Important Announcement Regarding Closure of Forum
As the community continues to grow and evolve, our vision is to create an environment where everyone is welcome to share their passion for Roblox. The current structure for our Forums does not allow us to maintain the high standards that we feel are so important for nurturing a constructive and positive environment.
After much consideration, we've made the decision to close these public forums. Please consider using these alternative communication methods:
There are groups that are available to serve as places for discussion and collaboration on any topic or interest. You can even create a new group for any topic that doesn't exist yet. You can search for a group here: https://www.roblox.com/groups/join or create new groups here: https://www.roblox.com/groups/create. You can also advertise your group to engage with others with your interests.
Our developer forums have read-only sections available where all users can read about important game development and platform announcements: https://devforum.roblox.com/
You can always catch-up on the latest news and features here at our blog: https://blog.roblox.com/
We’re committed to providing players with a place where they can continue safely engaging in interesting discussions about playing and creating amazing experiences on Roblox. This coming year, we'll be investigating options to re-build forums that better serve you, our community, and our goals in providing a safe and constructive environment. As of today, the Forums will be read-only. Please save any content that you might want to keep as these public forums will be closed on Monday, December 11, 2017.
