Hello fellow Devforum members,
I am posting this petition on behalf of my friend TobiasGardiner, who owns the largest United Kingdom on ROBLOX (https://www.roblox.com/My/Groups.aspx?gid=2938975). He recently got banned for uploading improperly filtered chat in one of his group games. The problem with this, however, is that he has never (and I mean never) opened the studio for the game he got banned for. I have always been an advocate for TeamCreate (TC) and allowing certain ranks in groups to create and edit group games, but Roblox’s policy to punish and hold group and TC owners responsible for content (that they may not have uploaded) to their games is a huge step backwards.
This opens up a huge issue regarding account security. For example, if someone had a personal dispute with a group owner or TC owner and wanted to intentionally get them banned (or worse, terminated) all they would have to do is gain access to edit their game and upload improperly filtered chat or “Over 18” content without their consent. This idea is unfortunately not that far fetched.
This problem gets even worse with large group owners, or even a person that owns a lot of groups. TobiasGardiner owns a lot of groups that are linked to the main United Kingdom group, some of them with their own set of developers. As you can imagine, this gets impossible to keep track of. When he gets banned for something he didn’t do, he’s understandably furious.
These are some solutions he proposed:
Option A - Create a log that shows each person that last updated the game. Punish the last person to update the game when the violation in the Terms of Service started. Put the game under review and notify the owner.
Option B - Create a log that shows who created and edited what in studio. Punish the last person to edit the object in violation of the Terms of Service. Put the game under review and notify the owner.
Option C - Impose a place creation ban and take away edit powers on repeat offenders. Put the game in question under review and notify the owner. Punish the last person to update the game (Option A).
Option D - At the very least, stop punishing just the owner for offenses committed in group games and TC’s that multiple people have access to. Impose equal punishment for everyone who has had access to the game in the last 72 hours.
