Hey! We are back with a new, improved, completely revamped, Status+! We cannot wait to continue supporting developers across the platform by alerting them when Roblox may be having issues!
We’ve exploded in growth over the last few weeks and are excited to share our features and what is next for us!
Status+ is an automatic alternative to status.roblox.com. We built our own backend in JS, created a bot, and have started tracking Roblox! Every 1.5 minutes, we send a request to all core endpoints that Roblox has, and wait for a response. From there, we check and confirm whether or not the systems are up. If they are, we send a message to our server and all servers using our bot (if set up is done correctly)!
Our automation gives us the advantage over the main status site as we are automated and can detect these outages faster!
As most developers use discord, they can easily get a notification when there is an issue!
Status+ is now based around discord! You can find our discord below:
We recently got into server discovery and have over 5k members! Come check us out for instant outage notifications, FFlag notifications, and more!
We also offer a verified discord bot (thanks @railworks2 for helping us out with verification!)
For tips to set up our bot, check out our #guide channel in our server! The bot invite is below:
We’ve reached over 400 servers and are used and trusted by .gg/roblox, the largest unoffical Roblox discord server, with over 600k members!
We know some of you may be disappointed to hear our old website is being shutdown soon as it uses our old backend. However, never fear, we have huge plans for a new website soon, and a (paid) API! We will keep you updated as much as possible on these new updates, stay tuned and check out our server for more details!
This project could not be accomplished without the work of our team, I enjoy giving credit where deserved, so thank you @User9684 for being our lead bot developer and helping us out a ton! Thanks @railworks2 for helping using with verification and a twitter bot!
Status+ is a fully automatic system that is separate from the normal status page. We are able to track and detect outages much quicker than the normal page, as it is manually updated by a staff member. Our tools detect these automatically-- much quicker too!
We also offer tracking FFlags, which are internal Roblox features that can be switched on and off quickly.
We are also in favor of an easier way of checking this status, so you can get pinged or notify your server automatically in the event of issues. (This is very helpful as your game’s userbase may want to be notified of these issues before blaming you!)
Thank you so much! We hope you check us out soon!
