A ban occurs when a player breaks the ROBLOX Terms of Service. Only ROBLOX staff can ban users from the ROBLOX client.
Players are given one or two warnings before being banned. If the violation is serious, such as phishing or violation of federal law, accounts can be deleted without any prior notices.
An in-game ban, not given by ROBLOX staff, only restricts the player's access to a specific game. Players with in-game bans still have access to the ROBLOX client.
There are eleven main ban levels:
|Name of ban||Description|
All of the player's forum posts are replaced with the text [ Content Deleted ], and the user can't create new posts in the forums.
|0x1 error ban||A player, who created 18+ content, gets this type of ban. A 0x1 error is displayed when trying to connect to a game.|
This ban occurs when a "parent" of a user contacts ROBLOX and requests their account to be closed. Similar occurrences have happened on the Off-Topic forum.
This moderation action reminds players to follow the rules of ROBLOX. No account suspension occurs. Reminders typically occur for new users and minor violations of the ROBLOX Terms of Service.
This moderation action is similar to a reminder. It warns users to follow the ROBLOX Terms of Service. Warnings occur for slightly more serious violations of the Terms of Service or for repeated reminders.
|1 day ban||
A player's account is locked for one day.
|3 day ban||
A player's account is locked for three days.
|7 day ban||
A player's account is locked for seven days (one week).
|14 day ban||A player's account is locked for fourteen days (two weeks). The player is warned that any subsequent violations of the ROBLOX Terms of Service will result in an account deletion.|
A player's account is permanently locked. Users who try to view a terminated player profile will see The item you requested does not exist. Very serious violations of the Terms of Service will result in an account deletion.
|Poison ban||This is the 2nd most powerful ban. A player's account is deleted, and the player is prohibited from creating new accounts. All accounts with identical addresses are locked from use. But they can still play as a guest.|
This is the most powerful ban. All accounts associated with a specific IP address are locked from ROBLOX. An IP ban is shown as a 403 Forbidden HTTP error. IP bans are typically reserved for severe violations of the Terms of Service or federal law. They also cannot play as guest.
Bans and Exploiting
Exploiting is a violation of the Terms of Service and can result in moderation action. For this reason, exploiters commonly do their business exploiting on alternate or guest accounts. Because of this it is very difficult to capture an exploiter. However, there are of course methods to catching them. Exploiting was so rampant and difficult to catch on Shedletsky's SFOTH that Shedletsky created a special badge that is normally unobtainable; any person who obtains the badge through exploitation is instantly banned.
Users are encouraged to appeal a moderation action through an email to email@example.com. If the moderation action is deemed to be unfair, it can be lifted.
- Some users claim to have been banned for no logical reason. The moderator MSE6  is rumored to ban users for no reason, such as for being Christian.
- Using a proxy or other means of changing an IP address in order to access one's terminated account will result in the poison of that IP.
- A bug on January 15, 2014 gave users access to banned account profiles. Moderators initially claimed that the bug was a new update. However, Arbolito confirmed that this was an error with ROBLOX's programming and will be nullified.
- On April 20th 2014, DiamondDragonair was banned for 'Parent Request'. This ban occurs when a user contacts ROBLOX, claims to be the parent of another user's account, and requests that the user's account is closed. Similar occurrences have appeared on the Off Topic forum.
- Many users believe that banned users go to a dark, scary place called Banland.
