Ban

A ban occurs when a player violates the ROBLOX Terms of Service or Privacy Policy. Only the ROBLOX staff can ban users from the ROBLOX service.

Players are typically given reminders or warnings on their first offense, and the amount of reminders/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 or commands.

An in-game ban, not given by ROBLOX staff but instead by game owners, only restricts the player's access to a specific game. But players with in-game bans still have full access to the ROBLOX website and all other games.

Criticism

Many users who have created a new account state that their previous account has been banned for no apparent reason. The Mobile App has been known to do that. Users (including me who is editing this script) will try to log in to their account but it says that it can't connect. Then it comes to a screen saying that they're permanently banned. Some users have gotten banned because their "parent" emailed ROBLOX to ban them. They probably don't do that because some users use their own email to sign up.

Ban Levels

Users who violate ROBLOX's Terms of Service will be given one of these 15 reprimands. They range from a stern reminder to follow ROBLOX's guidelines to having the user's IP permanently blocked from the ROBLOX service. Some ban levels are not present in a user's moderation history.

Type of Ban Description Images
Forum ban (Postwipe)

All of the player's forum posts are replaced with the string [ Content Deleted ]. This does not prevent them from creating new posts. However, a moderation action can occur after the player's posts becomes [ Content Deleted ].

Error 0x1 A user tries playing a game but they get an error saying "Roblox cannot startup. User code = 0x1." These "bans" are commonly given out to players who have created adult material.

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 ROBLOX's Terms of Service. This particular level of "ban" is known to disconnect users from a game they're currently in. This type of ban is no longer used.

Warning

This moderation action is similar to a reminder (as a second warning). 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.

Poison ban The player's account is deleted, and new account creation is disabled. All active users on the deleted player's specific IP address or linked to the deleted player's email have also been deleted. Unlike an IP ban, poisoned users are allowed to enter the ROBLOX website and play as a guest or log into an account that is not linked to the email of the deleted player.

IP ban

This type of ban is reserved for severe violations of the Terms of Service or federal law. All players on this IP Address is blocked for 7 days (1 week), meaning that they redirect to Code 403. This ban occurs when a player gets 5 accounts deleted. Sometimes you cannot be banned from the website. However, sometimes you don't have permission to view a page on the ROBLOX website.

Unauthorized credentials ban (Permanent IP) This is the most powerful ban a user can receive. All players on this IP address are permanently blocked. This is most likely by sending an appeal to appeals@roblox.com to see the appealing ban rules and have another account deleted. Also, on Wikipedia, similar to 403 Forbidden, the IP address requires authentication and has failed or not yet provided to access to the ROBLOX web service. This will redirect to Code 401.

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 methods developers can employ to identify exploiters. For instance, on Shedletsky's Sword Fight on the Heights, Shedletsky created a badge that is unobtainable through regular gameplay; users who exploit to obtain this badge are instantly identified and banned.

Appeals and Other Reasons to Contact ROBLOX

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, because appeals have a 1% chance of being accepted. And users who purchase a premium membership are more likely to have a ban appealed;although this has not been proven. If the player does not appeal within 3 weeks (21 days) then the account is no longer allowed to be reopened.

NewExporiationDate-0

A message bar notifying a banned BC member that he/she can cancel his membership for the duration of his/her ban.

Players with a premium membership who are banned receive an additional notification when their accounts are banned. This notification identifies when the player's ROBLOX membership will expire and how to contact ROBLOX if the player wants to cancel his/her membership for the duration of his/her ban.

Trivia

  • Some users claim to have been banned for no logical reason. A rumor spread throughout 2011–2013 noted that the moderator MSE6 bans users for no reason, such as for being Christian. B1tsh1ft has been rumored to ban users who post a topic within the wrong subforum. After b1tsh1ft was fired, the rumor spread to the new mod, EliteEinherjar.
  • Using a proxy or other means of changing an IP address in order to access one's terminated account or create a new unbanned account will result in the poison of that IP address and any accounts created by the proxy will be deleted.
  • A bug on January 15, 2014 gave users access to terminated 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 was later nullified.
