When playing many of the fantastic Roblox games created and maintained by our talented builders, you will have available many different pieces of information to help keep you informed about what is going on and who you are playing with. Here we shall go over some of these elements.
The leaderboard is a box located in the upper right corner of the game window. It is here that you will be given information about the people you are playing with. This can include the teams they are on, their current score in the game and status icons. You can even send a friend request, follow a player, block someone, or report abuse simply by clicking on a player's name. Leaderboards will look something like this:
Roblox developers can learn how to best utilize the leaderboards for their games by clicking here.
So you may have a grasp on what exactly the leaderboards are, but may be wondering what those little icons next to people's names mean. Lets go through each one of them:
- - Roblox Admins
- - The current game's creator
- - Premium Members
- - Your friends
- - Players that have requested you to be their friends
- - Players that have not yet accepted your friend request
- - Players that are following you
- - Players that you are following
- - Players that you are following that are also following you
In-Game friend requests and following
While playing a game, you may find that there's another player you would like to follow or become friends with. If that's the case, there is no need to leave the game to start this process. To send a friend request to someone, simply click on their name in the leaderboard and select Send Friend Request. You may also choose to follow or unfollow them from this menu if you would rather.
If one of your fellow players sends you a friend request, a notification will pop up in the lower right-hand corner of your screen. You may accept or decline by clicking the corresponding button. Alternatively, you may click on their name in the leaderboard and accept or decline from there.
Blocking and reporting abuse in-game
If someone is harassing, bullying or spamming you, you can block them or report them to our moderators inside of game as well. Please read the How to Block Another User help article and the How to Report Rule Violations help article.
There are three types of notifications that you may see pop up to represent things that have happened in-game. These will appear in grey boxes in the lower right corner (as can be seen in the above picture) and will alert you to having earned a badge, earned player points, or that you have received a friend request from one of your fellow players. These are represented by the following images:
- - A friend request will be indicated by an icon of the player's avatar
- - This icon appears if you have earned a badge
- - This icon indicates that you have earned player points
