Update the Image of the File Dropdown

https://developer.roblox.com/en-us/articles/Creating-Your-First-Game

This is the image you’re presented with when viewing the section “Publishing Your Product.” This image should be updated, as the dropdown has changed since the article’s time of writing. For example, “Save to Roblox as…” and “Publish to Roblox as…” do not appear in the dropdown, which may confuse users into thinking their version of Roblox Studio is outdated, etc.

Publish-to-Roblox

@icrann that is not the issue.

@OP I don’t think this needs to be changed. The only dropdown option that was used was “Publish to Roblox”, if there are missing options then readers will know out of common sense that there are more options. As long as “Publish to Roblox” still exists and isn’t renamed, the article is fine.

I agree that this should be changed.

With the logic that “with common sense they could figure it out”, 99% of the updates to the developer hub wouldn’t be a thing.

Take this typo for example:


Anyone with common sense would know its CharaterAdded:Wait(), not Character:Wait()… right?

Sure they could, but the page was still updated anyway.

There are even more insignificant errors that have been changed, even though anyone with common sense would know what they meant (or their brains would read it like there was no error in the first place)

It also would take like 4 seconds to update it anyways.

This is the image you’re presented with when viewing the section “Saving Your Work.” This image should be updated, as the dropdown has changed since the article’s time of writing. For example, “Save to Roblox as…” does not appear in the dropdown, which may confuse users into thinking their version of Roblox Studio is outdated, etc.

The same things happens in the Story Creator Challenge, because they reused the same image twice.

EDIT: Added more info

Believe it or not, this is still an issue in the most recent creator challenge: Build It, Play It.

The same exact, outdated image appears in every Save and Publish section.

In fact, the same exact image has been used for every single file dropdown in the website.

Let’s post the same flavor text now.

I feel the wording is wrong in that article. Surely it should be advising to save regularly, not publish regularly. Publishing regularly could result in you publishing half-finished scripts and possibly game-breaking changes.
