The ROBLOX Rally 2011 was the first ROBLOX convention that occurred on August 1, 2011 at the Exploratorium. The conference was first announced by Telamon (currently Shedletsky) on July 31, 2011 through a blog post.
The purpose of the conference was for players to meet up with each other and to discuss ROBLOX, ask questions to the ROBLOX staff, and find out about future updates to the game. One of the most notorious updates that was discussed at the ROBLOX Rally 2011 was the new ROBLOX terrain. This ignited controversy throughout ROBLOX, with players accusing the ROBLOX administrators of copying rival game Minecraft. Despite this, terrain is still a feature on ROBLOX.
Tickets were sold for $10.00, and participants who were under the age of 12 had to attend with someone over the age of 16.
At the ROBLOX Rally 2011, five different awards were given. Overall, ten players received awards while at the conference. Each award was named after someone throughout history that was famous for the same thing that the player receiving the award was also famous for.
