps provided by @Reinitialized that solved a bunch of people’s issues:

Hey guys, if you’re still not able to access Roblox at this time, you can try clearing your DNS cache to see if resolves your issue. If this does not work, this means either Roblox has yet to open up in your region or you have some other form of caching probably out of your control. This will not work for everyone, but it may help some

I cannot open the link, is there any possible technical explanation on what happenned (assuming it isn’t confidental or something)?

Also I believe this is the longest Roblox outage as of 2021 in history (most likely?)

While there are no data loss for players who did not play during the outage, there are numerous of reports of data loss of players who were playing just before ROBLOX completely shut down

Can we also get the studio offline feature back? This is really helpful for situations where your own wifi has an outage or you dont have access to wifi or when the roblox servers are down.

That way you can still continue development while the engineers work on a solution or anywhere you go.

This used to exist, but i have noticed that it was taken out some time ago, which left me and a lot of other users unable to work in offline mode on progress.

How do you define an “Earning Developer?”
Only those who’ve DevEx’ed or?

Hey, not sure if this is the right place to reply with this. But it seems that I’m having issues with the website, Roblox says that it’s up!


I’m using the Brave browser, but this issue seems to be happening with other browsers.
