Why has the asset marketplace been removed?

Hello, 3 days ago I found out there is a asset marketplace and now I think it’s removed? Does anyone know the reason behind it or what actually happend?


What asset marketplace?


Is this a bug, or is user created content now contraband?

The asset marketplace subforum. Are we denying it ever existed? Smells like conspiracy.


It was my favorite category, shame on roblox

Can you provide a link or a screenshot of said webpage?
That would be useful.

I’ve just noticed this myself, and the 2 topics I made in there are now also missing (though thankfully I already had them come to a close a good while ago).

This is more of a jokish guess as to why it was removed… since the creation of UGC and now Plugins can be sold, maybe free models are shifting over to just models and could eventually be sold, thus rendering that sub-forum useless (though I’d fail to see how you would prevent anyone from buying it, then just re-uploading it as free again (and then there’s the issue with people who like to steal places and such with those models in them)).

Perhaps it could be for more complicated reasons, or it could just be a legitimate mistake. We’ll just have to wait for an answer.

I’ve tried to reproduce this “bug” or try get more details, and it seems to be true. Asset Marketplace is non-existence.

I don’t really have screenshots of the asset marketplace, but it was basically a sub forum category where players could sell and buy assets to eachother for real life currency or robux

Yeah, I was in the middle of selling something when it mysteriously disappeared without warning:
This should have also included the asset marketplace along with ‘recruitment’ and ‘portfolios’, but I don’t see anything.


It is also worth noting that the pinned topic About the Collaboration category in #collaboration has also been altered recently.

Seems there surely is something going on that hasn’t been announced yet.

I thought this was only me. At first I assumed it was a bug/glitch but it looks like they removed it.


I can neither confirm nor deny the removal of this alleged “asset marketplace”

Jokes aside, it got filled with a lot of low-quality threads and assets, and was more trouble than it was worth, so it got bounced.


this whole post is a joke lol

They changed stuff arround a lot, yes a lot of categories and subs have been altered, not only #collaboration


It’s a good reason, BUT where will we ever find a place to sell!? So tragic! or we can just do it in #collaboration:recruitment

f in chat for public asset marketplace


The funny thing is, I could have sworn a few days ago someone trying to redirect someone else to the marketplace as they were selling their asset in the wrong forum category.

Now I understand.


I was in the middle of selling an item I’d made, but now where do I sell it??? Roblox please fix this. Alot of people sold stuff there…

It was shut down for a reason, just sell your stuff in #collaboration:portfolios


Oh no, that is like some people’s main source of income… If this is really getting removed then where can we sell stuff? Our portfolios?!


Please don’t post asset sales in #collaboration:portfolios, it will get flagged and removed. Just refrain from making those kinds of threads until an official announcement has been made.


Typically, if you’re able to live off of selling Roblox assets, it means you have a fanbase outside of the developer forums. These people can sell their assets on other platforms that isn’t the devforums.

On a side note, you get an error now if you click on the asset marketplace about me page.
