Information

The current administrator badge, used since early March 2019.

The administrator flair used on the developer forum.

Administrators, or admins, are Roblox employees who have 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 members of the staff 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 assume the badge as employees after being hired, and Roblox currently has over 350 employees with this badge.

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 18 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

All Roblox employees have the administrator badge on their profiles, and in-game they will have a Roblox logo next to their name on the player list, allowing users to distinguish them from regular players with ease. 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 are lying and should 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]
