builderman is an inactive administrator who joined on March 8, 2006.
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. Additionally, when a user created an account builderman would automatically send the user the following message:
"Hello, and welcome!

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. Later, his face was changed to Mr. Chuckles.
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 certainly has the most followers on ROBLOX.
- builderman might possibly be the first user to change their username on ROBLOX.
- There is a debate to who the builderman account belongs to. Some says 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.
