Upcoming changes to the Public Roblox Forum

It’s important to have a place dedicated solely to discussion. It helps to keep the rest of the site uncluttered.

Couldn’t agree more.

Personally quite happy with this change. Although I do feel sorry for those who got over 100,000 posts they’ll have to live with it and move on.

Shutting down the forums will affect groups as they are unable to post rules, notices, and many others. The group overhaul I do expect to fix this hopefully. I do think shutting down the forums is for the better.

YESYESYES THANK YOU FOR REMOVING THAT TOXIC POOL!!

Regardless, my only concern is LMaD and C&G, can there be a group AND trade revamp to accommodate this removal? I’ll be making a thread about my idea for the trade page, which I’ll update here with the link.

But yeah, archive the forums. Memories were made there and I want to relive them.

I hope for the love of god the forums itself stay archived. I have many discussions and threats that are somewhat dear to me.

You should find and save these discussions if you want to keep them.

Quite unfortunate. That’s going to be a hell load of copying.

Should of revamped the forums like you guys wanted for like…ever now rather than closing them down. Regardless of the toxicity, the forums did have their use for discussions here and there. With people publicly. NBC users have limited group slots. This isn’t good for discussion.

the Trade. group is going grow from the sudden removal of LMaD, they have no where else to go besides groups/games

and Trade. being the largest and most active trading group it basically gives a sweet boost

The censorship of Roblox goes too far in many ways these days. Expressing your opinion becomes harder by the day. Removing the public forums is another decision I’m not entirely for. But still, I only saw the sunny side. For aspiring developers (who are not part of this devforum) however it was a position to ask questions about certain techniques some use to do whatever you intend on making/scripting.

But still, certain spaghetti haired immature ones make it bad for everyone.

They say they plan on considering a new Forum system.

Hopefully it’s very similar to this one.

I wouldn’t be here/have done anything besides being a simple Roblox player if it weren’t for the forums

however I’m inclined to believe the removal of the public forums goes back to moderation, it takes intense resources that isn’t always available with a crowd that simply cannot be tamed.

even with all the safety measures put in place, the moderation still slacked because of the pure quantity of forum breaking activity located on the forums.

I hope roblox sets up another discourse forum that disables image uploading/embeds, has a whitelist link filter, and would work to replace the old one. Since discourse has built in anti-spam, similar topic checking, and community flagging, though i think people would abuse that.
