The current Administrator badge, used since early March 2019

An administrator, or admin, is a Roblox employee who may have also been granted the Administrator badge on the site. Some employees are given special privileges to perform certain actions on the platform that regular users cannot do, however not all staff members have these powers. These include the ability to ban and unban user accounts, IP addresses, control the site's functions, and add or edit avatar shop items.

Administrators usually assume the badge as employees after being hired.

Becoming an employee

In order to become a Roblox employee, the person is usually required to work at Roblox Headquarters in San Mateo, California or in Shenzhen, China. However, some contractors and employees are hired from all over the world: InceptionTime and several members of the international developer engagement team do not work at the headquarters, for example. You also must be at least eighteen years of age or older to have an actual job at Roblox. Roblox publishes a list of the jobs available and people can apply for these jobs.

Identifying administrators

Many Roblox employees have the administrator badge on their profiles, and in-game they will have the Roblox logo next to their name on the player list, allowing users to distinguish them from regular players with ease. In addition to this, administrators can also be identified by their chat messages, which are a contrasting gold. If a player who does not have the badge claims to be an administrator or a moderator in a message somewhere on the website, they might be lying and it may be reported (as stated on the badge itself). There are some accounts owned by developers or moderators that do not possess the badge, but they will not act as administrators or moderators from these accounts.

Certain administrators such as InceptionTime and Builderman are more widely recognized than other employees in the community and typically garner the most feedback due to their iconic presence on the platform.[citation needed]
