Originally, whenever a user created an account, builderman would be their first friend automatically. Since the implementation of "Followers" in early February 2015, users started with no friends. Additionally, all users who had him as a friend are now following him, and he has no friends on his friends' list.
When a user created an account builderman would automatically send the user the following message:
"Welcome to Roblox!
"Hello, and welcome to Roblox! My name is Builderman.

Originally, he had an orange torso with a wrench T-shirt, black arms, black legs, a yellow head, and a BC Hard Hat. His look changed around 2011. The BC Hard Hat was changed to a TBC Hard Hat, and he wore a shirt and pants and the 2.0 package. Later, his face was changed to Mr. Chuckles. On July 1, 2017, builderman's skin colour was changed to grey due to the Avatar Editor update.
Builderman's username was originally set to "BuilderMan" in 2006. Around 2007, his name changed to "Builderman". Later on, it was set to "builderman" and still remains this way.
- Before the friends and followers update, builderman had the most friends on ROBLOX with over 60 million default friends.
- The user Flashingjustice was builderman's only friend not transferred to a follower later on more players were added as builderman's friends for unknown reasons but they have all been removed since late 2015.
- builderman is one of the few players to have a hat named after themselves.
- builderman currently has the most followers on ROBLOX (about 68 million).
- builderman might possibly be the first user to change their username on ROBLOX.
- There was a debate to who the builderman account belongs to. Some said it belonged to erik.cassel, even though david.baszucki created the account in 2006. Little change has been done with the account since its creation that is due to the account being originally intended to be a message bot along with ROBLOX. Due to a video recently released by Roblox, it has been confirmed that Builderman is, in fact, David Baszucki. He explicitly stated that "I used to log in as builderman". That ended this debate.
- Series one of ROBLOX toys included a toy of builderman. This toy is featured in two ROBLOX toy videos, one in the 2nd episode of the work at a pizza place toy series, where he can be seen getting a sausage pizza from the delivery boy, when he get's presented the order, he says that he ordered only cheese. The pizza delivery boy then wipes the sausages of the pizza then presenting it to him again. He also appears in the capture the flag video, where he can be seen playing capture the flag with other ROBLOXians. The videos can be watched here and here.
- His original name was BuilderMan.
