Where is the new avatar editor – a question that is being asked by ROBLOXians. The ROBLOX Blog post explains that the website’s old and outdated avatar editor is being replaced by a new, updated avatar editor within… More
So, as you all know, the Halloween Event for Roblox is on right now! This is another dev-vent, but it’s actually looking pretty good. (A dev-vent is when the admins give a free hat if you do a thing in a game.) This is the place where you can find where to get all the hats. If you do not want to know where the hats are and how to get them, this is not the post you want. For the rest of you, come forward to find the hats IF YOU DARE!
But, Play, why do we need to know where they are? It always tells you.
Not in this event. It gives you a riddle, and then we are left to figure them out. Some are hard, some are easy.
Clue 1: Time to show off your style! You’re going to have to bust out your spookiest design skills and place in the top three in this fashion-focused game’s new holiday category.
This one was easy. The game is Design It. All you had to do was place in the Top 3 in the new Halloween round. Easy enough.
Clue 2: Full moon’s got you on a prowl tonight? You’ll need to think like a werewolf and catch enough hiders in a single round!
Not as easy. The game is Blox Hunt. You need to find two hiders as a seeker.
Clue 3: It’s not Halloween without candy, and where are customers going to stock up on trick or treating goods? At your store of course. Make sure you sell enough for the whole neighborhood.
Not easy unless you have played before. The game is Retail Tycoon. You have to sell 250 pieces of candy.
Clue 4: Need a quick break from all those scary frights? Why not try out this leisurely hobby? Prove that you’re a master angler for a chance to win a prize.
The game is MeepCity. You need to catch 100 total fish. Sounds easy, right? (I wouldn’t know, I’ve never played MeepCity.)
Clue 5: Collecting candy in your neighborhood? Easy. Collecting candy while explosives rain down around your head? Not so easy! But if you can snag enough, and survive the bombs, you’ll get a prize!
Should be easy. The game is Super Bomb Survival. You need to pick up 20 pieces of candy while avoiding the bombs.
Clue 6: Dinosaurs can be pretty frightening on their own, but the bigger they get, the scarier they become! If you can survive long enough, you might just earn a prize for your efforts.
The game is Dinosaur Simulator. You need to survive ’til you are in the juvenile stage.
Welp, there it is. Now go out there and get the hats before they are gone! (They leave 2 and a half days after this post is published.) I’m Playittilitshot, signing off.
This post was due two weeks ago, but there was a delay.
ROBLOX has finally released R15, a new version of the ROBLOX avatar, in beta stage. R6, the old version of the ROBLOX avatar, only has 6 body parts, while the R15 version has 15 parts.
In the “Avatar” page, you can choose between R6 and R15 avatar for your character. Even if your character is set as R15, when playing a game, it can only be in R15 avatar if the game allows it, otherwise, if it only allows R6, your character will be set to R6 in-game. The developer also has the option to let the user choose, so that means if the developer had chosen this option, what avatar your character is using right now, will be used in-game.
Since R15 is in beta, packages and other items may not be supported with it. Therefore, some of the items you are wearing in R6 avatar may not work in R15 avatar. ROBLOX says that they are working on this, and soon, all your items will fit properly in the new R15 avatar.
With R15, your ROBLOX character can do much more!
So I wrote this post today to notify ROBLOXians that the limits of uploading audio files to ROBLOX are constantly changing. In 2014, audio files would only be up to 15 seconds, then changed later on to 2 minutes, which allowed ROBLOXians to upload songs that were cut at the 2-minute mark. Uploading audio would cost R$100.
According to ROBLOX Wikia, ROBLOX had increased the limit of the song length to 6 minutes, with a maximum file size of 10 megabytes in late September. The Wikia also said that the price of uploading the audio depended on the length of the audio.
ROBLOX published a post on their blog about the new audio update. However, ROBLOX Wikia says that two days after ROBLOX had published the post, they had changed the limit of the length of the audio back to 2 minutes, maximum file size 8 megabytes, and the price of audio had changed to R$100. ROBLOX had never notified us that they had reverted the limits of uploading audio.
Let us know what you think in the comments!
On September 22, 2016, ROBLOX released a new feature that makes your account more secure. It is called 2-Step Verification, and once enabled, sends an email whenever someone tries to login to your account whether it is you, or a stranger.
So how this works is when someone attempts to get into your account, it will ask for a 6-digit code that is provided in the email that ROBLOX has sent to you. Type in the code in the box, and click “Verify.” You can choose to skip the verification for 30 days on that device on the verification screen below the “Verify” button.
2-Step Verification is available on all platforms whether it’s your Xbox One, desktop, or mobile device. It makes your account more secure and harder for intruders to get in (unless they know the password to your email account).
Take a look at this video tutorial for instructions:
Hopefully, ROBLOX comes up with more ways to make your account safe and secure. This is only one of the features that can keep your account in normal status, free from hackers and intruders.
I have been so busy the previous week and a half!

A new ROBLOX update means more bad stuff. Recently, ROBLOX updated the whitelist/blacklist system so it captures more of the bad stuff, including some URLs that ROBLOXians post.
Well, that positive update also brought in a lot of negatives. It seems the filter thinks “good” words are “bad” words. It takes out the word and puts in hashtags.
However, sometimes it cancels out a whole message and/or makes it become unreadable. Some groups post in the forums to keep them running, like Dunkin’ Donuts ROBLOX. They post their handbook on the forum.
DD staff reported that after the filter system update, people that sent in applications would have it turned to mostly hashtags. Their group cannot function correctly if no one can get an application.
ROBLOXians were tired of this new update and began to protest on the forums.
I joined ROBLOX in 2013. All chat systems were fine. The whitelist/blacklist didn’t exist yet. Instead, if you were cursing/cussing, the chat message would be sent as blank.
The first whitelist/blacklist system turned out to be fine, why update it so it’s worse?
How about your idea? Comment below!
Sorry, there was a maintenance that lasted almost an hour.
It was unexpected.
