  • RE: What are cookies on the forum, and how do I get them?

    Cookies are a form of positive reinforcement to show gratitude in the response of the user. Whether the overall quality of the message is admirable or you found information within the post to be useful to your goal, cookies are a way to show that a community member is going some great work.

    They are essentially a second form of reputation apart from the website.

  • Tutorial Suggestions

    I want to work on making video Scripting Tutorials soon and want to get everyone's suggestions on what "goals" I should aim for.

    By "goals", I mean a final product for the script or something practical many people would want to learn how to do. This may be, how to make a gun or making a team switching Gui.

    If you post your suggestions I will do what I can to make a tutorial on the topic and credit you in the video.

    Thank you in advance for your suggestions.

  • RE: Wishes to Roblox (Basically ideas/features that you wish Roblox would add)

    Kind of wish Roblox would add an 18+ filter that allowed for those eighteen years or older to be given the ability to chat a little more freely.

    Roblox censors words by context now but it's rather a bad context system that should have improved in the past couple years. The context filter has the tendency to censor words like the, and, Private (in the context of Private Message), "hacker." (it's only if you have the period at the end), five digit characters at one point, Roblox wiki links, and probably a list of other innocent words in innocent contexts that do end up getting filtered.

    With the white/blacklist filters, Roblox is starting to make it rather annoying for the 18+ community to chat on the website. I'm simply suggesting to have a little more of a relaxed filtering policy on the 18+ community. Clearly, bad words are not to be shown but allow the community to have a little more room to say those innocent words. I understand the system may get abused, news flash: Someone will always abuse the system. Nothing is perfect.

  • RE: roblox has hit a new low

    The auto-generated images are free. In this event, to prevent people from flooding Roblox's image moderation queue it was necessary for them to set a limit. It's rather disappointing, however, seeing auto generated images entering moderation queues, but I can somewhat understand Roblox's stance on the issue.

    As before with the auto generated images, a user may make a rather inappropriate place and the thumbnail clearly presents that. In fact, this exact issue occurred on mother's day (of 2014 I believe it was). Since the good chunk of the people that would play those games were young immature boys, those games made it to the front page rather quickly. As many can tell Roblox's moderation team did not appreciate this and took them down. Personally, though, I believe Roblox should have implemented the auto generated image moderation within days of the event but some other event may have lead to the institution of this feature.

    From a parent's perspective, the website might be seen as a place with relaxed guidelines on user creation and try to prevent their younger children from playing. Additionally, parents, people in general, want to see what they are paying for. If a parent were to go to the front games page and, like the issue I just described, saw the content of that nature, they likely would keep their child off of Roblox and not purchase Builders Club or Robux.

    There also comes into account the legal aspects as "adult content" isn't supposed to be easily accessible to minors. For a website designed for kids, there is that chance of legal issues and the possibility of lawsuits.

    The topic may go more in depth and there may be other reasons behind the regulation of auto generated images but these are some key points I believe seem logical. I am not a Roblox employee myself and I certainly am not speaking on behalf of the corporation. I am simply expressing my insight on the topic and welcome anyone to provide their opinions on the matter.

  • RE: Please, stop answering in the comments.

    There is an option where if a user updates their question title to include [Solved] it will mark the question as answered.

  • RE: Please, stop answering in the comments.

    For me, I see comments as a way to post theories as to what is actually going wrong.

    You've got people that don't post full code or are otherwise jerks on the website in the end. I find the comments to be a safe place to explain a problem and the steps to fix that problem. If that solution does work, then you just blew that rep. If the suggestion doesn't work, I don't believe you are able to get any downvotes to your comments.

    Answers I find to be an area where you are sure of your solution. Comments are when you want to have the grey area filled in and provide suggestions as to what is going wrong.

  • RE: How did we get our usernames?

    I chose my username back in 2012 when signing up for ROBLOX. I was just wanting to play some games with a friend and just needed a username. Of course Megagamer came to mind and by 2012 that username was already taken.

    At the time, I was into leet speak. I knew what it was and decided to adjust my username to it. I figured if you write out a g it looks somewhat like a 9. The three written backwards may even look like an E.

    As for the R at the end of my username, I have no idea why I have it capitalized. I guess I preferred both the first and last character to be capitalized in my name.

    That is the story of how I got my username.
