What Not to Post

There are many places around Roblox to make posts or otherwise communicate with your fellow players. All of the below rules apply to any area of the website where you are able to post content except where a specific area is directly mentioned. This includes, but is not limited to, the forums, titles of items/games/groups, descriptions of items/games/groups, user blurbs, status updates, comments, chat, etc.

  • Do not post about any subjects or topics that are not permitted under the general rules as well as specifically the following:
    • Racism
    • Hate Speech
    • Gender bias
    • Looking for Dates or dating partners
    • Alcohol or drugs

    • Nazism or Neo Nazism
    • Mature content
  • Do not post profanity in any form
    • The filter blocks most profanity, but misspellings and disguising bad language in order to bypass the language filters is also not permitted
  • Do not post flame bait or other content intended to create flame wars
    • You are welcome to your opinions and to disagree with one another but do not attack (flame) or insult others for any reason
    • If you are a member of a religious or political group, Roblox is not the place to attack or attempt to convert others with different views
  • Do not post personal attacks
    • You are welcome to have opinions about others, but you are not permitted to say negative things about others. This includes calling others hackers, scammers, cheats or other names
    • Calling out others for bad behavior of any kind is not permitted
    • Use the abuse report system to notify the moderators; posting a link to their profile is the same as naming their name – don’t do it!
  • Do not post offsite links
    • An offsite link is any URL that goes to a site outside of Roblox.com, including Roblox fan sites. 
      • Exceptions to this rule are Twitch.tv, YouTube and Twitter links which are not shortened by t.co. However, if you are posting in the forum, be sure that you are posting those in the appropriate area and that they are not off topic
      • For the safety of our users, we allow only certain websites to be linked to from Roblox
        Exception: Site links that allowed to be posted on Roblox
        • *.roblox.com/ (anything that ends in .roblox.com is allowed)
        • Twitch.tv
        • Youtube.com/
        • Youtu.be/ (YouTube's URL shortened)
        • Twitter.com/
          • (t.co/ (Twitter's URL shortened) is NOT allowed, as it can be used to mask non-Twitter URLs.)
  • Do not post about your suspensions, warnings or other moderation actions against any of your or others’ accounts.
  • Talking about your or others’ moderations actions on the forums is not allowed.
    • Please note that we do want to hear non-account specific feedback about the moderation system. To let us know your feedback, please post it in the Suggestions and Ideas forum
    • If you have moderation complaints specific to your account, email appeals@roblox.com
  • Do not post Unofficial Trades
    • The official way to trade is to use the Roblox Trade System for item trades (Found by clicking on “Trade” on the tool bar). No other method of trading is permitted
    • Trading outside of these systems may leave you with little or no recourse should the trade prove inequitable or fraudulent
    • Trading accounts, selling BC, groups or Robux to each other are not allowed
  • Do not post raffles or contests
    • We do not allow user-run raffles or contests because it's very common that the prizes are never delivered. User-run contests and raffles are often scams to get people to come to a place. Don't do it!
  • Do not post spam in any form
    • Spam comes in many forms. The most common are:
    • Saying the same thing over and over
    • Saying something incomprehensible or just way off topic for the forum
    • Posting something in order to force others to scroll the page (called scrolling or page stretching)
  • Do not Post In the wrong forum
    • Each forum has a topic explained in its description
    • If you are not certain which forum you should post in, PM a mod and ask
    • Posts in the wrong forum may be moved or deleted without warning
    • Repeat posts may be flagged as spam
  • Do not re-post staff-deleted posts
    • A staff member deleted what was posted for a reason. Re-posting it will probably get it deleted again and increase the chance you will receive consequences
    • If your post was in a forum thread, you should review the forum's rules, PM a mod or email info@roblox.com and ask why your thread was deleted so you can better understand the rules
  • Do not post in bad forum threads
    • When you see a bad thread, just report it
    • Posting in the thread just bumps it and associates your name with the bad content. Additionally, it could get you moderated. Even if your post title and body are OK, you can still get in trouble for posting in a bad thread. Just don’t do it!
  • Do not post forum sigs that are larger than 1 line
    • Your signature line (sig) is to be 1 line tall at the most.
    • The reason we want it so short is because so many posts are only 1 line, and it’s weird to have a 1 line post and a giant sig
  • Do not post about raids on other sites or forums
    • Raiding other sites or Roblox forums is not allowed. It’s just plain uncivilized
  • Don’t be rude
    • Rudeness is not welcome. Examples of what not to post, “Get out”, “dumb idea”, “no support”, “no, just no”. Those are all rude and not at all helpful

Roblox Staff

  • As in all areas of the Roblox Site, you must listen to Roblox Staff and heed what they say. Warnings to stop a certain behavior, whether it’s in a forum post, PM, in-game or a suspension message, are serious
  • Roblox Staff are exempt from some of the rules we have for users. For example Staff can post offsite links because their posts are reviewed by the management for appropriateness
