Talent Hub Now Supports Embedding Images, Visual Search and More

Hello!

We are super excited to be announcing updates to Talent Hub that make it easier for you to showcase your visual work and communicate with others on the platform.

Uploading Embedded Images

We are now officially supporting uploading embedded images on Creator Pages! This means any Creator can easily upload images associated with an experience through the ‘Add Media’ button and drag and drop. These images can be easily re-ordered and expanded into lightboxes when clicked on to more prominently show the portfolio of the Creator.

Visual Search

We are also giving the option to view the images from a Creator Page visually right in search so that Job posters can immediately identify past work that resonates with them without having to click into the Creator Page itself:

Allow List Domains Text Filter

Last, but certainly not least, we are expanding the allowed list of domains that you can share on the Talent Hub so that important information doesn’t get falsely moderated as frequently. We are particularly excited about making it easier to share Discord links as we know this was a big pain point, but as a reminder, Roblox is not able to mediate disputes arising from communications or interactions that take place off of Roblox. The full list of domains we allow are listed on this page: Talent Hub.

FAQs

How do we submit even more suggestions for what to whitelist to improve text filters?

  • If there is a domain you think we should allow, please tell us what domain should be whitelisted, an example of a message that got moderated, what it would look like if it didn’t get moderated, and why it is important not to moderate this domain in the thread below.

What will happen to the images already added to Talent Hub through markdown?

  • We will be phasing out support of images added through markdown, so we encourage Creators to re-upload images added in markdown through the new image upload process as media uploaded this way are more discoverable through Visual Search.

All of the above features were highly requested from the community, so we thank you for your constant feedback on the forum and look forward to improving Talent Hub so we can empower even more dream teams on Roblox!

Thanks,

The Creator Resources Team

Could we keep the ability to use inline Markdown images anymore? I agree that it shouldn’t be possible to have offsite images for privacy reasons, so instead of linking offsite images we could just link to Image-type assets:

Roblox can still embed these images in the rich search interface, and creators can make more decisions about formatting. This is similar to how Discourse does it:

I’m happy that images are now supported in the Talent Hub, this is a change I’ve been asking about since all the way back in October and I’m glad it has finally been implemented.

Is there any word on when the character limit for experience posts will be increased from 500 characters? I still feel this is too low for going into detail about experiences and tasks and it feels restricting compared to sites like LinkedIn’s 2000 character limit on experiences.

Nevertheless, it looks like the Talent Hub is headed in an exciting direction and I’m excited to see what else the team has to bring.

Yay this is good now, a new improvement to TALENT HUB

FINALLY

Now, the talent hub is slightly more usable! Thank you!


Using rbxassets for images on the talent hub would be awful, it not only compresses but the moderation on the main site is far worse than the DET here.

cool!

Makes the talent hub better! BUTTTTTTT we still dont need a filter. The talent hub is meant for developers. It limits devs in their creativity as they would be limited to a filter. Not to mention you can’t send discord tags(from the last time I checked.)

Still a good feature nonetheless :slight_smile:

Love to see these changes coming through! Is there any update on mobile site compatibility?

The same moderation is being used for the Talent Hub and the main site. It only requires that your image is less than 1024x in both dimensions, it doesn’t compress your images (although compression isn’t a bad thing especially if you want your portfolio to load quickly, and the talent hub does downscale your images)

  1. Is there a plan to increase the character limit?

  2. Again, I don’t appreciate the lack of transparency with Roblox and their developer community. Nobody knew when this update was going to be released.

Devforum: Just paste an image and post, you’re good

Roblox: Wait 20 minutes and get denied for uploading a red square

I thought you were comparing the Talent Hub and the site, not the DevForum.

When you upload images to Talent Hub, you are uploading normal assets behind the scenes, so the moderation is the same. They might as well allow you to link assets in the markdown yourself.

Next up: Remove unnecessary ID verification requirements. This is what is hurting the Talent Hub the most in my opinion.

Not a huge fan of the way images will be moderated but other than that, I really like these amazing changes :smiley:! Thank you, Roblox.

A little too late, for over half a year, hard working developers who try and make ends meet had DevForum Portfolios taken away from them and had no ability to even post images on this corporate move to raise stock prices or some other angle.

If you want to truly make dream teams, then please show that with a little more than the ability to post images after such a long time.
