As a Roblox developer, it is currently too hard to reliably find work.
The closing of #collaboration has harmed not only myself but hundreds, if not thousands of other developers, and has slowed development in general, from large studios to individual developers.
#collaboration, while still housing scammers and ghosters, was still one of the best places I have used to find commissions. For reference, I updated my portfolio and within a day I had 3 messages from people wanting to hire me. And contrary to that, I have yet to receive a single message on the talent hub despite being there for months.
Some may say that the talent hub is an adequate replacement but this simply isn’t the case. I and many other developers can attest to the fact that the talent hub is objectively worse than #collaboration. Despite being in testing for months, and having hundreds of testers, the talent hub was released with a small character limit, no ability to embed images, no mobile support, and a terrible layout overall. Those are just a few of the problems and there are so many more that I’m not going to list, because this post would be much longer.
This post isn’t to reiterate what’s already been said. Rather, it’s to call on roblox to listen to us, which they have been reluctant to do.
If Roblox is able to address this issue, it would improve my, and many other developers’ experiences using the forum because we would be given a much more reliable place to find work and hire developers.
