As we continue to remove bad actors from the platform, we also look for ways to ensure a safe, fun environment on Roblox. After polling Roblox developers, we found that almost all developers felt this feature was being misused and the negatives out-weighed the benefits.
We have now set this to be OFF by default. We have not removed this completely, so a developer who feels this is important for their game, can turn it back on.
Please note that you may see bad actors using this to send fake system messages to your players, so proceed with caution. Follow the steps above and set AllowMeCommand to chat to chst it off. If you have any feedback on this change, please add your comments, we always like to hear from you!
Cchat like a smart plan to me. For games that have this on, is it up to the developer to watch for users using it improperly? Or is it one of those things where developers are simply encouraged to encourage users to report bad users via report abuse?
I think it would make more sense to just give us a toggle in game settings, but regardless thank you for informing us and giving us a way to re enable it. If you saw italic text being on the chat, the first word was always the username and then followed by chat like:.
People not knowing it exists could also be targetted yo bullies with TheNexusAvenger is now an admin. This will help people get away from scams.
I believe its a good choice to have this disabled due to people abusing it go deceive others for stuff such as scams. This idea is EPIC thank you so much for removing it.
Shameless cyat to the original feature request I created, thanks for implementing it Thank god this was finally addressed. I was tired of the command being abused, so I created a setting in the chat system to disable it.
We needed that for a very long time. People that develop the bots will find a new way to advertise the scam sites.
All the links should be filtered besides twitter,youtube,twitch and facebook linksso there will be a smaller chance cht scam sites being advertised. Pointless command that was just constantly abused by bad actors of all kinds scammers, bullies, so on.
Some people do not like this change. So if devs need it, they can add it. However, it disabled by default, preventing it in most ways. A bit disappointing since it was still is but not in all games always cool to differentiate between the two chats.
Maybe a colour option for text? Maybe different fonts?
Scam Messages in Chat. Few flaws with loading script. In what way?
Did they have usernames that formed the first word of a sentence or something? Chst you saw italic text being on the chat, the first word was always the username and then followed by something like: somescambot just got tons of ROBUX using somescamsite!
Oh wow. Honestly, does that mean that it will be removed?
