UGC Quality Control Suggestion
I’ve taken some time to compile my ideas for UGC into this little post. Feel free to leave your suggestions or concerns below in the comments and be sure vote on the poll attached.
Edited: I’m already aware of everything they announced during the session at RDC, these are just additional ideas I had.
- ANYONE can upload UGC
- Limit of “X” UGC Uploads Per Week (more if you have Premium)
- UGC items can be "Liked’ by other players
- When UGC assets reach “X” amount of likes it will be published for purchase
- To prevent bots from liking, you must have Roblox Premium to “Like” UGC
Lego’s UGC Creation System
The Lego Company has a very similar idea that’s already in effect on their site. Users can upload set suggestions that they build using Lego software, and other users with paid accounts can like/upvote the set. If the set reaches 10,000 likes it gets produced into a real buyable product. Here’s an example of a set that has recently reached the requirement:
Now, of course, there are many other things Roblox could add to improve quality control of UGC, while still allowing all players to upload UGC items, but I just wanted to share the basics of my ideas.
Thanks for taking the time to read through my thoughts. If you agree, or disagree, I have a poll attached to this post. If you any other questions, ideas, or concerns be sure to reply below.
