With the recent announcement of display names, the outlook is grim. As we’ve seen through popular social media platforms that have separate usernames and display names, the work it takes to successfully impersonate someone is insanely easy.
With this new addition, I am calling for Roblox to add a proper verification system for developers, star creators, and Roblox staff members.
As we all know, it is part of human nature to not read more than one has to (normally). Still having the username being displayed won’t be enough to prevent impersonation. Having something similar to the Twitter verification tick would probably be the best course of action.
While this certainly wouldn’t totally stop impersonation it will severely limit its reach and impact.
What are your thoughts?
**edit: probably wouldn’t be necessary for Roblox staff & star members as they already have special signs in game
