Ban

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 warnings before being banned, and the amount of warnings a user can obtain before getting an actual ban varies. 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.

Ban Levels

There are eleven main ban levels:

Name of Ban Description
Forum Ban

All of the player's forum posts are replaced with the text [ Content Deleted ], and the user can't create new posts on the forums.

0x1 Error Ban A player who creates mature content will receive this type of ban. A 0x1 error is displayed when trying to connect to a game.
Parent Request

This ban occurs when a "parent" of a user contacts ROBLOX and requests their child's account to be closed. Multiple occurrences have happened on the Off-Topic forum.

Reminder

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.

Warning

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.

An example of a warning.

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.
Account Deletion

A player's account is permanently locked. Users who try to view a terminated player profile will see Requested page not found.. Very serious violations of the Terms of Service will result in an account deletion.

Poison 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. Unlike an IP ban, poisoned users are allowed to enter the ROBLOX website and play as a guest.
IP Ban

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. IP banned users cannot play as guest or enter the website at all.

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. Also the Group Recruiting Plaza made by ClanAtlas is also a exploiter magnet. People are often placed to what looks like StickMasterLuke's Fencing game. Also sometimes there is exploiting orbs, a way of admin that makes you nil inside the space, but gives you Kohl's Admin, made by Kohltastrophe, a well known banned-ROBLOXian that made one of the first advanced admin scripts besides Person299's admin.

Appeals

Users are encouraged to appeal a moderation action through an email to appeals@roblox.com. If the moderation action is deemed to be unfair, it can be lifted. Many users believe that the ROBLOX appeals system is unfair, and users who purchase a premium membership are more likely to have a ban appealed; this has not been proven.

Trivia

  • Some users claim to have been banned for no logical reason. A rumor spread throughout 2011-2013 noted that the moderator MSE6 [1] bans 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.
  • b1tsh1ft has been rumored to ban users in a range of forum topics that make a thread in which does not belong or does not make sense to the forum topic itself.
