We have an important announcement for our developers.
After much consideration, Roblox has decided to close the Roblox public forums at https://forum.roblox.com/forum/. We believe the Roblox public forums are no longer capable of providing a positive environment and have been proven to be prone to excessive abuse. This change does not impact the developer forum as the environment here continues to be positive and collaborative.
Groups will continue to serve as a platform for information sharing, collaboration, and conversations on a variety of topics, interests, and teams. We will also continue to post announcements and information on our public read-only sections of the Developer Forum, and on the Roblox blog as appropriate.
The public forums are now read-only and will be shutting down completely on December 11, 2017. If you have any posts or information on the public forums that you would like to save, please do so as soon as possible.
You can learn more about these changes here.
If you have any comments, please let us know below!
Developer Relations Team
Thank you to everyone who has shared their feedback with us so far. Our teams are collecting this feedback and taking it into account. We understand this is not a great situation, whoever it was critical to address the abuse in the public forums.
As of recently we have been looking into multiple options to improve group functionality in the future. The goal is to empower community building as we go forward using groups. We understand the social element of Roblox is important for our developers as it helps you create a fully social community.
For now the alternative to discuss development would be the Roblox Developer Forum. If you know of any friends who are interested in joining the forum please share this link with them.
Our team has created another alternative for anyone with the role set basic member and above to inform your group communities about any new updates.
