The first form of URI was founded on Sunday, August 14th 2011 at 5:30 AM GMT +7 on Facebook. At first, URI was named "Roblox Indonesia", as the purpose is only a community group for gathering Indonesians that play ROBLOX so that they can play together. Even a year after it's formation, Members on Facebook haven't reached 100 yet.
On February 2013, The Founder, maulanaasgaf, decided to change the group name to "United Roblox of Indonesia" Because "Roblox Indonesia" will become a mainstream name in Facebook if ROBLOX become a lot popular in Indonesia, which was proven in 2016.
On Wednesday, April 3rd 2013 at 4:00 PM GMT+7 United Roblox of Indonesia was made a group on ROBLOX by bryanltss, a friend of maulanaasgaf that has Builders Club at that time. Within minutes after it's creation, members reached 20.
Stamper Age (2013-2014)
URI continued to expand during this period, Most people from this age found URI by searching the keyword "Indonesia" on Group Search. URI made Personal Server 1 in summer 2013 as the base of the group's activity, which was used for meeting, speech, and other things. URI supported other Indonesian Groups like Angkatan Udara Republik Indonesia,Indonesian Soldier Legacy, and Garuda Indonesia. URI also held events like Indonesia's Independence Celebration, 2nd Anniversary of URI, and play ROBLOX Games together.
URI also launched it's President Program to replace the Founder's duty to manage the group. With Vice President and Ministers as the President's assistant. URI also formed Creative and Intelligence Team for supporting URI's program like events and other stuff. In the early of 2014, Indonesian Civil War broke out as Garuda Protector and AURI,Indonesian Batik Soldiers, and Roblox Military Forces of Indonesia fought to be the official military of Indonesia. URI acted as the mediator and was successful in stopping the war with the creation of a combined entity called Indonesian Special Forces. By the end of this age, URI members had reached about 1000 members.
Development Age (2014-2016)
After The Indonesian Civil War ended, most Indonesian Groups are united and prosperous. LeeLiQs, former IBS Soldier which later will become the Administrator of URI, offers the founder to make URI Hangout, a place of his creation, as the official group place of URI. The Founder accepted the offer and made LeeLiQs as the President of URI. After the supposed end of LeeLiQs's rule, his contribution for URI was so high that The Founder made him the Absolute "Administrator" of URI. URI then opened URI School in 2015 for educating Indonesians so that they have specialties on ROBLOX. URI School was founded by President Dafp also known as for his character nicked Dafinkanaf , During this age URI held a lot of events to make Indonesians comfortable in URI.
Member Boost (2016-2017)In January 2016, URI collaborated with a famous Youtuber in Indonesia, Gamersejati. The Youtuber attended an URI Event and as the result, Members tripled from 2500 to 10000 by the end of the year. URI also held a national competition called URI Model Show, which aimed to show Indonesia's Creativity to the World. It was attended by several countries including Malaysia. URI also ended the President Program, and changed the group system to Organization System. With URI Hangout being 2 years old and getting older, a replacement, URI Hangout II, was launched in December 2016. URI Also held 2nd real life meetup in Jakarta, January 7th 2017 at Gandaria City Mall. With the previous one in mid 2015 at Central Park, Jakarta.</p>
Group Genre Change (2017-Present)
The promotion of ROBLOX in Indonesia by Youtubers during 2016 was not very profitable to URI, most Indonesians are still out there and the ratio of Indonesian Players outside and inside URI grew larger because most Youtubers didn't promote URI in their videos. As a result, more community groups emerged and made URI less special as a community group. With LeeLiQs went to a vacuum, The Founder then changed the group system to a Company which provides Indonesian Players with education and entertainment. And thus URI Entertainment was launched. And URI became less powerful and function under the rule of The Republic of Indonesia. But URI still controls the Information and Discussion Center of the Indonesian Community.
